Companies spend $$$ to drive traffic to their web-sites; however, the conversion rate remains elusive. Humanvest increases on-line user engagent via social proof, providing more visibility into commonalities between any two individuals. Originally designed as a crowd-funding business, Humanvest has expanded to include lead generation, risk management and e-commerce services to customers. Humanvest uses Neo4j as an integral part of its services, to produce results fast while having flexibility in adding new datasets.
Join our webinar with Humanvest and Neo Technology, as we discuss how graph databases are used to increase on-line user engagement via social proof.
Speaker: Taek Chung, CEO/Founder, Humanvest

The two most commonly asked questions at GraphTO are:
"What graph database should I use for problem XYZ?"
"Which query language is better?"
On Thursday May 23, Olivier Yiptong and Darrick Wiebe will be presenting an overview of the kaleidoscope of databases and query languages that industry is using today.
Gates open at 6pm, presentations start at 6:30, and we can again make our way to the Charlotte Room to keep the religious debates going from 8:30.
Hope to see you there!
PS - Yes, to answer the third most commonly asked question: beer will be provided.

Graph Databases have many use cases in many industries, but one of the most interesting ones that are emerging is in the Gaming industry. Because of its real-time nature, games are a perfect environment to make use of graph-based queries that are the basis for in-game recommendations. Another interesting use case is the use of graph databases in the media industry. After an introduction to graph databases, Swedish based Ozma Games and Danish based Historyline will share their experiences with the use of the graph database.
* Introduction to the Neo4j graph databases
* Presentations by Historyline and Ozma Games
* Lessons learned
* Questions and answers
The event is free, but sign-up is required. If you do not show up - without cancelling your order - you have to pay a fee of 250 DKK/ticket. The fee will be donated to an open source or open data project of your choice.
Sandwiches and drinks will be served.
About the speakers
Knowledge first becomes really interesting when looking at it in
agreater perspective. Although historic events happen over time and are interrelated it has not been possible to observe and research them this way. With traditional historic sites and encyclopedias, historic events has to be queried one at a time, and to explore them you must read in-depth articles. Due to the format, relationships and dependencies to other historic events are typically not clear and often diminished to links where you can read more. Historyline is a graphical timeline of history. The timeline shows events in the order they happened and makes it possible also to include other historic events happening at the same time that could be affecting each other.
Graphs are everywhere. From websites adding social capabilities to Telco’s providing personalized customer services to innovative bioinformatics research, organizations are adopting graph databases as the best way to model and query connected data. Neo Technology researchers have pioneered graph databases since 2000 and have been instrumental in bringing the power of the graph to numerous organizations worldwide, including 25 Global 2000 customers, such as Cisco, HP, Accenture, Deutsche Telekom, and Telenor. Serving customers in production for over a decade, Neo4j is the world’s leading graph database with the largest ecosystem of partners and tens of thousands of successful deployments.

This tutorial covers the core functionality of the Neo4j graph database. With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, attendees will quickly learn how easy it is to develop a Neo4j-backed application.
Topics covered include:
Introduction to Neo4j, from installation to basic operation
Fundamentals of graph modeling
Querying, creating and updating with the Cypher query language
A survey of real-world use cases
Opportunity to consult on current projects, possible implementations and proof of concepts
Attendees won't need any previous experience with Neo4j, NOSQL databases or specific development languages, but will need their own laptop.
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
