The Emergence of the Enterprise DataFabric - Neo4j Graph Database. By Clark Richey, CTO of FactGem | June 1, 2017 Editor’s Note: This presentation was given by Mark Kvamme and Clark Richey at GraphConnect San Francisco in October 2016.
Presentation Summary Enterprises are faced with a variety of challenges when it comes to managing data, largely due to the disparate storage of a data in aging infrastructure. This results in companies using huge amount of resources — personnel, time, hardware and money — bringing this data together in an attempt to glean insights. By creating a DataFabric using tools such as the Neo4j graph database, enterprises are able to transform into dynamic, scalable and modern enterprises. Full Presentation: The Emergence of Enterprise DataFabric What we’re going to be talking about today is the best way to introduce graphs to enterprises, and all the typical enterprise challenges graphs can solve:
Building your bot's brain with Node.js and spaCy. This is a guest post by Wah Loon Keng, the author of spacy-nlp, a client that exposes spaCy's NLP text parsing to Node.js (and other languages) via Socket.IO.
Natural Language Processing and other AI technologies promise to let us build applications that offer smarter, more context-aware user experiences. However, an application that's almost smart is often very, very dumb. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to set up a better brain for your applications — a Contextual Knowledge Base Graph. Applications feel particularly stupid when they make mistakes that a human never would, but which a human can sort of understand. These mistakes reveal how crude the system's actual logic is, and the illusion that you're "talking" to something "intelligent" shatters.
To avoid these mistakes, we'd like our application to have a way to remember what the user has told it. I call this memory storage mechanism a Contextual Knowledge Base Graph (CKBG).

I have been working with graph visualizations for almost 20 years now, but only recently have I begun looking into graph databases.
Shortly after I got introduced to Neo4j, I found that when looking at existing dataset examples, I often felt the need to look at and better understand the underlying schema of the data. Although a Neo4j database does not need a schema, most of the time data will adhere to a schema and without one, creating elegant and efficient queries to gain insight into your database becomes rather difficult. I spoke with other Neo4j users, and they told me that they had come across the same problem. In larger projects, there should be a separate documentation about the database schema, but as it is the case very often with documentation, either it doesn’t exist or it is out of sync with reality. Getting the Schema. Graph Database with Neo4j and a .NET Client - The New Stack. Chris Skardon, Owner, Tournr Chris Skardon is the owner of Tournr and is a .NET developer in charge of maintaining the primary .NET client for Neo4j (a.k.a. the Neo4jClient).
Chris Skardon, Neo4j .Net expert and Michael Hunger, developer advocate for Neo4j, detail some interesting development attributes of the graph database approach. We’ve all experienced the challenges of trying to map complex domain object networks into a relational database. For all the help you might get from an Entity Framework or APIs like LINQ, it’s never been simple to do — especially when queries get complex and entities get more connected. Neo4j 3.0 With a .Net Driver: Neo4jClient - DZone Database. I started dabbling in Neo4j, a NoSQL graph database, around 2 years ago.
I have not used it much in the .Net world, and with the recent release of Neo4j 3.0, with its built-in .Net driver, I decided to have a go. I had looked at Neo4jClient (available via Nuget), a .Net driver for Neo4j written by Chris Skardon and Readify, in the past, so decided to have a look at both .Net drivers together. This post will look at Neo4jClient and my next post will look at the new official .Net driver that comes with Neo4j 3.0.
File > New Project I started with a basic MVC 4 project in Visual Studio, but for dabbling and testing, I would now recommend LinqPad. Introduction to Graph Databases using Neo4J and its .Net Client - CodeProject. GraphDbExamples - 13.2 KB.
We mostly use it for presentations, but also to show data models for Neo4j GraphGists and Neo4j Browser Guides. Because it also stores the positions of nodes, it’s always true to the same layout and doesn’t wiggle around. The User Interface is minimal: How to Design Retail Recommendation Engines with Neo4j. Neo4j et C# – Context is king… Généralités.
Neo4j, A Graph Database For Building Recommendation Engines, Gets A Visual Overhaul. Part of the problem with any powerful technology is how it is perceived.
It might be something that is too early for its time or it may just need those years of development and use for the market to catch up to its potential. That is true of graph databases like Neo4j, which now has a new graphical interface that helps people map relationships between different people, places or things. There is one simple way to think about graph databases, said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology and one of the original developers of the graph database technology.

Cypher MERGE Explained. 31 Jul 2014by Luanne Misquitta With MERGE set to replace CREATE UNIQUE at some time, the behavior of MERGE can sometimes be tricky to understand.
Here’s a summary of what MERGE does: It ensures that a pattern exists in the graph by creating it if it does not exist already It will not use partially existing patterns- it will attempt to match the entire pattern and create the entire pattern if missing When unique constraints are defined, MERGE expects to find at most one node that matches the pattern It also allows you to define what should happen based on whether data was created or matched The key to understanding what part of the pattern is created if not matched is the concept of bound elements. So what is a bound element? An element is bound if the identifier was used in an earlier clause of the cypher statement (thanks to Andrés and Anders for this definition). The Basics Merge acts as combination of MATCH and CREATE.
Modelling Data in Neo4j: Qualifying Relationships. 24 Oct 2013by Michal Bachman In the last post of our “Neo4j Modelling for Beginners” series, we looked at bidirectional relationships. In this post, we compare the implications of qualifying relationships by using different relationship types versus using relationship properties. Properties as Qualifiers. Creating a Neo4j Example Graph with the Arrows Tool. Introduction to Graph Databases using Neo4J and its .Net Client - CodeProject. Neo4j - Create a Relationship using Cypher. Just like creating nodes in Neo4j, we can use the CREATE statement to create relationships between those nodes. The statement for creating a relationship consists of CREATE, followed by the details of the relationship that you're creating.
Example Let's create a relationship between some of the nodes that we created previously. First, let's create a relationship between an artist and an album. Here's the Cypher CREATE statement to create the above relationship: MATCH (a:Artist),(b:Album)WHERE a.Name = "Strapping Young Lad" AND b.Name = "Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing"CREATE (a)-[r:RELEASED]->(b)RETURN r Explanation of the Above Code First, we use a MATCH statement to find the two nodes that we want to create the relationship between.
