Big thanks to Connected Data meetup group regular Valerio Malenchino of Ontology for his really in depth overview of how telecoms providers use Connected Data tech. It was really interesting to see how semantic impact analysis can be conducted in a way that is both accessible and detailed for users.

Valerio gave us a great introduction to both why triplestores are used for integrating disparate data sources as well as some practical examples of the analytics that are applied to answer connected data questions.

MeetUp – what connects graphs and linked data?

  |   Events

Another successful MeetUp completed! We wanted to thank everyone for attending. Great talks from Nigel Higgs and Jesús Barrasa. Nigel quickly explained that this MeetUp aims to bring together Graph database and Linked data professionals to spark new ideas and conversations. Jesús presented his work on how Explicit Semantics can be used in Graph Databases using Neo4j. This talk sparked a lot of interesting ideas and questions about merging these two technologies together, what would be the opportunities and threats of this approach.
