Graph Technology and Data Science Workshop

By Neo4J 

Time and Location

Sep-9, 2022 at 9:00am - 3:00pm EDT

The Westin Atlanta Perimeter North

Workshop Summary

Curious as to what graph data science (GDS) is all about? Come get a refresher on graph, graph data science, and how you can get value out of the connections in your data! This workshop will provide you with a crash course in how to leverage graphs within your data science workflows. The hands-on section focuses on providing concrete examples of how to interact with the Neo4j database from a python notebook, create graph-y features, train an ML model, and then use graph visualization tools to communicate results to other teams. Newbies to graph data science as well as experienced graph practitioners are welcome to join and hear the latest developments in the Neo4j GDS Library.
