We are back to 2020 with three very interesting talks about Neo4j and network science.
DANIEL DARABOS, Senior Software Engineer at Lynx Analytics
Intro to Graph Neural Networks
Neural networks are the best known solution for a wide variety of problems on tabular data, images, sounds, natural language text, and even games. Applying them to each different form of input comes with its own challenges. This talk is about applying neural networks to graphs.
I will start with a detailed explanation of the most commonly used architecture, the graph convolutional neural network. I will briefly mention a few variations and share some real world applications. I will end with a practical walkthrough so you can do this on your own graph.

Reciprocal Consistency in Distributed Graph Databases
This talk will discuss data consistency in a distributed, partitioned graph database. Specifically, it will focus on reciprocal consistency, which if not maintained can lead to irreversible data corruption that can spread at alarming rates. A lightweight mechanism we have developed for preserving reciprocal consistency will be presented and discussed.

Communication Networks in Organizations: How to Benefit from Your Own Data
What would happen if all the interactions among the individual making part of the same company were stored and accessible to be analyzed? In this age where everything is digital companies with a remote culture are arising and with them the possibility to study their evolution and their composition. Is it possible to infer the structure of the company just looking at the pattern of interaction between people? How much can we say about the efficiency of the communication inter and intra team? Is it possible to predict the formation of a team even before the team exists?
In this talk, I will present a use case focused on a UK based company.
