Taming Galactus: How Marvel's Tech Team Understands its Fictional Universe

Marvel Entertainment has been telling stories set in their massive collaborative universe for over 70 years. While this universe has created an amazing slate of characters and stories across many different media, it has also created an incredible amount of complexity when it comes to representing this intellectual property as data. How can you model a universe where literally anything can happen? 

Join Huge and Marvel Entertainment's Peter Olson to learn how Marvel uses graph theory and the emerging NoSQL space to understand, model and ultimately represent the uncanny Marvel Universe.
