Impossible is Nothing by Jim Webber, Neo4j's Chief Scientist

Impossible is Nothing
Jim Webber, Chief Scientist at Neo Technology

There was a time when crossing oceans was a Herculean effort and humans died from commonplace bacterial infections. But time and technology have moved on making the once seemingly impossible a reality and then a commodity, fuelling our ambition for the next level of impossible feats. In data science, graph technology has followed a similar course: analyses and computation which were once considered impossible (or at least prohibitively expensive) are now routinely handled by graph databases like Neo4j.

In this talk we'll cover some impossible use cases made possible by graph technology: from high volume and personalised real-world logistics through to advanced access security and permissions in computer systems, and finding your ideal next job, we'll see how Neo4j powers the current crop of impossible systems and discuss where is heading for building the next set of impossible apps!

PLEASE make sure you register on the Skillsmatter site to make access to the venue quicker. If it tells you you're on the waiting list just come along anyway, we'll find space!

After the talk we'll make our way to The Slaughtered Lamb to continue the conversation over a beer.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
