2. Betsy Hilliard,
Senior Scientist at Valkyrie Intelligence
Her background is in developing AI and decision support tools for economic markets markets at USAA, Google, Yahoo and various government labs. Her first experience with graphs was when her father taught her about them so she'd stop waisting paper trying to disprove the 4 Color Map Theorem.

Join us on April 15, 2019 to celebrate the birth of the inventor of graph theory, Leonhard Euler!.

Leonhard Euler (pronounced ‘OY-lər) is a Swiss mathematician, physicist, astronomer, logician and engineer. He is responsible for some of the most influential mathematical discoveries, including graph theory.

In 1735, Euler presented a solution to the problem known as the Seven Bridges of Königsberg. The city of Königsberg, Prussia was set on the Pregel River, and included two large islands that were connected to each other and the mainland by seven bridges. The problem is to decide whether it is possible to follow a path that crosses each bridge exactly once and returns to the starting point. It is not possible: there is no Eulerian circuit. This solution is considered to be the first theorem of graph theory, specifically of planar graph theory.

Euler also discovered the formula V-E+F=2 relating the number of vertices, edges and faces of a convex polyhedron, and hence of a planar graph. The constant in this formula is now known as the Euler characteristic for the graph (or other mathematical object), and is related to the genus of the object. The study and generalization of this formula, specifically by Cauchy and L’Huilier, is at the origin of topology.

Help us lead this day of celebration, collaboration and advocacy around the topic of graph-thinking and those who have accelerated thought leadership in this space.

We invite our Neo4j users and other graphdata users around Austin to participate by gathering with friends and colleagues on this monumental day!

There is a plan to build a big graph from the events and attendees . Please Stay tuned.
