Graph Databases have many use cases in many industries, but one of the most interesting ones that are emerging is in the Gaming industry. Because of its real-time nature, games are a perfect environment to make use of graph-based queries that are the basis for in-game recommendations. Another interesting use case is the use of graph databases in the media industry. After an introduction to graph databases, Swedish based Ozma Games and Danish based Historyline will share their experiences with the use of the graph database.

About the speakers


Knowledge first becomes really interesting when looking at it in
agreater perspective. Although historic events happen over time and are interrelated it has not been possible to observe and research them this way. With traditional historic sites and encyclopedias, historic events has to be queried one at a time, and to explore them you must read in-depth articles. Due to the format, relationships and dependencies to other historic events are typically not clear and often diminished to links where you can read more. Historyline is a graphical timeline of history. The timeline shows events in the order they happened and makes it possible also to include other historic events happening at the same time that could be affecting each other.
