WORLD CHANGING JOURNALISM Neo4J: https://neo4j.com/graphs4good/ The Panama Papers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_Papers) represent one of the world's largest data leaks in history: 11.5 million records exposing a system that enables crime, corruption, and wrongdoing, hidden by secretive offshore companies. Over 400 journalist members of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) worked for a year mining and investigating the data stored in a Neo4j graph database. This resulted in the resignation of the PM of Iceland, Supreme Court hearings for Pakistan's PM, the arrest of people money laundering for Mexican drug cartels, and plenty of more investigations and regulatory reforms. *Speaker bios listed in the images below! - - - Interested in being a part of this event and supporting these amazing companies?
