Graphs are Everywhere

No - not charts! Graphs are a data structure that are more than just the nodes and edges they contain: from mapping networks to representing arithmetic, from writing chat-bots to inferring relationships, applying graphs to a problem can quite often provide an elegant solution.

In this light-hearted and accessible talk, Chris will cover the basics of graphs as well as go over a few simple but fun examples of this versatile concept.
