COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

About TechTalks:

COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

About this talk:

Speaker: Dann Stayskal

Graph databases offer a unique way of looking at data. Rather than the familiar tables of data, graph databases store data as relationships between named things. So, they're an ideal choice for social networks, geogrpahic route planning, and campaign finance modeling.

In this week's tech talk, Dann Stayskal walks us through how to configure a graph database called Neo4J to answer a few questions about social graphs: out of all connections on facebook, twitter, google+, and linkedin, who would it recommend to follow next?

This will be a public-accessible tech talk with no technical background necessary to follow along!

All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to [email protected] along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.
