Graph for All Million Dollar Challenge to tackle global challenges

By TigerGraph

Have you ever wondered how the world’s top search engines and social media platforms are able to make such accurate recommendations for search terms? There’s a graph database behind the scenes, and that’s just the beginning. Graph technology sits behind many machine learning and artificial intelligence systems, fraud and compliance systems used by the world’s largest corporations, and countless others.

Graph databases present a departure from the traditional ‘rows and columns’ method of storing and presenting information. Instead, they are designed to accentuate the connections and relationships between records, in the form of vertices and edges, making it possible to reveal deeper insights into those data sets.
