Book description
Learn how graph algorithms can help you leverage relationships within your data to develop intelligent solutions and enhance your machine learning models. With this practical guide,developers and data scientists will discover how graph analytics deliver value, whether they’re used for building dynamic network models or forecasting realworld behavior.
Mark Needham and Amy Hodler from Neo4j explain how graph algorithms describe complex structures and reveal difficulttofind patterns—from finding vulnerabilities and bottlenecksto detecting communities and improving machine learning predictions. You’ll walk through handson examples that show you how to use graph algorithms in Apache Spark and Neo4j, two of the most common choices for graph analytics.
