Bryce Merkl Sasaki interviews Mar Cabra, the Editor of the Data & Research Unit at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), during GraphConnect Europe 2016.
In April 2016, the ICIJ used the Neo4j graph database and the graph visualization tool Linkurious to coordinate the cross-border investigation of a 2.6-TB leaked dataset from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca dubbed "the Panama Papers." The investigation involved over 370 reporters from over 100 media organization in 76 countries and required a number of big data open source tools in order to process and analyze the connections in 11.5 million documents of the dataset.
Mar discusses which tools and approaches her 3-developer team took in order to make this dataset accessible and digestible to an array of non-technical reports and seasoned data journalists alike.
This Intro to Graph Databases series is a collection of short videos getting folks started on Graph Databases. You'll learn why graph databases are special, how they're an antibiotic for some use cases, how the database is much more intuitive and efficient than RDBMS and how easy it is to get started. You'll also learn how to model your data in a Property Graph, how to architect your Neo4j environment in a polyglot form and more.
In future episodes, you'l learn querying Neo4j, using the Neo4j Browser, importing data, syncing MongoDB with Neo4j and more.
Rik Van Bruggen of the Neo4j team has interviewed over 60 different developers and other customers + users of graph databases. He keeps many of these interviews short, making it a great podcast to listen to while you're waiting for your code to compile!
