Show Notes

From social media to electricity grids and the internet itself, we live in a highly interconnected world. But traditional data science techniques don’t adequately allow for the relationships that can exist between data points in such networks. This is where graph data analysis comes into play. 

In this episode, Dr Alessandro Negro joins Dr Genevieve Hayes to discuss how data scientists can exploit the natural relationships that exist within network datasets through the use of graph-powered machine learning.
