0213 - The Five Graphs of Love
The iDating industry cares about interactions and connections. Those two concepts are closely linked. If someone has a connection to another person, through a shared friend or a shared interest, they are much more likely to interact. Graph databases are optimized for querying connections between people, things, interests, or really anything that can be connected.
Dating sites and apps worldwide have begun to use graph databases to achieve competitive gain. Neo4j provides thousand-fold performance improvements and massive agility benefits over relational databases, enabling new levels of performance and insight. Join us for a webinar, presented by Amanda Laucher, that discusses the five graphs of love, and how companies like eHarmony, Hinge and AreYouInterested.com, are now using graph algorithms to create more interactions and connections.
