“Abstract:
Visualizations are a powerful way to simplify and interpret the underlying patterns in data. It is incredibly useful and helps businesses make better data-driven decisions. Use of graphs is one such visualization technique.”

“Graphs are mathematical structures used to study relationships between objects and entities. These entities can be either customers, products, operations, or devices. Graphs are leveraged mostly in social network analysis, fraud detection, supply chain, and search engine optimization. By mapping these relationships in connected data, graph analytics is used to unlock more insightful questions and produce more accurate outcomes.”

“We can use Graphs to model different structures and problems in an efficient manner and it provides a mechanism to do that in cases where the data is arranged in a specific way.”

“Learning Objectives:

  1. An understanding of Graph Theory
  2. What graph algorithms are and their Practical applications
  3. A broad overview of the field of graph analytics to learn new ways to model, store, retrieve and analyze graph-structured data.
  4. And much more”
