Web Summit’s conferences are supported by a powerful and scalable app, designed to help the company expand their events and help attendees network. Underlying this unique app is Neo4j, which allowed Web Summit to quickly and easily deploy and extend the advanced algorithms that power best-in-industry event recommendations. These recommendations ensure attendees make the best connections at and get the most out of their time at the conferences.

For Web Summit software engineer Evan O’Brien, “Our conferences enable the best possible networking opportunities for our attendees, and there’s no better way to represent a network than with a graph.”

Web Summit’s lead data scientist, Steven Tobin, says graph database Neo4j is the best way to model such relationships: “Neo4j is a perfect fit for our approach to conferences, letting us model and leverage attendees’ existing relationships and all their interactions during the conferences in real time.”

O’Brien adds, “Neo4j’s technology not only makes what we do possible, it also makes it scalable.”

Neo4j’s CEO Emil Eifrem is set to present ‘The past, present and future of graphs and connected data,’ at the upcoming Lisbon Web Summit (November 8, Binate.io stage, 11.40am-12.00pm). Emil will cover the state of the graph database landscape, the power of connecting data, people, systems and things and the popular graph use cases with real-life examples ranging from space engineering with NASA to the Panama Papers investigatory journalism. You will also hear his thoughts on the future of graph technology and its position in emerging use cases such as machine learning and AI.
