Graph + AI World 2020, First Open Conference on Accelerating AI with Graph, Announced for September 28-30, 2020

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Aug. 20, 2020 – TigerGraph, the only scalable graph database for the enterprise, today announced Graph + AI World 2020, the first industry conference devoted to democratizing and accelerating AI and machine learning through graph algorithms and graph analytics. The virtual event organized by TigerGraph, set for September 28-30, will unite data scientists, engineers, architects, IT professionals and business leaders within the rapidly growing graph analytics community. Graph + AI World will feature speakers from UnitedHealth Group, JPMorgan Chase, Jaguar Land Rover, Intuit, Accenture, KPMG, Xilinx and many other Fortune 500 and startup companies. TigerGraph has also invited those doing innovative work with AI or ML and graph algorithms to share their experiences as event speakers. The Graph + AI World call for papers is now open through September 10.

Graph algorithms combined with AI are the foundation of modern data and analytics. In fact, graph analytics is projected to push AI to the next level, as organizations of all sizes within several industries reap the data benefits of graph. Gartner has estimated that the application of graph processing and graph DBMSs will grow at 100 percent annually through 2022. Despite continual growth of the graph analytics market, industry knowledge about how to effectively use graph with AI and machine learning is limited. TigerGraph is hosting Graph + AI World to democratize the use of graph with AI and machine learning. The conference will showcase new deployments and first-of-a-kind solutions, including next-generation recommendation engines, fraud and anomaly detection and knowledge graphs powering more intelligent conversational AI.

“When the graph community recently came together to establish the standard graph query language GQL — the first new standard in 40 years — we saw a real need for Graph + AI World.

At the event, everyone can share and learn from their peers about how they are using graph as a foundational technology to accelerate AI,” said Dr. Yu Xu, CEO and founder, TigerGraph. “Over three days, the greatest minds in our industry will share their knowledge through training and talks. Attendees will see how big data, graph analytics and AI can solve the world’s toughest problems, as well as what we can expect in the future from these forward-looking technologies.”
