Next 31st of May the GRADES workshop will take place in Melbourne within the ACM/SIGMOD presentation. GRADES started as an initiative of the Linked Data Benchmark Council in the SIGMOD/PODS 2013 held in New York. Read more information about the event here.
Note: this post is a continuation of "SNB Interactive Part 1 - What is SNB Interactive Really About?" post by Orri Erling.
SNB Interactive is the wild frontier, with very few rules. This is necessary, among other reasons, because there is no standard property graph data model, and because the contestants support a broad mix of programming models, ranging from in-process APIs to declarative query.
LDBC is presenting two papers at the next edition of the ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference held in Melbourne from May 31st to June 4th, 2015. The annual SCM SIGMOD/PODS conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools and experiences.
During last TUC Meeting in Barcelona we were glad to welcome Mark D. Wilkinson from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid with his presentation "SADI: A design-pattern for “native” Linked-Data Semantic Web Services".
Check the slides and video to learn more about how SADI uses OWL and RDF and about SHARE the health research environment that answers SPARQL queries with SADI.
This post is the first in a series of blogs analyzing the LDBC Social Network Benchmark Interactive workload. This is written from the dual perspective of participating in the benchmark design and of building the OpenLink Virtuoso implementation of same.
The second part of presentations during the first day at the TUC Meeting in Barcelona started with the presentation from Jerven Bolleman from the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics called "20 billion triples in production".
Watch Jerven Bolleman talking about why and how the Uniprot SPARQL endpoint allows working with billion of triples from biological datasets.
To end the first day slot of the morning presentations during last 6th TUC Meeting in Barcelona Claudio Martella from VUA was presenting Lighthouse: Large-scale graph pattern matching on Giraph.
Watch Claudio Martella to learn more about Lighthouse and how it uses Giraph and Cypher.
For the third presentation this last 6th TUC Meeting held in Barcelona we were pleased to welcome Tomer Sagi from HP.
Watch his presentation called "HP Labs: Titan DB on LDBC Interactive" where Tomer introduced the history of the research performed at HP along with his latest work fields.
The second presentation during last LDBC's 6th TUC Meeting that took place in Barcelona was called SPIMBENCH: A Scalable, Schema-Aware, Instance Matching Benchmark for the Semantic Publishing Domain and presented by Tzanina Saveta from FORTH.
Watch Tzanina Saveta presenting the benchmark for the Semantic Publishing domain.
In a previous 3-part blog series we touched upon the difficulties of executing the LDBC SNB Interactive (SNB) workload, while achieving good performance and scalability. What we didn't discuss is why these difficulties were unique to SNB, and what aspects of the way we perform workload execution are scientific contributions - novel solutions to previously unsolved problems. This post will highlight the differences between SNB and more traditional database benchmark workloads. Additionally, it will motivate why we chose to develop a new wo
