Sixth TUC Meeting: Recent Updates on IBM System G – GraphBIG and Temporal Data by Yinglong Xia (IBM)
On the second day of the 6th LDBC TUC Meeting that took place in Barcelona we welcomed Yinglong Xia from IBM Research with his presentation “Recent Updates on IBM System G – GraphBIG and Temporal Data”.
Yinglong Xia explains that the IBM Research team has been using the LDBC SNB graph datasets for GraphBIG, a graph benchmarking effort initiated by IBM System G (IBM’s graph database for high performance graph computing) and Georgia Tech HPArch. He also talks about their research on temporal graphs, and highlights its importance given that for a lot of real use cases dynamic graphs are needed. For example, in a Social Network Analytics scenario, it could be more interesting to see how a cluster in the social network changes over time than to know the characteristics of the cluster at a given time point. During the talk, two use cases are presented: forensic analysis on individual status and bitemporal data exploration.
