At its core, machine learning is about efficiently identifying patterns and relationships in data. Many tasks, such as finding associations among terms so you can make accurate search recommendations or locating individuals within a social network who have similar interests, are naturally expressed as graphs. Graph-Powered Machine Learning teaches you how to use graph-based algorithms and data organization strategies to develop superior machine learning applications.
about the technology
Graph-based machine learning is an incredibly powerful tool for any task that involves pattern matching in large data sets. Applications include security concerns like identifying fraud or detecting network intrusions, application areas like social networking or natural language processing, and better user experiences through accurate recommendations and smart search. By organizing and analyzing your data as graphs your applications work more fluidly with graph-centric algorithms like nearest neighbor or page rank where it’s important to quickly identify and exploit relevant relationships. Modern graph data stores, like Neo4j or Amazon Neptune, are readily available tools that support graph-powered machine learning.
about the book
Graph-Powered Machine Learning introduces you to graph technology concepts, highlighting the role of graphs in machine learning and big data platforms. You’ll get an in-depth look at techniques including data source modeling, algorithm design, link analysis, classification, and clustering. As you master the core concepts, you’ll explore three end-to-end projects that illustrate architectures, best design practices, optimization approaches, and common pitfalls. Author Alessandro Negro’s extensive experience building graph-based machine learning systems shines through in every chapter, as you learn from examples and concrete scenarios based on his own work with real clients!

There is a lot of really great material here. The author really knows his stuff.
Really interesting take on Graphs and their role in machine learning whilst providing a clear vision as to how to apply them to your own work.
A great book. I've enjoyed the discussion parts. The author gives real insights about how to deal with some issues, what is working or not and he is capable to share his love for property graphs technologies with conviction and strength.
A really neat book. It introduces the use of graphs both as a means to store data and as an approach to data mining. I haven't seen anything like it.
