Discovering the power of Actions

Discovering the power of Actions

13 Jan 2022 by Esther Bergmark · 5 min read Hume

About a year ago, I first logged into Hume - in the morning, I had started my new job at GraphAware, and a few hours later, I had a canvas in front of me with a few person nodes connected by relationships. Hume Visualisation. The graph: a murder mystery. Me: a newbie, never typed a line of code in any query language.My eyes went all over the screen - “how can I make this thing work?” - and got stopped on the right-hand side, where a sidebar was labelled with “ACTIONS.” “Well,” I thought, “Action is just what I need...

GraphAware in 2021: Reflections

29 Dec 2021 by Luanne Misquitta · 6 min read GraphAware

I like to think of 2021 as the year of consolidation for GraphAware. The growth, changes, hits and misses all somehow began to pull together the threads that have existed or developed through the last 8 years into one strong, coherent strand.Hume - more solid than everHume delighted even more organisations around the world with compelling graph-powered insights. This year has been a very successful one for our customers who use Hume to detect fraud, save lives, protect citizens and build knowledge graphs for drug discovery, biochemistry and research. Their success inspires us to innovate all the time and evolve...

Temporal and Spatial Analysis in Knowledge Graphs

Temporal and Spatial Analysis in Knowledge Graphs

21 Dec 2021 by Ondřej Paterka · 3 min read Knowledge Graph Beginner

Graphs are a natural fit for investigative use cases. Whenever you want to analyse a situation containing people, objects, locations, and events (POLE), graphs emphasising relationships between objects are your natural companion.To gain a basic situational understanding, you need to first analyse and understand the rough shape of your data. Who is who, what is what, and how is everything in your model connected. The closer the model is to the actual reality, the more reliable will be the answers you want to get from it. Here is where you don’t want to be constrained by fixed tables (looking at...

What you need to know before you choose microservices - part 2

What you need to know before you choose microservices - part 2

16 Dec 2021 by Zsolt Katona · 8 min read Engineering

“Alright, could you please tell us a few benefits and drawbacks of working with microservices?” - starts the usual tech interview question, and the traditional answer often follows: “They’re smaller; therefore, they’re easier to develop and to troubleshoot. There’s better scaling control on parts of the system. They can be written in different programming languages. They can be deployed individually.”In this series of articles about microservices, we’ll go through the widespread notions of what it feels like to work with microservices. We’ll attempt to explain under what circumstances some - arguably a little blunt - misconceptions hold true. We’ll do...
