Networks are all around us, both locally and globally, and are becoming increasingly complex. The prevalence of networks has led to the widespread use of network analysis tools. While network analysis in criminal intelligence is still a novel concept, there has been a growing interest in recent years as law enforcement agencies adopt cutting-edge graph-based tools to solve crimes.Graphs are an underutilised intelligence toolGraphs can provide valuable insights for intelligence analysts. They allow for a visual representation of relationships between individuals and groups, the detection of criminal patterns, and early identification of potential threats.
London, January 25th - GraphAware Hume announces partnership with the Western Australia Police Force to deliver criminal graph analytics.
Maritime piracy is one of the most serious threats to international trade and security. To combat piracy and ensure the safety of vessels, analysts and operators must have a thorough understanding of the real-time situation. Situational awareness (SA) is an important concept for those tasked with combating maritime piracy. It refers to the ability to understand the environment around a vessel and its crew, as well as the ability to recognize and respond to potential threats. This is an especially important skill for analysts looking to identify pirate activity and take action against it.
In the previous blog post, ”The challenges of intelligence analysis and how graphs solve them”, we saw how graphs truly streamline and enhance the workflow for intelligence teams. The next step in the process is setting up your graph.
Ranging across all the varied fields of intelligence, there is an ever-advancing process to enhance and optimise data analysis. For such mission-critical events, graph technology has emerged as an exceptional solution for all stages of the intelligence lifecycle, ensuring the absolute fastest and best results.A graph analytics solution like Hume provides a simple-to-use interface that allows intelligence analysts to search, visualise and analyse intelligence graphs. The most common intelligence analysis questions are graph-based. For instance, “How are person X and person Y connected?” or “Who are the most influential individuals within a criminal organisation?”.
The webinar Graphs in Criminal Intelligence was run by Dan Newland, General Manager of ANZ, GraphAware, who is highly experienced with the implementation of graph solutions in several government organisations in Australia.
The modernisation of data platforms and the ever-growing availability of data mean that analysts need tools that highlight the information they need to know and when they need to know it. Alerting has become a core feature in many case management and intelligence applications, helping intelligence analysts and investigators keep on top of the changing information landscape for their entities of interest.

Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting a webinar with our Director of Product, Esther Bergmark, and our CTO, Christophe Willemsen. This webinar introduced our new release Hume 2.11, so we covered the most exciting features of the release, including no-code graph navigation, custom visibility of Actions in Perspectives, and Perspective API. The 2.11 version comes with more updates and advancements such as Configuration as Code and Polygons in Geospatial Analysis - about which you can read in our release blog.
We are proud to announce the 2.11 release of Hume. Advanced Expand is introduced to Hume with this release, which lets users create complex queries to navigate the graph without using Cypher. Additionally, the visibility of Actions can now be defined per Perspectives, enabling a tailored exploration experience; a GraphQL API exposes data from Perspectives so that other apps can leverage the power of Hume. And finally, Configuration-as-Code allows administrators to manage Hume configuration files in a repository.
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.
Just a couple of days ago, we hosted a Fraud Detection webinar. We chose to focus on credit card fraud to illustrate how Hume can help detect fraud faster. Our Director of Product, Esther Bergmark walked you through an example of a credit card company investigator looking into suspicious, fraudulent developments. Let me share what we covered at the webinar.
We are proud to announce the 2.10 release of Hume. With this release, Comments are introduced to Hume, which lets you add text, images, and links as comments to nodes and relationships. Additionally, Snapshots can now be shared, and Temporary Visualisations can be created and accessed by other users via a URL.
Welcome to the first blog in the business series of GraphAware blog! This series is designed for us non-techies out there. Personally, I was shocked when I found out how big and common knowledge graphs are and how often graph databases are used in today's world - and I had first heard of them just a couple of months ago. So, for people like me, for marketers and non-tech people in business, I'll try to open the door to the world of graphs, and their potential and take you through it step-by-step. It seems only appropriate that we start with...
This blog post is the first part in a series on Effective Graph Visualisations, showcasing features emerging from years of experience in the field.
Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have become one of the most powerful tools for modeling the relations between entities in various fields, from biotech to e-commerce, from intelligence and law enforcement to fintech. Starting from the first version proposed by Google in 2012, the capabilities of modern KGs have been employed across diverse applications, including search engines, chatbots, and recommendation systems.
Organisations do not suffer from a lack of data or qualified people who analyse it and draw conclusions but rather from the size of relevant data sets and the limited amount of time skilled people can spend on exploration and analysis. In this blog post we show how Hume Alerts can be used to solve this issue.
Not so long ago, our very own Luanne gave an amazing talk titled Maltaware: Discovering what to drink with Neo4j on Nodes2020. Luanne demonstrated the value of graphs, and why they are the perfect fit for recommendation engines with an example of a whisky recommendation engine. Let me quickly walk you through a summary of why graphs and recommendation engines go together so well.
GraphAware is now going through an extremely exciting phase. In 2020, we launched our own amazing product Hume, the only graph-powered insights engine in the world, which helps companies shed light on their complex data and make smart decisions. Since then, we have been rapidly growing in all aspects. Our ambitious plans will need plenty of talented people, who want to have a direct impact on a company’s success. Right now, we are already advertising for multiple vacancies, and the number will only grow in the coming months (check out our career page if you are already intrigued).
Before I started at GraphAware I spent many years in research, both academia and industry, focusing my attention on machine learning and image processing.
GraphAware is proud to announce the 2.9 release of Hume. With this release, Alerts are available in Hume, a feature that greatly simplifies the daily work of analysts, data scientists, investigators, and data-savvy business users. And there is more:
When we started our journey with Neo4j over ten years ago, we were just a bunch of passionate techies trying to convince the world about the power of graphs. We were blogging, running meetups, writing open-source code, speaking at conferences, trying to preach graphs to a like-minded crowd.
Say you have a graph-based project in mind. Be it research in life sciences, a fraud detection machine, or possibly a recommendation app. Anything that relies heavily on relationships between data points is a good case for a graph.
It has been over 8 years since I’ve written the first lines of code for the GraphAware Neo4j Framework as part of my MSc. thesis. That’s when the name GraphAware, as well as the (then) one-man show Neo4j consulting company was born. It is therefore my bittersweet duty to take you on a small trip down the memory laneand announce that we have decided to discontinue the development and support of the Framework and all of its modules.
GraphAware is proud to announce the 2.8 release of Hume, our graph-powered insights engine. The release adds further unique capabilities to Hume’s knowledge graph visualisation and graph data analysis capabilities. Analysts, data scientists, investigators, and data-savvy business users will profit from these benefits:
CDC (Change Data Capture) is a well defined software design pattern for a system that monitors and captures data changes so that other software can respond to those events.
GraphAware is proud to announce the 2.7 release of Hume, our graph-powered insights engine. The release significantly enhances Hume’s knowledge graph visualisation and graph data analysis capabilities. Analysts, data scientists, investigators, and data-savvy business users immediately get the following main benefits:
Enterprise Integration has existed since many, many years. Although it might seem like an old set of patterns, the reality is that more and more data silos, protocols and systems have been created in recent times which increase the need for the capabilities of an Enterprise Integration platform.
In our last Metropolitan Art Collections post we ingested and processed part of a dataset containing more than 470,000 artworks from The Metropolitan Museum of Art and created a knowledge graph using Hume, GraphAware’s insights engine.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently published a dataset of more than 470,000 works of art under the CC-zero License. Representing such a collection as a knowledge graph allows us to explore it in a unique way - seeing the artworks, their authors, donors, mediums, tags, or art movements deeply connected, being able to traverse the links between them and discover unexpected relations.
Graphs are a perfect fit for IT Operations. Right from dependency management to impact analysis and capacity to outage planning, the interconnectedness of the components that make up networks and services, modelled naturally as a graph enable various teams such as support, help desk and devops to navigate potentially complex relationships.
GraphAware is proud to announce the release of Hume 2.6. This new release brings some major updates and exciting new features to our customers. In particular:
If you have read our post Hume in Space: Monitoring Satellite Technology Markets with a ML-powered Knowledge Graph, you surely wonder: is there a way to extract relations among named entities without heavy investment? Investment in terms of time to label training dataset and to develop, train and deploy a machine learning model?
Everyone has a passion for something. Be it music, politics, sports, coffee or … pancakes. Such passion makes you strive for new information, for understanding of the current trends. Take pancakes: you might watch for new recipes on your favourite website, you might look at cooking shows or youtube videos to get more inspiration about how to serve them … but overall, you can probably handle this pretty well. It’s not like there is much room for revolutionising the pancake recipe.
GraphAware Hume helps governments in keeping their countries safe. In this 15-minute video, we demonstrate the use of Hume for contact tracing and smart quarantine in the context of the current coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, we will see how Hume can identify people at risk using actual and potential contact tracing, suggest who should be informed or quarantined, visually explain why someone is at risk, find quarantine offenders, and much more.
