BOSTON, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – GraphAware, a leading Neo4j ISV and consulting practice, today announced the official launch of its Italian Research and Development entity Graph Aware S.r.l., headquartered in Lecce, Italy. This strategic investment by GraphAware represents a significant expansion as an ISV, with a fast growing development team of thought-leaders in GraphDBs with Neo4j, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Led by Chief Scientist Alessandro Negro and CTO Christophe Willemsen, the Lecce R&D center is the main lab and development center for GraphAware’s flagship software platform Hume- with a dedicated local and remote development team growing past 10 in the first half of 2019. The Hume platform is an NLP-focused graph-powered Insights Engine that leverages a Collaborative Knowledge Graph at its core, creating a digital twin of your business, surfacing insights simply unattainable in the past without graph and Hume.
