Talk #1 - Dr. Mingxi Wu, Tigergraph
Title: Real-time Deep Link Pattern Analytics with GSQL: Expressive Yet Easy-To-Use Graph Query Language
Brief: Graph query language is the key to unleashing the value of interconnected data. The talk discusses the prerequisites of a graph query language for successful implementations of real-world graph use cases. It also surveyed the pros and cons of three graph query languages - Cypher, Gremlin, and SPARQL. Finally, The talk will present GSQL, which shows TigerGraph's vision of a standard graph query language. We will focus on real-time deep link pattern analytics and accumulator, the two must-have ingredients of an expressive yet easy-to-use graph language. The talk will share examples with use cases such as next-generation fraud detection, anti-money laundering, and recommendation engine.

Talk #2 - Pete Hawtree and Radu Petre of Lab49
Title: Azure Cosmos DB in capital markets
Brief: Many financial calculations require management of the calculation dependencies and Azure Cosmos DB presents a managed cloud solution to achieve it. Combining Azure Cosmos DB graph capabilities with Azure Functions allowed us to build an enrichment and calculation engine with a minimal amount of code. During this talk, we will run a quick demo and discuss the lessons learned.
Bio: Pete Hawtree and Radu Petre work for Lab49 - strategy, design and technology consulting firm. With experience in building risk aggregation and regulatory reporting solutions for tier 1 financial institutions, they are now looking into assisting financial services firms with the implementation of the cloud-native systems.
