About the technology
Identifying relationships is the foundation of machine learning. By recognizing and analyzing the connections in your data, graph-centric algorithms like K-nearest neighbor or PageRank radically improve the effectiveness of ML applications. Graph-based machine learning techniques offer a powerful new perspective for machine learning in social networking, fraud detection, natural language processing, and recommendation systems.
About the book
Graph-Powered Machine Learning teaches you how to exploit the natural relationships in structured and unstructured datasets using graph-oriented machine learning algorithms and tools. In this authoritative book, you’ll master the architectures and design practices of graphs, and avoid common pitfalls. Author Alessandro Negro explores examples from real-world applications that connect GraphML concepts to real world tasks.
