Graph Processing

Archived; click post to view. Excerpt: Davy really nicely introduced the problem of looking at a snapshot of a data base. This problem obviously exists for any data base technology. You have a lot of timestamped records but running a query as if you fired it a couple of month ago is always a difficult [...]

Archived; click post to view. Excerpt: I am just dreaming this does not exist and needs to be refined in a later stage. Fast traversals: Jumping from one vertex of the graph to another should be possible in O(1) Online processing: “Standard queries” (<–whatever this means) should compute within miliseconds. As an example: Local recommendations [...]

Archived; click post to view. Excerpt: Claudio Martella introduces Apache Giraph which according to him is a loose implementation of Google Pregel which was introduced  on SIGMOD in 2010. He points out that Map Reduce cannot be used to do graph processing. He then gave an example on how MapReduce can be used to to do page rank calculation. He points [...]
