Graph Data Zagreb meetup season finale ends with AstraZeneca

What a season, almost excited as Stranger Things or Game of Thrones! Before we dive into what happened, we would like to thank everyone for participating! When we started the first Graph Data Zagreb meetup, we didn’t imagine that we would gather over 240 graph enthusiasts.

In case you missed it (and you shouldn’t), four Graph Data Zagreb meetups happened - from a Graph Tech Landscape presentation, Github Repository Vulnerabilities Detection to Graph Analytics on a Game of Thrones dataset and Transforming Bitcoin Blockchain into a Graph

Graph Data Zagreb season finale happened on July 7, 2022, with a special guest Michaël Ughetto, a graph data scientist from AstraZeneca, who presented: Accelerating Drug Discovery With a Biomedical Knowledge Graph.

Knowledge Graphs, BIKG, what is the fuss about that?

Knowledge graphs often store interlinked descriptions of entities – objects, events, situations or abstract concepts – while also encoding the semantics underlying the used terminology. Knowledge graphs serve as training data for machine learning models and graph machine learning models in particular.

BIKG (Biological Insights Knowledge Graph) is an internal AstraZeneca knowledge graph that supports analytics and machine learning tasks to help drug development. BIKG combines relevant data for drug development from the public and internal data sources to provide insights for a range of tasks: from identifying new targets to repurposing existing drugs.

In case you missed the presentation, Memgraph is organising a Webinar that you can join and get up to speed. See the details here.

After the talk, serious discussions ensued with tasty burgers and beer.
