Two Altamira employees working on the development of Lumify recently gave presentations at a joint event co-hosted by the DC Natural Language Processing and Graph Database Baltimore-Washington meetup groups. These presentations featured Lumify's use of graph database technology to enable exploration and manipulation of NLP-enriched datasets.

Joe Ferner, Senior Software Engineer at Altamira, described the creation of SecureGraph and how it supports authorizations, visibility strings, multivalued properties, and property metadata as the graph database used in Lumify.

The video of Joe's talk was posted on YouTube:


Joe's slides and code samples are available on GitHub.

The crowd of about 100 NLP enthusiasts & graph database aficionados asked a ton of great questions and the technical discussions continued long after the presentations concluded. Many thanks to Neo4j for sponsoring the pizza & beer, and to Segue Technologies for providing the meeting space.
