Graph Data Science with Neo4j (Packt)
Monday, 06 March 2023

This practical guide to Neo4j and the GDS library offers step-by-step explanations of essential concepts and practical instructions for implementing data science techniques on graph data using Neo4j version 5 and its associated libraries. Estelle Scifo starts by showing how to query Neo4j with Cypher and how to characterize graph datasets before moving on to the new and advanced capabilities of the GDS library that enable you to make predictions and write data science pipelines.


Scifo shows how to use the newly released GDSL Python driver to integrate graph algorithms into ML pipelines and by the end of the book show how to take advantage of the relationships in datasets to improve models and make other types of elaborate predictions.
