The ghosts of graph databases: past, present, and yet to come
I will provide a broad overview of graph databases, from the earlydays of database research, to their adolescence and experimentationwith RDF, and finally to the current bloom of graph and multi-modelDBs available today. I will also try to defuse the hype around graphdatabases, and try to articulate scenarios where using such a databasecould be useful. Time permitting, I will provide a high-level overview of our recentwork on Aspen, a principled graph-streaming system that extends Ligrawith primitives for updating a graph.
