报告主题：AN OVERVIEW OF GRAPH ANALYTICS PLATFORMS
Graph data are of growing importance in many applications, including the semantic web (i.e., RDF), social network analysis, bioinformatics, software engineering, e-commerce, finance and trading, fraud detection, and recommendation systems, because they model complicated structures and relationships well. The size and complexity of these graphs raise significant data management and data analysis challenges. This has led to a number of different algorithms and approaches to graph processing as well as systems that are based on these algorithms. In this presentation, I will focus on the platforms that have been developed to facilitate graph analytics. I will start with a classification of various approaches and systems, and then discuss the systems that have been developed to facilitate graph analytics.
