ArangoML Blog Series: Intro to NetworkX Adapter
This post is the fifth in a series of posts introducing ArangoML features and tools. It introduces the NetworkX adapter, which makes it easy to analyze your graphs stored in ArangoDB with NetworkX.
In this post, we:
- Briefly introduce NetworkX
- Explore the IMDB user rating dataset
- Showcase the ArangoDB integration of NetworkX
- Explore the centrality measures of the data using NetworkX
- Store the experiment with arangopipe
Graph & Beyond Lunch Break #11: Fuzzy Search
When dealing with real-world text retrieval, we often not only care about exact matches to our search phrase but need to consider for example typos or alternative spellings.
“Fuzzy search” is an umbrella term referring to a set of algorithms for such approximate matching. Usually, such algorithms evaluate some similarity measure showing how close a search term is to the items in a dictionary. Then, a search engine can make a decision on which results have to be shown first.
In this Lunch Break, we will take a look at different similarity measures and show how fuzzy search works in ArangoDB.
