- Join our growing avocado grove (aka we are hiring!)
- Leave us a review on G2
Graph & Beyond Lunch Break #2.6: Graph Embeddings with AQL
The terms graph embeddings and graph representation learning can be seen as synonyms to each other, where the key idea is to learn a mapping function that embeds nodes, or entire (sub)graphs (from non-euclidean), as points in low-dimensional vector space (to embedding space).
In this session, Sachin will put more light on this rapidly-growing area and its industrial and research applications. He will also demonstrate how we can leverage graph embeddings with ArangoDB’s AQL query language.

From the Blog: Integrate ArangoDB with PyTorch Geometric to Build Recommendation Systems
In this blog post, we build a complete movie recommendation application using ArangoDB and PyTorch Geometric. We tackle the challenge of building a movie recommendation application by transforming it into the task of link prediction. Our goal is to predict missing links between a user and the movies they have not watched yet.
Community Spotlight: ArangoDB Radio
Have you checked out our podcast, ArangoDB Radio, yet?
Our most recent episodes feature guests such as Dr. Rachael Tatman, a Staff Developer Advocate at Rasa HQ, as well as Ashleigh Faith, the director of knowledge graph at EBSCO and founder of IsaDataThing, a youtube channel dedicated to data science content. We discuss everything from knowledge graphs, digital twins, the democratization of data science, what it means for machine learning models to be ‘fair’, the current state of NLP, and the challenge of detecting sarcasm with sentiment analysis.

From the Avocado Grove: We’re Hiring!
Team Avocado is continuing to grow! We have 20 open positions (almost all fully-remote) on our website across Customer Service, Engineering, Marketing, Product Management, and Sales.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Anastasia Soboleva, Documentation Team Lead.
Anastasia joined ArangoDB towards the end of 2021, bringing 13 years of technical writing experience to the Documentation Team. She earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and linguistics, and got into technical writing due to the unique blend – and challenge – of combining the written word with technology. Since joining ArangoDB she has led several initiatives for the Documentation Team, including automating documentation releases and documentation restructuring.
She joined ArangoDB due the huge potential she sees for graph-powered analytics and machine learning, and views the job of the Documentation Team to bridge the gap between the product and its users. She is currently hiring a software engineer and technical writer to help continue her mission to improve the customer experience with great content and a slick, fast and powerful infrastructure (or in the words of Daft Punk, “Better, Faster, Stronger.”).
Whether it’s the Documentation Team or another department, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in joining Team Avocado! You can view all our open positions here.
ArangoDB recognized as Leader on G2
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be recognized by our users as a Graph Database Leader on G2 Crowd.
Are you happy with how things are going with ArangoDB so far, and have a few minutes to spare? Then take a break from coding and write a review about your experience on G2.
We hope you enjoyed our latest news!
Until next month,
The ArangoDB Team
