Why AI Industry needs Revision Control Graph Database

Cheuk Ting Ho (~Cheukting)


Data is the driving force for ML&AI. As technology advances, we are dealing with bigger and more complicated data. Through use cases, Cheuk will show you how a graph database with revision control would revolutionize the AI industry by providing a logical way of storing data and providing data ops like branch, merge and rollback.

Cheuk will show you why graph database with revision control would revolutionize the AI industry by providing a logical way of storing data and powerful data ops. This talk mainly consists of 3 parts,

In the first part, Cheuk will explain what is a knowledge graph and the benefit of it over SQL databases. By storing data in a graph format, information can be implied in the data itself and knowledge of the information can be extracted by logical queries. Machine learning (ML) and natural language programming (NLP) can be benefit from representing data in a knowledge graph.

Then, Cheuk will demonstrate how a revision control database that is fully capable of git like operations - branch, merge, fork, clone and rollback, can benefit data ops and encourage data openness. Cheuk will demonstrate use-cases where such databases can be applied to provide a data ops pipeline for machine learning projects. Cheuk will also make some comparison of this “new method” with the “traditional way” of completing the same task.

In the last part, Cheuk will discuss why there are limited choices in graph databases that have revision control capabilities among the open-source software.

This talk is for those who are interested in Data Science and would like to look for a new solution for storing their data and have better data ops.


This talk will assume no prior knowledge from the audience.
