This week YarcData announced the six finalists for the company’s Graph Analytics Challenge. The top six entries for the contest, which features $100,000 in prizes including a $70,000 grand prize for the first place winner, were determined to have entered the best submissions for un-partitionable, Big Data graph problems.
The quality and diversity of the many entries we received as part of the Graph Analytics Challenge is very exciting to us,” said Arvind Parthasarathi, president of YarcData. “This contest is about increasing awareness and interest in graph analytics, and it is encouraging to see that the Big Data community is embracing new ways to apply graph analytics towards solving complex problems with incredibly large data sets.”
The contest is intended to promote the use and development of RDF and SPARQL (both standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium) as the industry standard for graph analytics. Winners will be announced in January. Read the Full Story.
