About the course

Graph-based data is becoming increasingly ubiquitous. For example, social media networks and professional networks like LinkedIn all feature graph-based data. This course will teach how to gain business insights by analysing graph-based data and show how to discover and leverage hidden relationships between the entities in the graph. This has widespread applications across a broad range of domains including business, engineering, manufacturing, healthcare. In addition, graph-based databases and algorithms offer a very scalable platform for undertaking big data analytics. Course topics include graph mining, link analysis, network complexity measurement, key player identification, network clustering, graph databases. Applications include mining social networks, professional networks, communications networks, document networks and web usage patterns. For example:

  • Marketing Analytics – Graphs can be used to figure out the most influential people in a Social Network, advertisers and marketers can then route their message through these people.
  • Banking Transactions – Graphs can be used to find unusual patterns that may indicate fraud, e.g. by analysing the flow of money across interconnected Banking networks.
  • Supply Chain & Transportation – Graphs help in identifying optimum routes for delivery trucks and in identifying locations for warehouses and delivery centres
  • Human Resource Management – Graphs can be used to match people to jobs, to identify key employees, to identify staff attrition causes and relationships etc.

This course is part of the Data Science series and Graduate Certificate in Big Data Engineering & Web Analytics series offered by NUS-ISS.
