In many graph applications we find the link between two nodes is actually a complex object in itself. Property Graph Databases (i.e. Neo4j) try to solve this by putting attribute/values on the edges between nodes but unfortunately this is far too limited as the values cannot be nodes themselves.
Semantic Graph Databases solve this by creating 'Relationship Objects' between nodes. In our presentation we will describe four use cases where the Property Graphҳ shortcomings were solved by using Relationship Objects. An online banking application, a fraud detection application for a European tax office, a machine learning application in healthcare and the CrunchBase investment database.
Working with these 'Relationship Objects' is very efficient because we employed a new 'Super Graph' pattern that summarizes connections between nodes in such a way that even in graphs with large branching factors we still can perform super fast search.
Another advantage of the relationship objects is that it makes it far more straightforward to interactively explore large graph space in an aesthetically pleasing way in Gruff, Franz's advanced graph visualization tool.

October 7, 2015 Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and leading supplier of Common Lisp (CL) development tools and Semantic Graph Database technology, today announced Allegro CL 10, which includes key performance enhancements now available within the most effective system for developing and deploying applications to solve the problems in the field of Artificial Intelligence. "Demand for faster, more intelligent and scalable applications is increasing with the Big Data onslaught that is impacting applications in traditional AI industries like National Defense, but also in Life Sciences, Manufacturing and Financial Analytics," said Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz Inc.

When a symbol must be package qualified when printed, the system must decide whether to use the package name or one of its nicknames. In earlier releases, Allegro CL allowed users to choose between the name and the principal (first in the list) nickname, but that method turned out to have problems. Starting in release 10.0, users may choose exactly which among the name and all the nicknames should be used, with the choice being made per package rather than globally.

Alpha blending is the process of combining a translucent foreground color with a background color, thereby producing a new blended color. Common Graphics on Windows in Allegro CL 10.0 supports alpha blending.

Montefiore Medical Center in collaboration with Franz, Intel, Cloudera and Cisco created a scalable and extensible Learning Healthcare System platform for accountable care and precision medicine initiatives. We call the underlying Hadoop based big data platform a "Semantic Data Lake" (SDL).
The SDL integrates complex information and analytic requirements including:
The SDL links and fuses domain specific models (ontologies), biomedical terminologies and taxonomy systems, and other contextual metadata with ERP data, Electronic Medical Records, and medical device data in massive volumes. The SDL provides a uniform, semantically integrated, self-descriptive information repository based on graph representations of multi-source, heterogeneous data (including free text clinical narratives). We expect to grow this platform to 4 trillion edges at the end of 2015.
Montefiore uses this platform for scalable knowledge-based analytics for classification, pattern recognition, predictive modeling, and simulations. We will demonstrate how we can create smart applications for decision support, fraud detection, risk management, personalized care management, signal detection and notifications.
