Franz Inc. was an early innovator in artificial intelligence (AI) and a leading supplier of semantic graph database technology for Knowledge Graphs. So it is no surprise that they recently announced Gruff v7.0, Graph Visualization software for exploring and discovering connections within data. Dataconomy brought us this interesting information in their article, “Graph Visualization with a Time Machine.”

In computing, a graph database uses graph structures for semantic queries with nodes, edges and properties to represent and store data. The relationships allow data in the store to be linked together directly, and in many cases retrieved with one operation. The underlying storage mechanism of graph databases can vary. Some depend on a relational engine and store the graph data in a table.

Gruff provides novice users and graph experts the ability to visually build queries and explore connections as they develop over time. The new time slider feature speeds discovery and enhances the ability to uncover hidden relationships within time-based data.
