With the torrent of data available to us on the Internet, it's been increasingly difficult to separate the signal from the noise. We set out on a journey with a simple directive: Figure out a way to discover emerging technology trends. Through a series of experiments, trials, and pivots, we found our answer in the power of graph databases. We essentially built our "Emerging Tech Radar" on emerging technologies with graph databases being central to our discovery platform. Using a mix of NoSQL databases and open source libraries we built a scalable information digestion platform which touches upon multiple topics such as NLP, named entity extraction, data cleansing, cypher queries, multiple visualizations, and polymorphic persistence.
