Today, there are seemingly endless streams of data, both inside and outside of organizations, that when linked in emerging graph applications reveal amazing new insights in virtually ever sector.

Blazegraph, creator of the industry’s first GPU-accelerated high-performance database for large graphs, today announced that its CEO Brad Bebee is a featured speaker during Database Camp at the United Nations in New York City, July 10. Bebee will share how graphics processing units (GPUs) play an important role in critical graph and predictive analytics used as researchers collaborate globally to find cures for cancer.

Database Camp is one of several Open Camps being held in mid-July at the United Nations. Among the largest open source conferences in the world, Open Camps host more than 6,000 developers at 25 separate events in collaboration with the United Nations Open Source Innovation Initiatives (Unite Open Source) and multiple open source communities.

“Today, there are seemingly endless streams of data, both inside and outside of organizations, that when linked in emerging graph applications reveal amazing new insights in virtually ever sector,” said Bebee. “GPUs are vital to this process, enabling us to process data 100s of times faster than traditional graph databases to model complex dependencies and support new types of analytics. GPUs can have a major impact in medical research, allowing researchers to process and analyze vast quantities of data at scale that provide insights into new, innovative disease cures.”

During his presentation “Global Knowledge Collaboration to Cure Cancer: How GPUs Impact Graph & Predictive Analytics,” Bebee will explain how Blazegraph is giving researchers around the world access to National Institutes of Health’s The Cancer Genomic Atlas (TCGA), as they explore new ways to cure cancers. He also will share other uses of Blazegraph in cultural heritage and large-scale, complex analytics, including the British Museum’s ResearchSpace project and Wikidata’s public knowledge graphs. In addition, he will discuss how GPUs are powering the next generation of graph databases to provide researchers the ability to manage larger and more complex data sets, and discover new insights faster than ever before.

Other featured speakers at Database Camp include: Michael “Monty” Widenius, creator of MySQL and MariaDB; Lukas Sliwka, CTO of Grindr; Minerva Tantoco, CTO for the City of New York; Barry Morris, co-founder and executive chairman of NuoDB; Bob Wiederhold, president and CEO of Couchbase; Richard Kreuter, vice president, Global Services at MongoDB; Javier de la Torre, CEO and founder, CartoDB; Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense; and Ed Boyajian, president and CEO, EnterpriseDB.

Database Camp is free to attend, but registration is required. Visit for more details.
