Franz Unveils AllegroGraph 8.1

Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and supplier of Graph Database technology for Entity-Event Knowledge Graph Solutions, is releasing AllegroGraph 8.1, a Neuro-Symbolic AI Platform that incorporates ChatStream, a natural language query interface for querying a neuro-symbolic application. 

AllegroGraph with ChatStream redefines how knowledge graphs are queried and expands the boundaries of what AI can achieve within the most secure graph database on the market, according to Franz.

"AllegroGraph was the first to deliver a comprehensive Neuro-Symbolic AI platform and the addition of ChatStream makes it even easier to ask questions of your connected enterprise data," said Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO, Franz Inc. "Organizations across a range of industries are realizing the critical role that Knowledge Graphs play in creating the next generation of AI driven applications.  AllegroGraph provides enterprise users with the trust, explainability, and semantics required to future-proof AI systems."

As the first Neuro-Symbolic AI Platform, AllegroGraph combines machine learning (statistical AI) with knowledge and reasoning (symbolic AI) capabilities.

This combination enables AllegroGraph to solve complex problems that require reasoning and learn efficiently with less data, thereby expanding applicability across a broad array of tasks, according to the company.

The blending of machine learning and reasoning in AllegroGraph also produces decisions that are understandable to humans and explainable, an important step in the progression of AI.

The advancements in AllegroGraph encompass the following transformative capabilities and enhancements.

  • Natural language queries with ChatStreams
  • Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) for LLMs
  • Enterprise document deep-insight
  • AI Symbolic rule generation
  • Knowledge Graph-as-a-Service
  • Enhanced scalability and performance
  • New web interface advanced knowledge graph visualization
