Neo4j and the Panama Papers

In May 2016, the ICIJ stunned the world by making available a download of "The Panama Papers".

This remarkable dataset represents the largest leak of offshore financial networks ever, at least 10 times bigger than the previous largest leak. Luckily for those of us keen to analyse this data, they made the data available as a ready-to-run instance of the Neo4j graph database, with all data pre-loaded. In this presentation we'll show you how to download and run this database, and how to perform various queries using the Cypher query language to gain insights into the structure of the offshore financial networks used by people and corporations around the world.

And don't worry, you won't need to know Neo4j or Cypher, or even what the Panama Papers are. We'll introduce everything before pulling out the Cypher queries!
