Waveonics’ Blake Nelson At GraphConnect San Francisco

Blake Nelson
On October 13, 2016 Blake Nelson, founder of Waveonics, LLC and Adjunct Professor Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), presented at Neo4j’s GraphConnect convention in San Francisco. Neo4j is used by thousands of organizations ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies in order to build applications that connect data in new and innovative ways. Mr. Nelson has been assessing the functionality and performance of Neo4j for Agero, Inc., a leader in the roadside service industry.

Recent advances in mobile device sensors, GPS location services, communication technology, crowdsourced data acquisition, affordable cloud storage, machine learning, and data analytics, has opened the door to an exciting world of new services. Capitalizing on these opportunities requires that providers continually organize, store, manage, access, and update terabytes of information efficiently. They need databases that are powerful enough to model the complexities of the business environment and easy to modify as the environment evolves – without sacrificing the performance demanded by data analytics. Waveonics is working with Agero Mobile to explore and validate the use of graphical databases (Neo4j) to drive Agero’s mission of delivering a “holistic approach [which] helps anticipate and meet customers’ needs in a way that forms lasting connections with them.” Agero is building on Neo4j to further its leadership position in the automotive, insurance, finance and roadside service industries.

Video of Blake Nelson’s presentation will become available soon, at which point we will share it with you, so keep checking back!


Listen to Our Interview With Captain Lou!

Blake Nelson Captain Lou Interview

Waveonics’ first day at the New England Boat Show in Boston, MA was on Saturday, February 14th, 2015. This was our first appearance at a convention of this size. It was an eventful day for us, but a lot of fun. Members of our team were able to spread the news about Wayves to the public in a few ways. We started by speaking with potential users personally, and then participated in a radio interview. We were both honored and pleasantly surprised when we were approached by Captain Lou from the radio station WATD 95.9 FM. He is the host of a show called Nautical Talk, and he wanted to help us share our vision with his listeners.

Captain Lou covers a wide range of boating-related topics on his show. The majority of his listeners are boaters. He thought that Wayves would be a great asset to many them and asked if we would be willing to participate in an interview tho help spread the word. He asked our founder, Blake Nelson, about how our application Wayves works and how it can improve the boating experience.

You can catch the live broadcasts of Nautical Talk every Sunday on WATD 95.9 FM from 11:00AM until noon (EST).
