Connection Sub-graphs In Entity Relationship Graphs

Abstract

Techniques are described herein for a connection sub-graph generator that identifies important relationships between entities in entity relationship graphs. The generator first identifies two entities in an entity relationship graphs. A plurality of candidate path relationships between the two entities may be determined. For each such candidate path relationship, the generator determines a path type based on types of edge relationships that make up the candidate path relationship and generates a score value for the candidate path. This score value is based in part on the path type of the candidate path relationship. One or more candidate path relationships that have score values that indicate a high likelihood of interest to a user is selected to be included in a connection sub-graph.
