How To Look8/15 – 9/15

I was tasked with finding the shortest distance between 2 people on Google’s Knowledge Graph. I decided to teach myself Python. First I had to write code to scrape Google’s database. Then, once I’d accumulated about 250,000 entries, I wrote code to seek the shortest path(s) between 2 nodes of the graph. Fascinating stuff.
