Demo @ VLDB 2020

Our demo entitled “SPHINX: A System for Metapath-based Entity Exploration in Heterogeneous Information Networks” will be presented at VLDB 2020 on September 2nd, 18:15 UTC and September 3rd, 6:15 UTC.

SPHINX allows users to define different views over a HIN based on both automatically selected and user-defined metapaths. Then, entity ranking and similarity search can be performed over these views to find and explore entities of interest, taking also into account any spatial or temporal properties of entities. A Web-based user interface is provided to facilitate users in performing the various functionalities supported by the system, including metapath-based view definition, index construction, search parameters specification and visual comparison of the results.
