Approximate Querying on Property Graphs

Property graphs are becoming widespread when modeling data with complex structural characteristics and enhancing edges and nodes with a list of properties. We worked on the approximate evaluation of counting queries involving recursive paths on property graphs. As such queries are already difficult to evaluate over pure RDF graphs, they require an ad-hoc graph summary for their approximate evaluation on property graphs. We prove the intractability of the optimal graph summarization problem, under our algorithm's conditions. We design and implement a novel property graph summary suitable for the above queries, along with an approximate query evaluation module. Finally, we show the compactness of the obtained summaries as well as the accuracy of answering counting recursive queries on them [8].
