Events for 20 September 2018

Professor Richard Wilson: Machine Learning with Graphs and Networks

1:00pm, E245

In this talk I briefly review the last twenty years of research into graphs at York. I then focus particularly on some techniques which allow us to apply machine learning methods to big graph datasets. Using some important applications as a background, graph kernel methods are discussed, including some more recent methods where efficiency is key. These methods are based on count common sub-structures such as walks, paths and cycles. I also discuss a hybrid kernel which includes a notion of an optimal matching. In the second half of the talk, I focus on graph embedding methods, which allow a graph dataset to embedded into a pattern space, after which traditional learning methods can be used.
