Graphs are useful tools to model real-world data that are best represented by a set of objects and the relationships between the objects, e.g., WWW, social networks, and biological networks among others. This talk mainly focuses on mining and learning methods for graphs with three specific topics: clustering, hypergraphs, and representation learning. The talk begins with introducing basic concepts of graph clustering and efficient solutions to various graph clustering problems from the traditional graph partitioning problems to overlapping community detection problems. The graph clustering formulations can be seamlessly extended to hypergraphs which represent complex relationships among entities by allowing a hyperedge to include two or more entities. In many practical applications, entities have various features or attributes, and sometimes entity labels are partially available. To incorporate this information, a multi-view semi-supervised clustering method is introduced. Finally, a structure-based pre-training method of knowledge graph embedding is explained where a metagraph is learned based on the structural similarity between entities in a knowledge graph.
