Abstract: Feature engineering is one of the most important parts of machine learning task. As a most universal format of data existence, such as social network, information network etc, information networks have been widely studied within a broad scope of machine learning. Network Representation Learning (NRL) aims to project network nodes (or other entities) into a low-dimensional vector space while preserving general proximity between nodes, and has become a hot topic in data mining and machine learning. In this talk, I will first overview the basic concepts of NRL, and give an introduction about our recent advancements in such field, such as tag embedding, domain adaptive network embedding, and landmark based network embedding etc.
