Machine Learning on Graphs

Joydeep Bhattacharjee (~infinite-Joy)




Everything is a graph. Graphs power a lot of the applications that we love and use daily. On the other hand, machine learning is about efficiently identifying patterns and relationships in data. Many tasks such as finding associations among terms so that accurate search recommendations or locating individuals within a social network who have similar interests, are naturally expressed as graphs.

The primary challenge in this domain is finding a way to represent, or encode graph structure. The primary challenge in this domain is finding a way to represent, or encode graph structure so that it can be easily exploited by machine learning models.

The presenter would create an end to end solution starting from scraping data from the internet and forming a graph using Neo4J, a popular graph database. A collective edge prediction model would be created that can easily be converted to real world systems such as building a recommendation system. Finally we will deploy the model on an ec2 instance that will make predictions over an api.
