Chemical and Graph Classification

Support Vector Machine

  • Chemicals are structured as graphs.

    • Vertices and edges correspond to atoms and bonds.

    • Labeled, undirected.

  • Graph classification is critical for drug development and screening.

    • Sifting through large databases of compounds requires efficiency.

    • Costs of chemical manufacture and assay experiments necessitate accuracy.

  • Traditional chemical classifiers use vector representations of chemicals, neglecting the rich structure of graph models.

  • SVM is a fast, accurate classifier designed for vector data.

  • Crucially, SVM internally represents data points as inner products between pair of input vectors.

    • SVM can then linearly classify non-linear data distributions by applying the kernel trick, and replacing the inner product <x,y> with some similarity measurement function, K(x,y)‏

    • The key is that this kernel function K can be defined on non-vector data, allowing direct operation on structured data such as graphs.

Graph Kernel Functions

Our Work

  • Problem of chemical graph classification changes:

    • fromfinding vector representations of graphs, to defining high-quality kernel functions to compare graphs.

  • Previous kernel functions -

    • Decompose graphs into substructures such as paths, cycles, and trees.

    • Optimally assign vertices based on neighborhood similarity.

    • Respective limitations are:

      • Dependency on particular decompositions; pattern enumeration time.

      • Inefficient recursive comparison and a flaw rendering them not true kernel functions.

  • We can improve graph kernels with several ideas:

    • Embed frequent patterns by using their occurrences as features in the graph. [1]

    • Use wavelet functions to compress neighborhood information.[2]

    • Avoid finding an optimal assignment by using setmatching and summing the kernels between all vertex pairs.
