Le Nhat Minh ( A0074403N)

Supervisor: Dongyuan Lu

- Link prediction
- Introduce future connections within the network scope

- Co-authorship network
- A network of collaborations among researchers, scientists, academic writers

- Potential applications
- Recommend experts or group of researchers for individual researcher.

- Problem Background
- Related Work
- Workflow
- Conclusion
- Result Analysis
- Research plan

- What connect researchers together ?
- Given an instance of co-authorship network:
- A researcher connect to another if they collaborated on at least one paper.

- How to predict the link?
- Based on criteria:
- Co-authorship network topology
- Researcher’s personal information
- Researcher’s papers

- Boost up link predictions performance
- Recommend link should be really relevant to the interest of the authors or at least possible for researcher to collaborate.

- Link prediction problems in Social network
- Liben‐Nowell, D., & Kleinberg, J., 2007
- Bliss, C. A., Frank, M. R., Danforth, C. M., & Dodds, P. S., 2013

- In social network, interactions among users are very dynamic with:
- Creation of new link within a few days
- Deletion or replacement of the existent links

- Different features present by the two networks
- Characteristics of individual researcher : citations, affiliations , institutions, ...
- Characteristics of person : marriage status, ages, working places, …

- Three mainstream approaches for link prediction:
- Similarity based estimation
- Liben‐Nowell, D., & Kleinberg, J., 2007

- Maximum likelihood estimation
- Murata, T., & Moriyasu, S., 2008
- Guimerà, R., & Sales-Pardo, M., 2009

- Supervised Learning model
- Pavlov, M., & Ichise, R., 2007
- Al Hasan, M., Chaoji, V., Salem, S., & Zaki, M., 2006

- Similarity based estimation

- Use metrics to estimate proximities of pairs of researchers
- Based on those proximities to rank pairs of researchers
- The top pairs of researchers will likely to be the recommendations.

- Network structure based measurement

Some conventions:

- Common Neighbor:

- Jaccard’s coefficient:

- Preferential Attachment:

- Shortest Path:
- Defines the minimum number of edges connecting two nodes.

- PageRank:
- A random walk on the graph assigning the probability that a node could be reach. The proximity between a pair of node can be determined by the sum of the node PageRank.

- Predefine specific rules of a network
- Required a prior knowledge of the network
- The likelihood of any non-connected link is calculated according to those rules.

- Construct dimensional feature vectors
- Fetch these vectors to classifiers to optimize a target function (training model)
- Link prediction becomes a binary classification

- Related work (Al Hasan, M., Chaoji, V., Salem, S., & Zaki, M., 2006) using:

- Similarity based estimation
- Not quite well-perform

- Maximum likelihood
- Depend on the network

- Supervised learning model
- Perform better than similarity based estimation

Classifier Model

Features

- Co-authorship graph:
- Undirected graph G (V , E)

- Node or Vertex ( Author )
- Author ID
- Author Name

- Link or Edge (Co-authorship)
- Pair of author ID
- List of publication year followed by paper title
(Ex: 2004 :”Introduction to …” )

- Dataset is separated into 2 timing spans: 2000 – 2010 and 2010 – 2013
- The first is for training, the latter is for testing.
- Currently, there are 134,307 researchers in the network 2000 – 2013.
- Crop out authors who are not available in testing period, remaining 104,265 researchers

- Choose a subset from 104,265 researchers
- Experiment on 937 researchers

- Extract features from the network structure:
- Local similarity
- Common Neighbor
- Adamic/Adar
- Preferential Attachment
- Jaccard’s coefficient

- Global similarity
- Shortest Path
- PageRank

- Local similarity

- Feature for co-authorship network
- Keywordmatching (Cohen, S., & Ebel, L., 2013 )
A suggested metric to measure the textual relavancy uses a TF-IDF based function to determine.

- Keywordmatching (Cohen, S., & Ebel, L., 2013 )

- Productivity of the authors
Observe the “history” of an author

- For example, at a particular node A:

T0 = 2000

T1 = 2004

T2 = 2005

T3= 2006

n=3

m=1

n=4

m=2

n=6

m=2

n=7

m=3

n : No. of shared paper

m: No. of collaborators

i=0

i=1

i=2

i=3

- Productivity of the authors
Observe the “history” of an author

The “productivity” of node A:

α : a constant to assign the weight of each time period

- Set up training data
- Withn nodes, there is possible links.
- Among those, separate two links
- Positive link: links appear in training years.
- Negativelink: the remaining non-existent link in training years.
Note: Avoid bias training by balancing the number of instances between trueand false label.

- Classify all the non-existent links
- Compare with the testing data

- New links to predict: 57 links

- Measurement of performance
- Precision:
- Recall:
- Harmonic mean:

- Possible reasons
- Features
- Small set of data – sampling problem
- Instances of the negative links used for training

- Use weighted graph with parameters:
- No. of papers
- No. of neighbor
- No. of citations

- Focus on features that specifically target the co-authorship network:
- Citations
- Institutions

- Enlarge the experiment dataset size

- Link per year of training set is greater than link per year of testing set:
- In testing period, only consider “new” collaborations.
- Any collaborations between researchers that already has a link will be disregarded.

- The reason for proposing this feature:
- Keep track of the researcher tendency
- Give “bonus” to researcher who tend to collaborate with “new” colleagues rather than “old” ones
- Also give high score for prolific researchers (based on number of published paper)
