Social Networks

Social Media

- Users/objects are modeled as nodes, relationships as edges
- The observed networks are noisy and incomplete.
- Some users may have more than one account
- Communication may contain a lot of spam

- Missing attributes, links, having multiple references to the same entity
- Need to extract underlying information network.

- Attribute Prediction
- To predict values of missing attributes

- Link Prediction
- To predict missing links

- Entity Resolution
- To predict if two references refer to the same entity

- These prediction tasks can use:
- Local node information
- Relational information surrounding the node

- Goal: to deduce that two references refer to the same entity
- Can be based on node attributes (local)
- e.g. string similarity between titles or author names

- Local information only may not be enough

- Each task helps others get better predictions.
- How to combine the tasks?
- One after other (pipelined), or interleaved?

- GAIA:
- A Java library for applying multiple joint AP, LP, ER learning and inference tasks: [Namata et al., MLG 2009, Namata et al., KDUD 2009]
- Inference can be pipelined or interleaved.

- Motivation: To support declarative network inference
- Desiderata:
- User declaratively specifies the prediction features
- Local features
- Relational features

- Declaratively specify tasks
- Attribute prediction, Link prediction, Entity resolution

- Specify arbitrary interleaving or pipelining
- Support for complex prediction functions

- User declaratively specifies the prediction features

- Handle all that efficiently

Specify the domain

For attribute prediction, the domain is a subset of the graph nodes.

For link prediction and entity resolution, the domain is a subset of pairs of nodes.

Compute features

Make Predictions, and Compute Confidence in the Predictions

Choose Which Predictions to Apply

Specify the domain

Local: word frequency, income, etc.

Relational:degree, clustering coeff., no. of neighbors with each attribute value, common neighbors between pairs of nodes, etc.

Compute features

Make Predictions, and Compute Confidence in the Predictions

Choose Which Predictions to Apply

Specify the domain

Attribute prediction: the missing attribute

Link prediction: add link or not?

Entity resolution: merge two nodes or not?

Compute features

Make Predictions, and Compute Confidence in the Predictions

Specify the Domain

After predictions are made, the graph changes:

Attribute prediction changes local attributes.

Link prediction changes the graph links.

Entity resolution changes both local attributes and graph links.

- Use Datalog to express:
- Domains
- Local and relational features

- Extend Datalog with operational semantics (vs. fix-point semantics) to express:
- Predictions (in the form of updates)
- Iteration

- Domains are used to restrict the space of computation for the prediction elements.
- Space for this feature is |V|2
Similarity(X, Y, S) :−Node(X, Att=V1), Node(Y, Att=V1), S=f(V1, V2)

- Using this domain the space becomes |E|:
DOMAIN D(X,Y) :- Edge(X, Y)

- Other DOMAIN predicates:
- Equality
- Locality sensitive hashing
- String similarity joins
- Traverse edges

- Features of prediction elements are combined in a single predicate to create the feature vector:
DOMAIN D(X, Y) :- …

{

P1(X, Y, F1) :- …

…

Pn(X, Y, Fn) :- …

Features(X, Y, F1, …, Fn) :- P1(X, Y, F1) , …, Pn(X, Y, Fn)

}

DEFINE Merge(X, Y)

{

INSERT Edge(X, Z) :- Edge(Y, Z)

DELETE Edge(Y, Z)

UPDATE Node(X, A=ANew) :- Node(X,A=AX), Node(Y,A=AY), ANew=(AX+AY)/2

UPDATE Node(X, B=BNew) :- Node(X,B=BX), Node(X,B=BX), BNew=max(BX,BY)

DELETE Node(Y)

}

Merge(X, Y) :- Features (X, Y, F1,…,Fn), predict-ER(F1,…,Fn) = true, confidence-ER(F1,…,Fn) > 0.95

- The prediction and confidence functions are user defined functions
- Can be based on logistic regression, Bayes classifier, or any other classification algorithm
- The confidence is the class membership value
- In logistic regression, the confidence can be the value of the logistic function
- In Bayes classifier, the confidence can be the posterior probability value

- Iteration is supported by ITERATE construct.
- Takes the number of iterations as a parameter, or * to iterate until no more predictions.
- ITERATE (*)

predict-ER(F1,…,Fn) = true,

- Prototype based on Java Berkeley DB
- Implemented a query parser, plan generator, query evaluation engine
- Incremental maintenance:
- Aggregate/non-aggregate incremental maintenance
- DOMAIN maintenance

- Predicates in the program correspond to materialized tables (key/value maps).
- Every set of changes done by AP, LP, or ER are logged into two change tables ΔNodes and ΔEdges.
- Insertions: |Record | +1 |
- Deletions: |Record | -1 |
- Updates: deletion followed by an insertion

- Aggregate maintenance is performed by aggregating the change table then refreshing the old table.
- DOMAIN:
