Linked Recurrent Neural Networks [article]

Zhiwei Wang, Yao Ma, Dawei Yin, Jiliang Tang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) have been proven to be effective in modeling sequential data and they have been applied to boost a variety of tasks such as document classification, speech recognition and machine translation. Most of existing RNN models have been designed for sequences assumed to be identically and independently distributed (i.i.d). However, in many real-world applications, sequences are naturally linked. For example, web documents are connected by hyperlinks; and genes

On the other hand, linked sequences offer link information in addition to the sequential information, which enables unprecedented opportunities to build advanced RNN models. In this paper, we study the problem of RNN for linked sequences. In particular, we introduce a principled approach to capture link information and propose a linked Recurrent Neural Network (LinkedRNN), which models sequential and link information coherently. We conduct experiments on real-world datasets from multiple domains and the experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.

Yao Ma, Suhang Wang, Charu C. Aggarwal, Dawei Yin, Jiliang Tang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) leverage the great power in representation learning on regular grid data such as image and video. Recently, increasing attention has been paid on generalizing CNNs to graph or network data which is highly irregular. Some focus on graph-level representation learning while others aim to learn node-level representations. These methods have been shown to boost the performance of many graph-level tasks such as graph classification and node-level tasks such as

However, many real-world graphs have multiple types of relations and they can be naturally modeled as multi-dimensional graphs with each type of relation as a dimension. Multi-dimensional graphs bring about richer interactions between dimensions, which poses tremendous challenges to the graph convolutional neural networks designed for single-dimensional graphs. In this paper, we study the problem of graph convolutional networks for multi-dimensional graphs and propose a multi-dimensional convolutional neural network model mGCN aiming to capture rich information in learning node-level representations for multi-dimensional graphs. Comprehensive experiments on real-world multi-dimensional graphs demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.

Robust Reinforcement Learning with Wasserstein Constraint [article]

Linfang Hou, Liang Pang, Xin Hong, Yanyan Lan, Zhiming Ma, Dawei Yin
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Robust Reinforcement Learning aims to find the optimal policy with some extent of robustness to environmental dynamics. Existing learning algorithms usually enable the robustness through disturbing the current state or simulating environmental parameters in a heuristic way, which lack quantified robustness to the system dynamics (i.e. transition probability). To overcome this issue, we leverage Wasserstein distance to measure the disturbance to the reference transition kernel. With Wasserstein
more » ... istance, we are able to connect transition kernel disturbance to the state disturbance, i.e. reduce an infinite-dimensional optimization problem to a finite-dimensional risk-aware problem. Through the derived risk-aware optimal Bellman equation, we show the existence of optimal robust policies, provide a sensitivity analysis for the perturbations, and then design a novel robust learning algorithm--Wasserstein Robust Advantage Actor-Critic algorithm (WRAAC). The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is verified in the Cart-Pole environment.

Geometry Contrastive Learning on Heterogeneous Graphs [article]

Shichao Zhu, Chuan Zhou, Anfeng Cheng, Shirui Pan, Shuaiqiang Wang, Dawei Yin, Bin Wang
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Self-supervised learning (especially contrastive learning) methods on heterogeneous graphs can effectively get rid of the dependence on supervisory data. Meanwhile, most existing representation learning methods embed the heterogeneous graphs into a single geometric space, either Euclidean or hyperbolic. This kind of single geometric view is usually not enough to observe the complete picture of heterogeneous graphs due to their rich semantics and complex structures. Under these observations,
more » ... paper proposes a novel self-supervised learning method, termed as Geometry Contrastive Learning (GCL), to better represent the heterogeneous graphs when supervisory data is unavailable. GCL views a heterogeneous graph from Euclidean and hyperbolic perspective simultaneously, aiming to make a strong merger of the ability of modeling rich semantics and complex structures, which is expected to bring in more benefits for downstream tasks. GCL maximizes the mutual information between two geometric views by contrasting representations at both local-local and local-global semantic levels. Extensive experiments on four benchmarks data sets show that the proposed approach outperforms the strong baselines, including both unsupervised methods and supervised methods, on three tasks, including node classification, node clustering and similarity search.

Graph Enhanced BERT for Query Understanding [article]

Juanhui Li, Yao Ma, Wei Zeng, Suqi Cheng, Jiliang Tang, Shuaiqiang Wang, Dawei Yin
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Query understanding plays a key role in exploring users' search intents and facilitating users to locate their most desired information. However, it is inherently challenging since it needs to capture semantic information from short and ambiguous queries and often requires massive task-specific labeled data. In recent years, pre-trained language models (PLMs) have advanced various natural language processing tasks because they can extract general semantic information from large-scale corpora.
more » ... erefore, there are unprecedented opportunities to adopt PLMs for query understanding. However, there is a gap between the goal of query understanding and existing pre-training strategies -- the goal of query understanding is to boost search performance while existing strategies rarely consider this goal. Thus, directly applying them to query understanding is sub-optimal. On the other hand, search logs contain user clicks between queries and urls that provide rich users' search behavioral information on queries beyond their content. Therefore, in this paper, we aim to fill this gap by exploring search logs. In particular, to incorporate search logs into pre-training, we first construct a query graph where nodes are queries and two queries are connected if they lead to clicks on the same urls. Then we propose a novel graph-enhanced pre-training framework, GE-BERT, which can leverage both query content and the query graph. In other words, GE-BERT can capture both the semantic information and the users' search behavioral information of queries. Extensive experiments on various query understanding tasks have demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed framework.

Graphs are essential representations of many real-world data such as social networks. Recent years have witnessed the increasing efforts made to extend the neural network models to graph-structured data. These methods, which are usually known as the graph neural networks, have been applied to advance many graphs related tasks such as reasoning dynamics of the physical system, graph classification, and node classification. Most of the existing graph neural network models have been designed for

Current graph neural network models cannot utilize the dynamic information in dynamic graphs. However, the dynamic information has been proven to enhance the performance of many graph analytic tasks such as community detection and link prediction. Hence, it is necessary to design dedicated graph neural networks for dynamic graphs. In this paper, we propose DGNN, a new Dynamic Graph Neural Network model, which can model the dynamic information as the graph evolving. In particular, the proposed framework can keep updating node information by capturing the sequential information of edges (interactions), the time intervals between edges and information propagation coherently. Experimental results on various dynamic graphs demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.

2016 Chinese Optics Letters (COL)  
A 38.88 MHz time-stretch line-scan imaging system with parallel interleaving detection is experimentally demonstrated. Since only half-chromatic dispersion is used to stretch optical pulses for wavelength-to-time mapping, the power efficiency is significantly improved by 6.5 dB. Furthermore, the theoretical analysis indicates that the power loss can be efficiently reduced for scan rates less than 100 MHz. In addition, a mathematical model for signal-to-noise evaluation is derived, including

Modeling Topical Relevance for Multi-Turn Dialogue Generation [article]

Hainan Zhang, Yanyan Lan, Liang Pang, Hongshen Chen, Zhuoye Ding, Dawei Yin
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Topic drift is a common phenomenon in multi-turn dialogue. Therefore, an ideal dialogue generation models should be able to capture the topic information of each context, detect the relevant context, and produce appropriate responses accordingly. However, existing models usually use word or sentence level similarities to detect the relevant contexts, which fail to well capture the topical level relevance. In this paper, we propose a new model, named STAR-BTM, to tackle this problem. Firstly,

Finally, the attention weights and the topic distribution are utilized in the decoding process to generate the corresponding responses. Experimental results on both Chinese customer services data and English Ubuntu dialogue data show that STAR-BTM significantly outperforms several state-of-the-art methods, in terms of both metric-based and human evaluations.

2009 Text Retrieval Conference  
This paper describes the method we use in the diversity task of web track in TREC 2009. The problem we aim to solve is the diversification of search results for ambiguous web queries. We present a model based on knowledge of the diversity of query subtopics to generate a diversified ranking for retrieved documents. We expand the original query into several related queries, assuming that query expansions expose subtopics of the original query. Moreover, each query expansion is given a weight

We issue all those expanded queries including the original query to a standard BM25 search engine, then re-rank the retrieved documents to generate the final ranking. Our method can detect possible subtopics of a given query and provide a reasonable ranking that satisfies both relevancy and diversity metrics. The TREC evaluations show our method is effective on the diversity task.

Gang Wang, Ziyi Guo, Xiang Li, Dawei Yin, Shuai Ma
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Collaborative filtering has been largely used to advance modern recommender systems to predict user preference. A key component in collaborative filtering is representation learning, which aims to project users and items into a low dimensional space to capture collaborative signals. However, the scene information, which has effectively guided many recommendation tasks, is rarely considered in existing collaborative filtering methods. To bridge this gap, we focus on scene-based collaborative

SceneRec formally defines a scene as a set of pre-defined item categories that occur simultaneously in real-life situations and creatively designs an item-category-scene hierarchical structure to build a scene-based graph. In the scene-based graph, we adopt graph neural networks to learn scene-specific representation on each item node, which is further aggregated with latent representation learned from collaborative interactions to make recommendations. We perform extensive experiments on real-world E-commerce datasets and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
