Machine learning models typically exert the same computational power on both easy and challenging examples. This is in stark contrast with humans, who use either fast (instinctive) or slow (analytical) thinking depending on the problem difficulty, a property called the dual-process theory of mind. We present FLOWGEN, a graph-generation model inspired by the dual-process theory of mind that generates large graphs incrementally. Depending on the difficulty of completing the graph at the current

The fast and slow models have identical architectures, but vary in the number of parameters and consequently the strength. Experiments on real-world graphs show that ours can successfully generate graphs similar to those generated by a single large model in a fraction of time.
