Graph representation learning (GRL) on attribute-missing graphs, which is a common yet challenging problem, has recently attracted considerable attention. We observe that existing literature: 1) isolates the learning of attribute and structure embedding thus fails to take full advantages of the two types of information; 2) imposes too strict distribution assumption on the latent space variables, leading to less discriminative feature representations. In this paper, based on the idea of

Specifically, three strategies have been conducted. First, we entangle the attribute embedding and structure embedding by introducing a siamese network structure to share the parameters learned by both processes, which allows the network training to benefit from more abundant and diverse information. Second, we introduce a K-nearest neighbor (KNN) and structural constraint enhanced learning mechanism to improve the quality of latent features of the missing attributes by filtering unreliable connections. Third, we manually mask the connections on multiple adjacent matrices and force the structural information embedding sub-network to recover the true adjacent matrix, thus enforcing the resulting network to be able to selectively exploit more high-order discriminative features for data completion. Extensive experiments on six benchmark datasets demonstrate the superiority of our SAGA against the state-of-the-art methods.
