Discriminative subgraphs are widely used to define the feature space for graph classification in large graph databases. Several scalable approaches have been proposed to mine discriminative subgraphs. However, their intensive computation needs prevent them from mining large databases. We propose an efficient method GAIA for mining discriminative subgraphs for graph classification in large databases. Our method employs a novel subgraph encoding approach to support an arbitrary subgraph pattern

In this manner, GAIA is able to find discriminative subgraph patterns much faster than other algorithms. Additionally, we take advantage of parallel computing to further improve the quality of resulting patterns. In the end, we employ sequential coverage to generate association rules as graph classifiers using patterns mined by GAIA. Extensive experiments have been performed to analyze the performance of GAIA and to compare it with two other state-ofthe-art approaches. GAIA outperforms the other approaches both in terms of classification accuracy and runtime efficiency.
