Abstract

Multi-label network classification is a well-known task that is being used in a wide variety of web-based and non-web-based domains. It can be formalized as a multi-relational learning task for predicting nodes labels based on their relations within the network. In sparse networks, this prediction task can be very challenging when only implicit feedback information is available such as in predicting user interests in social networks. Current approaches rely on learning per-node latent representations by utilizing the network structure, however, implicit feedback relations are naturally sparse and contain only positive observed feedbacks which mean that these approaches will treat all observed relations as equally important. This is not necessarily the case in real-world scenarios as implicit relations might have semantic weights which reflect the strength of those relations. If those weights can be approximated, the models can be trained to differentiate between strong and weak relations. In this paper, we propose a weighted personalized two-stage multi-relational matrix factorization model with Bayesian personalized ranking loss for network classification that utilizes basic transitive node similarity function for weighting implicit feedback relations. Experiments show that the proposed model significantly outperforms the state-of-art models on three different real-world web-based datasets and a biology-based dataset.
