Robust Graph Embedding with Noisy Link Weights
Proceedings of the Twenty-Second International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics, PMLR 89:664-673, 2019.
We propose $\beta$-graph embedding for robustly learning feature vectors from data vectors and noisy link weights. A newly introduced empirical moment $\beta$-score reduces the influence of contamination and robustly measures the difference between the underlying correct expected weights of links and the specified generative model. The proposed method is computationally tractable; we employ a minibatch-based efficient stochastic algorithm and prove that this algorithm locally minimizes the empirical moment $\beta$-score. We conduct numerical experiments on synthetic and real-world datasets.
