  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Mon, Jul 22, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

    Title:
    Graph Embedding Algorithms for Attributed and Temporal Graphs

    Abstract:
    Learning low-dimensional representations of nodes in a graph has recently gained attention due to its wide applicability in network tasks such as graph visualization, link prediction, node classification and clustering. The models proposed often preserve certain characteristic properties of the graph and are tested on these tasks. In this thesis, I propose to extend the graph embedding work in three directions. Firstly, I yield insights into the existing models and understand the universality of the learned embeddings and embedding methods. Specifically, I study the dependence of performance on a task on the model hyperparameters of the embedding method. I also analyze the characteristics of models required for each network task. Further, I propose a benchmark to evaluate any graph embedding approach and draw insights into it. Secondly, I propose an extension of graph embedding approach which can capture edge attributes of a graph. I show that capturing such attributes can be useful in link prediction and propose a model to learn edge attributes along with higher order proximity and social roles. Thirdly, I build models which can update embeddings efficiently for streaming graphs and can capture temporal patterns in sequential graphs.
