Exploring the power of links in data mining

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Algorithms like PageRank and HITS have been developed in late 1990s to explore links among Web pages to discover authoritative pages and hubs. Links have also been popularly used in citation analysis and social network analysis. We show that the power of links can be explored thoroughly in data mining, such as classification, clustering, information integration, and object distinction. Some recent results of our research that explore the crucial information hidden inside links will be introduced, including (1) multi-relational classification, (2) user-guided clustering, (3) link-based clustering, and (4) object distinction analysis. The power of links in other analysis tasks will also be discussed in the talk.
