Title: Advanced Topics in Graph Representation Learning
Speaker: Dr. Chao Huang, Assistant Professor, Musketeers Foundation Institute of Data Science (HKU-IDS) and Department of Computer Science, HKU
Period: February 23 - April 6, 2022 (Wednesday) (total 5 lectures, see detailed schedule below)
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Venue: Online via Zoom (Registration is required - by invitation)
Graph representation learning research has grown at an incredible pace in data mining and machine learning communities. This lecture series will cover recent core techniques and advances in graph representation research for modeling a variety of real-world applications and problems, including graph representation, heterogeneous graph mining, graph neural networks, recommendation with graphs, graph-based spatial-temporal learning, and others.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Chao Huang, Assistant Professor, Musketeers Foundation Institute of Data Science (HKU-IDS) and Department of Computer Science, HKU.
