Talk by Rianne van den Berg

You are all cordially invited to the AMLab seminar on Tuesday April 11 at 16:00 in C3.163, where Rianne van den Berg will give a talk titled “Graph convolutional networks as recommender systems”. Afterwards there are the usual drinks and snacks!

Abstract: Graph convolutional neural networks as introduced by Thomas Kipf and Max Welling have been used for link prediction and entity classification in undirected graphs, and more recently also in multi-relational directed graphs. In this talk I will present preliminary results on the application of relational graph convolutional networks to link prediction in recommender systems. I will discuss the possibility to merge interaction data between users and items with knowledge graphs and social networks, and show preliminary results on how this affects the performance in rating predictions.
