  1. Ensemble clustering generally integrates basic partitions into a consensus one through a graph partitioning method, which, however, has two limitations: 1) it neglects to reuse original features; 2) obtaining consensus partition with learnable graph representations is still under-explored. In this paper, we propose a novel Adversarial Graph Auto-Encoders (AGAE) model to incorporate ensemble clustering into a deep graph embedding process. Specifically, graph convolutional network is adopted as probabilistic encoder to jointly integrate the information from feature content and consensus graph, and a simple inner product layer is used as decoder to reconstruct graph with the encoded latent variables (i.e., embedding representations). Moreover, we develop an adversarial regularizer to guide the network training with an adaptive partition-dependent prior. Experiments on eight real-world datasets are presented to show the effectiveness of AGAE over several state-of-the-art deep embedding and ensemble clustering methods.

  2. Multi-View Clustering (MVC) aims to find the cluster structure shared by multiple views of a particular dataset. Existing MVC methods mainly integrate the raw data from different views, while ignoring the high-level information. Thus, their performance may degrade due to the conflict between heterogeneous features and the noises existing in each individual view. To overcome this problem, we propose a novel Multi-View Ensemble Clustering (MVEC) framework to solve MVC in an Ensemble Clustering (EC) way, which generates Basic Partitions (BPs) for each view individually and seeks for a consensus partition among all the BPs. By this means, we naturally leverage the complementary information of multi-view data in the same partition space. Instead of directly fusing BPs, we employ the low-rank and sparse decomposition to explicitly consider the connection between different views and detect the noises in each view. Moreover, the spectral ensemble clustering task is also involved by our framework with a carefully designed constraint, making MVEC a unified optimization framework to achieve the final consensus partition. Experimental results on six real-world datasets show the efficacy of our approach compared with both MVC and EC methods.
