  4. Subgraph-based graph representation learning (SGRL) has been recently proposed to deal with some fundamental challenges encountered by canonical graph neural networks (GNNs), and has demonstrated advantages in many important data science applications such as link, relation and motif prediction. However, current SGRL approaches suffer from scalability issues since they require extracting subgraphs for each training or test query. Recent solutions that scale up canonical GNNs may not apply to SGRL. Here, we propose a novel framework SUREL for scalable SGRL by co-designing the learning algorithm and its system support. SUREL adopts walk-based decomposition of subgraphs and reuses the walks to form subgraphs, which substantially reduces the redundancy of subgraph extraction and supports parallel computation. Experiments over six homogeneous, heterogeneous and higher-order graphs with millions of nodes and edges demonstrate the effectiveness and scalability of SUREL. In particular, compared to SGRL baselines, SUREL achieves 10X speed-up with comparable or even better prediction performance; while compared to canonical GNNs, SUREL achieves 50% prediction accuracy improvement.
  5. Graph structured data are abundant in the real world. Among different graph types, directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) are of particular interest to machine learning researchers, as many machine learning models are realized as computations on DAGs, including neural networks and Bayesian networks. In this paper, we study deep generative models for DAGs, and propose a novel DAG variational autoencoder (D-VAE). To encode DAGs into the latent space, we leverage graph neural networks. We propose an asynchronous message passing scheme that allows encoding the computations on DAGs, rather than using existing simultaneous message passing schemes to encode local graph structures. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed DVAE through two tasks: neural architecture search and Bayesian network structure learning. Experiments show that our model not only generates novel and valid DAGs, but also produces a smooth latent space that facilitates searching for DAGs with better performance through Bayesian optimization.
