Decoding Molecular Graph Embeddings with Reinforcement Learning

18 Apr 2019  ·  Steven Kearnes, Li Li, Patrick Riley ·

We present RL-VAE, a graph-to-graph variational autoencoder that uses reinforcement learning to decode molecular graphs from latent embeddings. Methods have been described previously for graph-to-graph autoencoding, but these approaches require sophisticated decoders that increase the complexity of training and evaluation (such as requiring parallel encoders and decoders or non-trivial graph matching). Here, we repurpose a simple graph generator to enable efficient decoding and generation of molecular graphs.
