Block Model Guided Unsupervised Feature Selection

1 code implementation5 Jul 2020 Zilong Bai, Hoa Nguyen, Ian Davidson

Existing efforts for unsupervised feature selection on attributed networks have explored either directly regenerating the links by solving for $f$ such that $f(\mathbf{y}_i,\mathbf{y}_j) \approx \mathbf{A}_{i, j}$ or finding community structure in $\mathbf{A}$ and using the features in $\mathbf{Y}$ to predict these communities.
