User-Guided Clustering via Meta-Path Selection

In this chapter, we study another relation strength-aware mining problem: user-guided clustering of a certain type of objects, based on their involvement of multiple types of relations, encoded by meta-paths, in a heterogeneous information network. In an application, a user often has the best say on the kinds of clusters she would like to get, and such guidance will lead to the selection of appropriate combination of weighted meta-paths for generation of desired clustering results.

7.1 OVERVIEW

With the advent of massive social and information networks, link-based clustering of objects in networks becomes increasingly important since it may help discover hidden knowledge in large networks. ...
