CHAPTER 8

Research Frontiers

In this book, we introduced some general principles and methodologies for mining heterogeneous information networks. Although homogeneous networks are interesting subjects to study, real-world objects are usually connected via heterogeneous types of objects in complex ways, carrying critical information and rich data semantics, as shown in the examples like authors linking with papers and venues, and patients linking with diseases and treatments. Clearly, heterogeneous information networks preserve rich semantic information of the real-world data. Mining directly on heterogeneous information networks often leads to in-depth understanding of the relationships among different types of data and their regularities, models, ...
