Learning for graph matching and beyond 图匹配的机器学习求解

Speaker:   Prof. Junchi Yan

Time:       10:00-11:00, Sep. 5

Location:  SIST 1A 200

Host:       Prof. Jingyi Yu



In this talk, I will first give a brief introduction on graph matching, which is a combinatorial problem in nature. Then we will show a deep network based pipeline for addressing the graph matching problem via deep learning. The model involves learning of the graph node embedding, cross-graph affinity learning, and a Sinkhorn layer for solving the linear assignment task. We will also discuss some working paper on joint matching and link prediction among two or multiple graphs. In the end, some discussion will be given on the future work and outlook for connecting graph matching with machine learning.
