E. Gaussier (Univ. Grenoble): Stochastic mixed membership models & link prediction in social networks
Stochastic mixed-membership models constitute a class of generative models that aim at explaining how new links are formed in social networks and are used to predict the evolution of networks. We will study in this presentation whether such models are indeed good models for link prediction. We will in particular focus on two properties of social networks, homophily and preferential attachment, and assess to which extent stochastic mixed-membership models comply with them.
