Variational Spectral Graph Convolutional Networks

Louis Tiao, Pantelis Elinas, Harrison Nguyen, Edwin V. Bonilla

We propose a Bayesian approach to spectral graph convolutional networks (GCNs) where the graph parameters are considered as random variables. We develop an inference algorithm to estimate the posterior over these parameters and use it to incorporate prior information that is not naturally considered by standard GCN. The key to our approach is to define a smooth posterior parameterization over the adjacency matrix characterizing the graph, which we estimate via stochastic variational inference. Our experiments show that we can outperform standard GCN methods in the task of semi-supervised classification in noisy-graph regimes.
