Adversarial Graph Disentanglement

A real-world graph has a complex topology structure, which is often formed by the interaction of different latent factors. Disentanglement of these latent factors can effectively improve the robustness and interpretability of node representation of the graph. However, most existing methods lack consideration of the intrinsic differences in links caused by factor entanglement. In this paper, we propose an Adversarial Disentangled Graph Convolutional Network (ADGCN) for disentangled graph representation learning. Specifically, a dynamic multi-component convolution layer is designed to achieve micro-disentanglement by inferring latent components that caused links between nodes. On the basis of micro-disentanglement, we further propose a macro-disentanglement adversarial regularizer that improves the separability between component distributions, thus restricting interdependence among components. Additionally, to learn collaboratively a better disentangled representation and topological structure, a diversity preserving node sampling-based progressive refinement of graph structure is proposed. The experimental results on various real-world graph data verify that our ADGCN obtains remarkably more favorable performance over currently available alternatives.
