We consider the problem of metric learning and semi-supervised clustering
when a set of relative distance constraints
is provided as input, together with the observations.
The relative distance constraints are elicited from questions of the form:
"which one of the items Ehsan Amid, Aristides Gionis, Antti Ukkonen, "A kernel-learning approach to semi-supervised clustering with relative distance comparisons", European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD) 2015 (pdf) The code of the developed method can be found in github. |

We consider the problem of inferring the geographical locations of linked objects, and we propose a probabilistic method that takes into account partial knowledge of object location, as well as the structure of the network that links the objects. Our method is presented in the following paper: Eric Malmi, Arno Solin, Aristides Gionis, "The blind leading the blind: Network-based location estimation under uncertainty", European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD) 2015 (pdf) The code of the developed method can be found in github. |

We consider the task of organizing the twitter friends of a user into social circles, or lists. Rather than making every user start from scratch when organizing their friends, we want to find a way to use the lists already created by other users to recommend groupings automatically. Our method is presented in the following paper: Karmen Dykstra, Jefrey Lijffijt, Aristides Gionis, "Covering the egonet: A crowdsourcing approach to social circle discovery on twitter", to appear in the International Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM) 2015 (pdf) You can also check the relevant blog post. The code and the datasets used in the paper can be found in github. |

We study the problem of defining and computing distance measures between directed acycling graphs (dags). Our methods have applications in analyzing preference data and network information cascades. The work is presented in the following DMKD article. Eric Malmi, Nikolaj Tatti, Aristides Gionis, "Beyond rankings: comparing directed acyclic graphs", Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (DMKD) 2015 (pdf of authors' copy; the final publication is available at link.springer.com) Here is also a relevant blog post. The code and the datasets used in the paper can be found in github. |

The LCSP problem asks to find large common patterns in temporal event sequences. An exact algorithm and polynomial-time heuristics are presented in our paper. Orestis Kostakis and Panagiotis Papapetrou, "Finding the longest common sub-pattern in sequences of temporal intervals", Journal of Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (DMKD) 2015 (pdf) The datasets used in the paper and the code for the exact algorithm are available here. |

Starting from a set of query nodes of a graph, we want to find a subgraph with high discrepancy, meaning that the subgraph should have as many query nodes as possible, compared to non-query nodes. Furthermore, we assume that we do not know the graph structure in advance, and we want to discover it during the process. Our method is described in the following paper. Aristides Gionis, Michael Mathioudakis, Antti Ukkonen, "Bump hunting in the dark: Local discrepancy maximization on graphs", IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) 2015 (pdf) The datasets used in the paper and the code are available in bitbucket. |

Given a graph with timestampts on the edges, we want to find a subgraph with many edges that take place in short time intervals. Our solution appears in the following paper.

Given a graph with vertex weights and edge distances, we want to find a heavy subgraph whose vertices are near to each other. Our solution appears in the following paper.

"Agony minimization" is a process that allows to rank the vertices of a directed graph in order to minimize certain cost on backward edges. The paper below introduces a method that runs in O(m^2) time, in worst-case, and it is faster in practice. The previous best method has running time O(nm^2).

Given a graph with vertex labels, we ask to find top-k overlapping communities. We require that each community is described succinctly by few vertex labels and it induces a dense subgraph, while the top-k communities should cover as many edges of the graph as possible. Our solution is described in the following article. Esther Galbrun, Aristides Gionis, Nikolaj Tatti, "Overlapping community detection in labeled graphs", Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (DMKD) 2014 (preprint) The code is available here. |

Confidence bands are used to visualize time-series data and provide an intuitive description of the data variability. We have developed a method to construct confidence bands such that the family-wise error rate is kept under control. The method is described in the following DMKD article.

Given a set of nodes in a graph, we find a nested sequence of communities centered around those nodes. The density of the nested communities decreases as we move from the starting set of nodes to the periphery. The method is described in the following paper.

Given a set of clusterings, we want to find a single clustering that agrees as much as possible with the input clusterings.
