DeepWalk

DeepWalk uses short random walks to learn representations for vertices in graphs.

Usage

Example Usage
$deepwalk --input example_graphs/karate.adjlist --output karate.embeddings

--input: input_filename

  1. --format adjlist for an adjacency list, e.g:

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 11 12 13 14 18 20 22 32
    2 1 3 4 8 14 18 20 22 31
    3 1 2 4 8 9 10 14 28 29 33
    ...
    
  2. --format edgelist for an edge list, e.g:

    1 2
    1 3
    1 4
    ...
    
  3. --format mat for a Matlab .mat file containing an adjacency matrix

    (note, you must also specify the variable name of the adjacency matrix --matfile-variable-name)

--output: output_filename

The output representations in skipgram format - first line is header, all other lines are node-id and d dimensional representation:

34 64
1 0.016579 -0.033659 0.342167 -0.046998 ...
2 -0.007003 0.265891 -0.351422 0.043923 ...
...
Full Command List
The full list of command line options is available with $deepwalk --help

Evaluation

Here, we will show how to evaluate DeepWalk on the BlogCatalog dataset used in the DeepWalk paper. First, we run the following command to produce its DeepWalk embeddings:

deepwalk --format mat --input example_graphs/blogcatalog.mat
--max-memory-data-size 0 --number-walks 80 --representation-size 128 --walk-length 40 --window-size 10
--workers 1 --output example_graphs/blogcatalog.embeddings

The parameters specified here are the same as in the paper. If you are using a multi-core machine, try to set --workers to a larger number for faster training. On a single machine with 24 Xeon E5-2620 @ 2.00GHz CPUs, this command takes about 20 minutes to finish (--workers is set to 20). Then, we evaluate the learned embeddings on a multi-label node classification task with example_graphs/scoring.py:

python example_graphs/scoring.py --emb example_graphs/blogcatalog.embeddings
--network example_graphs/blogcatalog.mat
--num-shuffle 10 --all

This command finishes in 8 minutes on the same machine. For faster evaluation, you can set --num-shuffle to a smaller number, but expect more fluctuation in performance. The micro F1 and macro F1 scores we get with different ratio of labeled nodes are as follows:

% Labeled Nodes 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90%
Micro-F1 (%) 35.86 38.51 39.96 40.76 41.51 41.85 42.27 42.35 42.40
Macro-F1 (%) 21.08 23.98 25.71 26.73 27.68 28.28 28.88 28.70 28.21

Note that the current version of DeepWalk is based on a newer version of gensim, which may have a different implementation of the word2vec model. To completely reproduce the results in our paper, you will probably have to install an older version of gensim(version 0.10.2).

Requirements

  • numpy
  • scipy

(may have to be independently installed) or pip install -r requirements.txt to install all dependencies

Installation

  1. cd deepwalk
  2. pip install -r requirements.txt
  3. python setup.py install
