Learning objectives


The student must acquire knowledge and skills in advanced graph data analytics, for example:

  • Predictive analysis on diverse types of graphs, such as networks, spatial networks, and knowledge graphs

  • Graph representation learning and graph embeddings

  • Graph kernels

  • Probabilistic models

  •  Advanced analytical tasks, such as node/graph classification, link prediction, graph integration, graph alignment, and question answering

Network dynamics 

  • Network and knowledge graph evolution

  • Information diffusion


  • Be able to demonstrate knowledge of advanced graph data analytics methods and techniques
  • Be able to select relevant concepts and techniques for a given problem within advanced graph data analytics
  • Be able to use correct notation and terminology within advanced graph data analytics


The student must be able to apply advanced graph data analytics methods and techniques theoretically and practically including application in a problem solving.
