- Talk by Reynold Cheng on Meta Paths and Meta Structures
- Aalborg Ø
A heterogeneous information network (HIN) is a graph model in which objects and edges are annotated with types. Large and complex databases, such as YAGO and DBLP, can be modeled as HINs. In this talk, we will give a review of meta paths, as well as how they are used to define relevance.
We further generalise the notion of a meta path to “meta structure”. Meta structure, which is more expressive than the meta path, describes complex relationship between two HIN objects.
