Network Creation: Overview

  • Christian Borgelt
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7250)

Abstract

Although networks are a very natural and straightforward way of organizing heterogeneous data, as argued in the introductory chapters, few data sources are in this form. We rather find the data we want to fuse, connect, analyze and thus exploit for creative discoveries, stored in flat files, (relational) databases, text document collections and the like. As a consequence, we need, as an initial step, methods that construct a network representation by analyzing tabular and textual data, in order to identify entities that can serve as nodes and to extract relevant relationships that should be represented by edges.
