I will introduce some of the basic ideas behind network embedding, and show how a complicated or high-dimensional graph can be represented as a collection of points in a lower-dimensional vector space. This will be an expository talk focusing on random walk-based methods, and how these methods are related to certain matrix-based methods and diffusion maps. Throughout the talk, I'll show how these techniques are useful for machine learning tasks like social network analysis and image recognition.
