Urban Networks Clustering Using Graph Embeddings
9
2019
The most recent approaches for learning representations of graphs have been motivated for achieving higher efficiency on graph algorithms and overcoming feature engineering problems. One of such approaches consists on graph embedding methods, which are representations in a vector space that try to preserve the graph properties. Despite these methods have been already used in several areas (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, and Linguistics) for machine learning tasks (e.g., link prediction, graph classification), other application scenarios are yet to be explored. Thus, this work proposes an application of graph embeddings in urban morphology. Specifically, we use “graph2vec” and “Anonymous Walk Embeddings” algorithms for analysing a set of urban networks. Our results suggest that the obtained vector representations allow to distinguish tree-like networks from grid-like networks. The differences in dead-ends culs-de-sac predominance and other network patterns support these results. Furthermore, this kind of partition is in the line with one of the taxonomy tendencies existing in the literature, which are partially rooted in network evolution processes.

Student Theses at HSE must be completed in accordance with the University Rules and regulations specified by each educational programme.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.

Student theses are objects of copyright and their use is subject to limitations in accordance with the Russian Federation’s law on intellectual property.

In the event that a thesis is quoted or otherwise used, reference to the author’s name and the source of quotation is required.
