Namata Jr. Department of Computer Science University of Maryland College Park, MD 20742 USA Lise Getoor Department of Computer Science University of Maryland College Park, MD 20742 USA namatag@cs.umd.edu getoor@cs.umd.edu ABSTRACT There is a growing wealth of data describing networks of various types, including social networks, physical networks such as transportation or communication networks, and biological networks. At the same time, there is a growing interest in analyzing these networks, in order to uncover general laws that govern their structure and evolution, and patterns and predictive models to develop better policies and practices. However, a fundamental challenge in dealing with this newly available observational data describing networks is that the data is often of dubious quality “ it is noisy and incomplete “ and before any analysis method can be applied, the data must be cleaned, and missing information inferred. In this paper, we introduce the notion of graph identi cation, which explicitly models the inference of a œcleaned  output network from a noisy input graph. It is this output network that is appropriate for further analysis. We present an illustrative example and use the example to http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM SIGKDD Explorations Newsletter Association for Computing Machinery
