Title: Adversarial Robustness of Machine Learning Models for Graphs

Abstract — Graph neural networks and node embedding techniques have recently achieved impressive results in many graph learning tasks. Despite their proliferation, studies of their robustness properties are still very limited -- yet, in domains where graph learning methods are often used, e.g. the web, adversaries are common. In my talk, I will shed light on the aspect of adversarial robustness for state-of-the art graph-based learning techniques. I will highlight the unique challenges and opportunities that come along with the graph setting and introduce different perturbation approaches showcasing the methods vulnerabilities. I will conclude with a short discussion of methods improving robustness.
