Point of View Based Clustering of Socio-Semantic Networks

Classic algorithms for community detection in social networks use the structural information to identify groups in the social network, i.e., how clusters are formed according to the topology of the relationships. However, these methods don’t take into account any semantic information which could guide the clustering process, and which may add elements to do further analyses. The method we propose, uses in a conjoint way, the semantic information from the social network, represented by the point of view, and its structural information. This is, by the combination of the relationships, expressed by the edges on one hand, and the implicit relations deduced from the semantic information on the other hand.
