Computational solution of networks versus cluster grouping for social network contact recommender system

Arnold Adimabua Ojugo, Debby Oghenevwede Otakore


Graphs have become the dominant life-form of many tasks as they advance a structural system to represent many tasks and their corresponding relationships. A powerful role of networks and graphs is to bridge local feats that exist in vertices or nodal agents as they blossom into patterns that helps explain how nodes and their corresponding edges impacts a complex effect that ripple via a graph. User cluster are formed as a result of interactions between entities – such that many users today, hardly categorize their contacts into groups such as “family”, “friends”, “colleagues”. The need to analyze such user social graph via implicit clusters, enables the dynamism in contact management. Study seeks to implement this dynamism via a comparative study of the deep neural network and friend suggest algorithm. We analyze a user’s implicit social graph and seek to automatically create custom contact groups using metrics that classify such contacts based on a user’s affinity to contacts. Experimental results demonstrate the importance of both the implicit group relationships and the interaction-based affinity in suggesting friends.
