  • Patent number: 11442963
    Abstract: There is provided a method and a system for ranking subgraphs as potential explanations for a labelled edge type class. A first graph representing labelled digital items is obtained, where each labelled digital item is represented as an entity node connected via a labelled edge type to a property value node. The first graph is combined with a second graph representing structured relations in the labelled digital items to obtain a combined graph. Unlabelled digital items are received and matched to respective subgraphs in the combined graph. A machine learning model is used to embed the combined graph to generate graph vectors, and an expressivity score between matched subgraphs and respective labelled edge types based on the generated graph vectors. The matched subgraphs are ranked based on the expressivity score to obtain a ranked set of subgraphs as potential explanations for a respective labelled edge type class.
