# Graph Edge Prediction Task

(Redirected from Relationship extraction)

A Graph Edge Prediction Task a multiclass classification task that requires the class prediction of a graph edge for one graph node (to another graph node).

**AKA:**Link Prediction, Network Edge Prediction.**Context:**- It can be solved by a Link Prediction System (that can implement a link prediction algorithm).
- It can range from being a Supervised Link Prediction Task (with labeled link training records) to being an Unsupervised Link Prediction Task.
- It can range from being a Directed Graph Link Prediction Task to being Undirected Graph Link Prediction Task.
- It can range from being a Structural Link Prediction Task (with partially observed graphs) to being a Temporal Link Prediction Task (with fully observed graphs).

**Example(s):****Counter-Example(s):****See:**Link-based Object Classification Task.

- QUOTE: Link prediction is the problem of predicting the presence or absence of edges between nodes of a graph. There are two types of link prediction: (i) structural, where the input is a partially observed graph, and we wish to predict the status of edges for unobserved pairs of nodes, and (ii) temporal, where we have a sequence of fully observed graphs at various time steps as input, and our goal is to predict the graph state at the next time step. Both problems have important practical applications, such as predicting interactions between pairs of proteins and recommending friends in social networks respectively.

- QUOTE: Link prediction is a complex, inherently relational, task. Be it in the domain of scientific citations, social networks or hypertext links, the underlying data are extremely noisy and the characteristics useful for prediction are not readily available in a “flat” file format, but rather involve complex relationships among objects.
