An Experimental Comparison of the Link Prediction Techniques in Social Networks

D. Sharma, U. Sharma, and Sunil Kumar Khatr

Abstract—Link prediction is a very well studied problem as it has applications in many different areas. Many algorithms have been presented in the literature for the Link prediction problem. The general for of the problem is that given the topology of graph G at a certain time t, we need to predict the topology of the graph G at time t’ where t’ > t assuming that the number of nodes does not change. The techniques used for Link prediction are categorized into three types: Nodes based techniques, Link based techniques and Path based techniques. Then there are other techniques that use meta-approaches such as.....which are based on the basic techniques. In this paper we conduct a survey of all the existing Link Prediction techniques to the best of our knowledge and perform an experimental comparison of these techniques. We use real social network data for the testing.

Index Terms—Link prediction, social networks.
