Abstract: The classification of graph-structured data has become increasingly crucial in many disciplines. It has been observed that the implicit or explicit hierarchical community structures preserved in realworld graphs could be useful for downstream classification applications. A straightforward way to leverage the hierarchical structures is to make use of pooling algorithm to cluster nodes into fixed groups, and shrink the input graph layer by layer to learn the pooled graphs. However, the pool shrinking discards graph details to make it hard to distinguish two non-isomorphic graphs, and the fixed clustering ignores the inherent multiple characteristics of nodes. To compensate the shrinking loss and learn the various nodes’ characteristics, we propose the multi-channel graph neural networks (MuchGNN). Motivated by the underlying mechanisms developed in convolutional neural networks, we define the tailored graph convolutions to learn a series of graph channels at each layer, and shrink the graphs hierarchically to encode the pooled structures. Experimental results on real-world datasets demonstrate the superiority of MuchGNN over the state-of-the-art methods.
