Towards Foundation Models for Graph Reasoning and AI 4 Science

Michael Galkin, Research Scientist at Intel AI Lab

Abstract: Foundation models in graph learning are hard to design due to the lack of common invariances that transfer across different structures and domains. In this talk, I will give an overview of the two main tracks of my research at Intel AI: creating foundation models for knowledge graph reasoning that can run zero-shot inference on any multi-relational graphs, and foundation models for materials discovery in the AI4Science domain that capture physical properties of crystal structures and transfer to a variety of predictive and generative tasks. We will also talk about theoretical and practical challenges like scaling behavior, data scarcity, and diverse evaluation of foundation graph models.

Michael Galkin is a Research Scientist at Intel AI Lab in San Diego working on Graph Machine Learning and Geometric Deep Learning. Previously, he was a postdoc at Mila–Quebec AI Institute with Will Hamilton, Reihaneh Rabbany, and Jian Tang, focusing on many graph representation learning problems. Sometimes, Mike writes long blog posts on Medium about graph learning.
