Abstract : The increasing use of social and sensor networks generates a large quantity of data that can be represented as complex graphs. There are many tasks from information analysis, to prediction and retrieval one can imagine on those data where relation between graph nodes should be informative. In this thesis, we proposed different models for three different tasks: - Graph node classification - Relational time series forecasting - Collaborative filtering. All the proposed models use the representation learning framework in its deterministic or Gaussian variant. First, we proposed two algorithms for the heterogeneous graph labeling task, one using deterministic representations and the other one Gaussian representations. Contrary to other state of the art models, our solution is able to learn edge weights when learning simultaneously the representations and the classifiers. Second, we proposed an algorithm for relational time series forecasting where the observations are not only correlated inside each series, but also across the different series. We use Gaussian representations in this contribution. This was an opportunity to see in which way using Gaussian representations instead of deterministic ones was profitable. At last, we apply the Gaussian representation learning approach to the collaborative filtering task. This is a preliminary work to see if the properties of Gaussian representations found on the two previous tasks were also verified for the ranking one. The goal of this work was to then generalize the approach to more relational data and not only bipartite graphs between users and items.
