"A semiparametric extension of the stochastic block model for longitudinal networks"

De 15h à 16h15, en salle 08 à l'ENSAE : 3 avenue Pierre Larousse à Malakoff (Tram T3: "Porte de Vanves" ou Métro 13 : "Porte de Vanves" ou "Malakoff Plateau de Vanves")

 To model recurrent interaction events in continuous time, we propose an extension of the stochastic block model where each individual belongs to a latent group and interactions between two individuals follow a conditional inhomogeneous Poisson process whose intensity is driven by the individuals' latent groups. The model is shown to be identifiable and an estimation procedure is proposed based on a semiparametric variational expectation-maximization algorithm. Two versions of the method are developed, using either a nonparametric histogram approach (with an adaptive choice of the partition size) or kernel intensity estimators. The number of latent groups can be selected by an integrated classification likelihood criterion. Finally, we demonstrate the performance of our procedure on synthetic experiments and the analysis of several real datasets illustrates the utility of our approach.
