Description
Graph neural networks, a powerful deep learning tool to model graph-structured data, have demonstrated remarkable performance on numerous graph learning tasks. To address the data noise and data scarcity issues in deep graph learning, the research on graph data augmentation has intensified lately. However, conventional data augmentation methods can hardly handle graph-structured data which is defined in non-Euclidean space with multi-modality. In this survey, we formally formulate the problem of graph data augmentation and further review the representative techniques and their applications in different deep graph learning problems. Specifically, we first propose a taxonomy for graph data augmentation techniques and then provide a structured review by categorizing the related work based on the augmented information modalities. Moreover, we summarize the applications of graph data augmentation in two representative problems in data-centric deep graph learning: (1) reliable graph learning which focuses on enhancing the utility of input graph as well as the model capacity via graph data augmentation; and (2) low-resource graph learning which targets on enlarging the labeled training data scale through graph data augmentation. For each problem, we also provide a hierarchical problem taxonomy and review the existing literature related to graph data augmentation. Finally, we point out promising research directions and the challenges in future research.
