Multi-Community Detection in Signed Graphs Using Quantum Hardware

By Ehsan Zahedinejad, Daniel Crawford, Clemens Adolphs, & Jaspreet S. Oberoi
Signed graphs serve as a primary tool for modelling social networks. They can represent relationships between individuals (i.e., nodes) with the use of signed edges. Finding communities in a signed graph is of great importance in many areas, for example, targeted advertisement. We propose an algorithm to detect multiple communities in a signed graph. Our method reduces the multi-community detection problem to a quadratic binary unconstrained optimization problem and uses state-of-the-art quantum or classical optimizers to find an optimal assignment of each individual to a specific community.
