Embedding Formal Contexts Using Unordered Composition


Despite their simplicity, formal contexts possess a complex latent structure that can be exploited by formal context analysis (FCA). In this paper, we address the problem of representing formal contexts using neural embeddings in order to facilitate knowledge discovery tasks. We propose Bag of Attributes (BoA), a dataset agnostic approach to capture the latent structure of formal contexts into embeddings. Our approach exploits the relation between objects and attributes to generate representations in the same embedding space. Our preliminary experiments on attribute clustering on the SPECT heart dataset, and on co-authorship prediction on the ICFCA dataset, show the feasibility of BoA with promising results.
