A graph neural network (GNN) is one of successful methods for handling tasks on a graph data structure, e.g. node embedding, link prediction and node classification. GNNs focus on a graph data structure that must aggregate messages on nodes in the graph to retain a graph-structured information in new node’s message and proceed tasks on a graph. One of modifications on the propagation step in GNNs by adopting attention mechanism is a graph attention network (GAT). Applying this modification to signed graphs generated by sociological theories is called signed graph attention network (SiGAT). In this research, we utilize SiGAT and create novel graphs using graph characters to assess the performance of SiGAT models embedded in nodes across various characteristic graphs. The primary focus of our study was linked prediction, which aligns with the task employed in the previous research on SiGAT. We propose a method using graph characteristics to improve the time spent on the learning process in SiGAT.


Keywords –Graph neural network, graph attention network, signed graph attention network, graph characteristics, graph theory.
