Message passing neural network (MPNN) has recently emerged as a successful framework by achieving state-of-the-art performances on many graph-based learning tasks. MPNN has also recently been extended to multi-relational graphs (each edge is labelled), and hypergraphs (each edge can connect any number of vertices). However, in real-world datasets involving text and knowledge, relationships are much more complex in which hyperedges can be multi-relational, recursive, and ordered. Such structures present several unique challenges because it is not clear how to adapt MPNN to variable-sized hyperedges in them.
In this work, we first unify exisiting MPNNs on different structures into G-MPNN (Generalised MPNN) framework. Motivated by real-world datasets, we then propose a novel extension of the framework, MPNN-R (MPNN-Recursive) to handle recursively-structured data. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed G-MPNN and MPNN-R.
