Graphs are a technique to represent data with inherited structure. Despite the signi cant progress in graph kernels, existing graph kernels focus on either unlabeled or discretely labeled graphs, while efficient and expressive representation and comparison of graphs with continuous high-dimensional vector labels, remains an open research problem. We introduce a novel method, the pyramid quantized Weisfeiler-Lehman graph representation to tackle the graph comparison problem for continuous vector labeled graphs. Our algorithm considers statistics of subtree patterns based on the Weisfeiler-Lehman algorithm and uses a pyramid quantization strategy to determine a logarithmic number of discrete labelings. We evaluate our algorithm on two diff erent tasks with real datasets. Overall, as graphs are fundamental mathematical objects and regularization methods are used to control ill-pose problems the proposed algorithm is potentially applicable to a wide range of domains.
