  • The prevalence of deep learning has inspired innovations in numerous research fields including community detection, a cornerstone in the advancement of complex networks. We propose a novel community detection algorithm called the Deep auto-encoded clustering algorithm (DAC), in which unsupervised and sparse single autoencoders are trained and piled up one after another to embed key community information in a lowerdimensional representation, such that it can be handled easier by clustering strategies. Extensive comparison tests undertaken on synthetic and real world networks reveal two advantages of the proposed algorithm: on the one hand, DAC shows higher precision than thek-means community detection method benefiting from the integration of sparsity constraints. On the other hand, DAC runs much faster than the spectral community detection algorithm based on the circumvention of the time-consuming eigenvalue decomposition procedure.
