Representation leaning on networks aims to embed networks into a low-dimensional vector space, which is useful in many tasks such as node classification, network clustering, link prediction and recommendation. In reality, most real-life networks constantly evolve over time with various kinds of changes to the network structure, e.g., creation and deletion of edges. However, existing network embedding methods learn the representation vectors for nodes in a static manner, which are not suitable for dynamic network embedding. In this paper, we propose a dynamic network embedding approach for large-scale networks. The method incrementally updates the embeddings by considering the changes of the network structures and is able to dynamically learn the embedding for networks with millions of nodes within a few seconds. Extensive experimental results on three real large-scale networks demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of our proposed methods.
