Though the multiscale graph learning techniques have enabled advanced feature extraction frameworks, we find that the classic ensemble strategy shows inferior performance while encountering the high homogeneity of the learnt representation, which is caused by the nature of existing graph pooling methods. To cope with this issue, we propose a diversified multiscale graph learning model equipped with two core ingredients: a graph self-correction mechanism to generate informative embedded graphs, and a diversity boosting regularizer to achieve a comprehensive characterization of the input graph. The proposed mechanism compensates the pooled graph with the lost information during the graph pooling process by feeding back the estimated residual graph, which serves as a plug-in component for popular graph pooling methods. Meanwhile, pooling methods enhanced with the self-correcting procedure encourage the discrepancy of node embeddings, and thus it contributes to the success of ensemble learning strategy. The proposed regularizer instead enhances the ensemble diversity at the graph-level embeddings by leveraging the interaction among individual classifiers. Extensive experiments on popular graph classification benchmarks show that the approaches lead to significant improvements over state-of-the-art graph pooling methods, and the ensemble multiscale graph learning models achieve superior enhancement.
