Award Description: Two of the most important abstractions in Computer Science are graphs and point clouds. A graph abstracts relations between things: two vertices in a graph are connected by an edge if the objects associated with the vertices are related. Directed edges indicate a connection from one vertex to another. Both social networks and the web are modeled as graphs: vertices could represent people with edges between friends, or they may represent web pages with directed edges representing links. Point clouds are sets of vectors, each vector providing a list of numerical attributes. In many computer science applications, one associates a vector with each object being examined. For example, one may rate on a numerical scale different properties of a chemical, or how much a person likes movies from certain genres. This project will unify these two abstractions by translating point clouds into graphs. Each vector becomes a vertex in a graph, with the strength of the edge . . .
