Geometric streaming algorithms aim to find approximation for geometric optimization problems over a point stream in R^d, using small space. There has been flourish research on the low dimensional case (where typically d = O(1)), while the case of high dimension is much less understood.
In this talk, we will discuss recent advances on geometric streaming algorithms, particularly in high dimension. Besides summarizing the results, we will focus on introducing the techniques developed around this line of research, including geometric hashing and new regimes of dimensionality reduction.
We will conclude with future directions and open questions.
