Summary: Data-driven methods serve an increasingly important role in dis- covering geometric, structural, and semantic relationships between shapes. We provide an overview of the main concepts and components of these methods, as well as discuss their application to classification, segmentation, matching, reconstruction, modeling and exploration, as well as scene analysis and synthesis. We finally discuss ideas that can inspire future research in data-driven shape analysis and processing.
