I will speak about an unexpected correspondence between a
beautiful theory, due to Lovasz, about homomorphisms and graph limits
and a popular heuristic for the graph isomorphism problem known as the
Weisfeiler-Leman algorithm. I will also relate this to graph kernels
in machine learning. Indeed, the context of this work is to desgin and
understand similarity measures between graphs and discrete structures.
