Reducts of the Generic Ordered Graph

Loosely speaking, a reduct of a structure $M$ is a less detailed version of $M$ obtained from $M$ be discarding information. The reducts of various structures have been classified; the two best know examples are the random graph and $(\mathbb{Q},<)$. In this talk, I will quickly describe the reducts of these two structures before going on to discuss the paper by Bodirsky, Pinsker and Pongracz in which they determine the reducts of the generic ordered graph.
