Constructing $AdS_4$ from $3$ dimensional vector valued fields

The singlet sectors of $O(N)$ vector field theories in three dimensions have been conjectured to be dual to theories of higher spins in $AdS_4$, in their large $N$ limit. We use the bilocal description of this invariant sector to obtain a constructive description of this correspondence.
