The reconstruction and calibration of hadronic final states in the ATLAS detector at the LHC
present complex experimental challenges. For isolated pions in particular, classifying $\pi^{0}$ versus $\pi^{\pm}$
and calibrating pion energy deposits in the ATLAS calorimeters are key steps in the hadronic reconstruction process. The baseline methods for local hadronic calibration were optimized early in the lifetime of the ATLAS experiment. This publication presents a significant improvement over
existing techniques using machine learning methods that do not require the input variables to be projected onto a fixed and regular grid. Instead, Deep Sets and Graph Neural Network architectures are used to process calorimeter clusters and particle tracks as point clouds, or a collection of data
points representing a three-dimensional object in space. This note demonstrates the performance
of these new approaches as an important step towards a low-level hadronic reconstruction scheme
that fully takes advantage of deep learning to improve its performance.
