Holography, black holes and the nature of spacetime
 
Abstract: Understanding the microscopic nature of spacetime is one of the central questions in theoretical physics.  In this talk, I will review a development in string theory  known as the holographic principle, The holographic principle points to an amazing connection  between spacetime, quantum entanglement and black holes. This connection might hold the key to uncovering the ultimate nature of spacetime.
