Spacetime as a quantum error-correcting code?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This essay considers an interpretation of the AdS/CFT correspondence under which the bulk and the boundary emerge from a more fundamental discrete system that realizes the structure of an erasure-protection quantum error-correcting code (QECC). I consider the extent to which this view underwrites the claim that spacetime is a QECC (as some authors have suggested), and how it fits into recent schemes of realist interpretations of dualities.
