Nag Memorial Lecture 2015 - String Theory and the Gauge Gravity Correspondence

Video: 
Abstract: 
I will explain what a quantum theory of gravity is and why we need one. I then proceed to describe the satisfactory construction of one specially symmetric quantum theory of gravity. The quantization I describe is simply the gauge gravity (or AdS/CFT) correspondence of string theory.
