While the emergence of bulk locality in AdS/CFT is not fully understood, progress has been made towards understanding how pieces of the bulk geometry are encoded in subregions of the CFT . Recently, Hubeny and Rangamani have proposed that a modification of the Ryu-Takayanagi entropy called the ‘causal holographic information’ (so called because extremal surfaces are replaced with causal boundaries) quantifies the minimum information needed to reconstruct certain causally defined bulk regions. I will argue that the boundary dual of the causal holographic information is a coarse-grained entropy which tracks the one-point functions in the associated boundary domain of dependence. The talk will focus on the motivation and evidence for this conjecture as well the prospects for future precision tests.
