Correlation functions in the gauge-gravity correspondence (AdS/CFT) are dual to scattering amplitudes in anti-de Sitter space (AdS). In this talk, I will describe how techniques that were recently developed to study scattering amplitudes in flat space can be generalized to AdS leading to a new and efficient method of computing correlation functions in AdS/CFT.
