We review recent versions of the information paradox, framed in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. We describe how they can be resolved using "state dependent" bulk to boundary maps for the black hole interior in AdS/CFT. We argue that this feature is necessary not only for single sided black holes but also for the eternal black hole.

We resolve some potential ambiguities in this map. We extend this construction of the black hole interior to entangled systems and show how a version of the ER=EPR conjecture emerges naturally in this process. Finally, we comment on the possible semi-classical origins of state-dependence.
