## Abstract

After a short review of the gauge gravity duality, we will discuss black holes. We will explain what the duality tells us about black holes as viewed from the outside. We will review some of the puzzles that arise when we try to describe the black hole interior. We will describe wormholes and their interpretation in the dual field theory as entangled states.
