I will review a recent proposal for a top-down approach to AdS/CFT by A. Schwarz, which has the advantage of requiring few assumptions or extraneous knowledge, and may be of benefit to information theorists interested by the connections with tensor networks.  I will also discuss ways to extend this approach from the Euclidean formalism to a real-time picture, and potential relationships with MERA.
