I found the recent work by Hayden and Harlow and Susskind very fascinating.

I have also heard talks by Scott Aaronson about this emerging connection.

In particular this idea of understanding black-hole physics via quantum error correcting codes.
(and hence expanders?).

How real is this? [...I am particularly interested since I have done a lot of studies in quantum/classical/string black-hole physics and I also work on mathematics of expanders..]

Some years from now will one be able to get opportunity/funding/faculty/post-doc positions to do research in this area?
