Weak Cosmic Censorship in Holography

Recent developments have called into question the validity of the weak cosmic censorship conjecture — which roughly forbids singularities from developing outside of event horizons in generic spacetimes — in classical General Relativity. In this talk I will present evidence using holography that at least some version of weak cosmic censorship should still be valid in the classical limit of quantum gravity in AdS. In particular, I will argue that consistency of the AdS/CFT dictionary in general, and of the holographic entanglement entropy entry in particular, implies that trapped surfaces lie behind event horizons.
