A holographer's view of 3D higher spin gravity

A handful of recent results in 3D higher spin gravity have led to a sharpened AdS/CFT correspondence with families of higher spin-symmetric CFTs. I will present some of these developments -- among them, the exact matching of correlation functions at finite and zero temperature, and the construction and improved understanding of higher spin black holes -- in the holographic context, alongside musings about the future of higher spin holography.
