The AdS/CFT correspondence is a concrete instance of
holographic duality, where a bulk theory of quantum gravity in d+1
dimensions can emerge from a conformal field theory (CFT) in d
dimensions. In particular, we expect the semi-classical spacetime of
d+1 dimensions to emerge from the entanglement patterns of certain
quantum states in the CFT. Therefore, it is crucial to understand what
kind of states encode such spacetime geometries and how to explicitly
reconstruct these geometries from quantum entanglement. In this talk,
