DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Research in string theory has uncovered deep connecti
ons between strongly coupled quantum systems with chaotic dynamics and the
quantum physics of black hole spacetimes. The realization of these ideas fo
r cosmological spacetimes such as de Sitter space is much less well underst
ood. After highlighting some of the challenges for finding a quantum mechan
ical description of an accelerating universe\, we describe some recent prog
ress towards this goal in the form of a close link between the Sachdev-Ye-K
itaev model and quantum de Sitter spacetime in low dimensions.
