Title: Quantum gravity from ordinary quantum systems


We will review the idea that certain strongly interacting quantum systems can have an alternative description as  a quantum gravity system. We will discuss somewhat complicated  models that are supposed to give rise to an Einstein-like gravity theory, as well as simpler models that capture only some aspects of gravity.
