Title: Quantum gravity, chaos and statistical physics

Abstract: In this talk I will describe a picture which has emerged over the past few years regarding the statistical interpretation of semiclassical gravity and how this relates to wormholes, averaging and the so-called factorization puzzle. I will also briefly describe how this picture may give rise to a combinatorial description of gravity.
