I will describe a procedure for reconstructing the metric of a general holographic spacetime (up to an overall conformal factor) from distinguished spatial slices - “light-cone cuts” - of the conformal boundary. This reconstruction can be applied to bulk points in causal contact with the boundary. I will also discuss a prescription for obtaining the light-cone cuts from divergences of correlators in the dual field theory.
