Abstract. In the talk I will introduce a cosmology/QFT correspondence and present a holographic model for a slow-roll inflation. In particular I will express the cosmological data such as power spectra and non-gaussianitites in terms of correlation functions of a dual QFT. Finally, I will propose alternative models of inflation, where the early time dynamics involves strongly coupled gravity.
