Title: 
Semi-classical unitarity in quantum gravity
Abstract: 

Some of the interesting conceptual questions in quantum gravity come from the discrepancy between naive semi-classical expectations, like information loss or firewalls, and their possible quantum resolutions. Useful models of quantum gravity should therefore permit to discuss both, the ultra-quantum and the semi-classical limit. I show that specific higher-spin quantum gravity models in three dimensions appear to have all the desired properties.
