The quantum fate of black hole horizons

I will discuss the possibility that in the semiclassical gravity, the black hole horizon is non-perturbatively replaced by a tiny throat, whose parameters make it a perfect mimicker of a classical black hole. Based on work with Clément Berthiere and Sergey Solodukhin (PLB; arXiv: 1712.09914 [hep-th]).
