Most of the talk will be about the Farrell-Jones conjecture from the point of view of an outsider. I'll try to explain what the conjecture is about, why one wants to know it, and how to prove it in some cases. The motivation for the talk is my recent work with Fujiwara and Wigglesworth where we prove this conjecture for (virtually torsion-free hyperbolic)-by-cyclic groups. If there is time I will outline the proof of this result.
