Anabelian geometry asks how much we can say about a variety from its fundamental group. In 1997 Shinichi Mochizuki, using p-adic hodge theory, proved a fundamental anabelian result for the case of p-adic fields. In my talk I will discuss representation theoretical data which can be reconstructed from an absolute Galois group of a field, and also types of representations that cannot be constructed solely from a Galois group. I will also sketch how these types of ideas can potentially give many new results about p-adic Galois representations.
