Abstract: 
A unitary resolution of the black hole information problem, or unitarity crisis, appears to require transfer of quantum information from black holes to their surroundings, in conflict with field-theory locality. One can both model and constrain such evolution. A possible general setting for such evolution, capturing some aspects of locality, is in a Hilbert-space network.
