abstract = {We give a short overview on a recently developed notion of Ricci curvature for discrete spaces. This notion relies on geodesic convexity properties of the relative entropy along geodesics in the space of probability densities, for a metric which is similar to (but different from) the 2-Wasserstein metric. The theory can be considered as a discrete counterpart to the theory of Ricci curvature for geodesic measure spaces developed by Lottâ€“Sturmâ€“Villani.},
