Title: In the footsteps of Harald Bohr and Børge Jessen - searching for randomness in the Riemann zeta function

Abstract:  We consider some probabilistic aspects of the Riemann zeta function. In particular, we try to sketch some surprising connections between the random behaviour of the zeta function on the critical line and the notion of GMC (Gaussian multiplicative chaos), which appears, e.g., in Liouville quantum gravity.
