Abstract Goedel's Dialectica interpretation has recently gained new life as a way of getting constructive information from classical proofs. This talk gives an introduction to the transformation, describes some previous work due to Oliva and Kohlenbach and introduces some new work of Oliva and Powell. It concludes with a recap on the structure of the transformation from a more semantic perspective.
