In my talk I discussed three recent advances in loop quantum cosmology: 1) Path integral formulation and its WKB approximation; 2) Cosmological spin foams and lessons they provide; and 3) Probability of a slow roll inflationary phase compatible with the 7 year WMAP data. In addition to presenting an overview, this discussion also provides the necessary background for a number of talks in the parallel sessions.
