The increasing dimensionality of data in the modern computing age presents new challenges and opportunities to the field of signal and data processing.  Here I will present some of the results we obtained through the use of heuristics statistical mechanics as well as rigorous methods for reconstructing a signal from a minimal number of generalized linear measurements, concentrating in particular to the phase retrieval problem. I shall discuss in particular the statistical and computational transitions, as well as the role of structured priors such as the one played by neutral networks.
