Gromov asked whether every one-ended hyperbolic group contains a surface subgroup. I'll explain this question and sketch the proof that a random group (an example of a one-ended hyperbolic group) contains a surface subgroup. I'll give all necessary background and motivation on random groups. This is joint work with Danny Calegari.
