I discuss my attempt to reconcile general relativity with quantum theory, i.e. to come up with a quantum theory of gravity. I will give some background on path integrals and running couplings in quantum field theory, and I will explain how these ideas fit into my approach to solve quantum gravity numerically on the computer. I will present numerical results suggesting that we are on the right track.
