The critical scaling of the large-N O(N) model in higher dimensions using the exact renormalization group equations will be discussed. Particular attention is paid to the case of d=5 where the scaling exponent of the correlation length has the value 1/3, which coincides with the scaling exponent of quantum gravity in one fewer dimensions. Convincing results show that this relation could be generalized to arbitrary number of dimensions above five. Some aspects of AdS/CFT correspondence will be also discussed.
