In recent years, we have seen a transition toward precision calculations of nuclear properties. This progress is based on ideas and applications of effective field theory (EFT), the renaissance and new development of ab initio methods with an affordable computational cost, and the sheer availability of computational cycles. This talk reviews some of the recent developments including nuclear interactions from chiral EFT with accurate saturation properties, ab initio computations of neutron-rich calcium isotopes, and the description of vibrations in heavy nuclei with quantified theoretical uncertainties.
