Open-closed (little)string duality and Chern-Simons-Bethe/gauge correspondence

In the past 30+ years two approaches to quantum groups, their realizations in quantum integrable systems and quantum gauge theories have been proposed, one of them recently revived by K.Costello.
In this talk we shall relate these approaches using string theory. Based on the joint work with Mina Aganagic and Samson Shatashvili
