I will describe significant progress towards proving a conjecture of Bruinier-Yang concerning intersection of CM points and special divisors on Shimura varieties of orthogonal type. The conjecture is a vast generalization of the theorem of Gross-Zagier on singular moduli. This is joint work with Andreatta (Milano), Howard (Boston College) and Madapusi-Pera (Harvard).
