Every smooth projective variety over a number field yields a Galois representation via etale cohomology, and the Weil conjecture tells that its Frobenius traces are integers. Fontaine and Mazur conjectured that Galois representations satisfying a local condition (de Rham) arise from geometry and hence have a similar finiteness property. In this talk, I will focus on de Rham local systems on algebraic varieties and explain a finiteness of Frobenius traces follows from the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture for Galois representations and the generalized Riemann Hypothesis
