Making accurate predictions for strongly correlated fermions is a long-standing theoretical challenge. A new approach is being developed since 10 years. All connected Feynman diagrams are sampled efficiently up to a certain order N_max using diagrammatic Monte Carlo algorithms. Convergence of the diagrammatic series for N_max --> infinity was observed in several interesting situations for fermions on a lattice or frustrated spins. I will mainly consider a continuous-space model, where the series diverges strongly (the convergence radius is zero), and there is no small parameter in the strongly correlated regime. Nevertheless, we report accurate results by resumming the series using a conformal-Borel transformation that incorporates the large-order behavior and the analytic structure in the Borel plane, which we obtain by the instanton approach [1]. The specific model we consider is the unitary Fermi gas, a model of non-relativistic fermions in 3 space dimensions. We compare with ultracold-atom experimental data for the equation of state [2] and the contact parameter [3].
