Employing the conjectured duality between higher-spin theories on AdS and free CFTs, we extract the quartic self-interaction of the bulk scalar from the conformal block expansion of the dual CFT correlator. To this end, we demonstrate techniques to establish conformal partial wave expansions of four-point Witten diagrams. Implications for the (non-)locality of the quartic interaction are briefly discussed.
