I will explain the relation between the Hochschild cohomology of a scheme and its "non-commutative deformations'' using associated presheaves and abelian categories. Along the way, I will discuss a cohomology comparison theorem for prestacks which clarifies certain aspects of Gerstenhaber and Schack's original cohomology comparison theorem for presheaves.
