The author discusses the connection between the problems of interpolation and multiplicity estimates in two distinct settings, presented in the common framework of compactifications of commutative algebraic groups. In the former, the multiplicity is imposed at a single very general point of a smooth projective variety, while in the latter the conditions are imposed on an asymptotically growing set of points of the group. Some conjectures and new results are given in both cases.
