Abstract. In the context of the Banks-Fischler-Shenker-Susskind Matrix model of M-theory, black holes and geometry are encoded in matrix degrees of freedom. I elaborate on this map by demonstrating that the relevant dynamics is realized through a system of qubits with a dense network of interactions. Using methods from quantum information theory, I compute the information scrambling time in Matrix black holes; and I present evidence that geometry is encoded in qubit entanglement entropy.
