Two different branches of theoretical physics, string theory and quantum information theory (QIT), share many of the same features, allowing knowledge on one side to provide new insights on the other. In particular the matching of the classification of stringy black holes and the classification of four-qubit entanglement provides a falsifiable prediction in the field of QIT.
