Entanglement entropy in a Quantum Field Theory is an interesting geometric observable which provides information on how degrees of freedom at different points are coupled. Thus, entanglement entropy can be used as a tool for probing the non-locality structure of theories on fuzzy spaces. I will describe how geometric entanglement entropy can be studied in a scalar field theory on a fuzzy sphere and compare the results to SYM theory in flat space, as previously obtained holographic picture.
