The structure functions measured in deep-inelastic scattering are related to the entropy of entanglement between the region probed by the virtual photon and the rest of the hadron. This opens new possibilities for experimental and theoretical studies using the Electron Ion Collider. The real-time evolution of the final state in deep-inelastic scattering can be addressed with quantum simulations using the duality between high energy QCD and the Heisenberg spin chain.
