The application of holography to fundamental problems in quantum gravity has been hindered by the lack of a solvable model. However, building on work by Sachdev and Ye, Kitaev has proposed a solvable QM system as a dual to an AdS2 black hole. I will discuss the model and its possible bulk interpretation.
