Previously, Bravyi, Gosset and Konig (2018) showed a separation between constant depth quantum circuits and constant depth classical circuits. We find a related problem which separates shallow classical and quantum circuits even if the classical circuit has unbounded fan-in AND gates. We will also show average-case hardness for the new problem.
