Vita

Dr. Kai Zhou was born on 1st October 1987 in China. He received the B.Sc. degree in Physics from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2009 and his PhD degree in Physics with ‘Wu You Xun’ Honors from Tsinghua University in 2014. Afterwards he went to Goethe University Frankfurt to do postdoctoral research work at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) . Since August 2017, he is a FIAS Research Fellow focusing on Deep Learning (DL) application
research, and guides the ‘Deepthinkers’ group at FIAS as their group leader. Dr. Zhou has a very broad interest in physics and AI/DL application in different fields. Recently with his collaborators he developed a deep learning based strategy to help efficiently extracting essential properties of the very involved dynamical evolution from only final
observation, they applied it in Heavy Ion Collisions to construct an Equation-Of-State (EOS) meter which is an ultimate goal for the experiments efforts.
