Zhao Chen received his B.A. in physics and mathematics from Harvard University in 2011, and is expected to receive his Ph.D. in physics with a minor in statistics from Stanford University in 2017. His graduate work with large X-ray imaging experiments has led to articles in top physics journals, but also fanned his interest in big data. His first foray into deep learning and AI came from the machine learning course at Stanford, where he won a best project award for his work in segmenting glioblastoma brain tumors from MRI scans. Since then, he has worked on various deep learning projects that range from computer vision techniques for video game AI to deep RNNs for Twitter analytics. He also enjoyed an internship with the Deep Learning Applied Research group at NVIDIA, where he built deep computer vision models to help cars learn to see. He is currently looking forward to receiving his degree and dedicating his time fully to the exciting field of AI and machine learning research.
