My name is Han Xiao (肖涵). I’m an Engineering Lead at Tencent AI Lab, the board member at LF AI Foundation, and the Chairman of the German-Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence. I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. in computer science from the Technical University of Munich in Germany. At Tencent AI, I’m leading a team on neural information retrieval, laying down the next-gen search infrastructure for a China’s everyday app: Wechat. I’d love to consider myself as an AI open-source evangelist. My Fashion-MNIST and bert-as-service were listed as the most popular AI open-source projects in 2017&18 world-widely. I also serve at the Tencent Technical Advisory Council and OSPO, fostering the open-source culture inside the company.

Before joining Tencent, I worked at Zalando in Berlin (a German online retailer) for 3.5y. I currently reside in Shenzhen and frequently travel between Shenzhen, Berlin, and Beijing.
