discretization, statistical averaging and renormalization. Here we implement the deep neural network scheme into the AdS/CFT correspondence, a renowned quantum gravity formulation. The neural network is identified with the bulk gravity spacetime, and the input data such as lattice QCD data as for the boundary QFT will automatically let the bulk metric "emerge", and with the emergent metric we can calculate other QCD observables such as Wilson loops. We discuss possible relation between quantum gravity and deep learning, also from

the viewpoint of solving inverse problems, which deep learning is generically good at. ]]>

The award named after Dr. Seitaro Nakamura (1913-2007), who had produced substantial researches on theoretical particle physics particlularly on two-meson and beta decay, was established in 2006 in order to encourage yound researchers for their future endeavors in particle physics and the related field.

The research paper of the award: "Generalized framework for testing gravity with gravitational-wave propagation. I. Formulation"

（Phys. Rev. D 97, 104037 (2018)）

The awarding ceremony is scheduled on March 14-17th, 2019, at the 74th annual meetings of the Physical Society of Japan (JPS).

]]>They point to a deficit of decays mediated by a $b\rightarrow s \mu\mu$ transition, with respect to those mediated by a $b\rightarrow s ee$ transition. It is especially intriguing since several other observables in $b\rightarrow s \mu\mu$ decays show discrepancies with respect to their Standard Model predictions, and all these anomalies point to a consistent New Physics interpretation. I will give an overview of these various anomalies and their implications, and discuss the experimental challenges of their measurements, focusing especially on the LHCb measurement of $R_{K}$. I will also present what are the future plans, mainly at LHCb, to tackle these anomalies and understand their origin.

]]>The film elegantly illustrate the mission of KMI, the world leading researches that we pursue, the synergy between theories and experiments, and the collaboration beyond the border, all of which are the unique signatures of KMI.

Started in March 2018, our members, both theorists and experimentalists, were actively involved in this project in order to create an appealing film. The three-days film shooting took place in May 2018 where we captured a number of beautiful scenes.

After a brief review of recent developments in our understanding of dualities in 2+1 dimensions, I'll describe our progress towards using these novel dualities to gain new insights into 3 + 1 dimensional physics. In particular, I'll show that the strong-weak coupling duality of maximally supersymmetric gauge theories in 3+1 dimensions can be derived from a well known 2 + 1 dimensional duality.
