    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 28/04/2017

Sam founded a women's group for entrepreneurs and professionals and also administers various Facebook groups including Bangkok Foodies and Phuket Foodies where food lovers go to for restaurant recommendations, promotions and honest reviews. This earns herself a player position in Bangkok's dining scene. Moreover, she was behind the success of VIVIN, her husband's fine food specialist grocer, which recently opened a mini boutique in Gourmet Market at The EmQuartier. On top of it all, she manages to find time to contribute as a freelance writer for various English-language publications. My, that's a lot.

    The AI game

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 28/06/2019

    » Arthit Suriyawongkul has got a pretty impressive list of achievements that seems to destine him to be an AI expert. An alumni of Thammasat Univeristy, he got his Bachelor of Science in IT then went on to study Cognitive Science and Natural Technology at the University of Edinburgh. He returned to Thailand after the 2006 coup and was one of the people who lent his voice to help protest the Computer-Related Crime Act of 2007. He also got a Masters degree for Anthropology from his alma mater. Now, he is the AI Research Engineering Manager at Wisesight and is one of the people that helped develop a new social media analytic tool called "Social Seeing". With his degree and vast experience in IT, as well as being well-versed in all things AI, we didn't just talk to him about the new software he helped develop. We also talked about privacy in the social media stage and if it's at all possible that we'll be slaves to our AI overlords in the next few years or so.
