Abstract (PDF)

Chattrakul Sombattheera

Mahasarakham University, Thailand


Dr. Sombattheera received his PhD in 2010 from University of Wollongong, Australia. He received his Master of Information Technology in 1999 from University of Sydney, and Graduate Diploma (Computer Science) in 1996 from University of Western Australia. He received his Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) in 1992 from Ramkhamhaeng University, Thailand. At present, Dr. Sombattheera teaches at Faculty of Informatics, Mahasarakham University, Thailand and leads the Multiagent, Intelligence and Simulation Laborlatory. In the last five years, he has been working on challenging projects with Defense Institute of Thailand and AVIA Sat Com Ltd in attempts to bridge the gap between theoretical research and real world problems. In addition, he also undertake non-military projects in different areas, including composite services, logistics, intelligent web, etc., which apply coalition formation concept to tackle the problems.

Jarun Ngamvirojcharoen

Jarun recently joined Sertis Corporation as a Chief Data Scientist/Vice President of Data Innovation Lab. In his role at Sertis, he is building a data science team and is looking for Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning research collaboration opportunities with universities in the Asian region. Prior to Sertis, he was a lead data scientist of Booz Allen Hamilton working in the area of fraud & ID Theft detection and predictive modeling. He has been developing a holistic framework incorporating data science, systems thinking, and design thinking for creative problem solving. He has been a guest speaker to some leading institutes in Thailand (e.g. NECTEC, Chulalongkorn University). Prior to Booz Allen, he was a Founder/CEO of a startup Crono building an Artificial Intelligence (AI) personal assistance for mobile services funded by an angel investor & National Science Foundation (NSF). He spent over 15 years in software, telecommunications, and financial services industries playing a number of different roles in management, system design, analytics, software development, and technology startup consulting. Educational highlights include MBA from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master of Science in Telecommunications from University of Pittsburgh, and Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical engineering from Chulalongkorn University. He is a Certified Professional Innovator-Practitioner-Design Thinking and a Certified Systemic Design Thinking and Facilitation.

Komes Chandavimol

(Data Science Thailand)

Komes is a Lead Data Scientist at the Data Science Lab, Thailand. This lab is part of the Data Science Community, where data professionals learn and share Data Science experience for the benefit of Data Science in Thailand. His lab is a place that academics meet practitioner and develop the practical data science products. Komes is currently lead concurrent data science projects (Proof-of-Concept) includes Market Basket Analysis, Propensity Model, Customer Segmentation, Sentimental Analysis, Real-time Steaming Analysis etc. In the US, Komes has worked with several healthcare clients to implement BI/Reporting systems. His clients include Kaiser Permanente, Cedar Sinai, University of Chicago Medical, Seattle Children Hospital, Yale health and Providence Health etc. His responsibilities not only focus on the system implementation but also the resource planning and team building. Lastly, Komes is also working on his Doctoral of Business Administration at University of Liverpool. His thesis is to improve virtual team performance by self-leadership and shared leadership. His thesis focus on action learning, which encourage team members to reflect on their thinking process as well as evaluate their actions. This action learning process is not only improve the team performance but also enhance individual productivity and self-learning as well.
