Charin Polpanumas / Data Scientist at BridgeAsia
I am a data scientist working to optimize the healthcare industry: to make it spend less and provide equal or better care for everyone. Previously, I worked for Southeast Asia's largest e-commerce specialized in performance marketing. My models include customer value estimation, fraud detection, automated bidding and budget allocation. Collectively, they are saving multi-million USD a year. I also currently hold the state-of-the-art performance for text classification in Thai (thai2vec and pyThaiNLP). I did my undergraduate studies in economics at a university in Japan and pursued my masters in marketing at Peking University. In my free time, I write about interesting topics such as online prostitution scene in Bangkok and classifying ladyboys with deep learning. My life goal is to provide everyone with a skillset to make decisions based on evidences rather than prejudices, already starting with a bi-monthly meetup Data Science BKK and an open-source data science training Datatouille.org.
