Hi there! My name is Pan Wangperawong. I have a Thai name in case you were wondering why my last name is so long. To pronounce it, you can think of it as Wang per a Wong, similar to Miles per a Hour (a clever mnemonic my brother, Art, came up with).
My background is in product, engineering and education. I’ve worked previously at Microsoft Research, NASA, Microsoft, Cisco and many startups, where I’ve focused on building products that combine social interactions, big data and artificial intelligence/machine learning. I’ve also taught at Dev Bootcamp (Kaplan), General Assembly, Stanford University and various institutions where I mentored students and developed curriculum for soft and technical skills to prepare students for the tech industry. I studied computer science at the University of Southern California and the University of Edinburgh.
Here are some talks I've given on AI/Machine Learning, Blockchain, Big Data, Cloud Infrastructure, Education, Product Development and other fields.
