Hi! I’m Phongpanot Phairatwetchaphan (pong-pa-nod; pai-rad-wed-cha-pan), and my nickname is Best. I’m currently a 20-year old college student 👨🏻‍💻 studying in School of Communication Arts, Broadcasting major at Bangkok University and living in Ang Thong, Thailand. I’m interested in so many things; some of these are technology, networking, environment, mass transit and transportation, psychology, music, travel, radio and TV, gaming, city designing…….. and much more.

I’ve been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I’ve also tested allergic to shrimp 🦐 and crab 🦞.

Some of my work & projects.

Co-host and contributor of Mozilla’s Common Voice project. Common Voice allows ANYONE to collect sentences and donate their own voices to create datasets, which can then be used to help train AI systems. Possible use cases include voice typing, automatic captioning, and more, while anyone can use and contribute to the dataset for free.

I became a co-host of OpenTech Common Voice Day (Sep 2021) and also as a guest speaker & behind the scenes team as shown in this image. The slide isn’t related to me.

English to Thai translator in many software projects, particularly open-source projects such as PeerTube and Mastodon.

I’ve also become a volunteer in the OpenTech Thailand community, which is the community for enthusiasts & contributors of free & open-source software and AI. As a volunteer, I also became a guest speaker regarding various aspects of technology. One of the team’s volunteers have also become a guest speaker about AI for the UNESCO’s project!

Identification spots for FM 101.75 MHz (Satri Angthong School Radio Station, which is where I used to study and work during my high school years.)

ThaiTube.in.th, a now defunct non-profit video sharing website based on PeerTube.
