Professional Profile

My name is Thong Pham, a full-stack software developer. Currently, I am pursuing Master's Degree in Computer Science specializing in Artificial Intelligence at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and had 3 years of experience in FPT Telecom as a Technical Consultant. With this role, I supported sales teams on technical aspects such as network system, database to sell our products. After working in network field for few years, I saw many current problems in my society that I thought we could use software to solve it. So I decided to study abroad in the US.

I wrote my first hello world program in C++. Then, I switched to Java and did some applications such as Book Library Manager, Caro game... After that, I began to learn web application myself. My first web app written in Java allows my friends upload, listen and share their music and images with others. Right now, I focus on web development and its frameworks. I am also interested in AI and Machine Learning and try to apply it to solve current problems. That's why I learned Python and love it immediately due to its simplicity and power.

Researches

The Naive Bayes Classifier and Its Applications in Document Classification

Document classification aims to categorize a given document into predetermined categories based on the content of the document. The purpose of this research is to emphasize the importance of the Naive Bayes classifier in terms of its applications in document classification.

Neural Networks for Image Recognition

Image Recognition has become one of the most important research fiels recently. In this research, I will describe how to develop an artificial neural network which is able to help computers understand an image.
