Reed Coke

Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

Reed Coke

Reed Coke joined EAM.ai out of a sincere interest in applying machine learning, especially natural language processing, to real problems in specialized domains. Between his undergraduate studies in linguistics at Swarthmore College and his graduate work in computer science at the University of Michigan, he has developed a deep interest in taking a complex problem, delving into the heart of what makes it unique, and customizing techniques to best fit the situation. Reed strongly believes that artificial intelligence is not yet a one-size-fits-all solution and is passionate about finding the best solution possible rather than applying his favorite “hammer”. He has experience applying machine learning to many specialized domains including tax, finance, and medicine. He also has a background implementing natural language processing solutions in languages other than English.

In the past, Reed has worked at or alongside large companies as a natural language processing and machine learning expert including Amazon.com, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and IBM. He has also been involved with a number of startups, such as OJO Labs and EAM.ai itself, on their data science teams. When he is not designing machine learning systems, he teaches at several private and public schools in Austin, Texas in his capacity as Principle Learning Architect for Hello World Tech Studio. At Hello World, Reed designs and teaches classes in python fundamentals and Unity/C#, as well as more advanced classes about artificial intelligence and web scraping to students in grades 3-10.

Reed brings his ample teaching experience to bear in his work at EAM.ai, making sure to work with clients to help them fully understand the scope of their custom solutions. His goal is to empower clients with machine learning systems and he believes that simply handing over a black box falls short of this mission. Often, correctly applying a system can be just as difficult as creating it and it is paramount to Reed that this is not a challenge for clients of EAM.ai.
