I am amazed at the wisdom and knowledge that Scott has with Al (Artificial Intelligence). His years of experience, combined with his extensive Ph.D. studies, make him one of the industry’s most trusted advisors/consultants. If you are looking for a company that knows what they are doing with Al, look no further than Knowledge Reactor!
Scott is extremely knowledgeable and well established in the AI industry. He would make an excellent lead, collaborator, or consultant for your project.
Scott Gerard was a core team member and crucial design, engineering and analytics contributor to our IoT Eldercare project. His technical skills and creativity made the difference time and again. Scott’s data analytics skills are first rate, and his willingness to “dive in” and generate solutions to the project’s many practical and operational challenges led to his receiving a coveted performance award. We won’t start another IoT project without him.

Scott is an incredible problem-solver. He built the entire server-side infrastructure for our project based on a large, contextual, reactive, graph database and Kafka streaming, and automated everything for quick turn around for feedback and new requests. After deploying over 1000+ sensors in a care facility in Oregon, we worked closely together to infer Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) from the large unlabeled IoT dataset captured, using both rule-based and machine learning-based approaches. We published two academic papers describing our work and filed several patent applications based on our novel approaches.

Bugle Boy Farm runs a haunted house event every year, with a LOT of separate tasks during each performance. Some of the tasks were executed in series; others in parallel. I had to personally manage most of them for each and every group of visitors. This format was prone to producing a number of errors in any given performance.
Dr. Gerard from Knowledge Reactor wrote completely new software using a distributed set of Raspberry Pis, which substantially simplified and automated many of the tasks during each performance. I’m so glad for his help, because it improved our performances and let me enjoy the event more.

Scott quickly created a Deep Learning system for Finalysis after our original Scientist had left the company. Scott is knowledgeable about ML systems and software engineering and can recommend and perform tasks better than most envision. He is easy to work with and always willing to mentor and teach young Data Scientists / Developers. I highly recommend Scott for any ML project; the more complex, the better.
Todd Moses, CEO Finalysis
