Colfax-Mingo alum targets machine learning at Cambridge

To the every day homeowner, folding towels may seem an uncomplicated if not tedious task, but to 22-year-old Colfax-Mingo alum Colorado Reed it represents his future. The University of Iowa senior graduating in applied physics explains that the science of machine learning is what makes it all possible, and it is his research on the subject that has earned Reed a high honor. In a phone interview from Iowa City Wednesday, Reed said he will be studying under Professor Zedoubin Ghahramani, who is responsible for the mathematical muster behind research leading to intuitive smart phone apps, targeted marketing devices and the latest Apple Inc. Although he is wrapped up in machine learning, the wipe boards of algorithms and papers filled with mathematical patterns were a discovery at the end of a long search for Reed.
