Leadership Team

Ashok Reddy
Chief Executive Officer
Ashok Reddy
Chief Executive Officer

Ashok Reddy, as the CEO of KX, applies his wide-ranging experience with Fortune 500 companies, leading banks and firms worldwide to foster a better understanding and use of AI systems. His main focus rests on the often overlooked, yet fundamental, concept of temporal reasoning in AI, i.e., the system’s ability to understand the relationships between events over time.

Ashok recognizes that the current design of many AI systems does not fully harness the potential of time-dependent data. He advocates for AI’s broader problem-solving and decision-making capacities by integrating temporal reasoning, thereby equipping these systems to tackle dynamic real-world scenarios more efficiently.

In the world of AI, Ashok emphasizes not just the technology itself but also its symbiotic relationship with humans. He believes AI is meant to augment human capabilities, not replace them, and champions a future where AI’s analytical skills and humans’ intuitive understanding work in harmony.

Ashok Reddy is dedicated to making a tangible difference in the AI field. He seeks to enhance AI’s capacity through temporal reasoning and is passionate about fostering a more collaborative future between humans and AI, where each entity benefits from the other’s strengths.
