Louis Rosenberg (born May 24, 1969) is a technologist, prolific inventor, entrepreneur, and writer. He attended Stanford University, where he earned his bachelors, masters, and PhD degrees. His doctoral work focused on robotics, virtual reality, and augmented reality, and resulted in the Virtual fixtures system for the U.S. Air Force, the first immersive Augmented Reality system ever built (1992). Rosenberg then founded a number of successful technology companies, including the early VR company Immersion Corporation which went public in 1999 (NASDAQ: IMMR), the 3D digitizer company Microscribe which was used in the making of Shrek, Ice Age, and Titanic, and the mobile / augmented reality company Outland Research. Rosenberg also worked as a tenured professor at California Polytechnic State University. In 2014, he founded Unanimous A.I., an artificial intelligence company that enables human groups to amplify their collective brainpower by forming real-time online swarms. Unanimous AI became well known in 2016 when its Artificial Swarm Intelligence technology called "UNU" made a series of accurate predictions about world events, including predicting the 2016 Academy Awards, the 2016 Kentucky Derby, the 2016 Super Bowl, and the rise of Donald Trump.
Rosenberg is a vegan, a supporter of animal rights, and has helped to develop the first VR surgical simulators that reduced the use of animals in medical training. He is also dyslexic and has attributed some of his success as a technologist to this trait.
In 1992, Louis Rosenberg developed the first immersive Augmented Reality systems ever built, called Virtual fixtures, while working at the U.S. Air Force Armstrong Labs, and published the first study of how an AR system can enhance human performance. Rosenberg's related work at Stanford University in the early 90's, offered the first proof that virtual overlays, when registered and presented over a user's direct view of the real physical world, could significantly enhance human performance.
In 1993, Rosenberg founded the virtual reality company, Immersion Corporation which went public in 1999 (NASDAQ: IMMR) and remains a public company today. He served as the company's CEO until 2000. Rosenberg also founded Microscribe, a company that developed the first desktop 3D digitizer - a system that allows animators to digitize physical objects into 3D computer models. The Microscribe 3D digitizer was used in the production of many major feature films including Shrek, Ice Age, Bugs Life, and Titanic. Rosenberg also founded Outland Research, a company specializing in advanced methods of human-computer interaction. In 2001, Google purchased Outland Research technologies, along with its patents.
In 2014, he founded Unanimous A.I., an artificial intelligence company that amplifies the intelligence of human groups by enabling networks of online users to form a form real-time "hive minds" modeled after natural swarms. Unanimous AI became well known in 2016 when its swarm-based technology was used to made a series of accurate predictions about world events, including predicting the 2016 Academy Awards, the 2016 Kentucky Derby, the 2016 Super Bowl, and the rise of Donald Trump.
As a professor at California State University (CalPoly), Rosenberg developed educational technologies, including methods for using wearable cameras and time-shifted video to enhance education, perception, and learning. Over the length of his career, Rosenberg has been awarded over 350 patents.
In 2008, Rosenberg attended the Professional Program in Screenwriting at UCLA film school. In 2009, Rosenberg wrote the short film Lab Rats which won several awards including a Moondance Film Festival the award for best screenplay. The film, directed by Sam Washington, has subsequently been turned into a webseries by Frostbite Pictures. In 2011, Rosenberg sold a screenplay entitled Paper Trail to Sidney Kimmel Entertainment. In 2012, Rosenberg sold a screenplay entitled Mindplay to Echo Lake Entertainment.
In 2008, Rosenberg authored his first graphic novel entitled UPGRADE, with artwork by Stan Timmons. A satirical take on transhumanism, the book is set in the year 2048, when life is lived entirely online, nobody ever leaving the confines of their tiny apartments, supplies brought to them by automated delivery drones. The protagonist, Avery J. Mankin, is the perfect citizen of this virtual society, until he's unfairly accused of a crime, exiled from the system, and must learn to live in the real world for the first time. A screenplay based on the book won Best Scif-Fi Screenplay at Shriekfest and won the Grand Prize of the Cinestory Screenwriting Awards.
Rosenberg then released the graphic novel EONS in 2013 with artwork by Kyle La Fever. The book recounts the story of eight test subjects who are frozen in a tiny pod and shot into orbit for a 60-day test of a military survival system. But when they land back on Earth and open the hatch, they find that instead of waking up 60 days later, 200,000 years have passed. The Earth is pristine and there are no traces of humanity anywhere. They have no choice but rebuild.
In 2013, Rosenberg authored the children's book Seeking Marlo, with co-writer Joe Rosenbaum, and artwork by illustrator Bill Maus. The book is aimed at helping kids deal with the loss when a good friend moves away.
Rosenberg released the dystopian graphic novel Monkey Room in 2014. The book is a cautionary tale about the invention and deployment of a mobile app that creates a sentient global consciousness by linking together millions of users through their phones, tablets, and computers. With moody artwork by Graeme Howard, the book explores the dark side of artificial intelligence, focusing on a novel technology known as Collaborative intelligence, where one mind is built from many. In 2013, a screenplay version of Monkey Room was selected by the Academy of Motion Pictures from over 7000 scripts to as one of 50 contenders for a Nichol's Fellowship.
