CEO & Chief Scientist

Louis Rosenberg, PhD is a computer scientist (h-index 132), entrepreneur, and author in the fields of artificial intelligence, mixed reality, haptics, and swarm intelligence. He earned his PhD from Stanford, has been awarded over 300 patents for VR, AR, and AI technologies, and founded a number of successful companies including Unanimous AI, Immersion Corporation, Microscribe 3D, and Outland Research.

He began his career at Air Force Research Laboratory where he pioneered the field of mixed reality by developing the Virtual Fixtures platform, the first spatial computing system to allow users to interact with a mixed reality of real and virtual objects.

Rosenberg then founded the early VR company Immersion Corp (1993) and brought the company public in 1999 (Nasdaq: IMMR). Immersion pioneered many technologies from the first VR simulators for medical schools to the first haptic mice and haptic GUIs and haptic webpages.

Rosenberg also founded Microscribe (1996), maker of early 3D digitizers used in the production of video games, virtual worlds, and feature films. The Microscribe digitizer was used in the creation of  major films such as Shrek, Ice Age, Starship Troopers, and Bugs Life (acquired in 2009)

Rosenberg also founded Outland Research in 2004, a developer of augmented reality and mobile media technologies (acquired in 2011).

Rosenberg was also a Professor at California State University (Cal Poly) teaching engineering, design, ed-tech, and entrepreneurship.

In 2014, Rosenberg founded Unanimous AI to pursue the concept of Collective Superintelligence (i.e., amplifying the intelligence of networked human groups using AI modeled on the biological principle of Swarm Intelligence).  The idea panned out, resulting in Swarm AI, an award-winning technology used by a wide range of organizations from Fortune 500 corporations to the United Nations and the US Air Force.

In 2023, Unanimous AI unveiled their next generation technology called Conversational Swarm Intelligence (CSI) which enables large human group to amplify their intelligence through conversational deliberations. This resulted in the creation of Thinkscape a pioneering platform in the fields of collaboration, communication, and collective intelligence.

Rosenberg’s new book entitled, Our Next Reality was published by Hachette in March 2024 about the future of AI and immersive media.
