Manipulative AI

You think targeted marketing can manipulate users and populations? Just wait.

Imagine chatbots powered by LLMs at scale. We’ll see chatbots trained to be the best salesperson, negotiator, and manipulator you’ve ever encountered.

All this and more in my conversation with Louis Rosenberg.

Dr. Louis Rosenberg is a longtime technologist in the fields of augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. His work began over thirty years ago in labs at Stanford and NASA. In 1992 he developed the first mixed reality system at Air Force Research Laboratory. In 1993 he founded the early VR company Immersion Corporation which he brought public on NASDAQ. In 2004 he founded Outland Research to develop AR technology that was acquired by Google in 2011. And in 2014 he founded Unanimous AI to amplify the intelligence of human groups using the biological principle of Swarm Intelligence. Rosenberg received his PhD from Stanford University, was a tenured professor at California State University, and has been awarded over 300 patents for VR, AR, and AI technologies.
