David Rose, MIT Lecturer, author + serial entrepreneur
David Rose, MIT lecturer, inventor, and five-time entrepreneur, draws on culture, design, travel, and music to envision future products and businesses sparked by the next generation of technology. His last book, Enchanted Objects, is the definitive book on designing the Internet of Things. David wrote the seminal patent on photo sharing, founded an AI company focused on computer vision, and was VP of Vision Technology at Warby Parker. He is known for translating complex technologies into delightfully intuitive new products and consulting with businesses on thriving during digital disruption.
David’s work has been featured at the New York Museum of Modern Art, covered in The New York Times, WIRED, and The Economist, and parodied on The Colbert Report. His home was featured in a New York Times video “The Internet of Things” about inventions that incorporate magic into everyday objects: a Google Earth coffee table that responds to gesture, Skype cabinetry in the living room, and a doorbell reminiscent of Mrs. Weasley’s clock that rings when a family member is on their way home. He even got John Stewart to belly laugh when he was a guest on The Daily Show!
