Steven Rosenberg is currently senior director of operations of Carnegie Mellon University's Silicon Valley campus. He was previously the associate director of the campus, as well as associate director for planning and technology incubation, Disaster Management Initiative, and a visiting scientist in the Cylab Mobility Research Center.

Before coming to Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley Rosenberg worked for many years at HP Labs, most recently as associate director in the technology transfer office, where he was responsible for developing technology incubations. At HP Labs he led the development of a novel cloud-based service, new computer input devices, enterprise workflow solutions, disk drive optimization tools, and solutions for enterprise and commercial printing. Earlier, he ran HP Labs' first university research program. Rosenberg created HP Labs "science centers" at Stanford, UC Berkeley, and MIT, and numerous other successful university research partnerships. He also developed HP Labs' first research program with Chinese universities, and established the HP Labs research subsidiary in Israel. As a research manager at HP Labs, he led the creation of an expert systems language and tool kit used within HP and at several leading universities. Expert system solutions he developed for HP included photolithography error diagnosis, computer configuration tools, a best in class mass spectroscopy analysis tool, and the gold standard (at the time) handwriting recognition system.

Prior to HP, at the Computer Science and Applied Mathematics Department of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley, Rosenberg developed tools for visualizing the distribution systems for energy resources in the U.S. and understanding the impact of disruptions to the US energy distribution grid. As a member of M.I.T.'s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, he engaged in research on computational linguistics, reasoning and knowledge representation.

Rosenberg has been on the advisory boards for the Computer Science Departments of UCLA and the University of Pennsylvania. He has also been a consultant to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), ActivNetworks, Apple, and the Internet Archive. He holds a B.S. with First Class Honors from McGillUniversity, and an M.S. and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University. He has over 35 publications, and eleven patents granted.
