Bob Hearn

Rice CS alumnus and entrepreneur Bob Hearn.

Bob Hearn (BA ’86) is the founder and CEO of H3 Labs. Early in his career, he co-wrote ClarisWorks with Scott Holdaway, and sold it to Claris. Then he headed to MIT for a PhD in Computer Science.

He said, “I intended to study artificial intelligence, although my thesis wound up being on games and computation! My lifetime goal is to recreate human-level intelligence. I study both traditional artificial intelligence and computational neuroscience to pursue this goal (while keeping one foot in games & theory).”
