Dr. Thomas K. Landauer (born April 25, 1932)[1] is a professor at the Department of Psychology of the University of Colorado.
He was one of the pioneers of Latent semantic analysis, and in 1995 published a controversial analysis of the productivity paradox of information technology.

He is currently a Vice President at Pearson Education. He is also Professor Emeritus of Psychology at University of Colorado. Previously he was the manager of an information science and human-computer interaction research group at Bell Laboratories and Bellcore.
