Biography

Pablos Holman is a notorious hacker, inventor, entrepreneur and technology futurist who looks at the world differently than most, and is on a quest to solve the world’s problems through the innovation of technology.  At the Intellectual Ventures Lab, he has worked on a brain surgery tool, a machine to suppress hurricanes, a self-sterilizing elevator button, a cure for cancer, a gun that shoots laser beams at malaria-carrying mosquitos, and 3D food printers.  Pablos has a unique ability to articulate practical visions for the future of technology.  He has contributed to visions for the future of urban transportation, entertainment, education, health care, food delivery, sensor networks, payment systems & cloud computing. Previously, Pablos helped build spaceships; the world’s smallest PC; artificial intelligence agent systems; and the Hackerbot, a robot that can steal passwords on a Wi-Fi network. He is a world-renowned expert in the fast-moving 3D printing space, and is currently working on printing the food of the future among other things. Pablos is often invited to speak at conferences about invention, hacking, technology and The Intellectual Ventures Lab.  Recently, he has spoken at Stanford, the United Nations Headquarters, EG, The Milken Global Conference, the World Economic Forum at Davos, the CIA, and many of the top Tech companies in the world. Hackers have minds that are optimized for discovery – violating warranties and our instinct about what is possible with new technologies. Hackers are like scientists, but without all the formal training and accountability that could slow them down. This discovery process is fundamental to invention. We need to rescue hackers from the computer security department and get them into product development.
