Pablos Holman is a futurist, inventor, security expert, and notorious hacker with a unique view into both breaking and building new technologies. Relating the unique mindset and powers of hackers to all aspects of invention and innovation, he terrifies and delights all audiences.
Hacker, entrepreneur, researcher and space ship builder, Pablos Holman lives in a future where cars have system updates, front doors have smart locks, credit cards are secure and where you can shoot down mosquitoes with laser beams.
He consults on invention and design projects that assimilate new technologies – making wild ideas a bit more practical and vice versa. Previously, Pablos helped build the world’s smallest PC, spaceships at privately funded aerospace company Blue Origin, artificial intelligence agent systems and thigh holsters for cell phones.
He is a member of The Shmoo Group of security experts, and helped create the Hackerbot, a WiFi-seeking robot.
Pablos works at the Intellectual Ventures Laboratory where a wide variety of futuristic invention projects are under way including a fission reactor powered by nuclear waste; a machine to stop hurricanes; a tool for deep brain surgery; and tools to help eradicate malaria.
Holman’s vision is that everything around us will be computerized in the future, thus everything we see around that hasn’t been computerized yet should be looked at as an opportunity. Holman says the entire world will be networked in the future, so let’s start planning on that now. He insists that the current abilities for computational modeling are something everybody should be taking advantage of.
Pablos, a highly sought after speaker for events all over the world believes that when it comes to innovation cost should not be an issue as costs are very likely to change tomorrow, as has already been demonstrated with so many computer related components.
