Exclusively Represented by CAL Entertainment, 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.
“Pablos is like a spy that we send to our own future, to find out what they know and help us catch up. When you have to pick five people to bring with you into a bunker until the fallout subsides, pick Pablos & four other people just like him. But there’s no one like him.”
– Kevin Slavin
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.
Pablos will discuss some of the invention projects under way at the Intellectual Ventures Lab, and their efforts to create an Invention Capital market. He will also be showing off some of the super powers that hackers possess, so leave your computers at home.

Innovate or Die Trying (or other similar title) – From the Mind of World Renown Hacker, Pablos Holman
How many taxi companies could have made their own iPhone app but didn’t? Everyone knows they had better innovate or die, but what does that really mean? How do you know if Silicon Valley is going to come after your industry? Can we learn to innovate faster than our competitors? If computers can do the job of a truck driver, what about a factory worker, or a chef, or a doctor, or you?
Pablos is one of the rare technologists who can both understand and explain these new technologies and their potential. Working with them every day at his lab, his team has taken on problems ranging from hurricane suppression to brain surgery & disease eradication to nuclear energy.
A futurist, inventor, and notorious hacker with a unique view into breaking and building new technologies, Pablos works on invention projects that assimilate new technologies – making wild ideas a bit more practical and vice versa. He helped create the world’s smallest PC; 3D printers at Makerbot; spaceships with Jeff Bezos; Mosquito zapping lasers with Bill Gates; artificial intelligence agent systems; and the Hackerbot, a Wi-Fi seeking robot. He is also an advisor to the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history, raising $27 Million in 30 days, for the 3D printer – Glowforge.

Implementing Science Fiction
Pablos and his team became the most prolific inventors in America – by creating a process of “team sport invention.” There is a lot to learn about innovation from people working at one extreme end of the spectrum and Pablos will be talking about how they get ahead of the rest of the world and invent for the near future.
