Innovate or Die Trying– 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.
