Pablos Holman

Hacker Mindset

Pablos is a futurist, inventor, and notorious hacker with a unique view into breaking and building new technologies.

Pablos is consulting worldwide on invention and design 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; artificial intelligence agent systems; and the Hackerbot, a Wi-Fi seeking robot.

Currently, Pablos is working for Nathan Myhrvold at the Intellectual Ventures Laboratory where a wide variety of futuristic invention projects are underway including a fission reactor powered by nuclear waste; a machine to suppress hurricanes; a system to reverse global warming; and a device that can shoot mosquitoes out of the sky with lasers to help eradicate malaria.

Pablos has informed and entertained audiences at world-renowned technology summits including United Nations, the World Economic Forum at Davos, The CIA, TEDx and DEF CON on invention, innovation, cyber security and the future of technology.

Take a look at his TEDx talk on becoming relevant in a future where robots have taken over our jobs and his talk at the Singularity University Global Summit on hacking creativity.
