About Pablos

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.

Speaking Topics

  • Hacker Mindset

    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.
