According to Mr. Thieme, “BioHacking is attacking the genome, the organism, the species, to create new possibilities.” He continued, “Beyond the enhancements of humanity-of-the-moment, bioHacking aims to generate new qualities and capabilities. BioHacking takes the work of corporate and government labs and puts it back in the garage where it belongs.”
Eric Lopez, Conference Director at EC-Council, (host of the hacking conference) said, “We are excited to have Mr. Theime at our event because, he focuses on the challenges posed by new technologies and the future.” Mr. Lopez, went onto to say, “In this presentation Richard Thieme will explain how BioHacking is the new frontier and how the term ‘hacking’ is often used to describe how similar methodologies and techniques are used with living organisms.”
Mr. Thieme is an enthralling and thought-provoking presenter who has spoken for numerous hacker conferences, including Def Con and Black Hat and his addition to Hacker Halted will be an exciting new twist for the hacker community. For more information please visit http://www.hackerhalted.com/2012.
