The Speaker Lab fosters critical thinking, problem solving, interaction, literacy skills, ethics, creativity, discussion, and collaboration. Subject matter experts and researchers share lived experiences and reflect the dynamic changes in the ecosystem.

 

As end users of the medical system, we have an opportunity to change the dynamic of our industry, particularly in reflecting on the momentum of the current situation we have faced as a worldwide community during COVID-19. We work to enlighten and inspire BHV attendees through creative and collaborative discussions around emerging technologies and threats, novel work in biologics, security architectures, and the opportunities inside the interdisciplinary nature of healthcare. 

Reimagine and reinvent healthcare through action, equity, and trust.

SPEAKER LAB: TALK TIPS

Like all hackers, we are looking to subvert the dominant paradigm - of life itself. Your talk should excite, elucidate, enlighten, and engage participants in the technical, mechanical, procedural, and human sides of biohacking by meeting people where they are, demonstrating scientific integrity and respect for human life, and offering listeners a strong call to action.

Branding

Significance – Does your project deliver meaningful impact to the biohacking scientific community? Does it add value, for either scientific, technological, ethical, cultural, or artistic purposes?

Storytelling

Originality – Is your project an original work, or at least sufficiently builds upon current research in a unique and meaningful way? Are your methods to a common problem producing stronger results? 
(Exceptions can be made for introductory & educational talks.)

DESIGN

Scientific rigor – Was the project conducted in accordance with the scientific method and ethics standards? Are less-scientific aspects of the topic acknowledged? If you’re not making scientific claims, does your technology actually work? Is your failed effort acknowledged with a detailed description of lessons-learned?

Ideation

Coolness – Extra points will be given for the “cool” factor. We want to be wowed. We want our jaws to drop in wonder. We want to be blown away with the inspiring possibility that you have made reality. Amaze us.
