In The transHuman Code, authors Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson ask, "Are we building a better future for humanity with the help of magnificent technology or are we instead building a better future of better technology at the expense of humanity?" We must learn to put humanity first instead of getting caught up in the promise of technological advancement. Humans have been able to adapt, morph, and compromise in every situation we have faced over the centuries and have been able to maintain dominance. We must approach the promises of technology with the same adaptability.
What the authors propose is that if we start the design of the transHuman future from a human perspective, making sure that technology will inspire revolution or evolution, then we can ensure humanity continues to thrive. The transHuman Code tries to center humanity in the emerging tension between a human-controlled or a machine-controlled world. Moreira and Fergusson examine how humans can maintain the uniqueness and the humanity in this brave new world.
Carlos Creus Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey, says: “Actors of the WWW have been inefficient in building a digital identity: the web is blind. Traceability of products can not be established if you don’t have a web identity.” Today during his panel at the world policy summit, Carlos Moreira presented a Global technology response to fight illicit trade as economic leakages from illicit trade create an annual drain on the global economy of $2.2 trillion – nearly 3% of the world’s economy. From smuggling, counterfeiting and tax evasion, to the trafficking of humans and wildlife, illicit trade holds back progress, increases costs and pushes the goals further away. Today, illicit trade has become a major contributor to discrepancies in wealth between the developing and developed world, while fueling devastating conflicts and undermining the legitimacy of countries. In fact, counterfeiting is the conduit that supports destabilizing and dangerous activities in nearly every sphere.❞
Great insights from the World Policy Conference event on world governance models that allows us to reflect how to improve the system by which the current and future utilization of innovation and technology are coordinated so it respect human values and needs. As we had the opportunity to cover on the transhumancode book we need to ensure that we are building a better future for humanity with the help of magnificent technology and not instead building a better future of better technology at the expense of humanity. Getting right the technology governance will be a major step to define the world governance in the 4th industrial revolution.

Every user of technology—which is pretty much everybody—should read this book. It’s filled with profound questions we should all be asking ourselves about what we hope our relationship with technology will, and will not, ultimately do for us. Before you pick up your phone again, read The transHuman Code.

Over the past 25 years, with China’s rising, I have been witness to the most dramatic growth of the financial markets in our country. Today, China is undergoing another revolution, the technological revolution and it is both promising and threatening. We are pioneering the development and application of blockchain, AI and IoT for people of all ages, income levels and professions. By applying the transHuman Code, China can bring together social responsibility and technological innovation for the benefit of all.
