Managing the future of humanity and technology towards the 4th Industrial Revolution

Transhumancode Book by Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson

our future

The human is and will always be the greatest and most advanced technology the world has ever known. And the understanding, improvement, and utilization of humanity must be today’s highest priority?

How we do this today is new territory. Dynamic innovative opportunities are here, or very near, for the taking. Which ones should we pursue and why? The transHuman Code introduces us to the discussions we must have. Together, both readers and contributors will form collective, proactive answers in this interactive process.

Join us, in this ground-breaking knowledge platform, as we begin this important work together on a humancentric approach to technological innovation.

the book

Consider this, the world’s first “smart book,” a conversation starter, an introduction to the innovations and innovators who are changing our world, and most importantly an invitation.

The code for the major technological platforms that we all use—Facebook, Google, Twitter, Apple, etc.—has been developed by a collective few. The transHuman Code will be developed by all of us in conversation and collaboration with one another.

To quote John Rettinger, President of Techno Buffalo, the largest independent consumer electronics portal in the world, “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.”

You are invited to join in the development of the transHuman code.

The is the first interactive “knowledge platform” for managing the convergence of humanity and technology, its impact on our daily lives, and the long-term implications. This dynamic initiative will be showcased again on January 23 in Davos, Switzerland during the world’s foremost assembly of international leaders. In an innovative multi-media program, informing and engaging all citizens of the world about the dynamic influences of technology in our personal, communal and professional lives, The TransHuman Code was formed to redefine the hierarchy of our needs and how we will meet them in the future.

Originated by Swiss cybersecurity pioneer, WISeKey and authored by Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson, The TransHuman Code will feature exclusive insights from the world’s premier authorities on the application of AI, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, IoT, and Robotics to, employment, communication, transportation, communities, security, government, food, finance, entertainment and health.

“The TransHuman Code Davos Gathering of Minds” hosted by CBS Inside Edition Host Megan Alexander, will bring together global leaders in technology, business, finance, government, academia and the media for this exclusive event. Highlights include the introduction of the world’s first digital person and the first autonomous flying “taxi”, live expert interviews and exclusive high-level discussion and debate amongst the platform contributors.

During the event we will be demonstrating a digital signing of the THC physical book using a microchip and Digital Identity of the Book. Book signings are a standard part of an author’s life, and most view it as a chore. Readers also find the experience less than thrilling. They stand in line to get an autograph and perhaps share ten words with the author. But in Davos the digital signing of the TransHuman Code book will be raised to a completely new experience. As soon as each book will be signed, the book will turn from pulp and paper into a digital gateway to a community of TransHuman Code enthusiasts around the world sharing their digital identities via a Secure Ledger provided by WISeKey.

Human society is being transformed by new technologies, and the big question is: What is the DNA of this emerging new world? David and Carlos have assembled a tremendous resource for understanding what this transHuman world will look like, and more importantly how we can guide it to be a world whose character is more human than technological.

In 1981, The Soul of a New Machine lauded the obsessive pursuit of a technology innovation that highlighted the feverish dedication of a few bright minds. The transHuman Code reminds us that humans remain at the center of automation’s evolution, with a collective responsibility to bring our unique sensibilities to bear, whether we are technologists or not. The transHuman Code invites everyoneto be a part of the conversation.

Our world is being transformed at an unprecedented pace. This book raises the question at the center of this new era of technological disruption: what will the role be for humans in the future? With the transHuman Code, we can now choose a path for our future that protects both humanity and human identity.

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.
