The transHuman Code Meeting
of The Minds – Ethical AI for A Sustainable Future

Inspired at Davos through interactive workshops, The transHuman Code is the bestselling book by co-authors Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson released in June 2019 and subject of the forthcoming TV series.

This year, the roundtable session will focus on the future of human sustainability with the rise of algorithmic technologies. Subject experts will explore how The transHuman Code platform coupled with AI agents, data mining, machine learning, and natural language search, will innovate the most responsible revolutionary technologies for our future.

We all agree that it is a precarious balancing act between technology and humanity in the application of AI, blockchain, cybersecurity, IoT, data management, and robotics to the future of education, employment, communication, transportation, communities, security, government, food, finance, entertainment and health.

Grounded in a human-centric foundation, The transHuman Code provides an ethical platform for developers, enablers and users of new technologies to prioritize keeping people at the center of gravity in the relationship between woman/man and machine.

With its roots in the development of secure identity management, Wisekey has stood at the forefront of providing greater security for data authentication since 1999. In the future, The TransHumanCode platform, secured by Wisekey, could seamlessly ensure that technological innovations protect humans in the all environments. Our co-existence with artificial intelligence will challenge all conventions of ethical norms as we have known them, as we continue to digitize our work environment, our social interaction, and our physical activities.

Join us, in this provocative dialogue, as we discuss how the future of everything will rest solely on how we establish responsible parameters for the relationship between technology and humanity.

The transHuman Code book debuted with the pre-launch of a VIP edition at Wisekey Davos ‘19. The final edition of the now bestselling book will be distributed to all pre-registered guests at the Wisekey Davos ’20 event.
