Geneva – May 16, 2022 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announces that it will hold its 14th Annual Cybersecurity Roundtable in Davos on Wednesday, May 25 (starting at 18:00 CET), at the Piano Bar of Hotel Europe (Promenade 63, 7270, Davos Platz, Switzerland).
The transHuman Code Meeting of The Minds – The CODE To Metaverse
Inspired at Davos through interactive workshops, The transHuman Code www.transhumancode.com is a bestselling book co-authored by Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson, released in June 2019 and subject of the forthcoming TV series.
Since 2007, Geneva headquartered cybersecurity pioneer WISekey, a WEF global growth company since 2007, has hosted the cybersecurity roundtable at the Europa Hotel. As WISekey has evolved their business focus, the event has expanded to become a full evening of thought leadership and entertainment to include business, spiritual, philanthropic and policy making leaders.
This year The Code to The Metaverse, will be introduced at Davos on Wednesday May in a broader partnership with NBC, who will be producing a 12 part multi-media series to include broadcast, event and social media programming.
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 transHuman Code 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.
Recent developments have forced governments around the world to take steps to quickly understand how Metaverse, this new frontier of innovation, is challenging the traditional conception of Sovereignty.
With data being stored virtually on the Metaverse anywhere in the world and government employees and citizens using information technology systems that are hosted and operated from anywhere (even outside of their jurisdiction), the expected sovereign rights over that date on the Metaverse needs to be reconsidered. Many information technology companies are telling governments that that their versions of the Metaverse will be enough to ensure sovereignty over their data and citizens. Others are stating that new legislation is needed to protect citizens. All in all, the solutions they propose are partial and unsatisfactory.
