Geneva, Zug, Switzerland – October 20, 2021 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN), a leading cybersecurity, IoT and AI company, today announced that David Fergusson, Executive MD of Generational Equity and Carlos Moreira, CEO and Founder of WISeKey, authors of ‘The transHuman Code’ and ‘Artificial Humanity’ will host the introduction of ‘The Code to the Metaverse – Programming Our Future For Good’ at a meeting scheduled to be held on October 23, 2021 at Collegio Teutonico, Vatican City.
In the best-selling 2019 book, The transHuman Code, business leaders David Fergusson and Carlos Moreira offered the world a carefully curated outlook on the essential conversations that will determine whether we use technology to upgrade or undermine our humanity. Addressing critical topics like water, finance, government, jobs, and health, the book ignited a global dialogue about how to ensure that humanity and technology exist in harmony during this digital revolution.
In collaboration with the Pontifical Lateran University at the Vatican and Humanity 2.0, the authors were invited to bring the conversation to the Vatican’s Collegio Teutonico shortly after the book’s launch. The event assembled technology, corporate, finance, government, academic, ecclesiastic and media leaders in an interactive forum to catalyze awareness and establish the best path forward.
On October 23, Fergusson and Moreira, together with Father Philip Larrey, Chairman of Humanity 2.0; Chair of Logic Epistemology and Dean of Philosophy at the Pontifical Lateran University in the Vatican; and author of Artificial Humanity, will return to Collegio Teutonico to introduce The Code to the Metaverse – Programming Our Future For Good, a forthcoming twelve-part multi-media series that convenes the brightest minds and most important resources to one end: ensuring the highest human values are embedded into today’s most important technological advancements.
This exclusive, invitation only event, a feature of the Elite Global Leader’s Conference, brings financial, philanthropic, spiritual and business leaders together to discuss The Code and the steps we must collectively take to create the future we most desire.
