The Transhuman Code Initiative
This is an initiative that delivers a long term view on the impact technology is having on all of our lives. Only David and Carlos have the foresight and network to bring together a stellar group of experts on the socio-political impact of techno-economical transformations happening on a daily basis all over the world. This is indeed a great platform to engage us all in a conversation that is so critical to our future!- Danil Kerimi, Director - Head of Digital Economy and Global Technology Policy, World Economic Forum
The TransHuman Code
Managing The Future of Humanity and Technology
What does it mean to be human?
Does our DNA define us? Our intellect, emotions, or will? Our soul?
While our answers are varied and vague, as they have been for centuries, technology now compels us to tighten our collective answer.
Possibilities and predictions abound about the coming months but there is now consensus that machines will become as smart as humans by 2029. Between now and then, we will become increasingly transhuman—humans with more and more technological capability. This knowledge layers the human question to also ask: At what point do we, infused with artificial qualities, stop being human? … What do we ultimately want to become? … What will we become if we do nothing? For some prople and organizations a TransHuman is part of Humanity+, multidisciplinary approach in analyzing the dynamic interplay between humanity and the acceleration of technology.” For some people it means replacing what has been lost, albeit imperfectly, with technology.
As bionic eyesight and hearing become widely available, will only those impaired have access? If a neural implant could eliminate dementia and Alzheimer’s, who’s to say it shouldn’t be used for ADHD, brain fatigue, or the aspiration to become a smarter person? If a robot can perform a job better than you, are you dispensable? What are the limits of Artificial Intelligence and how should it be governed?
As we navigate the days ahead, these are the conversations worthy of our attention. Together we must navigate the merger of man and machine to determine the best path between what we can do and what we will do. Our true north is a collective comprehension of what it must mean—and must not mean—to be a thriving human on a thriving planet. Our best answers will codify our best future.
This is the objective of the Transhuman Code, a profound new initiative supported by major media partners. Through a breakthrough multimedia campaign comprised of a website, app, social media campaign, major book launch, and a content subscription service, the Transhuman Code initiative will facilitate the important conversations, provide access to the latest knowledge and discoveries, and offer rare access to the key people and places on the forefront of our transhuman future.
This necessary initiative will engage and inform all citizens of the world in thoughtful dialogue about the dynamic influencers on our personal, communal and professional lives. Exploring and bringing leading expertise on how the application of technology to the infrastructure of our lives i.e. employment, education, transportation, communities, government, currency, and health can shape our future, will afford us the collective opportunity to manage the relationship between humanity and technology.
The movement is already occurring around us so there isn’t a question of participation. We are and will all be affected. The question is whether we will lead ourselves where we want to go or be passively led where we potentially don’t want to go. The Transhuman Code initiative will ensure we are taking the lead.
