The TransHuman Code Book: The greatest technology on the planet is the human

Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson

The TransHuman Code Book to be pre-launched at Davos during the TransHuman Code Event . This is a book about a simple truth. But not just any simple truth. This is a truth on which the world’s future hinges. If you and enough other people embrace it, we will have a real shot at ending global plagues like cancer, hunger, poverty and sickness. Innovation will flourish. Democracy will lead. Compassion will reach further. The simple truth is this: the greatest technology on the planet is the human.


I really enjoyed the book's perspective on how we look at technology as humans and the fear that we are allowing it to direct our emotions in ways that negatively affect society. I can honestly say that I will never look at my phone or other tech devices without thinking about the way I am interacting with people in my personal and professional life and think that there might be more human ways I could be doing it!

A Must Read

I couldn't stop thinking about this book after I finished reading it. It really makes you take a step back and think about the impact technology has on all of us. If you don't have The transHuman Code on your reading list, you need to add it.

Sobering Perspective

A sobering perspective on how technology effects the individual and society. Interesting and informative read for anyone from the everyday iPhone user to technology professionals.

A must read!

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. A must read!

No topic is off limits and that’s what makes this book so essential.

"The TransHuman Code is the MUST READ book of the year. As technology continues to disrupt every aspect our lives, David and Carlos discuss the imminent need for a bold conversation on what makes us human and what values we need to preserve and strengthen - before it’s too late. No topic is off limits and that’s what makes this book so essential."

The transHuman Code invites everyone to be a part of the conversation.

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 everyone to be a part of the conversation.

By applying the transHuman Code, China can bring together social responsibility and technological innovation for the benefit of all.

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.
