The think tank forum – ‘TransHuman Code Meeting of The Minds’ will focus on the subject of these thought-provoking ground breaking books.

“Humanity is at a crossroads and the time has come for us not just to think collaboratively, but to put our thoughts into action”, states Matthew Sanders, CEO of Humanity 2.0. “This event assembles thought leaders from around the world to collaboratively act on providing global solutions.”
“Technology is shaping the fabric of our society”, states Rev. Philip Larrey, author of Artificial Humanity and Connected World. “And while Artificial Intelligence has captured the imagination of a generation, we need to challenge all to ensure that the ethical foundation is firmly established to fully thrive.”
Matt Bird, Host of the Traders Network Show and Advisor to Humanity 2.0, commented; enterprise adoption of new technologies including Artificial intelligence (AI), gives organizations great power to create automated efficiency. It’s our duty and responsibility as corporate leaders to make sure that technology doesn’t displace humanity but empowers humans to make better decisions in the work place – not replace them.
“The transHuman Code Meeting of The Minds” originated in Davos, Switzerland in 2015 where global leaders assembled to discuss the impending impact of the 4thIndustrial Revolution. Since that ground breaking event, authors Fergusson and Moreira have brought technology, corporate, finance, government, academic, and media leaders together at gatherings across the world to discuss how we can program our future for the betterment of all. This extensive research, culminated in the publishing of the book, The transHuman Code, in June of this year.
At the “transHuman Code Meeting of The Minds” assembly at the Vatican today, Humanity 2.0 and the book’s authors announced a global institutional tour featuring town hall style meetings of all technology stakeholders at leading universities over the year ahead.
