WISeKey announces the launch of “The metaverse code” an interactive multimedia platform in Davos Event
TransHuman Code authors Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson present “The Code to The Metaverse” at Davos Event
Geneva and Zug Switzerland, May 312022 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN), a leading cybersecurity, IoT and AI company, announced that its CEO and Founder, Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson, Director Executive General, M&A at Generational Equity, presented their latest project, The metaverse code at the Davos event.
In the 2019 bestseller, The Transhuman Code, Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson offered a carefully curated view of the essential conversations that will determine whether technology will enhance or undermine our humanity. Born at the Davos event, through multiple conversations and workshops, one could rightly argue that the origin of the book was decentralized.
“With unprecedented speed, the expanding frontier of the metaverse now extends far beyond its ‘Second life’ roots of the game,” Mr. Fergusson said at the launch event. “In the most dramatic technological innovation of the past decade, we truly stand on the threshold of our future lives as we build bridges between our physical universe and the metaverse.”
“However, the founding premise of The Transhuman Code holds true as we venture into the unknown of the metaverse,” said Moreira. “First, that the human is the greatest technology of all and, more importantly, that it is essential to keep the human at the center of gravity of this technological revolution.”
In a series of events at the 2022 Davos annual gathering of business, political and philanthropic leaders, Moreira and Fergusson announced the continuation of The Transhuman Code with the creation of the revolutionary new multimedia platform – The metaverse code. Through the interactive series, participants, viewers and readers will be taken behind the scenes of the labs and the metaverse to experience their future in this 3D virtual realm.
To provide a glimpse of what’s to come, the authors have engaged 6 Metaverse Pioneers to discuss how the rapidly evolving gateways and tools for the Metaverse will transform our personal, professional, and social life experiences in a unimaginable way. Joining Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson were:
- Hossein Rahnama, CEO, Flybits Inc.; Professor, Toronto Metropolitan University and MIT Media Lab
- Roxy LiuDirector, Eureka Meta Capital
- David Clearer, CEO and Co-Founder Esme Learning Solutions; Professor, Imperial College
- Mrinal ManoharCEO CasperLabs
- Gunter PauliFounder, Blue Economy, Director, Zero Emission Research Initiative
- Monsignor Lucio Adrian RuizSecretary Dicastery of Communication, Holy See
Offering exclusive ideas and announcing dynamic initiatives, contributors all echoed a common theme: the metaverse will have a dramatic impact on how we socialize, work, and learn in the future. At the forefront of the collective agreement, Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson have aligned themselves with esteemed technology innovators on the principle that everyone can safely and confidently engage in the metaverse so that we, as individuals, let us be respected and treated fairly on all virtual platforms. .
