It might be wise for us to put ourselves in the hands of a machine intelligence that can take the best decision for the greatest amount of people. That’s what a democracy should be about.” — Zoltan Istvan


Zoltan is an eloquent, Ivy-league educated philosopher yearning to use science, technology, and reason to dramatically remake humanity. He is the founder of the Transhumanist Party and the author the Transhumanist Bill of Rights as well as the bestselling novel “The Transhumanist Wager”. “The Transhumanist Wager” is a political and philosophical text, often likened to Ayn Rand’s work, which is being taught in a few dozen colleges around the world as a warning about and inspiration for the future.

Global leader of the radical science movement. Zoltan Istvan’s radical ideas have given him a strong support base with millennials. Currently, he is a columnist at Vice, and at the young age of 43, Istvan was the only presidential candidate to be interviewed by underground mega-group Anonymous.

Recently, Zoltan has consulted for the US Navy as a futurist, interviewed to be Libertarian Gary Johnson’s Vice President, appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience (and dozens of other shows), and given many speeches, including at Microsoft, the Global Leaders Forum, and the Financial Times Camp Alphaville (opening Keynote).

Formerly a journalist for National Geographic Channel and the New York Times Syndicate, Zoltan has been compared in major media to a young Al Gore. Zoltan also has a history of activism; formerly working as Communications Director at WildAid, a major nonprofit wildlife organization that aims to stop wildlife poaching and protect endangered species.
