Zoltan Istvan

Zoltan Istvan is widely recognized for spearheading the modern-day transhumanist movement, which advocates for using radical science such as artificial intelligence to improve and evolve human beings. In his 20s, Zoltan started as a journalist at National Geographic Channel. Later, he became a successful real estate developer during the boom years, and still owns many properties including vineyard entities in Argentina, Napa Valley, and Bordeaux. Zoltan was also a director at a major wildlife nonprofit, WildAid. In his 30s, Zoltan began writing a science fiction novel The Transhumanist Wager, which became a Top 5 Amazon bestseller book and won awards. Zoltan’s public work has received hundreds of millions of views, much of it through his political and science activism. He was the 2016 presidential candidate for the Transhumanist Party and toured the country in the Immortality Bus, which he used to deliver the original Transhumanist Bill of Rights to the US Capitol. Zoltan has spoken at the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, Microsoft, Harvard and was the opening keynote at the Financial Times Camp Alphaville. He did his undergrad at Columbia University and is currently a grad student in Philosophy (Ethics) at the University of Oxford. He lives in San Francisco with his physician wife and two young daughters. His work is chronicled in an Amazon Prime feature documentary titled IMMORTALITY OR BUST. In a 5000-word feature on his work, The New York Times wrote Zoltan is “polite and charismatic” and has a “plausibly Presidential aura.”
