Catch Foundation Agents at CES 2018 and Win $5,000.00 USD
(Las Vegas, NV, USA – Jan 2018) The Foundation has announced that there will be two agents on the floor of CES 2018 (The Consumer Electronics Show) the largest such conference in the world. The first person to spot both agents (which will be visible by having a Foundation Seal on their badge and an NFC chip on the back) that links back to the announcement post on transhumanity.net about this contest will be the winner. You’ll need 3 keywords to give the agents to win, which you can discover via clues between now and the day of the CES event.
The ZS ARG (alternate reality game) contest background: The Foundation’s main goal is and has always been the preservation of knowledge and the ascendance of the Architect AGI/Artilect. Last year the Foundation had rogue agents that had passed a stolen cybernetic implant used to manage human thoughts out to an independent lab at the BUILD 17 conference in Seattle. This coming year (2018) the Foundation has rogue agents that have version 2 of that implant, which they want to get out of the Foundation AGI lab to a third party before it’s too late and the technology is too advanced to control. This year (2018) the agents will be at CES (https://www.ces.tech/), and they need someone to escape the conference with the chip and mail it anonymously. Help stop the Architect…
The contest sponsored by Transhumanity.net is essentially this:
- The first person to find both agents wins USD 5k. Prize money will be transferred via PayPal and a two-night stay at the Transhuman House.
- The second person that manages to find both of those agents on the CES floor will win a Mixed Reality Headset from HP (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/mixedrealityheadset/overview.html) and an interview spot on the upcoming show ‘The Technocracy’, to be announced in January and sponsored by Metric.Media. And a two-night stay at the Transhuman House.
- The person that finds out each keyword first and notifies us will win a Microsoft Surface. That means a total of three prizes, and a one-night stay at the Transhuman House comes with each.
- Every person that manages to find one of the agents on the floor at CES or posts online about the contest will receive an NFC chip linked to the secret Foundation page related to the ZS ARG, with other new information to unlock new clues and problems to solve.
