Transforming Wellbeing Theory
Transforming Wellbeing Theory (TWT) is emerging as an inevitable response to the ever-growing imbalance in our lives across the globe. Over the decades, we have been advancing technologies to make our lives better.

Every crucial domain of our lives continuously provides evidence of how things are getting misbalanced despite us making huge progress in building increasingly capable technological innovations, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, and drones, just to name a few. This talk will discuss how TWT advances scientific knowledge and its practical applications to transform lives. Due to its strong fundament that intertwines technological innovations with human nature, the theory is applicable in many essential life contexts, including health, education, sustainability, equality, governance, safety, emergency, management, marketing, ecology, economy, and dwelling.
