Transdisciplinary Agora for Future Discussions (TAFFD's) is a think tank dedicated "to helping people understand the benefits and challenges of technology applied to high-impact industries and disciplines across the world". It is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) registered as nonprofit in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. TAFFD's publishes a successful magazine and has a project underway to publish a journal as well.

TAFFD's was founded in January 2019 by Ósìnàkáchì Ákùmà Kálù, a transhumanist from Nigeria. Transhumanist William Coburn served as CEO. In October 2019 they hosted a conference at the University of Rwanda called the International Conference on Technoscientific Awareness in Solving 21st Century Problems. In spring 2020 they hosted a "Conference on Future Africa" which featured many transhumanists as speakers including Gennady Stolyarov II, Daniel Elton, Tom Ross, and Dieder Coeurnelle. The conference was supposed to be in the startup hub of Kigali, Rwanda but was moved to be a virtual event due to the COVID19 pandemic.

In mid-2020 a new leadership was announced with Tom Ross as CEO, Brenda Ramokopelwa as Vice President, Satyajitsinh Gohil as CTO, Edward Hudgins as COO, and Correy Kowall as director of AI.
