Ethics/Innovation Board & Matron

Natasha Vita-More, PhD, introduces new ways of thinking about the science, technology, and social implications on humanity and our future. As an innovator, she received recognition for designing the first wholebody prototype that synthesizes nanotech, biotech, robotics, and AI. Natasha’s scientific breakthrough on long-term memory of vitrified C.elegans established, for the first time, evidence of viable neuronal functioning. Her spearheading concept of the Regenerative Generation brings about a new way of thinking about aging “ageless thinking”. Wired magazine called Natasha an “early adopter of revolutionary ideas” and Village Voice claimed she is “a role model for superlongevity”.

Having been published in numerous academic journals, such as Rejunivative Research, Metaverse Creativity and Technoetic Arts – A Journal of speculative Research, New Realities: Being Syncretic, Beyond Darwin, and D’ARS. Vita-More is also a contributing author to chapters of the books AI Society, Anticipating 2025, Intelligence Unbound. Her own book (below) is published by the renown Wiley Blackwell Publishing.

Vita-More received Special Recognition at Women in Video and has exhibited at the London Contemporary Art Museum, Niet Normaal, and the Moscow Film Festival. She is most known for having designed the pioneering whole body prototype known as “Platform Diverse Body” (f/k/a Primo Posthuman) and the networked identity “Substrate Autonomous Identity”. With a background as a immersive designer in multi-media, her work focuses on science, technology, and philosophy. Her current work includes scientific research on memory of C. elegans nematode after vitrification.

Featured in LAWeekly, The New York Times, and U.S. News & World Report, Vita-More has appeared in over two dozen televised documentaries on the future, including PBS, BBC, TLC, ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Dr. Vita-More is a Professor at the University of Advancing Technology.
