Ghislaine Boddington's 2024 biography

Meet Ghislaine Boddington

Ghislaine Boddington is a world leading expert in digital identity, virtual presence and immersion experiences. As a presenter, researcher, podcaster and curator she has shared her original perspective globally since the mid nineties, focussing on the evolution of liveness and virtual physical presence and exploring developments in our bodies, our senses and our identity, and how we can evolve intimacy, touch, empathy and trust in hybrid futures.

Her presentations, podcasts and consultancies anticipate difficult questions that researchers, creatives, technologists, policy makers and the wider public need to debate and consider as our living relationship with technology continues to evolve. She explores this from an interesting historical perspective, through to the recent past and takes us into the future with deep intuitive accuracy.

Forever interested in the use of the body as a digital interaction canvas, Ghislaine comes from a background in performing arts and dance and was connecting telepresence stages between performers around the world from the mid 1990s. In 2017 she was awarded the esteemed SAT IX Immersion Experience International Visionary Pioneer Award in recognition for her long term and inspirational reflections on the shifts that fast expanding body-led technologies make to our digital identity and to our future as human beings.

Today she continues to amalgamate her practise-based knowledge of telepresence, virtual worlds, robotics, motion capture, AR/MR, wearables, implants, sense and gesture tech to create future visions. Her ongoing aim is in creating a wider debate about both the positive and negative aspects of such evolutions on our living bodies, whilst finding solutions and forward-thinking approaches, specific to your needs.

She regularly inputs items and co-presents for BBC World Service and BBC Technology shows and podcasts, where she shares her insights on the merge of our physical selves and our data selves, biometric data ownership and the future of the ‘hyper-enhanced’ human. She is a member of the UK Government’s College of Experts for the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sports advising on the futures of creative industries and multi-verses.

A Reader in Digital Immersion at the University of Greenwich, Ghislaine is the co-founder and Creative Director of body>data>space, a collective of designers engaged in body responsive technologies, virtual physical networks, interactive interfaces and user centred experiences.

Ghislaine has keynoted in over 35 countries across creative industries, culture, policy, education and corporate sectors including Hyundai, BBC, Innovate UK, Nesta, Telefonica, FutureFest, Mobile World Congress, Cambridge University, ICA, Deutsche Bank, EU Forum Europe Digital, Here East/Plexal, DCMS, British Council, Imperial College and the National Theatre. “Through these projects, she has created moving and transformational links between thousands of people across the world” [Forbes]. She receives press / TV coverage of her ideas and her work (Independent, Financial Times, Forbes, Tech Trends, Guardian, Le Monde amongst others) and is regularly invited to input topical commentary for TV, radio and government reports, remaining at the forefront of the futurist debate.

A strong equity advocate, from 2017-2021 she was Spokesperson and lead mentor for Deutsche Bank’s ‘Women Entrepreneurs in Social Tech’ accelerator and for the last 10 years has been an active mentor and Trustee for Stemettes Futures.

Ghislaine Boddington's 2024 talks & topics

Future Human: The Body is the Interface

The integration of humans with our evolving technologies is moving faster than we realise, pointing to major transformations not only to our bodies, but to our understanding of ourselves and our identities. Ghislaine shares her thoughts on the directions being taken and the potential positive and negative outcomes ahead, extending the debate over the enhancement of our bodies through an examination of the link between personal data and embedded biometric technologies.

Women in Tech: Diversity & Inclusivity Enables Innovation

Ghislaine is well known for her long-term advocacy for diversity in collaboration, believing strongly that this is the only future pathway for creating truly inclusive innovations. She proposes a clear view on why we should prioritise gender equity in the tech sector, which is based on her work founding one of the first women in tech networks Women Shift Digital, as Spokesperson for Deutsche Bank’s accelerator Women Entrepreneurs in Social Tech and as a Trustee of the Stemettes.

Experience Economy: How Technology Will Define Collaborations

As we mature through the digital revolution our basic human need for collaboration is starting to define the types of experiences we want our technologies to offer us – interactive, reflective and conducive to the creation of a more positive life.

Ghislaine believes in what she calls “the incredible beauty of inter-disciplinary specialists working together in co-creation” and shares in this talk several key collaboration methods for the positive enablement of both teams and customers, extending options for successful products and service-based launches.

Bio-hacking Onstage: Live Human Chip Implant Show

As the sci-fi vision of the digital human starts to become reality, how can we ensure and prepare for a positive enhancement of our human selves? As technologies move inside our bodies Ghislaine presents examples of the burgeoning interest in non-medical implants – personalised for our own needs and able to replace several day-to-day requirements such as keys, travel and finance cards or enabling us to open our phones, laptops and homes with gestural swipes.
