Warner's work has indicated an optimal mapping of interactive interface technologies to the human nervous system's capacity to transduce, assimilate and respond intelligently to information in an integrative-multisensory interaction will fundamentally change the way that humans interact with information systems. Application areas for this work include quantitative assessment of human performance, augmentative communication systems, environmental controls for the disabled, medical communications and integrated interactive educational systems. Warner is particularly active in technology transfer of aerospace and other defense derived technologies to the fields of health care and education. Specific areas of interest are: advanced instrumentation for the acquisition and analysis of medically relevant biological signals; intelligent informatic systems which augment both the general flow of medical information and provide decision support for the health care professional; public accesses health information databases designed to empower the average citizen to become more involved in their own health care; and advanced training technologies which will adaptively optimize interactive educational systems to the capacity of the user.

ABOUT DR. DAVE WARNER, M.D., PH.D.

Much of Warner's recent work and travels have been to global hotspots where his "intelligence on demand" has been applied to solving or ameliorating both military problems -- mine detection in Iraq, for example -- to humanitarian relief and intelligence gathering and distribution in mega-disaster zones like Banda Aceh, Indonesia following the tsunami there late last year.

"Mother Nature is the worst terrorist of all," Warner dryly observed, pointing to the havoc caused in Banda Aceh by one of the worst disasters in recorded history. His efforts there were focused on airborne informatics and helping rescuers and relief workers on the ground better understand the scope and magnitude of that far-flung disaster as it unfolded.
