An IntraHealth International Production
Dave Warner is a medical neuroscientist with an MD/PhD from Loma Linda University researching new methods of physiologically based human-computer interaction to identify methods and techniques that optimize information flow between humans and computers. Much of his recent work has been in military/civilian operations supporting cross-domain information sharing and open communications capabilities in difficult settings such as refugee camps and disaster areas. Since 2006, Dave has been directing an ongoing operational experimentation effort in eastern Afghanistan focused on demonstrating that incentivized information sharing is vital to complex operations and that creating environments conducive to information sharing benefits coalition partners, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and the local community. Current efforts include exploring the use of open internet, social media, crowd sourcing, and mapping open source data for civilian support to ongoing stability operations.
