Prof. Salvatore Domenic Morgera
Dr. Sal Morgera has focused on networks all his professional life. He, and the teams he has directed, are responsible for the Canadian oceanographic data gathering networks, the acoustic networks for American submarine tactical and strategic communications, the worldwide CAT3 auto-landing networks for commercial aircraft, and the military wireless networks used in sensitive and challenging parts of the world. In the last decade, he has turned his attention to living networks, the neurological networks of the brain and has made two discoveries: the nerve fibers of the brain communicate, compete, and cooperate with one another, thereby forming a highly sophisticated spatial-temporal network, and, further, this interaction is enabled by reactive electric near-fields (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg50wEHqpas). Understanding these extraordinary networks and the bio-metamaterial human brain structure in which they operate will enable mankind to develop machines with Real Intelligence (RI), as opposed to Artificial Intelligence (AI). Dr. Sal Morgera is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of South Florida, Emeritus Professor at institutions in Canada and the US, and Director of the Global Center for Neurological Networks. He received his Ph.D. degree from Brown University and is an IEEE Life Fellow and an AAAS Fellow.
