Paulo Pinheiro da Silva has been a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Knowledge Systems, Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Stanford University since 2002. During his Ph.D. study, Paulo has developed UMLi -- the Unified Modeling Language for Interactive Systems along with methods and tools aiming to facilitate systematic development of interactive systems. Currently, Paulo is a co-technical leader of the Inference Web project, which aims to provide infrastructure for explaining answers from software systems. Inference Web is sponsored by a number of DARPA and ARDA projects. He is a former member of the Grupo de Banco de Dados of UFMG, Brazil, a leading research group on information extraction and information retrieve in Latin America. He is a former member of the Information Management Group of the University of Manchester, UK, a leading research group on Semantic Web, Grid and e-Science solutions in Europe.
