Industry

I work to position Data and AI at the core of business and operations aiming to deliver value to customers and society.

I am a Solution architect and research leader with client-face experience, working to place Data and AI at the core of business and operations.

I am working with IBM in projects around Data, IoT, and Enterprise AI. I am a former Director of Research with Samsung were I promoted a research agenda around Human-centred IoT and Intelligent Mobile Services., and coordinated the project "Evolution of Digital Education".

I hold a PhD in Computer Sciences from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Computer Sciences from UFSC, Brazil.

Research

My research is motivated by the following overreaching question:

​How can we create mechanisms to understand, anticipate, and promote AI in the organizations and understand its effects on how systems think, work, and collaborate?

I believe the challenges of promoting the 'new AI' in organizations will demand new ways to understand multi-agent information flows, architectures for insight and intelligence generation, and AI-centric operational models.  

My topic of interest include:

  • Enterprise AI

  • Distributed AI

  • Collective Intelligence

  • Distributed Computing
