Fernando Buarque de Lima Neto received his PhD in Artificial Intelligence from the University of London-Imperial College (2002). He is the head of the Computational Intelligence Research Group and Senior Associate Professor at the University of Pernambuco-Brazil, where he has supervised over 100 students in the PhD, MSc and BSc final dissertations. He has authored over 220 scientific publications and holds visiting positions at Texas A&M University, University of Johannesburg, University of Munster-WWUU, and University of Exeter. He is Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (Germany), IEEE Senior Member (USA), and Life member of the Academy of Science (PE-Brazil). He visited the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS in Munster-Germany) during his postdoctoral sabbatical leave in 2014, and the University of Florida-USA in 2019. His current research focuses on Computational Intelligence and Semiotics for Modeling/Simulations of complex optimization problems, and Intelligent Decision Support using Explainable AI. Presently, he is investigating how Responsible AI could be attained via rational processes for establishing flourishing societies. Prof. Buarque is also involved in spreading out the use of AI for practical complex problems in industry. For that he coaches students and former students who want to venture into the business world of innovation.
