In 2006 he was awarded the Scopus Prize, given to 16 Brazilian researchers considered the most productive in terms of papers published and citations. More informations here.

 
Abstract: Advances in computer science and information technology are shaping the progress of science and technology, and of society as a whole. Based on machine learning and Big Data methodologies one may now conceive – for the first time in history – an era of machine-generated knowledge, with no human intervention. In this lecture, the main challenges to achieve this new paradigm of knowledge generation will be discussed, with emphasis on natural language processing and the merge of distinct technologies to develop applications in Internet of Things and computer-assisted diagnosis. Also discussed will be the use of complex networks to model various natural and artificial systems, which again points to computer science as central for understanding the world and mimicking nature in the creation of intelligent machines.
