Tom Gruber is a technologist, designer, and entrepreneur who uses technology to augment human intelligence. He was cofounder and head of design for Siri, the intelligent personal assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. Now part of the latest iPhone, Siri represents a new mode of interaction with mobile devices and the information services they can reach. Previously, Tom led the design and technology for pioneering companies in Collaborative Knowledge Management for the enterprise and Collective Knowledge Systems on the Web, which harvest the collective contributions of people working and sharing on line. He invented HyperMail, the open-source software that turns email conversations into collective memories; HyperMail and its progeny have helped to create a living conversational history of the Web since its inception. His research in Artificial Intelligence, particularly Ontology Engineering, helped lay the foundation for the Semantic Web. He is passionate about underwater nature photography and contact improvisation.
