An integrated interest and expertise-based discovery system and method infers interest and expertise levels of users and generates recommendations for delivery to the users in accordance with the inferred interest and expertise levels. The inferences of expertise may be relative to other users and may be combined with expertise calibration information in generating expected expertise levels for users with respect to one or more topics. The generation of recommendations may be informed by the degree of inferred interest in topical areas, by the comparison of expertise levels among users, and by information regarding the user expertise levels that are appropriate with respect to specific items of content. Explanations may be provided to recommendation recipients as to why they received recommendations.
