A computer-implemented expertise discovery method and system generates recommendations of people in accordance with inferences of levels of expertise from behavioral information. The generation of the recommendations may be in accordance with comparisons of two or more expertise vectors and associated correlations between the vectors. The inferences of expertise may be with respect to specified topical neighborhoods. Explanations as to why recommendations were made are delivered to the recommendation recipients, and may include references to the inferred levels of expertise, the behavioral bases for the inferences, and/or the confidence in the inferences.
