Dr Keith Power


KeithPowerImageKeith completed a Joint BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics in UCC in 1999. He subsequently obtained a PhD in decentralised and scalable distributed computing through the Centre for Unified Computing in UCC where he was afterwards employed (2003) as a postdoc researcher in the area of high-performance distributed computing.

Since then he's obtained much industrial experience working with IBM, EMC and United Technology's R&D lab, UTRC. He has also done significant consulting work on projects as diverse as developing machine learning algorithms for animal health monitoring, converting 2D movie footage to 3D and programming computer games.

He is currently the Lead Data Science Engineer at security start-up where he's responsible for detecting malicious behaviour in large volumes of network traffic.
