Short bio

Pere Barlet-Ros received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 2003 and 2008, respectively. He is currently an associate professor with the Computer Architecture Department of the UPC and scientific director at the Barcelona Neural Networking Center (BNN-UPC). From 2013 to 2018, he was co-founder and chairman of the machine learning startup Talaia Networks. The company was acquired by Auvik Networks in 2018. Previously, he was also a visiting researcher at Endace (New Zealand), Intel Research Cambridge (UK) and Intel Labs Berkeley (USA). For the last 10 years, his research has focused on the development of novel machine learning technologies for network management and optimization, traffic classification and network security, which have been integrated in several open-source and commercial products, including Talaia, Auvik TrafficInsights, Intel CoMo and SMARTxAC. In 2014, he received the 2nd VALORTEC prize for the best business plan awarded by the Catalan Government (ACCIO) and in 2015 the Fiber Entrepreneurs award as the best entrepreneur of the Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB). He has also been the Principal Investigator of 7 competitive research projects and advised 6 Ph.D. theses in the fields of network monitoring and machine learning.
