His greatest specialties are innovative technological solutions for the sectors of energy, industry and the gas industry. In his expert blog, he is discussing current issues related to electricity trade, its renewable sources, and transformations in the IT market. For 28 years he has been associated with the academic community as an employee of the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology. There in 1995 he also defended his doctoral dissertation, and then in 2009 he obtained a DSc degree in the field of technical sciences and construction and operation of machines. In addition, he has completed postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Sociology at Warsaw University and 2-year MBA studies at the University of Warsaw and the University of Illinois.

Since 1995, CEO at Transition Technologies SA (Currently Transition Technologies Capital Group), where in practice he realizes his interests related to information technology, automation and R&D. Besides the world’s first use of artificial immune systems to optimize industrial processes, he has to his credit a number of other Polish and European patents, as well as dozens of implementations in the United States, Asia and Europe. One of the solutions that Konrad Świrski has developed is the patented system SILO- energy process optimizer using artificial immune system. The research co-authored by Konrad Świrski are focused on applying of artificial intelligence algorithms. After first successful tests in which artificial neural networks have been used, a unique method using artificial immune systems was finally applied. These new artificial immune systems, similar to the human immune system opened up new opportunities for regulate and optimize energy processes. Thanks to this unique technology, it becomes possible to significantly improve the optimal regulation of a nonlinear process with dozens of control variables. The method applied for the first time in the world has produced documented results (implementation on many facilities in Poland and abroad) – usually in the form of efficiency improvement within the range of 0.2 – 0.8% and reduction of NOx emissions within the range of 10-30%.  System SILO has been presented during EXPO 2017 in Astana (Kazakhstan) as a part of Best Energy Practices Pavilion
