Tiago Sanches Franco obtained the title of Bachelor in Computer Science from the Federal Technological University - Paraná (UTFPR) in Brazil from 2015 to 2019. During his graduation, he participated in the double degree agreement between UTFPR and the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB). With this agreement, he received the title of Master in Information Systems by IPB in 2019, studying large educational datasets for predicting school dropout. Later, he started working at the Center for Research in Digitization and Intelligent Robotics (CeDRI), continuing his studies in the Cognita Project. This project was completed at the end of 2020, having delivered a Big Data Analytics platform capable of monitoring and predicting students at risk of dropping out and a set of metrics related to education for the IPB. Tiago Franco began his doctorate at the University of Minho - Portugal in September 2020, with a scholarship funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). His main area of ¿¿research is Artificial Intelligence, focusing on big data analytics, data mining, and machine learning. He is now a member of the NanoStim project, and his current challenge is to develop medical decision support systems capable of assisting physiotherapists in developing an electrical stimulation treatment that adapts to the individual particularities of the elderly.
