Doctorando en el Grupo de Instrumentación y Acústica Aplicada, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM)

Luis Gascó is a research assistant at Technical University of Madrid. He got a degree in Telecommunications Engineering, specialising in Sound and Image, at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, in 2013. He obtained a MSc In Acoustic Engineering at Technical University of Madrid, in 2014, and a Master in Big Data and Business Intelligence at Escuela de Organización Industrial, in 2016. Currently, he is a doctoral student at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and EIT Digital Doctoral School, where he is looking for new uses of ICTs in Noise Management Systems in cities and transport infrastructures, specifically he applies Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies to include the opinions of people’s in Social Media to the noise policy-making process.
