Adaptive Audio for Health and wellbeing (AAH)

Sound and music can have a huge impact on our day to day lives, both positive and negative. Advances in portability and affordability of biosensors, in combination with developments in machine learning, suggest ways in which this impact might be measured, and deliberately mediated.

This project uses biosensors as well as more traditional HCI and psychological measurement techniques to inform algorithms in order to design meaningful control signals for music (generation, selection, or performance), and sound more broadly construed, for example video game sound effects, or real-world noise metering and mediation.

Dr Lina Gega, Department of Health Sciences and Hull York Medical School (HYMS) is a Co-I on this project.
