Computer scientists from the University of Helsinki in Finland have developed a sleep analysis software which translates data based on sleep patterns into a song by placing sensors underneath a participant’s mattress. The software measures body movement, heart rate, and breathing, compressing an entire night’s sleep into a few minutes of audio data.
Although the final output is interpretive, the project is interesting because it creates a novel way for us to experience sleep data and helps understand it in a new way.
According to the University of Helsinki‘s website, their study, titled Sleep Musicalization: Automatic Music Composition from Sleep Measurements, will be presented at the International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis which takes place from October 25-27th.
