You want to feel happy? Then listen to this song: Exploring the influence of music on the mood for training sessions

In this master topic we are interested in researching how people feel about songs, why they listen to a specific type of music and how music can change the mood with the help of sensor data and machine learning.
Master

Automatic analysis of audio signals of music using machine learning can give a lot of insight in human behaviour and feelings. Nevertheless, it is not well researched how additional sensor data could help to explore and explain the influence of music while train for a sport.
