Key Quantitative Results

  • We provide empirical evidence that the measured heart rate is 75% -- 85% correlated to the ground truth with an average error of 7.5 BPM.
  • We demonstrate the practicality of MusicalHeart by deploying it in two real world scenarios and show that MusicalHeart helps the user achieve a desired heart rate intensity with an average error of less than 12.2%, and its quality of recommendation improves over time.
