We have received a lot of questions regarding the Sync Project, and decided to answer the most burning ones in this blog post. Read it to get an overall look at what we are doing at the moment and why.
Our software engineering and machine learning focused team has been growing. We’re now nine people and today we moved to our new office in Boston. Its a former gallery space in the Leather District right by South Station. The entire team still fits on one long table and the first soundtrack we played in the new space was by Jon Hopkins.
Sync Project CEO Marko Ahtisaari gave a keynote speech about design, science and music, and also shed some light on "the big picture" here at Sync at the Interaction 16 Conference in Helsinki. He pointed out that while there is an intuition that music moves us and improves our health in addition strong directional evidence in science, no one has built a platform to measure the biometric effects of music listening at scale.
We’re excited to announce a research partnership with HINTSA Performance, one of the world’s leading coaching companies focused on performance improvement.
Our first study will examine how the Sync Project’s personalized music platform can improve athletic performance in high intensity interval training. During the course of the study, elite athletes working with HINTSA Performance will be monitored conducting their interval training to music while using our platform and a custom-designed music-biometric mobile app.
