This app is a beta software and is under heavy development. We appreciate your feedback.
Sleep apps often play soothing sounds such as binaural beats or white noise to help you sleep. No one really knows which sound technologies are optimal.
With your help, The Harmony Project by AcousticSheep can discover the most effective music, rhythms, and sound patterns to help listeners fall asleep faster. By rating what works for you, you help crowd source highly optimized sleep soundtracks.
We call our soundtracks Sheep. Each Sheep is encoded by a set of "genes" that control the song, background sounds, pitch, rhythm, and other such elements. Sheep rated highly would be allowed to "reproduce" and pass on their genetic material to successive generations of Sheep. This artificial intelligence system will progressively improve the soundtracks.
In the meantime, your part is easy.
- Download the app.
- Listen to a track designed to help lull you into sleep.
- Rate how well the track helped you sleep. (Choose from one to five stars--half star ratings are allowed.)
Your data is aggregated along with thousands of other citizen scientists to produce successively more effective generations of sleep soundtrack.
