Algorithmic Optomization of Health

Logging and sorting through clustered heart rate data from the CSA Biomonitor Challenge

BioSpy YEG

Our goal was to make predictions based on the data from the Bio-Monitor competition. We developed an algorithm identifying passive and active behaviour based on heart rate data. Due to the constraints of space, astronauts have a sedentary lifestyle associated with many health complications like high blood pressure and bone degradation. The algorithm would identify daily activities with an ‘active’ health signature and suggest them in the future. For example, it would suggest other astronauts to ‘visit Chris Hadfield in the Canadian pod’ rather than ‘run on the treadmill for 5 minutes’. This will both promote cardiac health and camaraderie within the ISS.
