Entertainment Modeling in Physical Play Through Physiology Beyond Heart-Rate
An investigation into capturing the relation of physiology, beyond heart rate recording, to expressed preferences of entertainment in children’s physical gameplay is presented in this paper. An exploratory survey experiment raises the difficulties of isolating elements derived (solely) from heart rate recordings attributed to reported entertainment and a control experiment for surmounting those difficulties is proposed. Then a survey experiment on a larger scale is devised where more physiological signals (Blood Volume Pulse and Skin Conductance) are collected and analyzed. Given effective data collection a set of numerical features is extracted from the child’s physiological state. A preference learning mechanism based on neuro-evolution is used to construct a function of single physiological features that models the players’ notion of ‘fun’ for the games under investigation. Performance of the model is evaluated by the degree to which the preferences predicted by the model...
