Visualizing Music Preferences: Using Physical Features in Images to Construct Preference Models

by Henry Zelenak

Welcome to my senior project for Fredonia University's Computer Science program.

This project aims to correlate your physical presentation with your music listening preferences, a correlation that you may or not be aware of. The point is not to tell you what you like, rather to tell you what you don’t yet like.

I started this project at the beginning of the Spring 2023 semester with no knowledge of the machine learning process and very minimal Python skills. By the end of the semester I had gained a solid understanding of how machine learning works and how to utilize Python for data science.
The end goal of the project is to produce a functional mobile application that can learn your appearance and music preferences over time, and provide you with insight about yourself that you might not otherwise be made aware of.
