The quality of a good sleep is important for a healthy life. Recently, several sleep analysis products have emerged on the market; however, many of them require additional hardware or there is a lack of scientific evidence regarding their clinical efficacy. We proposed a novel method via clustering of sound events for discovering the sleep pattern. This method extended conventional self-organizing map algorithm by kernelized and sequence-based technologies, obtained a fine-grained map that depicts the distribution and changes of sleep-related events. We introduced widely applied features in sound processing and popular kernel functions to our method, evaluated their performance, and made a comparison. Our method requires few additional hardware, and by visualizing the transition of cluster dynamics, the correlation between sleep-related sound events and sleep stages was revealed.
