Stress is a feeling of emotional and physical tension, that poses as a risk factor in many diseases, for example the nervous, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular or gastrointestinal system. Fast and easy detection could be a first step in order to help people manage their stress-levels. This paper depicts an ongoing work in the domain of stress prediction with Heart Rate Variability related features by classifying two different levels on the Stress-Predict Dataset. The performance of different clas- sifiers was tested with Leave-One-Subject-Out Cross Validation and compared to each other. The best performance was reached with the Aggregated Mondrian Forest Classifier and a mean balanced accuracy of 97.87%.
