Developers test app that can diagnose COVID by analyzing a cough
After nearly a year of living with the coronary virus, most people no longer seem to be stressed after every sneeze or cough or sore throat. But there are still many who are worried about catching the virus, and with the United States locking up 90,000-100,000 new cases a day and Britain a second time, this is not the time to declare victory and stop wearing masks.
Researchers are considering distributing a free AI-based screening app and working with hospitals to expand the pool of cough recordings for future testing. Cough-based models can be terminated from smart speakers and digital assistants such as Siri, Google Assistant and Alexa for daily analysis. For the accuracy required to make the technology worth using, tests should be performed on devices with a high-quality microphone. Privacy issues will need to be addressed.
Opening an application, asking a subject about a cough, and getting a quick response to whether he or she has COVID will go a long way in eliminating the disease.
