Welcome to our project
Our goal is to release an AI Mobile App to help in the rapid-detection of COVID-19, and make a huge impact to relief the pain of millions of people all over the World, currently fighting or suffering the impact of this pandemic.
We expect to help reducing the time required for diagnosis of COVID-19 by delivering a smartphone App which can discriminate between coughs of a potentially infected patient, and a normal cough. Our rationale behind the project is:
- The emergence of automated cough audio analysis and research (a curated list of relevant articles is available below).
- The advances in Deep Learning in the latest years, which enable unprecedented pattern inference by successive transformation of raw data.
- The emerging trend on Smartphone AI applications, which could be used on-site by anyone to help the lives of millions worldwide.
