The app that detects covid-19 from voice/cough audio

This pandemic has called for the utmost ingenuity of all people around the world to come to play in developing various innovations to tackle this pandemic at various sectors.

A group of engineers, AI experts and researchers in several countries are urgently working to develop a mobile phone application to rapidly and accurately assess whether the speaker shows indications of covid-19. These experts plan to utilize the advanced audio capture and processing power of smartphones to analyse audio from coughs and spoken test phrases to match individual micro-characteristics against a large database they are gathering and building.
