Study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Scientists from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) have confirmed that people infected with COVID-19 can be distinguished from those uninfected by the sound of their cough.
Teams of researchers from various universities then collected thousands of cough samples and used them to develop machine learning models that can identify an infected person’s cough.
However, all currently existing AI models for analyzing cough recordings for signs of COVID-19 are available only for research purposes and are not available for regular testing.
We have decided to use this discovery to create a free, instant, and accessible Covid Cough test for everyone. Together with our partners, we have collected cough samples and developed a machine learning model that identifies a sick person’s cough with high accuracy.
