SARS-CoV-2 Detection from Voice
Abstract: Automated voice-based detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) could facilitate the screening for COVID19. A dataset of cellular phone recordings from 88 subjects was recently collected. The dataset included vocal utterances, speech and coughs that were self-recorded... Read more
