COVID-19 Artificial Intelligence Diagnosis using only Cough Recordings 200 200 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)
We hypothesized that COVID-19 subjects, especially including asymptomatics, could be accurately discriminated only from a forced-cough cell phone recording using Artificial Intelligence. To train our MIT Open Voice model we built a data collection pipeline of COVID-19 cough recordings through our website (opensigma.mit.edu) between April and May 2020 and created the largest audio COVID-19 cough balanced dataset reported to date with 5,320 subjects. read more
