New Artificial Intelligence System Can Detect Coronavirus by Cough Sounds

Scientists developed a new artificial intelligence system they say can tell if someone has COVID-19 just by the sound of their cough.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers said the algorithm is able to detect the virus because the illness causes muscle impairment that can alter the way people speak or cough even if they are asymptomatic, the Telegraph reported.

The researchers wrote in a paper published in the IEEE Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology that they tested the new technology on 4,000 recordings of people forcing themselves to cough.
