This sickness-detecting AI may be able to accurately identify COVID-19 symptoms using cough recordings. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are currently honing in on an algorithm which is detecting the virus’ symptoms with a 98.5% success rate.

In a recently published paper, Brian Subirana, an MIT scientist working on the project explained that “The way you produce sound changes when you have COVID-19, even if you’re asymptomatic.” As stated in the same paper, once perfected, this AI could be used for a multitude of purposes, including “practical use cases could be for daily screening of students, workers and public, as schools, jobs and transport reopen, or for pool testing to quickly alert of outbreaks in groups.”
