As per an ongoing UK study, “Algorithms can be used for recordings of coughs, and talking to detect COVID-19.
The study is conducted involving people recording themselves coughing within 72 hours of having a COVID-19 test and then uploading it to a special National Health Service website.
The idea of the study is that “using voice sounds to identify if someone is more likely to need a test could help us find more cases, and help slow the spread of COVID-19.”
Those taking part are asked to record the sounds of “a forced cough, breathing sounds and a defined sentence.”
There is also a warning to be careful when doing the recordings as “one of the voice sounds we will ask you to record is a forced cough – coughing is a potential risk to others around you.
“Please make sure that you only submit your voice sounds after you have left the testing site, when you are alone in either your vehicle or a room. Do not submit your voice sounds if you are in a vehicle or room with any other persons.”
The UK’s Department of Health and Social Care says the findings of the study into whether artificial intelligence (AI) can detect cases of COVID-19 “will be published in due course.”
A study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology academics published last year in the IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology concluded that AI techniques “can produce a free, non-invasive, real-time, anytime, instantly distributable, large-scale COVID-19 asymptomatic screening tool to augment current approaches in containing the spread of COVID-19.”
It said that “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.”

Role of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Industry
Considering the situation of COVID-19 pandemic around the world, Healthcare app development is the top mobile app technology trend that has completely ruled the year 2021 and is expected to grow at a faster pace the years following.
As per statistics, AI technologies shall bring in tremendous profits for the healthcare industry and increase by 50-55% by 2035. The AI technology makes use of machines to manage multiple tasks, helping healthcare facilities reduce the chances of errors & efficiently handle repetitive tasks over a period of time. Timely check-ups, X-Rays, CT-Scans, Ultrasounds, other test schedules that require human intervention, can easily be tackled with the help of AI.
The technologyI is seen to greatly impact the Healthcare sector in 2021 and beyond. Not only would it make healthcare more accurate at cheaper costs but would highly offer advantages over complex administration processes, lack of preventative care, and under-diagnosis and treatment.
AI-enabled systems have been used to track, predict, and support the allocation of patient acuity and availability of medical staff, ICU beds, operating rooms, and diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. So, it is no wonder that this technology would prove great in detecting COVID-19 symptoms remotely and offering appropriate treatment solutions.
