This seems crazy, but it has been very accurate.

Scientists at MIT have developed a system that can detect COVID-19 based on the sound of your cough. The artificial intelligence algorithm can detect subtle differences in the sound and vibrations of a cough, caused by muscle impairment caused by the virus – even in people that are asymptomatic.

Researchers say the AI system is 98.5% accurate in identifying positive cases.  The team is hoping to incorporate the system into an app before seeking FDA approval.

Do you think this system could work?  Will the future of medicine be apps on your phone?
