Corona Voice Detect, is led by Dr. Shmuel Ur a renowned Israeli inventor and Dr. Alan Bekker, CTO & Co-founder at Voca.ai. The success of this project will have an immense impact on the health of our communities and prevention in spreading.
We’re starting with global data collection. With this data, we will be able to identify and develop technologies to determine the probability of being infected with the virus from voice analysis. The research and development effort is being conducted in collaboration with Professor Rita Singh from Carnegie Mellon University, and other researchers worldwide. Researchers will use this data to study and develop algorithms that will automatically detect COVID-19 and related illnesses from voice. These will potentially serve as rapid tests that can be performed over a phone or computer, and aid in the diagnosis of Coronavirus.
