Exploring Automatic COVID-19 Diagnosis via voice and symptoms from Crowdsourced Data

02/10/2021 ∙ by Jing Han, et al. ∙ 0

The development of fast and accurate screening tools, which could facilitate testing and prevent more costly clinical tests, is key to the current pandemic of COVID-19. In this context, some initial work shows promise in detecting diagnostic signals of COVID-19 from audio sounds. In this paper, we propose a voice-based framework to automatically detect individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. We evaluate the performance of the proposed framework on a subset of data crowdsourced from our app, containing 828 samples from 343 participants. By combining voice signals and reported symptoms, an AUC of 0.79 has been attained, with a sensitivity of 0.68 and a specificity of 0.82. We hope that this study opens the door to rapid, low-cost, and convenient pre-screening tools to automatically detect the disease.
