Corona and Artificial Intelligence: the app should detect infections by the type of cough

About half a year ago, an American researcher presented a device that, in conjunction with an iPhone or Android smartphone, should detect an infection with SARS-CoV-2 – by coughing or sneezing. Since then, however, this special sensor has become quiet. In any case, contrary to what was announced at the time, the gadget has not yet come onto the market. A team of scientists has now developed a similar method that works without any additional hardware and only requires a special app.
