Inspiration The new COVID-19 virus is testing our countries, our societies and all of us human beings. 3 billion people are now living under lockdown with no clarity on when we can bring normalcy to our lives. Our lives are on hold, our livelihood threatened and our mental health under stress.

In this critical moment, our question was how can we work together to solve one of the biggest crises of our lifetime?

We started a few weeks ago to gather different expertise people from around the world around a common cause to use technology and big data to improve diagnosis. As some of our team members are highly skilled in voice recognition, we came up with a concept for voice diagnostics: just provide your voice and cough samples by speaking into your smartphone microphone or computer microphone, and have the software instantly give you a pre-diagnosis!

Our vision is to become the most convenient and effective way for diagnostics and healthcare!

How I built it

We worked closely with pulmonologists and virologists to create a survey of questions that we need to ask to identify COVID-19 patients and we end up with a final survey. We started collecting data of COVID-19 patients as well as healthy people to train the machine.

Challenges I ran into

2 big challenges: Collecting a sufficient amount of training data to generate models that will give highly accurate inference results Creating the right instructions for recording voice data. Many patients were recording unclear sounds, and our team spent many hours cleaning the data (the initial voice samples). Challenges in voice recognition pattern

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Winner - Hack for Crisis Italy Winner - Hack for Crisis Sweden One of top 10 entries - Hack for Crisis Norway Have inspired many people to continue working in the project after their initial hackathon participation

What I learned

People are inspired to work together to act when there is a strong common cause and the stronger the cause, it is easier and faster to inspire more people to join! (We are 40+ people from 10+ countries - Started 3 weeks ago, experts in Health, Machine Learning, Marketing, Business, Product, Tech, Compliance,..)

Thousands of people around the world are interested to find solutions to deal with our current situations!

Hey everyone! Here Chiara from VOICEMED team.

VoiceMed utilises AI e ML to diagnose if a person is affected by COVID19 or not with vocal recognition and others surveys symptoms! Have a look on our video explanation! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7A-teMVHjRw&feature=youtu.be Now we developed a web prototype to collect datas and we’re developing a call product(voicemed.io).

We got 1st place in hack for Italy, 1st place in Sweden , 10th place in Norway and 8th place in Global Hack!

VoiceMed would like to onboard more people with the spirit of fighting against Covid!
