The latest AI model can tell if Your Cough Is Covid

 - COVID-19 - Nov 2 SHARE ON:

Even if a coronavirus patient has no obvious signs, their cough typically sounds slightly different from the cough of a healthy person due to the effect of the virus on the lungs and vocal cords of patients.  

In order to design an algorithm that listens to these subtle variations, which are normally inaudible to the human ear, MIT scientists used artificial intelligence. According to a study which looked at thousands of user-submitted forced cough recordings over the spring, their model correctly identifies coronavirus patients 98.5 percent of the time, and it is accurate 100 percent of the time when patients are asymptomatic.

Couple become the first in the world to get legally married over Zoom

 - COVID-19 - Nov 2 SHARE ON:

Scott Marmon, from New York, and Augustina Montefiori, from Argentina, have been together since they first met in Denver in May 2017, but have been a long distance in the last year since Augustine returned to Buenos Aires. 

Scott planned to move to Argentina in January before the Covid-19 crisis shut down the borders. The pair were unable to reunite because they weren’t a married couple, so they planned to get married via video call at a 19-hour ceremony last week.
