COVID-19 Detection Through Speech

Researchers MIT's Lincoln Laboratory have identified a way to recognise COVID-19 in asymptomatic people by analysing their speech patterns. The theory that the constriction of muscles caused by a COVID-19 infection could affect speech in otherwise asymptomatic people was put to the test by analysing speech from video interviews of asymptomatic celebrities before and after their postive diagnosis. The researchers found a decrease in speech complexity within 10 milisecond increments of the sampled speech of the asymptomatic subjects. (H/T to Mikael for sharing this.)
