The coronavirus test application, developed by the Sberbank Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and claimed to have an accuracy rate of 82%, is now available for Android and iOS platforms.
Sberbank Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, together with SberMedII, a member of the Sberbank ecosystem, developed the AI Resp application that analyzes breathing and coughing sounds of a person with COVID-19 specific samples in a minute. The application can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store.
The AI model that forms the basis of this application has been trained on more than 3,000 anonymized records of COVID-19 patients and has reached 82% accuracy to date.
The user can use the service, for example, after visiting a risky area where they will not feel well, or after contacting someone with COVID-19. You must follow the audio recording technique according to the instructions for the application to work properly. It is also important to say that the application is not a diagnostic test and cannot replace conventional laboratory tests. So remember to consult a doctor if symptoms of COVID-19 occur.
The test takes place in 3 steps:
1- Hold the phone 20-30cm away from your face, cough several times while the timer is running.
2- Hold the phone 20-30cm away from your face, breathe loudly and exhale while the timer is running.
3- Hold the phone 20-30 cm from your face, click on the entry and say the suggested phrase.
Sberbank notes that Google and Apple app stores impose restrictions on developers who mention COVID-19 in the name, icon, and description of apps, so the AI Resp interface deals with respiratory diseases in general. However, it should be noted that the model is trained on breathing and cough samples from patients with COVID-19 and is designed to determine the characteristics of this particular disease.
