Challenge Description and Goal:

The pathogenesis of COVID-19 is increasingly suggesting impairments in the respiratory system. In this light, it is natural to ask – Can sound samples serve as acoustic biomarkers of COVID-19? If yes, an acoustics based COVID-19 diagnosis can provide a fast, contactless, and inexpensive testing scheme, with potential to supplement the existing molecular testing methods, such as RT-PCR and RAT. The present Challenge is an exploration of ideas to find answers to this question.
