How Virufy works

Cough icon
Record your cough and contribute to the global AI database.

Virufy is giving everyone across the world a chance to be part of the solution by sharing their unique coughs, which will be used to train the machine learning models. Donate your cough now!

Sound icon
AI can recognize respiratory disease signatures in cough sounds

COVID-19 damages the throat and lungs, causing microvariations in pitch, tone, and other audio signals, which machine learning can detect. Learn more in our research page.

App icon
A consortium of AI researchers will build the solutions.

Virufy is bringing together researchers from across the globe to expedite the solution by pooling together resources and knowledge. Please see our open data page
