Machine Learning Can Detect Covid-19 In Less Than Five Minutes!


A cohort of researchers from world-renowned academic institutions such as the University of Oxford, University of Warwick, University of Montpellier and credible research labs, have invented a methodology of detecting Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) and other respiratory pathogens within mere minutes. This feat is made possible through the utilisation of image analysis and machine learning techniques, more specifically convolutional neural networks to classify microscopic viruses of respiratory diseases based on structural features unique to the viruses. It is entirely, understandable that some terms and phrases within this article might be unfamiliar to some readers, so, at some points in this article, some sections provide definitions to words and key terms used. Common types of pathogens are viruses, bacterias, fungi, prion, and parasites.
