Get to know the COVOICE-19 Project

COVOICE-19 is a research project focused on exploring how Artificial Intelligence can help us in providing an early diagnosis of COVID-19, as well as in supporting medical professionals in the prognosis of the disease. Ultimately, the goal is to mitigate the spread of the disease through rapid screening, while providing predictive decision-support for improved hospital resource management and prognosis.

The project has been funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology in the context of the AI 4 COVID-19 call. It is led by UNINOVA - Centre of Technology and Systems, with the participation of the Ocidental Lisbon Hospital Center (CHLO), through the voice and infectiology units of the Egas Moniz Hospital.
