“Vocals for Science” awarded and supported by the “Solution Enabler” Program of the Federal Government of Germany
Vocal biomarkers have an amazing potential in reforming diagnostics through their accuracy, speed and cost-effectiveness. The Federal Government of the Federal Republic of Germany has announced, that “Vocals For Science” will be supported within the Solution Enabler Programm over the next months.
The Solution Enabler is an implementation program of the Federal Republic of Germany where promising solutions and selected teams are now supported to quickly test solutions against the effects of Covid-19 and implement them on a broad scale. The program will initially run for a six-month period. However, the aim is to implement the solutions as quickly as possible.
“We are very delighted about this award and are grateful that the jury has chosen us to participate in the program. After the initial digital #WIRvsVIRUS hackathon, which set a new world record in terms of the number of participants, we are now taking the next step in the development of the algorithm together with the German Government, the project partners and our development team”, Philip Mertes & Dirk Simon passionately proclaim.
About Vocals For Science
Vocal biomarkers have an amazing potential in reforming diagnostics through their accuracy, speed and cost-effectiveness. We’re studying the correlation between respiratory diseases and vocal biomarkers like voice, breathing and coughing noises in Germany & Europe.
We believe that by analyzing the voice, breathing and coughing noises beyond what our ears can hear, we can unveil correlations that would enable the healthcare sytem to detect COVID-19 indepentend of locations in a fast and cost-effective way using the everyday technology that is in our smartphones.
With are developing Artificial Intelligence methods and technique to correlate the voice with the symptoms of the COVID-19. The study is being conducted under scientific standards and with highest German Data Protection standards.
Join us now and help to fight COVID-19 by donating your voice for the science.
