Smart Respiratory Sound Classification for Pulmonary Infiltrates Pre-Diagnosis

Coronavirus-related disease diagnosis system should be accurate and efficient. To improve the traditional diagnosis system, this project proposes not only a novel framework of deep neural networks-aid medical diagnosis system but also a large-scale respiratory sound data and label collection, Deep-SoundNet (DSN), to train the proposed system. Since the DSN contains three different types of labels, including the name of the disease, keywords, and clinical description, they can be exploited to train the system for automatic speech recognition (ASR). The main goal of this work is to serve as a benchmark to help the community in building a more accurate and efficient deep-learning-based automatic diagnosis system of coronavirus.
