Speak Up And Help Beat COVID-19

The title of this post, is the name of a research project, which is described on this page of the government web site.

This is the first paragraph.

We are seeking volunteers to take part in a study at the forefront of new and emerging science and technology.

Basically, you’re asked to record a few sounds including a cough and then AI attempts to decide, whether you have the dreaded covids or not. As you are invited to take this test soon after a full test for the covids, it’s quite easy for any intelligent computer, as she will look you up in the database.

The idea, is to see whether diagnosis is possible from a cough.

But then doctors have been asking Army recruits to cough since Wellington’s time.

Do they ask ladies to cough or is that now considered transphobic?
