Virufy is a global nonprofit research organization developing an AI-powered app to rapidly detect COVID-19 from cough recordings. Once approved by public health authorities, our algorithm will be deployed to enable mass-scale, anonymous testing to slow virus spread and bring an end to the pandemic. With Virufy, we are building the world’s largest and most trusted nonprofit smartphone-based data collection platform. Our team members are distributed across 20 countries and we are endorsed by Stanford advisors.
