Can Amazon's Alexa Help Screen for COVID-19?

Dr. Abhinav Sharma has been testing Amazon’s Alexa to perform a first round of screening on patients and staff at the McGill University Health Centre.

“The preliminary results are very promising,” says Dr. Sharma. “The next step is to see if these devices can be used to screen for COVID in a workplace environment, or even at home.”

This project is made possible in part thanks to funding from the MUHC Foundation.
