EIHW-MTG DiCOVA 2021 Challenge System Report

  title={EIHW-MTG DiCOVA 2021 Challenge System Report},
  author={Adria Mallol-Ragolta and Helena Cuesta and Emilia G'omez and Bj{\"o}rn Schuller},
This paper aims to automatically detect COVID-19 patients by analysing the acoustic information embedded in coughs. COVID-19 affects the respiratory system, and, consequently, respiratory-related signals have the potential to contain salient information for the task at hand. We focus on analysing the spectrogram representations of coughing samples with the aim to investigate whether COVID-19 alters the frequency content of these signals. Furthermore, this work also assesses the impact of gender…

DiCOVA Challenge: Dataset, task, and baseline system for COVID-19 diagnosis using acoustics

The challenge features two tracks, one focusing on cough sounds, and the other on using a collection of breath, sustained vowel phonation, and number counting speech recordings, and a baseline system for the task is presented.

A Hierarchical Attention Network-Based Approach for Depression Detection from Transcribed Clinical Interviews

The authors' results indicate that hierarchical contextual attention networks are the most suitable configuration to detect depression from transcripts, surpassing a Recurrent Neural Network that does not use attention.

Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition

This work presents a residual learning framework to ease the training of networks that are substantially deeper than those used previously, and provides comprehensive empirical evidence showing that these residual networks are easier to optimize, and can gain accuracy from considerably increased depth.

Hierarchical Attention Networks for Document Classification

Experiments conducted on six large scale text classification tasks demonstrate that the proposed architecture outperform previous methods by a substantial margin.
