Abstract: Respiratory diseases cause an immense socio-economic impact and are the third leading cause of death worldwide. Therefore, a great amount of research has been focused on the auscultation and characteristics of cough and respiratory sounds, as they are valuable indicators of respiratory health and respiratory disorders. This presentation will focus on the main challenges we face on the development of an automated classification system for the discrimination of cough and adventitious respiratory sounds.
