This paper presents an inception-based deep neural network for detecting lung diseases using respiratory sound input. Recordings of respiratory sound collected from patients are first transformed into spectrograms where both spectral and temporal information are well represented, in a process referred to as front-end feature extraction. These spectrograms are then fed into the proposed network, in a process referred to as back-end classification, for detecting whether patients suffer from lung-related diseases. Our experiments, conducted over the ICBHI benchmark metadataset of respiratory sound, achieve competitive ICBHI scores of 0.53/0.45 and 0.87/0.85 regarding respiratory anomaly and disease detection, respectively.
