Company builds AI toilets which can scan poo

A company is building AI toilets which can scan poop for disease.

Micron Technology, who develop microchips which power Artificial Intelligence, claims having loos which are able to pick up anything out of the ordinary in people's faeces through a robotic device, means they'll spend less time at the medical centre trying to work out what is wrong with them, as AI will be able to detect symptoms immediately.

According to, the company's CEO, Sanjay Mehrotra, said: "Medicine is going toward precision medicine and precision health.

"Imagine smart toilets in the future that will be analysing human waste in real time every day.

"You don't need to be going to visit a physician every six months.

"If any sign of disease starts showing up, you'll be able to catch it much faster because of urine analysis and stool analysis."

As well as being able to scan your waste, it will also carry data such as your DNA.
