Oral-B adding AI to its latest toothbrush
The AI powering the GENIUS X has been trained with thousands of brushing behaviors, and so can identify your own unique brushing style. It can then figure out how that differs from best-practice, and begin coaching you on where you might improve. By tracking where, exactly, you’re brushing in your mouth, areas which may be neglected can be highlighted.
Typically, most people think they’re brushing for the recommended two minutes, but in fact on average they’re only doing 30-60 seconds of it. With the app, the company says, that’s stretched to 2 minutes and 22 seconds on average
The GENIUS X with Artificial Intelligence comes with a travel case, which can charge not only the toothbrush but a USB device like a smartphone.

Oral-B has sensors in toothbrushes being used as mini Tricorders of sorts, regularly monitoring each person and building a health profile that could be shared with their doctor, dentist, etc
Stephen Squire, global brand director for Oral-B, says of the AI toothbrush. “It is not a finished product. It is a vision that shall further enable pioneering work between dental professionals, external researchers and Oral-B scientists alike.
The Oral-B GENIUS X with Artificial Intelligence, meanwhile, will go on sale later in 2019,
