Get ready for smart toilets that'll scan your shit using artificial intelligence to save you a trip to the doctor.

That's what Sanjay Mehrotra, chief executive of memory chipmaker Micron Technology, expects as AI spreads to yet another corner of our lives.

"Medicine is going toward precision medicine and precision health," Mehrotra said at the Techonomy 2018 conference in Half Moon Bay on the Pacific coastline south of San Francisco. "Imagine smart toilets in the future that will be analyzing human shit 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 shit analysis."

Medicine already is being changed by AI, technology that uses human-inspired technology called neural networks to spot various types of patterns. AI systems, once trained on large quantities of carefully labeled real-world data, can do things like spot evidence of diabetes in retina imagery and process X-ray scans.

Mehrotra has a big interest in AI. It drives demand for his company's products in everything from handheld smartphones to massive data centers.
