If one word was needed, to describe many gadgets at CES 2017, it would be “over-engineered” - companies that build a product, to solve a problem that never existed in the first place. Part of me believes that this AI-enabled toothbrush, known as Ara falls into that category.

Now, while sensory learning isn’t technically AI - rather just the automated version of your mum saying “you missed a spot,” the idea is a neat one. Especially when it comes to encouraging good brushing habits from a young age.

I get it. We’re all scared in the wake of the tragedy in Westminster last Wednesday. Khalid Masood’s actions in committing this atrocity are truly reprehensible. But digital communication is not at fault, and adding an Orwellian level of surveillance is not the answer.
