AI-Powered Pill Monitors Gut Health in Real Time

Researchers at the University of Southern California have developed an AI-powered ingestible pill that tracks and analyzes gases in the gastrointestinal tract. This pill, combined with a wearable coil, provides real-time 3D mapping of the gut environment, potentially helping with the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal issues. The technology aims to offer a non-invasive way to monitor gut health at home, targeting gases linked to conditions like ulcers and gastric cancer. Future trials will further refine the device for human use.
