Great, as if dentists aren’t critical enough of each other we will soon have an artificial intelligence telling us how bad our restorations are.

The developers claim that 80% of dental restorations are “sub optimal” and this algorithm will help find out why.

Despite my snark, I like the concept and will be interested to see if it actually works.
