3. E-cigarette company Juul could be working on an AI-powered device that helps users quit nicotine by learning their vaping habits over time, according to a patent application that was recently made public. The patent, titled "Devices and Methods for Cessation of Nicotine Addiction," describes a device that would work alongside a vaporizer to slowly lower a person's nicotine intake, alternating between nicotine and non-nicotine products when they inhale. The patent notes that the controller would utilize machine learning to adjust which product is delivered, based on the users' previous habits. That data could also be shared with the user's health care provider, friends, or other third parties to help them quit, it says. Juul, which applied for the patent last summer, is facing lawsuits and criticism over its alleged deceptive advertising, which critics say has contributed to a rise in young people vaping. - THE LOGIC
