Numerous fields and administrations are embracing smart robotics. Despite the vast advancements in robotics for health care, there is limited practice and examination on utilizing electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes, e-cigs, ENDS) and applied artificial intelligence (AI) to aid tobacco consumers to quit smoking. E-cigs and AI are certainly significant tools that have the potential in helping Americans reduce smoking. It can be valuable for society to determine if e-smoking (smoking e-cigs) is much safer and cleaner than traditional smoking.
