Collaborative robots will shape the future of medicine

Robots are being increasingly utilized in the medical field. But this is not new. For over 30 years, they have been supporting patient care in healthcare facilities worldwide. Perhaps the best-known robot-based system from this “pioneer era” is the da Vinci Surgical System. Despite this “tradition,” however, the age of medical robotics has only just begun, as a new breed of sensitive and collaborative robots is poised to shape the future of robotics in medicine.

The latest robotics market stats confirm growth in all sectors hits two figures.

The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) is the primary global resource for data on robotics. While the worldwide figures on industrial robotics are considered to be accurate, those for service robotics are seen only as trend indicators and are often underestimated

This is when AI’s top researchers think artificial general intelligence will be achieved

At the heart of the discipline of artificial intelligence is the idea that one day we’ll be able to build a machine that’s as smart as a human. Such a system is often referred to as an artificial general intelligence, or AGI, which is a name that distinguishes the concept from the broader field of study. It also makes it clear that true AI possesses intelligence that is both broad and adaptable. To date, we’ve built countless systems that are superhuman at specific tasks, but none that can match a rat when it comes to general brain power.

Big Data, AI and Robotics: Buzz or Societal Issue

While the technological developments in Artificial Intelligence offer new opportunities for big data analysis; While the rampant implantation of sensors and connected objects multiplies the capacity of data capture in our professional and personal environments, public or private; Whereas robotics is both a sensorimotor system for collecting data that can feed the progress of Artificial Intelligence and the embodiment of artificial intelligence, which can put it into action in the physical world;
The stakes have become very high and public and private organizations are gearing up to capitalize on the opportunities raised by these new technologies, anticipate their impacts, and better regulate their use.

Challenge #2 – Clean Water: an example of robotics solution – Robotic Ocean Cleanup Arrays

Boyan Slat has launched the Ocean Cleanup Foundation to develop safe methods of cleaning the billions of tons of plastic that humans have dumped into the world’s oceans, where they are poisoning the food chain. His solution involves arrays of booms that would direct small plastic particles into robotic collection platforms.
