Workshop “Next Generation Surgery” – ICRA 2019″

Next Generation Surgery: Seamless integration of Robotics, Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation within the operating rooms

ICRA 2019 – May 24, 2019 – Montreal, Canada

ICRA2019

The use of surgical robots has -beyond doubt- led to advances and improvements in surgery. The next significant forward leap is expected with the introduction of intelligent systems that can operate autonomously, or semi-autonomously in cooperation with the surgeons. In this quest of intelligence, growing synergies from diverse scientific branches have emerged.
