SARAS will develop a cognitive architecture able to make decisions based on pre-operative knowledge and on scene understanding via advanced machine learning algorithms.
Dexterity and perception capabilities of surgical robots may soon be improved by cognitive functions that can support surgeons in decision making and performance monitoring, and enhance the impact of automation within the operating rooms.
Performing ultrasound procedures from a remote site is a challenging task since both a stable behavior, for the safety of the patient, and a high-level of usability, to exploit the sonographer’s expertise, need to be guaranteed.
41st Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, EMBC 2019 July 2019
The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society is pleased to announce the 41st International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference, to be held in Berlin, Germany from July 23–27, 2019.
The overarching theme is “Biomedical engineering ranging from wellness to intensive care”.
The scientific tracks will cover the standard topics of the EMBS technical committees. Beside the scientific sessions, the congress exhibition will show biomedical companies, start-ups, biomedical institutes, universities, and provide networking opportunities for engineers, clinicians, other scientists, entrepreneurs and students.
Cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology and medical informatics will all be covered in this large conference.
Dexterity and perception capabilities of surgical robots may soon be enhanced by cognitive functions that can support surgeons in decision making and performance monitoring, and enhance surgical quality.

However, the basic elements of autonomy are not well understood and their mutual interaction is unexplored.
Next Generation Surgery: Seamless integration of Robotics, Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation within the operating rooms
ICRA 2019 – May 24, 2019 – Montreal, Canada
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.
