Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics

Empowering robots with human-level intelligence represents one of the ultimate goals of robotics research. With increasing levels of autonomy for medical robotics, the regulatory, ethical and legal barriers imposed give rise to the need for careful consideration of different levels of autonomy, as well as the context for use.

The purpose of this workshop is to address the technical, regulatory, ethical and legal considerations for increasing levels of autonomy. In this workshop, we also aim at exploring the interaction between abstract and practical levels during a highly cognitive activity such as surgery. Starting from the review of today’s understanding of cognitive robotic surgery, we will further discuss the specific research challenges related to surgical workflow and process modeling, address its commercial perspectives, and the possibilities of its effective deployment in clinical practice.
