“Exploring the impact of robotics autonomy on future healthcare Autonomous Medical Robotics: A Bright Future or a False Hope?”

The Emergence of AI-Driven Medical Robotics entails:
 ● New synergies between AI and Medical Robotics;
 ● Trust and Transparency: Ensuring Safety in an Era of Autonomous Medical Robotics;
 ● Learning ability that robots are likely to gain in response to AI advancements.

The Forum will try to answer the question: how old and new AI will enable robots to solve critical healthcare and medical problems in society.
