Ann Majewicz Fey - From Tool to Assistant: Towards Developing Adaptive Surgical Robots for the Operating Room
From Katie Gentilello
Human-generated, preventable errors, particularly those made intra-operatively, can lead to morbidity and mortality for the
patient poor training outcomes for residents, and high costs for the hospital. Surgical robotic systems could be designed to avoid these
errors and improve training outcomes by interpreting, reacting to, and assisting human behavior. This talk will describe some novel datadriven
methods to predict, in real-time, surgical style, expertise levels, and task difficulty; as well as present new systems that could be
used to assist with surgical intervention or training in a variety of domains.
