Global Grand Challenges

Why are the best skilled surgeons using their own hands while doing very precise procedures in the human body? They have enhanced sight by using microscopes and 3D imaging, but they manipulate their scissors and knifes still with their hand motions. What an unbalance between sensing and actuation! Maarten Steinbuch will show us that this is going to change drastically. His goal is to achieve the level of super-surgeons by utilizing high tech robotics. Leverage our unique eco-system of the high-tech industry to realize this in an exponential pace and ultimately enable less skilled surgeons in rural areas all over the world to perform top class surgery.
