Would You Trust a Robot Surgeon to Operate on You?

Goldberg believes that learning from demonstration is the only efficient approach. “We think robot learning is the most interesting area now,” he says, “because trying to program from first principles just doesn’t scale.” Of course, there are a multitude of tasks, and complicated ones might require the robot to crunch data from thousands of operations. But data is plentiful. Each year, surgeons do more than 500,000 procedures using the da Vinci, Goldberg notes. What if the surgeons shared the data from all those procedures (with privacy protection for the patients), allowing an artificial intelligence to learn from them? Every time a surgeon uses an assistive robot to successfully stitch up a wound in a kidney, for example, the AI could refine its understanding of that procedure. “The system could extract the data, improve its algorithms, fine-tune the task,” Goldberg says...
