In his keynote, “The Future of Robot-Assisted Surgery,” Goldberg will describe how machine learning, coupled with data collected from surgical robots such as Intuitive’s da Vinci system, can be used to learn underlying robot control policies for common surgical tasks. He will also review recent research advances with applications to cutting, suturing, palpation, dissection, retraction, and debridement.
