Robots are now widely used in surgical procedures, but they are still not autonomous. Human surgeons must operate these robots, and humans can do a better job operating robots if they get a sense of touch feedback, says robotics researcher Allison Okamura. At TEDxStanford, she explains how engineers are developing ways for surgeons to feel what a robot is doing, technology that will greatly improve dexterity and accuracy in surgery, and has wide implications for all robotics.
