Abstract:  Minimally invasive surgery has become the best practice for many surgical procedures due to its fast recovery and minimal damage to the patient, robotic surgery is also becoming more popular and offers the surgeon better ergonomics, stability of the line of sight, and fine movements. In this lecture, we will review recent technologies employed in robotic surgery for reducing the surgeon’s intensive labor and workload, image processing capabilities allow for autonomous movements of the camera during surgery, and 3D reconstruction for fast physical measurements. We will see how machine learning and scene understanding can further improve the surgical procedure.
