Medical Robotics: into the operating theatre
In our first episode, we’ll chat to researchers about how robotics is revolutionising medicine and surgery. I’m joined by Dr James Chandler (STORM Lab, University of Leeds) and Dr Stamatia Giannarou (Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London) to talk about the exciting world of medical and surgical robotics and find out what they’ve been working on.
Robot Talk is a brand new podcast that sits down with some of the UK's top robotics researchers and asks them questions like, "How does that work?", "What's better, legs or wheels?", and "How soon can I get one of these robots in my house?".
Hosted by Claire Asher, Robot Talk explores the science and technology behind everything from robotic surgery to planetary rovers and self-driving cars, on the last Friday of every month.
