Yes, we have read about a robot that can help combat malaria, with the potential for robots to provide a brighter future in the fight against the ebola virus, but here we are with a robot which is capable of performing brain surgery – through a very different means. This particular robot will go about its duty through the patient’s cheek, now how about that? Not just any brain surgery in general, but to make its way around corrective epilepsy brain surgery in particular, and doing so with a far lower risk than the normal method, not to mention in a less invasive manner.
While we do know that robots are extremely handy when it comes to automating the entire manufacturing process, are there other ways in which robots will be able to help humankind? The bitter fight against the ebola virus is on, and there is a remote possibility that robotic technologies which used to be deployed in rescue and disaster situations to be repurposed in order to help contain the Ebola epidemic.
