The Research Insights project aims to raise awareness of the new technologies of autonomous surgical robotics, with informative video contents aimed to the general public.
We chose to communicate the ARS project through the words and the faces of our Research Team and to use the medium of short videos that in recent years is becoming prevalent. The contents are designed to answer the most common questions that can arise hearing about robotics, artificial intelligence, autonomy and ethics. The contents are issued on a weekly basis through our audience’s main channels: internet and the social media.
In this way, we hope to enlarge the debate between society and the academic world and to raise people’s awareness of this type of technology that will soon have an impact on everyone’s lives.
We hope you enjoy the view!
