Buttons and levers are not the right way to control robots in real time. Even voice control may be too clumsy to cause the robot to perform the desired action. The aim of a current research project is to control robots directly through the thoughts of the operator. Thus, the robots should learn to understand and interpret humans.
Researchers at MIT (Cambridge, MA) say they have developed a new way to power and communicate with devices implanted deep within the human body.
Wearable devices, secure online consultations, and remote procedures like robotic surgery will improve resource efficiency and meet consumer demands for greater convenience and freedom of choice. This technological transformation of the healthcare sector offers numerous opportunities for telecom operators to penetrate new value chains and initiate partnerships that benefit the entire ecosystem.
