    I wouldn`t trust a robot to do any kind of surgery on me! Especially if it was running windows, it would probably freeze up and it would get a blue screen of death or something else stupid like that

    That deeply scares me. A human doing a operation -- Scary. A ROBOT doing an operation -- even worse. seriously... what if it decides to go onto `auto-kill` mode! Argh! lolz

    Too many movies. x

    This robot should perform a brain surgery to Britney spears! Maybe that would help her think a bit!

    oh noes, now something else is gonna be one by a robot then other things will be done by robots and soon everything will be done by robots and we won`t need people to do jobs anymore and robots are gonna slowly take over until us inferior humans won`t exist anymore!

    I did not read the passage but I will emphasize that robots have already been performing millions of operations. This is especially true because of the use of a computer’s advancing technology.

    Omg yes, Y.3.K.

    This is great. A robot providing surgery, that means I won`t have to worry about my doctor forgetting to take out the scissors, or dropping a junior mint into my chest!

    No but really, Im hoping this will help for cost. Should be cheaper seeing as how you`re not paying for any rich chum`s time, right? .. .. right?

    But what would happen if something goes wrong with the patient? Such as they start bleeding out or any number of other complications occur. Can the robot deal with that kind of thing or does it need "specific orders from its operator."

    lol, that would be so harsh. If you trained at university and everything and finally got to degree only to discover...they dont need you anymore and youve been replaced by microsoft sam.

    that was the first time a robot has done it by themselves, what if they forgot to one little thing, it could mess up and it hasnt been tested on people before you... that guy has a lot of trust
