    Lasik is a good example of where the sophistication of AI is sufficient to perform the surgery without much human interaction. Eventually we're going to see other major surgeries done like that. Which is a good thing -- the sophistication of medicine and the overall progress of society are tightly linked.

    Today, a surgeon; in a few decades, probably a robot.

    My favorite medical robot is the lasik machine. It tracks the movement of your eyeball 4,000 times each second to compensate for the eye's movement. While tracking this movement, it re-positions the cutting laser to the new location. Despite the constant movement of the eyeball, it maintains precision to the length of a single cell for the duration of the procedure.

    I would not trust any human to track the movement of my eyeball even one time each second, while simultaneously aiming a laser
    I was about to mention LASIK. Pretty phenomenal capabilities.

    I just "feel" more connection with a person than a robot. However if i trusted the robot more, i'd maybe go with the robot... after all, some robots are awesome.

    If there was some hard proof showing, say:
    risks using robots 1 in 1000 chances of something bad happen
    risks using humans 1 in 200 chances of something(equally) bad happen
    Then I'd pick the robot. Sorry if I sound like Mr Obvious.

    This would be the case regardless of who or what is performing the surgery

    As a few others have mentioned, I, too, would rather have a human surgeon who is equipped with the best AI tools than just a human surgeon or just a robot.

    I'm pretty sure that hospitals are equipped with emergency electricity. If not..well I'm imagining the state of the morgue.

    I think... I would rather have a robot, honestly. But with a human overseeing everything, or even utilizing it. I like the idea of cold, calculated precision.. but robots, I feel, will never have the intuition of a experienced, well trained human. At least, not in my lifetime.

    Humans can still operate by candlelight!

    I wouldn't want the power to go out in the middle of lasik surgery on my eyeball.
