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.
Nawwww, I watch those all the time
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.
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.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
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.
