If you think your on-the-job training was tough, imagine what life is like for newbie surgeons. Under the supervision of a veteran doctor, known as an attending, trainees help operate on a real live human, who might have a spouse and kids--and, if something goes awry, a very angry lawyer. Now add to the mix the da Vinci robotic surgery system, which operators control from across the room, precisely guiding instruments from a specially-designed console. In traditional surgery, the resident gets hands-on action, holding back tissue, for instance. Robotic systems might have two control consoles, but attendings rarely grant residents simultaneous control.
It was the last question of the night and it hushed the entire room. An entrepreneur expressed his aggravation about the FDA's antiquated regulatory environment for AI-enabled devices to Dr. Joel Stein of Columbia University. Stein a leader in rehabilitative robotic medicine, sympathized with the startup knowing full well that tomorrow's exoskeletons will rely heavily on machine intelligence. Nodding her head in agreement, Kate Merton of JLabs shared the sentiment. Her employer, Johnson & Johnson, is partnered with Google to revolutionize the operating room through embedded deep learning systems.
When we think of breakthroughs in healthcare, we often conjure images of heroic interventions -- the first organ transplantation, robotic surgery, and so on. But in fact many of the greatest leaps in human health have come from far more prosaic interventions -- the safe disposal of human excrement through sewage and sanitation, for example, or handwashing during births and caesarians.

The versatility of the field makes it especially intriguing. Companies aren't competing for the same goal; they're attempting to create the own versions of robotics to conquer different world problems. Although the number of robotics startups seems grow every day, some are already having an impact while others are preparing to unveil exciting new products. We take snapshot of 10 companies that demonstrate the depth and breadth of the field.
