Participants can learn about and experience medical robotics, remote physician services, and the IBM Watson artificial intelligence medical program. At an interactive session, participants will see augmented reality systems, robotic physician assistants, wireless ultrasound, robotic surgical systems, and remote patient assistant devices.
