From nuclear research to surgery technology

A JRC invention initially stemming from its research in the nuclear sector will soon be used by hospitals for minimally-invasive robotic surgery. TELELAP ALF-X is an advanced multi-port robotic system that will empower surgeons with new technologies such as eye-tracking and haptics, allowing them eye-control of the camera and touch sensation during surgery. Hospitals will be able use the most advanced technology while running at low operational costs, as the system can use current surgical instruments.

More-flexible machine learning

Researchers have presented a new way of doing machine learning that enables semantically related concepts to reinforce each other. So, for instance, an object-recognition algorithm would learn to weigh the co-occurrence of the classifications ‘dog’ and ‘Chihuahua’ more heavily than it would the co-occurrence of ‘dog’ and ‘cat.’
