“Robotics and AI are often seen as promising tools to overcome many of the challenges the current healthcare system is facing. However, side-effects of increased digitalization of our healthcare system abound. Fosch-Villaronga and Drukarch provide much needed definitions and illustrations of the current state of research, discuss actual implementations of robotics and AI within the healthcare system, and offer a prediction of future technical developments for healthcare. Their concise overview is rich in literature and establishes a great foundation for anyone interested in AI, robotics, and healthcare!” -- Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of St. Gallen
