Medical robot research ushered in a golden age!

Since its establishment in 1880, Science has developed into the world’s top journal for more than 200 years and has become one of the most authoritative academic journals in the world. The “Science” journal family is also growing, in addition to the existing Science, Science Advances, Science Immunology, Science Signaling, Science TranslatioIn addition to the journal Medicine, the “Science” journal family is welcoming a new member: Science Robotics.

Whether working independently or in collaboration with humans,robotis becoming ubiquitous. They travel far away in space, explore mysterious oceans, they are our doctors and our drivers, and they are integrating into our daily lives. We urgently need a platform on which we can deliver the latest technological advances in the field of Robotics, discuss Robotics ethical issues and policy issues, and conduct in-depth social criticism. To that end, we started the journal Science Robotics. As a member of the Science journal family, Science Robotics maintains the quality of Science as always, and is open to both scientific researchers and the general public. It is interdisciplinary, covering both traditional robotics disciplines and emerging trends in robotics, such as the latest materials and biomimetic designs. It focuses on robots of all sizes, from massive computing systems to micro/nano-scale robots. It has a broad field of view, with theoretical progress on par with practical applications; and is able to facilitate the reproducibility of experiments, online supplementary materials, and the development of design/code libraries. We welcome all researchers working in the field of robotics – both established researchers and pioneers – to join us in rewriting the history of robotics for the benefit of humanity.
-Guang-Zhong Yang and Marcia McNutt
This text appeared on the official website of the journal Science in the form of “Editor’s Notes” by two scientists: Marcia McNutt and Guang-Zhong Yang.
Marcia McNutt
Marcia McNutt, editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals in 2013, was elected president of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in February this year. McNutt’s main research area is marine geophysics, and she has carved out her own territory in the competitive scientific community: she is the first female editor-in-chief in the history of Science journals, and she is also the first female president in the history of the National Academy of Sciences.
Another Chinese scientist, Guang-Zhong Yang, also has an extraordinary experience. In 1982, Yang Guangzhong was admitted to the Department of Automation of Shanghai Jiaotong University. Four years later, he was admitted to the Institute of Image Processing and Pattern Recognition of Shanghai Jiaotong University for a master’s degree. Professor Guangzhong Yang is the co-founder and director of the Hamlyn Centre, which specialises in Robotic surgery, and the vice-chairman of the Institute for Global Health Innovation. Professor Yang holds an important academic position at Imperial – he is Director and Founder of the Royal Society/Wolfson Medical Image Computing Laboratory, Wolfson Surgical Technology Laboratory ( Co-founder of the Wolfson Surgical Technology Laboratory and chairman of the Centre for Pervasive Sensing.
Professor Yang’s main research areas are in three areas: medical imaging, sensing, and robotics. In medical imaging, Professor Yang has made breakthroughs in novel magnetic resonance phase contrast imaging and computer modeling techniques that have transformed the quantification and visualization of blood flow in vivo, including the development of locally focused imaging techniques combined with the use of real-time navigation echoes to resolve high-resolution coronary Respiratory motion problems in arteriography. At the same time, Prof. Yang received the ISMRM I. I Rabi Award for his outstanding achievements in dynamic flow-pressure mapping. He pioneered the concept of perceptual docking for robot control, which represents a paradigm shift in robotic learning and knowledge acquisition, as well as robotic perception/cognitive behavior. Moreover, in the research field of Body Sensor Network (BSN), Professor Yang has developed a universal, intelligent and contextualized personalized wireless monitoring platform. Professor Yang Guangzhong was named one of the 100 most important scientists in British Science by Time magazine.
The Hamlyn Centre at Imperial College London, founded by Yang Guangzhong, focuses on robotic surgery.
On October 21, 2015, during Xi Jinping’s visit to the UK, he visited the Hamline Research Centre of Imperial College London. Yang Guangzhong told Xi how Imperial College’s research could help doctors use cheaper and more precise medical robots to serve patients.
When it comes to surgical robots, the first thing that comes to our mind is probably the “da Vinci” surgical robot (da Vinci). However, Professor Yang Guangzhong believes that today’s surgical robots, including “Da Vinci” robots, lack intelligence and pertinence. In our May article, foreign media was swiped by this intelligent surgical robot that surpassed Da Vinci. Surgeons please quickly watch: Although “Da Vinci” is currently the most advanced soft tissue robotic surgery system in the world, “Da Vinci” “As an auxiliary surgical robot, it is an extension of the surgeon’s hand. The entire operation is completed under the control of the doctor. “Da Vinci” does not have the ability to complete the operation autonomously.
In view of the shortcomings of current surgical robots, Professor Yang Guangzhong proposed the development goals of future medical robots – “To sense, to act, to adapt, to learn, to evolve, to be intelligent, to disappear” (perceive, manipulate, adapt, learn , evolution, intelligence, and finally integration with people).
