Many technologies have been proposed as coming in the future. How good were our predictions? This session looks at how close today's most futuristic technologies meet expectations. First the keynote speaker, CEO of one of the most inventive robotic companies, iRobot (of Roomba fame), will update us what commercial (and DoD) robots are doing. Then, in a joint session with SMIT, broadcasting live from Trondheim, Norway there will be a tour of one of the latest "OR of the Future" projects just completed and opening. Following the tour there will be a presentation of the latest advances in medical simulation technologies for clinical practice.
