Activ Surgical is building a platform to integrate machine intelligence into surgical robotics. While surgical robotics has advanced in the past decades, there is low range in the level of autonomy among systems. Activ aims to increase the level of autonomy while still keeping surgeons in the loop. Activ is developing software with the aim of integrating it into other companies’ robotic systems. They are integrating machine intelligence, computer vision and robotics, to catalyze a shift in robotic surgery to deliver better surgical outcomes.
