Will Robots Replace Surgeons? With Professor Shafi Ahmed

We're excited to be sharing a recording of our pre-lockdown #BigQuestion lecture held in March with Professor Shafi Ahmed, world-renowned surgeon and innovator. In this engaging lecture we explored how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence could revolutionise medicine and pave the way for more equitable surgical care across the globe, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch the recording on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKV5Ey1BX1Y
