Artificial Intelligence is becoming more sophisticated at doing what humans do, but more efficiently, quickly, and cheaply. Both AI and robotics have enormous potential in healthcare. AI and robotics are increasingly becoming a part of our healthcare eco-system, just as they are in our daily lives

Artificial intelligence and robotics have already proven to be prevalent in the healthcare industry. AI and robotics can ensure a faster roll-out date as well as an efficient and accurate operation, from providing personal care to patients to automating the drug production process.

As India prepares for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the rate of adoption of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and analytics, has increased manyfold. According to a 2018 study by a leading job portal, India saw a 186 percent increase in the number of job seekers in the field of robotics, while job postings in the segment increased by 191 percent.

“Robotics is one of the most exciting sectors emerging in India today. Sectors like construction, manufacturing and healthcare are boosting the demand for robotics talent, and there is enormous scope for the application of technology across an even wider array of industries,”  Sashi Kumar, Managing Director, Indeed, said

Currently, surgery is a key area of healthcare in India where robotics has been deployed. In this country, robotics assistants are used in both private and public hospitals.

Engineering R&D organisations play an important role in this, as their expertise in design, development, validation, and rapid prototyping can accelerate medical breakthroughs, while new product development and adaptive intelligence solutions can help lower barriers between hospitals and patients, particularly in India’s tier 2 and 3 cities.

Many experts believe that the future of AI and robotics is bright. However, artificial intelligence (AI) or robots will not take complete control of the healthcare industry anytime soon. Human intervention and supervision would still be required to ensure complete accuracy in the overall process.


Patients are also known to form stronger bonds with their doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel. This particular relationship gives patients the impression that they are not alone. Machines or robots will never be able to replicate this sensation. As a result, humans will always be present alongside AI and robotics to cure patients and provide a comforting and soothing experience.
