With emerging technologies and immense growth in AI, will we need surgeons in the future? Won't machines and robots take over them?

Yes its very much possible. They already have robots that assists the surgeons, soon we'll have robots operating humans. This will increase the precision and surgery time will reduce drastically, hopefully.

Yes, I think that is possible as, humans need very high accuracy to operate many cases and that accuracy can be achieved by the robots. Robots can use all the possible test cases to ensure best test case is implemented.

According to me I think Robots can be a good replacement for doctors.

Yes. It is surely possible. I heard a great person once said: "Technology can do wonders". But I dont think its possible in the near future.

Its possible but i'm not sure if this would be a good idea. Surgeons learn the most will experience and i dont know how much can we trust the robots.

Yes, Surely possible. While training the datasets on robot, one should make sure that it is properly trained to perform surgery

Yes, I think its definitely possible. It's a scary thought but necessary at the same time when there is an ageing and growing population, as well as extensive medical staff shortages.

In a field where a slight slip of the surgical blade to the left or right by a millimeter could leave a patient paralyzed, perfectly precise robots could take over surgeons; but at the same time in cases of life and death, human instinct is undeniably necessary. So robots may not be able to replace surgeons but could definitely assist them.

Yes, this is possible. In fact there are many cases where robots have assisted in surgeries. But I believe this is unsafe because there have been multiple cases of patients losing their life and getting injured due to robot assisted surgeries.

Yes we will definitely need a surgeon or a doctor per say because as far as I think robots cannot diagnose a disease, in my view all the AI and robots are more of an assist to the doctors than they doing the surgery, because it's human life we are dealing with and a surgery comes with all kinds of unpredictable risks which can only be dealt by experience and quick thinking of a human, as an example aeroplanes have autopilot in them which makes the pilot's job of reaching long distance ease but at the time of landing they switch it of and it all comes down to the pilot's capabilities as it comes with a lot of adjustment to make and lot's of factors to think and adjust accordingly......so in my opinion it's the combination of both man and machine that will create wonders as it always have

It could be the other way too right? Robots do the surgery and the doctors overtake only when there's a situation that robots aren't pre-programmed to do. A lot of times there are situations where there are only a few seconds to make the right decision. And robots have higher processing speed and can make these decisions faster.
