From AI to Robotics

Currently, there are two thing defining the medical world: robotics and AI. No matter the sphere, all of the interviews this month are related in some way to these two hot topics.

Speaking of hot topics: Be sure to take a closer look at MEDICA Deep Dives on these subjects, or better yet, dive in and register now for the expert talks!


Have you heard of on-demand robotics? It’s a little simpler than other robotic systems, but that’s why it’s also interesting for smaller clinics. Prof. Hanno Matthaei and Dr. Jan C. Arensmeyer have summarized the advantages of such a system.


Many pharmaceutical companies are withdrawing from antibiotic research because it is very expensive and therefore economically unattractive. But antibiotic resistance is a major problem. We can’t always prevent pathogens from becoming resistant, but we can tackle the problem from the other end: by simplifying the development of active ingredients. This is the intention behind a new robotics platform.

And speaking of research: A good research infrastructure plays a crucial role in pandemic prevention. Prof. Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann, expert for environmental medicine, has concrete examples of how we can improve this.


AI in healthcare is on everyone’s lips. But does it also reach those who use artificial intelligence in their everyday work? A survey among medical and nursing staff has provided answers to this very question. Tips on how to integrate AI in your hospital in a meaningful way and bring your staff along with you shares Prof. Dr. Karin Wolf-Ostermann, Head of Nursing Care Research, Universität Bremen.


Gamification is the magic word, especially when working with children. In order to simplify the therapy but also train the motor skills of children with Rett syndrome properly, the most modern technologies were combined in a project. Technical and psychological insights gives the project leader of Fraunhofer Gesundheit.

“The need for well-trained orthopaedic technology professionals is increasing both in the industry and in patient care.”

…says the president of HAWK Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaft und Kunst Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen Dr. Marc Hudy in our interview. With the new Orthobionics degree program, graduates are expected to bring scientific and practical knowledge to the workplace. Starting with the winter semester of 2023, we will tell you why Göttingen (Germany) is the place to be.
