LONDON, England (CNN) -- A London hospital has two new members of staff -- two robotic "doctors" that can carry out ward rounds in place of human physicians.


These robots look to be the future of medical-science. Perhaps if we can give them artificial intelligence they could surpass human doctors. Although there expensive I'd say the government will be buying lots of them. Doctors can't be happy about this though....The robots will probably replace them in the near future.

You read the article?


"Our robots certainly would never replace all doctors on ward rounds, but they are a communication tool, which allows a doctor to have direct contact with their patient if they are unable to get to them."


This is exactly the sort of thing this technology should be used for, and exactly the way it should be used. To facilitate the doctors, to make their lives easier, and to provide greater access between them and their patients. Good call.

88k isn't all that much, actually. Pricey, but less than I'd expect.

I don't care what the article says, I think they should replace doctors and they will because I am Atomix!

Possibly the worst reason you could've picked!
