Panel Ideation Discussions

Two ideation and dialogue sessions are planned, i.e. one in the morning and another in the afternoon, with discussions among participants and audience, led by a panel with multi-disciplinary backgrounds, i.e. from medical and technical fields. This aims to bring together technical and medical experts to brainstorm and explore opportunities in implementing robots to address questions and challenges in medical examinations in the primary care environment.
