In spite of many positive stories – the two most recent from IEEE Spectrum and John Markoff of the NY Times – security, bureaucracy, undefined need, undocumented benefit(s) and alternative non-robotic methodologies (eg: telecom companies, Skype) seem to be the culprits holding back progress.
Many start-ups but few success stories. InTouch Health, is one of the latter, with a noble effort to be the eyes, ears and voices of doctors who cannot be there in person but can almost be by using InTouch’s line of RP robots and a laptop control station.
Fred Nikgohar of RoboDynamics gives his spin on why progress is slow-going – and he’s on his 3rd year of selling experiences. Very informative interview with Singularity Hub’s Aaron Saenz.
