Doctors will be completely replaced by robots

Can you imagine what a visit to the doctor’s would look like in 20 or 30 years? It’s highly likely that, in the future, it will be very different to what we experience now. Medical technologies are developing rapidly and already actively helping doctors to make diagnoses. But what further potential does technology have? What do physicians think about the changes that may occur in their profession in the future? 

Kaspersky interviewed medical professionals around the world to find out their opinions on one of the most common futuristic theories: will technologies be able to completely replace doctors? 37% of global respondents agree that it may happen with the help of AI, cloud, big data, and robotics in just 20 years, and 43% believe such technologies will completely replace psychologists. 

But what about the readiness to entrust our health to machines? Quite a substantial number of physicians are quite confident about the capacity of future technologies. 40% of global healthcare professionals agree they would be happy to recommend that their relatives have surgery done by robots when it becomes a possibility.

Joe Ligtenberg Vieira Jr. I believe that's the field where 90% of their functions will be replaced. It's not possible to accept mistakes in this field and that's the reason why robots will become the future doctors. Those "10%" are the bosses, just given instructions and explaining the rules.

Jessey Baillargeon will I do agree robots will take over several jobs, robots won't dominate the medical field, they'll most likely take over surgeries or delicate procedures but robots wont take over hospitals.

Max Isaev Gabriel Quintero, robot is a term, just like AI, it basically means automized protocol. Right now health workers are bound by these protocols, but as humans they can ignore the rules sometimes. What is suggested in this article: instead of paying the doctor, you pay for a visit on special website or an app where you choose between symptoms, and based on your selection you're given diagnosis. May be there's also a database where people share their experiences and rate diagnosis which were correctly given on certain unsorted symptoms. The upperside is that the owners of this business don't have to hire doctors, they build an application once and receive profits forever.

victor louis There will always be a need for a human presence in the medical field, complete replacement will be impossible.
