Workshop Description: This WS focuses on robotics in healthcare over the past 30 years. We take advantage of the recent retirement of Prof. Paolo Fiorini who will provide an overview of what has happened in the past, what is happening in the present and where the research topic will move in the near future. The combination of robotics and artificial intelligence will be explored in depth by the speakers (long-time friends of Prof Fiorini) who will join the WS.

Intended Outcome: Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc

Approach: During the 80 minutes each speaker will present their activity in relation to the work of Prof. Fiorini. Most aspects of robotic surgery and rehabilitation will be covered by describing the current status and promising future. At the end of these short teasers, Prof Fiorini will close the WS with a 20-minute speech on his activity over the last 30 years.
