THINK Surgical to Co-Develop AI for Robotic Surgery

THINK Surgical announced a collaborative project between Concordia University and THINK Surgical funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and MEDTEQ+. The focus of this project will be on developing advanced image registration algorithms using machine learning and Artificial Intelligence. The results may then be incorporated in THINK Surgical’s next-generation robotic solutions for orthopedic surgery.

The total direct funding for the research is more than $250,000 over three years.

THINK Surgical’s Software Innovation Lab was established in 2015 to lead the software development for THINK’s next-generation robotics solutions. The research conducted at Concordia University’s IMPACT laboratory focuses on development of novel image analysis techniques to improve healthcare and the development of novel techniques for ultrasound imaging, image-guided interventions and image registration.
