Infrastructure and engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) expects almost 50 per cent of all surgeries to be robot-assisted by 2025, as Artificial Intelligence (AI) makes robots precise enough to facilitate complex surgeries, the company said on Monday.

The L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS) organised an ‘Experience Walk-through’ as part of a symposium on advancement in robot-assisted surgery to enable participants to get hands-on experience with cutting-edge products and solutions in the medical and medical equipment field.


Experts in the field including Professor Kesh Kesavadas from University of Illinois and the inventor of RoSS Robotic Surgery Simulator, the world’s first stand-alone training system for da Vinci surgical system, and Dr. Ramalingam, from PSG Institute of Medical Science and Research, Coimbatore, expect the percentage of robot-assisted surgeries to jump to 50 per cent by 2025 from around 10 per cent today.

“Training surgeons to become proficient in the use of robots is a major challenge in India. Innovative low-cost training systems such as the Endo-Training kit and new VR/AR based training simulators such as RoSS promises to address the needs of the fast-growing clinical robotic sector,” said Professor Kesh Kesavadas of the University of Illinois in the US.

The symposium was dedicated to discussing the possibilities and advancements in the field of Medical Robotics.

“Technological disruption is transforming the development process across markets, promoting new levels of efficiency and creativity in manufacture of healthcare products,” Abhishek Sinha, COO and Member of the Board at L&T Technology Services, said in a statement.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
