Medical robots are changing healthcare around the world. Machine learning and computers able to learn from data will be essential to decoding diseases and performing precise surgery in the 21st century.

Will “machine healing” bring the cold efficiency of the machine age to sick and vulnerable people - or will it complement human touch, experience and empathy?

It is a known fact that humans respond to what is called the human touch. Having a robot doctor will not be something humans can relate to due to the fact that a robot cannot provide "the human touch" that human beings respond to and crave so much. The tenderness, the emotional support, the level of care that a human being provides cannot be replicated by a robot. So, robots replacing doctors is not something that people will respond to or want at all.
