Earlier this year, Verb Surgical (backed by Google-parent Alphabet) announced it is partnering with Johnson & Johnson to make robot surgeons smarter. More recently, CEO Scott Huennekens told Qmed's sister publication MD+DI that the company is moving closer to democratizing robotic surgery.

Engineers and developers from Verb Surgical, J&J, and Verily (formerly Google Life Sciences) working on the digital surgery platform are focused on five elements: advanced robotics, advance visualization, advanced instrumentation, data analytics combined with machine learning and simulation, and finally, connectivity. Huennekens said the platform's advanced robotics will be more accessible with improved visualization.
