What is is the privacy risks with health care robots?

(1) Answers

Health care robots the key word, being "robots" aren't able to act as we can as humans. Robots and systems lack the emotional skills that we as humans have, they are not intuitive. There are many risks in using robots for health care, although, "health care" is a vague term, so I'll cover a few in general: - Doctor/patient confidentiality is risked when using robots to handle personal medical matters, systems are never 100% secure. - Robots and systems cannot emphasise with patients and will make decisions based on logic and theoretics, not emotionally - for example, if a patient is in a state of bad mental health, a robot will not be able to effectively analyse the right methods to take. - The collection, storage and passing-on of patient information is risked as system encryption is never guaranteed.
