iRobotSurgeon Survey dataset

  • Aimun Jamjoom (Creator)



The iRobotSurgeon survey aimed to explore public opinion towards the issue of liability with robotic surgical systems. The survey included five hypothetical scenarios where a patient comes to harm and the respondent needs to determine who they believe is most responsible: the surgeon, the robot manufacturer, the hospital, or another party. A total of 2191 completed surveys were gathered evaluating 10955 individual scenario responses from 78 countries.
