Overview
Hippocrates is a new joint effort between roboticists, computational mechanicists, and computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University, and surgeons and bioengineers at Shadyside Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA. Its goal is to develop advanced planning, simulation, and execution technologies for the next generation of computer-assisted surgical robots. Because of the significant computational requirements presented by each of these tasks, high performance computing is essential to realizing the great promise of robot-assisted surgery.
