Title:Cyber-physical Systems and Application in Robot-assisted Surgery
Date: June 13, 2019 (Thursday)
Time: 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Venue: Room 121, 1/F, Ho Sin-Hang Engineering Building, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, N.T.
Speaker: Prof. Chee-Kong CHUI


The concept of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS) has gained popularity in recent times. Together with Industry 4.0, there is potential for the healthcare industry to leverage its numerous advantages of digitalization and automation. On the other hand, the introduction of robotic instruments in robot-assisted surgery has led to an increase in the complexity of surgical processes. Adopting CPS approaches could potentially improve processes and results of robot-assisted surgery. In this seminar, I will introduce our framework for adapting existing processes for CPS, and explore its applications in robot-assisted surgery and surgical training.  

Speaker’s Bio: 

Chee-Kong CHUI received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore. He has written and contributed to over 100 articles in journals and conferences. He is inventor/co-inventor of seven US patents, and has several patents pending. 

Chui is interested in research and development of engineering systems and science for medicine. He collaborates with clinicians to design and develop new medical devices and robot-assisted systems. His research focus on immersive media involves the provision of haptics and visual cues to assist humans in the training of hand-eye coordination, and furthermore, to augment the human hand-eye coordination in a mixed reality environment and intelligence augmentation. He creates mathematical models and conduct in-vivo and ex-vivo experiments to study tissue biomechanics and tool-tissue interactions. As well, he develop new algorithms in computer vision and graphics. His medical imaging research focuses on measuring and characterizing the material properties of biological tissues.
