Is it because, according to a study carried out on behalf of the UK Office of Science and Innovation's Horizon Scanning Centre, Robots could demand legal rights that I have experienced a sudden surge of interest in the possible use of robots in healthcare?

I have been interviewed twice recently by Professional Engineer (PDF 1Mb) and, for an article to appear next week, by Natalie Engler, Health Correspondent for Harvard Medical International.
