This is great until the remote surgeon using the robot via a wireless link (that's how they'll do it right?) to move around your stomach looses his internet connection.

If something wrong operation conducted by robot, I am wondering who is the responsibility of the action. Everyone let the fault for using robot...I thought.

Intuitive Surgical has been building surgical assistant bots since 1995 and one of its merged predecessors was in the business before then, even. IS used to be based in Mountain View, like Google, but has since moved one suburb south, to Sunnyvale. I guess maybe they priced themselves too high for Google to buy them.

No, there's no remote surgeon controlling the robots. The robots are assistants to the surgeons in the premises.
