The search giant is joining hands with Johnson & Johnson to build robots that would help surgeons in the operating room.
The alliance announced recently dovetails with two of Google’s initiatives beyond its main business of Internet search and advertising. The company has been investing in medical research aimed at extending lives and in robotic technology that can free up humans to do other things.
Both the companies will try to engineer robotic technology that will reduce patient trauma and accelerate post-surgery healing.
The search giant will work with Ethicon, a medical device company owned by Johnson & Johnson. Financial terms of the deal aren’t being disclosed.
Johnson & Johnson’s innovation center in California negotiated the partnership with Google, which is based in Mountain View, California.
