Precision Medicine and the Science of Clumsy Robots

Saturday, October 8, 2016

Today on SciShow News we talk about a new research effort that is aiming to revolutionize how we treat disease. We also discuss the video where Boston Dynamics shows off it’s new version of the Atlas robot by using a hockey stick to mess with it and push it around.
