'Robots to conduct surgeries by 2018'
The batteries in mobile phones will last for as long as two months with a one-time charge by 2012. Information technology will evolve into a level that one can detect coffee aromas on the internet by 2015. Robots might well conduct simple surgical operations by 2018. These predictions come from head of the Information Ministry's IT Policy Division, Yoo Pil-gye.
The nation excelled in the networks field, with an index of 85.1 out of 100, but lagged behind in the IT service convergence sector with a 61.7 score.
"This clearly means we need to enhance our technology level in IT, biotechnology, nanotechnology as well as IT-based medicine, IT-based architecture and IT-based national defense. We need wise, well-balanced R&D strategies based on timely forecasts and proper consumer analyses," he said.
