Chinese and Israeli research institutes and companies attending an exposition on Tuesday in Guangzhou are keen to cooperate on developing medical robots.
Nine Israeli companies at the event brought with them robotics currently used in spinal1
surgery, 3D imaging, and medicinal dosage handling devices.
Israeli Robotics Association Chairperson Zvi Shiller said Israel has developed robots to help the disabled go to the toilet, shower and climb escalators. Israeli firms are actively3
looking for partners to produce and sell their robots in the Chinese market. More than 40 Chinese companies have shown interest during the expo, while others have pitched business ideas to their Israeli counterparts.
Chinese tech firm Gosuncn Technology Group is investing heavily in patrol robots. A senior company official said his team have had a hard time overcoming some technological4
issues two years into the project and are hoping to find Israeli partners.

president of iFlytek, is working to combine speech recognition with health care. The company is working with its major shareholder5
China Mobile on a series of voice-to-text and text-to-voice applications.
