While the problem is trying to be fixed, it is still a major setback. These systems can only interpret a few simple commands rather than communicate regular conversations that humans do daily. According to an article by Will Knight, these systems lack a deeper learning.

They could no longer see everything in the patient in 3D and their natural use of the instruments was now foreign. Surgeons had to undergo hours of practice to be able to properly maneuver the machines. The main problem doctors had was that they could not properly move the tools as they could with their hands.
