Doctor who can heal itself**

Boffins at Cornell University have developed an autonomous, soft robot that is not only able to identify injuries but heal itself.

The scientists plan to integrate these soft robots with artificial intelligence (AI) machine learning in the future.

Cornell associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering Rob Shepherd said that his team developed an autonomous self-healing optical sensing mechanism, networks of self-healing light guides for dynamic sensing (SHeaLDS), which exploit the damage-resilient properties intrinsic to light propagation, in combination with an intrinsic self-healing material, to achieve an optomechanical sensor that both autonomously self-heals and provides reliable dynamic sensing performance.
