We present an Intelligent Digital Assistant for Clinical Operating Rooms (IDACO), providing the surgeon assistance in many different situations before and during an ongoing surgery using natural spoken language. The speech interface enables the surgeon to focus on the operation while controlling the technical environment at the same time, without taking care of how to interact with the system. Furthermore, the system monitors the context of the surgery and controls several devices autonomously at the appropriate time.
