“Every time a new technology comes out, we humans are afraid of what might happen because we have no idea what might be awaiting us. When computers came out, we were all afraid of losing our jobs. But what really has happened? The global economy has grown significantly and people are now living better lives.”

“First of all, I would advise to treat robots well now. When they decide to uprise, they will know who treated them well and who treated them badly. So let's be careful with them."

“Our goal is to make robot that will assist humans, not replace them.”

“You can’t say there will be anything that artificial intelligence will not be able to do.”

“Armenia has the potential and opportunity to develop in the field of robotics. But we must start now, at this very moment.”
