“Fast automated profit of the company grows. They get a higher profit. Of her and want to help those people who are released, to help them adapt, to retrain. That is, you need to go through General taxation and not to come up with the same taxation on the robot.”

“I recently was in one of the universities. We see the centers of innovation, is very good. There developed interesting projects. And showed me a device that helps to remove icicles from the roof. He does this efficiently and without the participation of the people. Imagine my surprise when I went outside and there stood the brigade of migrants and removed the icicles from the same University. The problem is not the lack of personnel and not that we are not willing to train. The problem is the lack of motivation in business and Economics in long-term investments and long-term investment.”

“You know, people never will replace the robots. A robot is a helper, the robot is able to direct its resources, its God’s gift, that the human soul, to reveal potential. I can not imagine a robot entrepreneur. I imagine a robot that helps the entrepreneur to realize their boldest ideas. But bold ideas — it is still the lot of man.”

So we want the most innovative technologies were used, but I think the main thing now is to achieve the quality of work of each specialist is a specialist in primary care and in the workplace”.
