As Association, members where were eager to share experiences with Tiksoja, as robotics is the chance o deal with workforce issues. Great to see how actually entrepreneur can solve the problem, but the same time we need to remind, that robotics doesn’t mean that people lose jobs, it means that industry changes, and we adapt. Instead industry needs great specialists in IT, programming and software development, so the way we work changes not the need of people”.
