This collaboration will help unlock the potential of shared R&D and knowledge exchange, bringing minds together across borders to benefit the global community.”

I would like to express my hope that this collaboration will lead to further development of research and development in the fields of robotics, digital and AI, including cybernetic avatars, and realize a 'society free from the constraints of body, brain, space, and time”
