Quotes

"It brings a little childhood wonder to our guests, and much like Rosie from the Jetsons or Wall-E or R2D2, when we see guests' reaction to it, it just brings a smile to people's faces and it's just something fun" said Starwood Hotels Brand Leader Brian McGuinness
"We're all about, in the long run, building robots that can help people, and this is really the first step," Cousins said. "As we master that skill of navigation, then we can think about beyond delivery and do things to help people in all different ways. That's the vision that drives us as a company."
"Isn't it a bit strange for people to be talking with robots" , or 'There's a sense of discomfort to it' - those concerns, I think, have been dispelled,” said Mr Takahashi...
...about that world over there where people sat around and talked for hours versus the hustle and bustle and craziness of New York," Grifoni said. "Technology just needs to be built the right way, and it can stop us from a 'Wall-E' future where we're all staring at screens."
