Ajlouni said the event focused on creative and innovative ideas and the employment of artificial intelligence technology and modern software in scientific projects applied on the ground, which would provide economic and investment opportunities in the manufacture of robots.

He added that artificial intelligence is involved in all aspects of scientific and practical life, which contributes to placing the name of the university and Jordan among the countries that produce and manufacture smart robotic technology.
