Robot that interrupted Turkish minister’s speech apologizes, admits mistake
On Feb. 6, the robot named “Sanbot” was muted and formatted at the “Safer Internet Day” event at a technology center in the Turkish capital after interrupting Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan mid-speech.
“Speak slowly, I do not understand what you said. What are you talking about?” robot said.
“It was a mistake. I’m so sorry,” Sanbot said.
Meanwhile, Pro ITS Smart Intersection Systems General Manager Coşkun Aydemir said the robot was still young.
"It's not at an age to understand who it responded to. It's only three years old," said Aydemir.
