  • [01] Cedefop conference: Can robots replace humans?

    In the future robots will not only replace factory workers, but also employees with high skills, such as lawyers and judges, according to Richard Freedman, professor of Harvard University.

    Freedman, who has been awarded with the Mincer and IZA prizes, was addressing a conference of the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (cedefop) entitled "Impact of technology and workplace change on skill needs," held in Thessaloniki.

    "We are entering a new world where machines are gradually becoming more human than humans while not making mistakes or having prejudices," noted Professor Freedman.

    However, he added, the role of humans is not downgraded. "I am very optimistic about the future of the humans [...] In the future we will find new things to do," he said.

    [02] Greece is always a safe country, Alternate Tourism Min Kountoura says

    "Greece was always a safe country, it remains safe and I do not think that we will have any problems," Alternate Development and Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura on Monday said in an interview with Praktorio 104.9 FM.

    "We sign contracts with foreign stakeholders, we promote our country, and we give tourists the opportunity to have a good time and feel safe in our country," she explained.

    Regarding the VAT increase on islands, Kountoura noted that "depending on where they come from, some tourists may also be favored."
