Technologies open doors to new professions

Miguel Pina e Cunha spoke to Notícias Magazine (Diário de Notícias) about how technologies open doors to new professions.

“If machines do some work, people engage in other, more creative, problem-solving functions. With all the technological sophistication, there are things that people do better", said Miguel Pina e Cunha.

The point is to requalify and prepare for the future. "It's about protecting people, it's not about protecting the workplace." In other words, “preserving what is no longer viable, such as companies that are no longer sustainable, no longer makes sense and does not contribute to a healthy economy”, stressed Miguel Pina e Cunha.
