"The machine supports, but does not replace, humans"
Impressed by Mplus' emphasis on people, which resonates with his background as a doctor and politician, Rösler stresses the importance of human-to-human relationships in a world dominated by discussions about artificial intelligence.
"The machine supports but does not replace, the human. And I would bet that you, as a human being, would rather be treated by another human, who bears the final responsibility, than by a machine. This is also a guarantee that not all jobs will be replaced," Rösler told the Croatian newspaper.
Rösler noted that understanding people and their emotions was crucial to comprehending behavior, economic trends, and technological processes, and he commended Mplus for excelling in this regard, noting that this focus contributed to the company's global competitiveness.

He also said he was impressed by the ambition and competence of Mplus's workforce, which enable a unique business model that provides complex services to clients while delivering cost-saving solutions.
“If you walk around our locations from which we offer outsourcing support, and also our proprietary IT technologies that we sell throughout Europe, as well as services in the field of human resources and e-commerce, you will see competent people, who speak excellent English, are hungry, ambitious and want to build a career.
