President also hears how AI could help modernise government IT

America’s tech leaders spoke to President Donald Trump of the need to upskill US citizens to meet a growing demand for digital skills yesterday.

Meeting with his America Technology Roundtable yesterday, Trump sat next to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft chief Satya Nadella and Amazon boss Jeff Bezos as he outlined his aim to save $1 trillion over the next decade by upgrading government services.

“Our goal is to lead a sweeping transformation of the federal government’s technology that will deliver dramatically better services for citizens, stronger protection from cyber attacks,” he said.

“We’re embracing big change, bold thinking, and outsider perspectives to transform government and make it the way it should be, and at far less cost.”
