Silicon Valley had been preserving the progress of tech innovations in the country. While clearly most of them voted for Hillary Clinton, they still attended the meeting of tech representatives with President-elect Donald Trump.
Tim Bajarin stated that since Bill Clinton, the technology community had been stable, according to FastCompany. Bajarin is the president of the research and consulting firm Creative Strategies. He also stated that the three past presidents were also cool with the tech leaders schooling them. Since Trump had made decisions before the meeting, the tech leaders would want to ensure that Trump would not do anything to stumble the technology community.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, IBM CEO Ginni Rometti, Alphabet's Eric Schmidt, Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, and Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins were present. Seated on Trump's left was his adviser Peter Thiel. The meeting was held at Trump Tower last Dec. 14.
"There's nobody like you in the world," Trump said at the beginning of the meeting stated by Politico. "There's nobody like the people in this room. And anything we can do to help this go along, we're going to be there for you." With the tech leaders on the lead alongside Trump, people envision a greater community ahead.
With Tim hearing the meeting, he concluded reasons on why the four appointed council leaders should join Trump in his venture towards technology development;
Education Progressing Along with Technology
Trump said that with education progressing fast, students should be prepared for their upcoming careers as well. He said the students need work that has a designated course for programming, data mining, digital security, and other skill sets. Concluding that he needs the help of the tech leaders to do so.
Immigration Reform “The Wall”
Trump’s “the wall” for immigrants may have a negative impact on workers under the H-1B visa program. So he asked the tech leaders on their insights and how they could retain the program in place. Or much better, expand the program.
Trump aims at the 5G technology to dominate the upcoming year with fast speed connectivity. With 5G technology new high-speed connectivity can be introduced. It is because he wants to increase the communication stability in the country. With tech leader’s experts in mobiles, vehicles, and the internet, Trump is sure that the tech leaders could create his ideal broad network.
New Modes of Transportation
This would lead to the council to implement laws on autonomous and semi-autonomous driving. With Uber, this could be possible. Since Uber and Lyft plan have been already preparing self-driving cars in the future.
