Google, IBM, Oracle to talk tech at White House amid trade war



Technology industry leaders are expected at the White House for
a summit Thursday to talk about emerging innovations like
artificial intelligence while the effects of the administration’s
trade war with China loom in the background.

Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai, International
Business Machines Corp.’s Ginni Rometty, Oracle Corp.’s CEO Safra
Catz, Microsoft Corp.’s Satya Nadella and Qualcomm Inc.’s Steve
Mollenkopf are among those expected to attend.

Pichai, who is also due to testify before a congressional panel
on Dec. 11, will join the group after Trump has repeatedly accused
his company of systematically biasing search and news results
against conservatives–a charge with little evidence but one that
other Republican politicians have picked up. The Alphabet Inc. unit
is also under fire for its project to build a censored search
engine for China, which Pichai has insisted is only
exploratory.
