Nearly a week after news agency PTI reported that ‘Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is headed to the United States where he is likely to meet the pioneers of research on Artificial Intelligence (AI), technocrat Sam Pitroda has cleared the air on the matter. Sam Pitroda is a technology innovator who was brought back to India by Rajiv Gandhi and was among those behind the telecom revolution in the country. Taking to Twitter, Pitroda wrote, “I have seen news in media that Rahul Gandhi is coming to the US to give a talk on Artificial Intelligence. This is FALSE information.” “I don’t know who is behind it but, it seems like it has gone viral. Rahul Gandhi is not coming to talk about Artificial Intelligence,” he added in another tweet. Also, in a series of tweets, Pitroda said, “But he is coming to meet with students and academicians and various thinking people in the US. He will be giving a talk at University of California, Berkeley. He will be also meeting with Indian Overseas Congress exe. members and others. There is a major event planned in NY with the Indian Overseas Congress. Which he will be attending.”

TWEETS by Sam:-

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will interact with global thinkers, political leaders and overseas Indians in the US this week on international economic and technology issues. Gandhi, 47, begins his nearly two-week trip to the US with an address at the University of California, Berkeley, on Monday on contemporary India and the path forward for the world’s largest democracy. His great grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, delivered a speech at Berkeley in 1949.

“The purpose of the visit is two-fold. One is to meet interesting and global thinkers, to have a conversation on what is happening world over on economy, on technology, on opportunities, and really understand different views from experts on the global scene,” technocrat Sam Pitroda, who is involved with the preparations of Gandhi’s visit. Pitroda worked with Gandhi’s father and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi for nearly a decade to transform India’s telecom sector.
