Trump will discuss drones, wireless tech with investors, execs

The White House will host executives and investors on Thursday for sessions on emerging technology like drones, 5G wireless and the Internet of Things.

Why it matters: The Office of Science and Technology Policy was, under the Obama administration, a key way for the White House to engage in thorny problems involving new technology like artificial intelligence and self-driving cars. But it's been far less active so far under Trump, who hasn't appointed a chief technology officer to lead it. The event is part of a larger "Tech Week" at the White House that included a meeting with major company execs on Monday.
