It is expected to focus on the Council's mission of modernising the federal government and improving its digital and communication technologies.

The guest list is impressive, featuring Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft's Satya Nadella, Oracle's Safra Katz, Palantir's Alex Karp and Intel's Brian Krzanich, to name but a few.

The first meeting of the American Technology Council will reportedly knock heads together on a broad range of issues aimed at modernizing government, issues as diverse as the Internet of Things, drone use, fraudulent government spending, and artificial intelligence. Along with the president, senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner is also expected to participate, according to Axios and Politico.

It comes after some technology executives clashed with Trump over his decision to exit the Paris climate accord. Leaders at Apple and Google were among the American corporate executives who appealed to the president to stay in the pact.
