Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella is all set to visit India in February. He will be in the country on February 7 and 8 as part of his annual visit to the country. Nadella is expected to meet AI startups and discuss new opportunities with AI.
“Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO, Microsoft, will address India’s developer community and technologists on discovering new opportunities with AI,” the company said in a statement.

“India is home to one of the most vibrant developer and start-up ecosystems in the world, and Microsoft remains deeply committed to the growth of Indian technology — that will impact both India and markets across the globe,” it continued.
