Chicago surgeon attacked outside of AI Dreamforce Convention in SF

San Francisco: Dr. Paramjit Chopra, a Chicago surgeon, was assaulted outside an artificial intelligence convention in San Francisco September 11 after the unprompted attack.

Dr. Chopra, 62, was in San Francisco for the Dreamforce Conference – an annual convention with a focus on AI. Chopra, an endo-vascular surgeon, was scheduled to speak at the event.

Chopra said that as he was walking through San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood, blocks away from the convention center, a man rushed at him like a football player.

The attack left Chopra wondering if the incident was racially motivated. The unidentified attacker did not say anything to Chopra and left after the assault, without stealing anything.
