Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella knows that leading one of the world’s biggest tech companies comes with a lot of responsibility. And yes, people ask him for computer help “all the time,” he joked with  Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” Wednesday night.

Nadella joined Noah to discuss his book “Hit Refresh” and the responsibility of big tech companies in a digital age.

He reiterated the company’s commitment to supporting immigrants who hold or are seeking jobs in the country, and also said it’s partly the responsibility of tech companies to make sure U.S. workers are being trained for jobs available in the industry now and in the future.

Nadella, who has put a focus on accessibility technology while at the helm of the Redmond company, also discussed what tech has done for his son Zain, who has cerebral palsy. High school students created a button on Zain’s wheelchair that lets him switch through songs on his computer.

It’s empowering to see his son be able to easily enjoy something using technology, Nadella said.
“That’s one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about what technology can do to bring more people access to really fully participate,” he said.
