Driverless Car Project ‘mother of all AI projects’, Tim Cook
Apple has revealed new insight into its top-secret driverless car mission, as CEO Tim Cook depicted the test of building self-governing vehicles as “the mother of all” man-made brainpower ventures.
Cook said Apple was furrowing resources into developing innovation to control driverless vehicles, despite the fact that he declined to preclude the Silicon Valley firm building its own car sooner or later. Tim spoke as shares in his organization and different US tech firms went under compression this week in the midst of financial specialist worries that a part wide blast is losing steam.
Cook endeavored to re-establish confidence in Apple’s capacity to strike out into new domain by giving his most nitty gritty remarks yet about a car project that has been covered in mystery.
“We’re concentrating on self-ruling frameworks,” said Cook in a meeting with Bloomberg television. “Unmistakably one motivation behind self-ruling frameworks is self-driving autos. There are others. We kind of consider it to be the mother of all AI [artificial intelligence] ventures.” He included: “It’s presumably a standout amongst the most troublesome AI extends really to chip away at.”
At the point when reports of Apple’s enthusiasm for autos begun to rise in the media, it was at first felt that the organization was going to test the car goliaths of Detroit, which are dashing to fabricate their own self-driving cars.
Be that as it may, the range of Apple’s aspirations limited a year ago after Apple veteran Weave Mansfield was placed responsible for the program, named Extend Titan.
While Cook was cagey about how extend Titan will develop, his remarks propose that Apple’s essential concentrate is on AI innovation that could be sold or adjusted for use in different enterprises.
