During an interview with Bloomberg, Apple CEO Tim cook has indirectly confirmed the fact that the employees of his company, among other things, actively working on Autonomous systems for unmanned vehicles. Rumors about this went a very long time. Some even believed that one day Apple will show his fans a real Apple Car. However, as the years went by and no “Apple car” we never showed. But that could change in the future.
“If we speak frankly about what we focused on at the moment, it is an Autonomous system. And one of the applications of these systems are unmanned vehicles. But in addition to vehicles, such systems can be used for other purposes. We believe such projects are the “mother of all AI”. It’s definitely the most difficult project associated with artificial intelligence, on which we have ever worked with. But the achievement of autonomy is very important to us and incredibly curious to see what we get in the end”.
From the words of Tim cook can do a variety of conclusions. Of course, the fact that Tim cook and his team are developing autopilot does not have to result in the creation of a private car Apple. It may well be that the light will be operating system, like the existing CarPlay, able to take control of the car. But as they say, never say never. There is always a chance that one day we will see a brand new shiny car, the design of which has put his hand jony Ive.
