Apple CEO to MIT grads: Tech without values is worthless

Cook said he will continue to advise the president on matters that are important to him and the USA, such as the Paris climate accord. Nonetheless, his interview also touched on President Donald Trump's latest decision of removing the USA from the Paris climate accord, which Cook said was not in the best interest of the nation.

One way can be by leveraging artificial intelligence, and though Apple is often termed a laggard on AI when compared to companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon, Cook argues that machine learning is already well integrated into iPhones. I read great philosophers and authors. "Or how you've obviously taken over the president's Twitter account".

While it seemed to be light-hearted, Cook's quip at the president comes at an awkward time.

Cook also warned about the pitfalls of social media platforms.

Details weren't provided, but Apple said in a press release that the iMac will soon include Radeon RX 500-series graphics. On iPad Pro, a redesigned app switcher and customisable dock gives the operating system a flatter, more modern look.

Which is sort of interesting, considering that many of these people - Cook included - are vocally against many of Trump administration's policies. Bloomberg had earlier reported that Cook had called the White House in late May to urge the president to stay in the landmark 2015 climate change pact. "Sometimes, it's even part of the problem", said Cook. "He decided wrong. It's not in the best interest of the United States what he decided".

Another tech luminary that recently delivered a commencement address was Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who returned last month to Harvard where he launched Facebook and then dropped out, telling graduates it's up to them to bring goal to the world, fight inequality and strengthen the global community.

"The potential adverse consequences [of technology] are spreading faster and cutting deeper", said Cook. After the meeting, industry leaders said an area of broad agreement was the potential for the Trump administration to innovate in government services.

His 15-minute talk stood in contrast to a lengthier graduation speech his predecessor, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, gave at MIT rival Stanford University in 2005, in which Jobs outlined his free-thinking background and told graduates to find work they loved. "Don't listen to trolls".

The 25-year-old Halep can become the new world No. 1 if she wins the title but before that she has to tackle Svitolina. The third-seeded Wawrinka, the French Open champion in 2015, will face 15th-seeded Gael Monfils.

"When you keep people at the center of what you do, it can have an enormous impact", he said.

The Apple CEO also addressed climate change, recalling one shareholder meeting where an investor sought assurances the company would only make green investments that could produce a demonstrable financial return.

"We do these things because they're the right thing to do and protecting the environment is a critical example", he said.
