Apple CEO Tim Cook to address 2017 graduates at MIT

Cook said that twenty years ago, his search for goal brought him to Apple, when Steve Jobs had just launched its famous "Think Different" campaign.

"We've been cooperating with the United Kingdom government, not only in law enforcement matters, but on some of the attacks - I can't speak in detail about that - but in cases where we have information and they've gone through the lawful process we, not just give it, but we do it very promptly", he told Bloomberg News in an interview.

After starting the week by criticizing Donald Trump's decision-making, the leader of the world's most valuable company ended it by poking at the president's Twitter habit during his commencement speech at MIT on Friday. "I can tell college students are behind it because most of the tweets have been at 3 a.m". "I'm concerned about humans becoming computers without compassion".

Social media websites run by Twitter Inc. and Facebook Inc. became the focus of scrutiny during the US presidential election, where the promulgation of news stories whose veracity was questionable was seen by many pundits as having played a role in steering votes toward now-President Donald Trump.

"The things that drive quantum leaps is core technology". The Apple CEO said that while he worked with Steve Jobs, he learnt that life's biggest and most important question is how can I serve humanity.

He also advised them: "Don't listen to trolls, and for God's sake don't become one".

Spicer refers Russia investigation questions to Trump's outside attorney
The equally confusing White House explanation was too late to head off a some mercilessly fun at the 45th president's expense. As the room erupted in shouts and sarcastic comments, Spicer smiled briefly but ploughed on to the next question.

Trump is expecting Tim Cook, who works at Apple and occasionally rubs up against the government in a bad way, and Jeff Bezos, who sells books.

"He didn't decide what I wanted him to decide", Cook said.

Cook blamed some of these societal issues on the way we think about technology. As examples, he cited iPhone technology that can help a blind athlete run a marathon and an iPad that connects an autistic child to the world around them. "Measure your impact on humanity, not on likes, but on the lives you touch; not in popularity, but in the people you serve".

Cook spoke to the MIT graduates as a generation coming up to meet lofty expectations.

"That responsibility is huge".

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. "We are all counting on you".
