Apple CEO to MIT grads: Tech without values is worthless

Technology companies have been criticized for not co-operating with the tracking process by some critics, who have also called for the removal of certain encryption standards, which might aid in identifying terrorists. The ceremony begins at 10 am and Cook is expected to give his speech around 10:50 am.

"MIT and Apple share so much. We love the search for new ideas, and we especially love finding those ideas, the really big ones, the ones that could change the world". The Pope sized up technology's growing importance as being a double-edged sword, Cook said.

He told the graduates that he went to graduate school, looking for the answer to questions about his goal in life. "What is my objective?"

"I kept convincing myself that it was just over the horizon, around the next corner", he said. "I tried meditation. I sought guidance and religion".

That statement, as well as Friday's commencement speech joke, could make for awkward conversation in about a week's time when Apple's CEO meets with Trump and other business leaders at the American Technology Council. He connected instantly with the company's uniquely clear and decisive mission. How can I serve humanity?

And it was working with Jobs that ultimately led Cook to embrace a similar objective, he added.

Cook focused his highly anticipated speech on his own experience trying to find meaning in his own career, which he ultimately came upon when he joined Apple 20 years ago.

That's when Cruise, sporting some Top Gun fashion, realized, "There's no Maverick without Goose". Then the sign fell off, revealing that it was actually the restroom.

Forget yesterday's news. Get what you need today in this early-morning email. But he cautioned that "technology alone isn't the solution".

While the speech revolved around finding one's goal in a profession, Cook also warned about technology's potential ills. "Sometimes the very tech that's meant to connect us, divides us".

As an alternative, Cook reiterated Jobs' frequent dictum that technology should be guided by the insights of the humanities and liberal arts.

"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.

"The area I'm personally excited about is AR", Cook said. Nonetheless, his interview also touched on President Donald Trump's latest decision of removing the US from the Paris climate accord, which Cook said was not in the best interest of the nation.

"In a moment of indiscretion", Cook said, pausing, before saying, "I might have even experimented ... with a Windows PC".
