Tim Cook Says Apple Focused on Autonomous Systems in Cars Push

We've known about Apple's significant investments in self-driving cars for a while now, but the company has not clearly stated what there intentions are up to this point.

Alex Webb and Emily Chang reporting for Bloomberg:

"After years toiling away in secret on a car project, Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook has for the first time elaborated on the company’s plans in the automotive market.

"'We’re focusing on autonomous systems,' Cook said in a June 5 interview on Bloomberg Television that amounted to his most detailed comments yet on Apple’s automotive plans. 'It’s a core technology that we view as very important.” He likened the effort to “the mother of all AI projects,' saying it’s 'probably one of the most difficult AI projects to work on.'”

His statements are still quite broad, but Cook is setting expectations for a serious product push in "autonomous systems" in coming year.
