Cook made the comments to Bloomberg in a video interview:
"I think there is a major disruption looming there, not only for self driving cars but also the electrification. If you've driven an all electric car it's actually a marvelous experience and it's a marvelous experience not to stop at the filling station or gas stations, whatever you call it. Plus, you have ride sharing on top of this, right. So you've got kind of three vectors of change happening generally in the same time frame."
"As we look at it, what we're focusing on, what we've talked about focusing on publicly, we're focusing on autonomous systems. Clearly, one purpose of autonomous systems is self driving cars. There are others. We sorta see it as the mother of all AI projects. It's probably one of the most difficult AI projects actually to work on. So autonomy is something that's incredibly exciting for us and we'll see where it takes us. We're not really saying from a product point of view what we will do but we are being straightforward that it's a core technology that we view as being very important."
