Posted July 04, 2018 03:19:22In his latest article for Financial Post, Tim Cook describes his dream of creating a billion dollar business using robots to automate a whole range of tasks, from manufacturing to construction to medicine.
It is a dream that would see the Apple CEO, the co-founder of the tech giant and the CEO of a robot maker make billions of dollars by the time the next wave of robots arrives.
He has outlined a vision that is not quite as utopian as it seems.
It’s not just about making billions.
It also involves not being reliant on the human race and instead relying on machine learning.
“You need to get out of your comfort zone and make something new that is truly revolutionary and that can bring billions to the table.
We need to do that,” Cook says.
This isn’t the first time that Cook has discussed this dream of a billion-dollar company.
In 2015, the company announced that it was working on a new technology to make machines smarter than humans, and that it would be using its robots to manufacture its own iPhones, iPads and other gadgets.
This would be a departure from Cook’s previous focus on making products that can make money for customers.
“I think it’s time for us to start to think about this new technology that is going to make the world a better place,” Cook told Business Insider in 2015.
“And that means robots.”
The tech industry has been a relatively slow-moving industry over the past few years.
Over that time, robots have become a mainstay in the manufacturing sector.
In a study published in the journal Science, scientists estimated that over the next decade, robots will replace more than 10 percent of the world’s jobs.
And while there have been some notable successes, such as Apple’s use of its robotics to make iPhone screens for its products, the future of manufacturing in the US is still a long way off.
“The technology is there, but the human capacity to make and produce it has not progressed in a way that can justify the cost and the labor required to manufacture it,” said Christopher Giannino, a robotics expert at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
Cook said that this technology, while exciting, isn’t quite ready to replace humans as a means of producing goods.
“I do believe that we will still need to make products that require human intervention to manufacture and that’s not something that is available to robots yet,” Cook said.
The biggest hurdle is getting humans to get involved.
“Human beings are not good at making things,” Cook added.
In 2015 Apple sold a robot that could create 3D-printed iPhone covers, but this is not the only use for the technology.
Cook’s vision of a trillion-dollar business using robotics has drawn parallels to Tesla Motors, which uses its robot to create cars.
Apple has been in talks with Tesla for a long time.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is also the chairman of the board, said in a tweet earlier this year that “the future of transportation is in the hands of robots.”
In fact, Elon Musk said the future for transportation is not so far off.
But while there are many similarities between Apple’s vision and Tesla, there are also some differences, according to Gianninos.
“There are certain things that Tesla is not going to do.
For instance, it’s not going the whole-body robotic car,” he said.
That’s because Tesla is already in a business of creating self-driving cars, rather than just a factory that produces robots.
“Apple has said it’s going to have a lot of robots, but it’s also going to be a company that makes a lot more of iPhones, not just a company which makes a whole bunch of robots,” Giannines said.
“Tesla has the advantage of making cars and a lot in common with Apple.
It’s going for a different path than Apple, where it wants to make cars that are made by human hands.”
