Apple's Car
As with every big project, especially first generation ones, Apple will not reveal the totality of its plans, or how advanced the project is. On a different note, I thing there are plenty of projects called "Titan" in the cooking. -Susan

Re: Possibility and reality
There are so many working on self-driving cars, AI and automation it will be a race to the finish, however, if legislation does not keep up we will find ourselves with great technology that isn't truly available to the general public. We are seeing technology move into so many new areas without full consideration of the implications. This is just one of them.

Re: Possibility and reality
Well, we certainly aren't getting any real info from Apple yet of the mystery project. Maybe there's a clue when "Cook did hint that this project is difficult," which may mean either we see some real stuff happening eventually, or we don't because it was really really difficult?

Re: Possibility and reality
If Apple is really building an AI-based car, I would anticipte it will take years to become commercialized. 

It's still too early. I know people want to believe the driverless future is near. However, the reality is that people still drive. Almost everyone still does.

Re: Possibility and reality
Exactly if it can't be monetized to achieve a revenue stream that will create leadership, it doesn't warrant the investment. AI is not the panacea or the apocalypse of mankind as so many headlines shout, it is simply another form of technology innovation that we will harness for the appropriate uses.

Re: Possibility and reality
@maryam: I think that is also the reasons Cook said it was such as a tough project. Not only is the tech hard to master, but what do you do with it once you have created it? Where's the value add?

Possibility and reality
Apple is being realistic about the possibility and reality to monetize AI, while it is the hot topic of discussion today, so many of the expectations of what it can do are exaggerated and inflated. It will take time for AI to become proficient and we will need to live through the bumps in the road to get us there.AI will find its place in repetitive tasks but I think it will be a long time until AI finds its place in any task requiring judgment or impacting life and death decisions.
