The mother of all artificial intelligence projects
In an interview given by Cook to Bloomberg, the head of the company has assured that they are working on the mother of all artificial intelligence projects. Inside the interview Tim Cook assured that they do not rule out making a vehicle in the future, but that right now the priority is to create good artificial intelligence software.

That is the current priority, and we understand the first one that must be completed before making an autonomous car. Apple has been recruiting more than a thousand people from companies like Ford or Mercedes Benz, who would be involved in this project.
