Apple CEO Tim Cook's Message To Grads: Tech Without Values Is Worthless

Apple CEO Tim Cook is urging graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology not to forget humanity and compassion in scientific pursuits.

In his commencement address Friday, Cook told MIT grads and their families that technology without basic human values is worthless.

"Technology today is integral to almost all aspects of our lives and most of the time it's a force for good and yet the potential adverse consequences are spreading faster and cutting deeper than ever before," Cook said. "Threats to our security, threats to our privacy, fake news and social media that becomes anti-social. Sometimes the very technology that is meant to connect us, divides us."

Alluding to some of the controversies that have dogged the tech world in recent years, he said, "The internet has enabled so much and empowered so many. But it can also be a place where basic rules of decency are suspended and pettiness and negativity thrive. Don't let that noise knock you of course. Don't get caught in the trivial aspects of life. Don't listen to trolls and for God's sake don't become one."
