Apple CEO Tim Cook today delivered the commencement address at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., which is the only university in the world where Deaf and hard of hearing students live and learn bilingually in American Sign Language and English.
Cook’s speech was streamed on YouTube:
During his speech, Cook told students to lead with their values.
“What does it take to build a life that provides meaning and fulfillment?” said Cook. “No one can answer that question for you, and that includes me. There is no iPhone feature that can come to the rescue. AI is good, but it’s not that good. Still, I have one important piece of advice I want to share — so important, that it’s the only piece of advice I’m going to share today. And that is this: whatever you do, lead with your values.”
Cook’s commencement address came after Apple TV+ film “CODA” won an Academy Award for Best Picture. The film revolves around a young woman named Ruby, the sole hearing member of a Deaf family. Using sign language, Ruby acts as an interpreter for her parents while working for her family’s struggling fishing boat business.
