Time for a video with researchers talking about this
When Tim Cook was promoted to CEO, Jeff Williams is the man he picked to take over his job as operations chief.
Apple shares now up over 1 percent, or $1.36, to $127.96.
Yes, Apple won't see it, but will your insurance company ask for access eventually? And, how personally identifiable will data you submit to research projects be?
Researchers all saying there's a need to transform how we do research. And iPhone can help with that. Can help design the apps for clinical studies, etc.
Kind of interesting that Williams introduced this, not Craig Federighi, the software chief.
Researcher calls this a possible game changer
One of the things research kit will do is put people at the center of research, researcher says in video
The easier you make it for people to participate, the better off they'll be, woman with Parkinson's says in video
Williams is back on stage
Lots of applause. He's gesturing for people to stop clapping
Big applause for ResearchKit. Seems to hit the right non-commercial note with the audience here.
Williams: We're going to add to ResearchKit over time, but we wanted anybody anywhere to contribute. We're going to make this open source
Apple plus open source, two terms you rarely hear in the same breath.
Williams: We're releasing ResearchKit next month. The first 5 apps you saw are going to be available today
There's some guy to my left who keeps shouting "Woo!" to pretty much everything.
Williams: Apple has always believed amazing things can happen when you put technology in the hands of many
Williams: Brilliant and motivated research community out there. Can't wait to see what they do with it.
A big bellow for "open source" from one guy.
Cook: The iPhone continues to change so many things in our lives. Confident research will transform medical research
Cook: Next up, I'd like to talk about the Mac
There's an iPad on the slide on stage, FYI
Cook: This is the strongest Mac lineup we ever have had.
Ok, now I'm excited It's Mac time.
Cook: We continue to provide the very best experience for consumers. For every year for the past decade, the Mac has outgrown the industry
Cook: If look at notebooks, telling. Last year industry shrank (2%) while Mac grew 20%
Apple’s Mac business might not be as big -- as or a sexy -- as its mobile business, but it remains an important focus for Apple.
Intel released its mainstream 5th-gen Core i chips in January at CES, so they're starting to filter into shipping hardware now, such as Dell XPS 13.
Cook: The definition of portabilty has changed in the last several years, led by iPhone and iPad. So we challenged ourselves to take everything learned in designing iPhone and iPad and do something incredibly ambitious and bold
Cook is talking about learning from iPhone and iPad design for computers.
Cook: We challenged ourselves to reinvent the laptop. And we did
Okay, here we go. New MacBook time.
We're now seeing a video. Looks like a bubble floating across a display
