Technology Center will that NVIDIA stay at the forefront of automotive technology in Michigan

NVIDIA has announced that it has opened a new Ann Arbor Tech Center, following years of investment in Michigan. The new NVIDIA Tech Center comes as major automotive manufacturers such as GM, Ford, and others have begun hiring huge numbers of software developers specifically to create in-vehicle applications.
NVIDIA points out that Volkswagen, Chrysler, Ford, and GM are already using NVIDIA products in the design process for its vehicles, so having a technology center near the heart of the auto manufacturing community in Michigan makes sense. The tech center also puts NVIDIA close to the University of Michigan where it can pick up young, fresh talent.

Michael Finney, president and CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, says, “I’m pleased to see more technology-focused companies look to the state of Michigan as a resourceful home and partner. NVIDIA’s commitment to the state of Michigan is an encouraging sign for future growth and jobs in the technology and automotive industries.”

NVIDIA is already one of the biggest providers of infotainment technology for vehicles with several major automakers directly using its technology within vehicles. Digital in-dash instrument clusters from Audi, Bentley, BMW, Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Tesla, and Volkswagen are all powered by NVIDIA hardware.

But corporate thuggery, thats just fine... you are one ignorant s.o.b. when it comes down to history. You realize that GM use to chain the doors shut, and post armed supervisors and guards at the entrances and exits of their factories before the unions came to be... You know... when they were trying to force people to work 16-24hour shifts... Those guards would shoot you if you tried to leave work. And I know this, because my grandfather was one of the people who founded the UAW at Buick City.

Now as far as Michigan is concerned, its no surprise.. Several colleges up there and tech schools, all in that general area. Friend of mine up there has been telling me the tech sector has been booming like crazy. Growing faster than silicon valley.

But you have to figure, UofM in Ann Arbor, MSU in Lansing, UofM in Flint along with ITT, DeVry, Baker, Kettering. Not to mention quite a few colleges in Detroit.

Corporate thuggery is easier to walk away from. And with unions, you have to tolerate a lot of brainwashing ("We're so great. You wouldn't be able to wipe your butt without us. Blah blah blah.") and cultist attitude ("You're a member. Aren't you? Why not? <knuckles cracking>"). Had a friend that worked at an auto plant. Fine kid before he arrived. Showed serious signs of union programming after working their a while.

If unions want to get strong again, get rid of the real enemy of unions, the U.S. Department of Labor.

Modern labor law and regulation have completely nullified the need for unions for at least 30 years now. All unions do now is raise the cost of doing business in the US and push jobs overseas. Look around you! nothing is made here any longer because greedy unions ruined manufacturing in this country and are a direct cause of Detroit's and the larger auto industries financial problems. This anti corporate mentality is mind boggling who dafuq do you think employs people? what do they get out of shafting their employees?

Right to work goes both ways you don't like your employer you can go find work elsewhere for any reason. Unions didn't give me that right legislation did! Time to get out of the 19th century labor mentality and join the 21st century.

Nice to see these kinds of investments in the state.
