Apple: Next Monday (26), Apple announced it will invest US $ 1 billion to build a new campus in the United States. The work will take place in the state of North Carolina, more precisely in the city of Raleigh.
The goal of the local company is to boost the North American economy in an area beyond Silicon Valley and expand the company’s efforts in a number of specific engineering sectors. Recently, Apple has announced more projects for areas in the US and is in the final stages of building a Texas campus that will cost the same amount.
In total, the new campus is expected to create more than 3,000 jobs for specialists in artificial intelligence, machine learning and software engineering. In addition, the region has been strategically selected to be close to educational institutions such as North Carolina State University, Duke University and University of North Carolina, attracting young local talent.
Apples vice president of online services, Eddy Cue, a Duke graduate, celebrated the expansion in the official statement.
