For some, AI was the way to get a better grade when we were youngish students and teachers were, well, teachers. Now, and for us all, artificial intelligence means so much more. 

What are its promises for our future?

What could be its issues and even dangers?

How has society dealt with technology changes in the past? What clues can we gain?

How do “machines” learn? What are some implications for humans if/when machines get “smart” and start doing a larger portion of “the work”?

David Lerner is presenting this General Meeting talk and is anticipating quite an interesting response from attendees.


All are welcome - members & non-members

Create stunning photos like a professional using your mobile device—with free apps

Plan now to attend!


This month Jim Iscaro will demonstrate how to turn a commonplace snapshot taken on your smartphone, tablet, or scanned photo into an artistic photograph using free apps.

He is a longtime computer user and programmer (since the IMSAI 8080 and Commodore PET days) and an amateur photographer. Jim will combine his skills from both fields to demonstrate applications on portable devices that rival professional desktop photo-editing programs.

Both major portable operating systems (iOS and Android) will be covered. The apps are freely available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

The apps covered are Adobe Lightroom Mobile, Adobe Photoshop Fix, Adobe Photoshop Mix, Google Photos, and Google Photoscan.

Come to June’s meeting and see how you can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Operation Clean Slate

In the last several years, the use of malicious software (malware) by online criminals has emerged as a global cybersecurity threat.
