May General Meeting

Artificial Intelligence by Ken Spencer

AI: The Ability of Computers to Perform Tasks Commonly Associated with Intelligent Beings . . . 

What is this latest tech rage, AI-Artificial Intelligence?

 

Should I embrace it, avoid it, believe it?

 

Ken Spencer will de-geekify what this latest technology was, is and will be.

 

You will learn the history and uses of AI, Artificial Intelligence, and what the future might bring.

 

Technology can be a tool for good or evil, but more importantly, it can, and should enhance our lives….. and our photography!

 

Ken has spent the last two decades embracing and educating about new technology as a consultant. He strives to simplify technology, for a non-tech consumer, for real people.

Ken Spencer

Ken strives to integrate tech in all parts of his life. He believes if you embrace tech, it can amplify almost all of life's pursuits.

You may view Ken's presentation [HERE].

08:30 AM Wheels roll!  A printed map will be given to each vehicle.  

 

We should arrive when the doors open at 09:00, so there will not be many people to obscure your lovely photographs.  We will spend time roaming the beautiful grounds and inside the gift shop area.  There is also a place next to the Cafe and parking lot to purchase vinegar, oils, honey and preserves from their farm.

We will most likely set up lunch per vehicle and sit at separate tables near each other.  Last time Diane managed to convince the hostess to put us all together which was absolutely wonderful.   The reason for being an early bird.   

 

Thus, this is a last minute FLASH MOB experience.   The date was changed from Thursday as we have discovered Costco will be opening that day which could cause a traffic jam.   

 

FLOWER MOON on Thursday will be a great day for us to edit our photos and enjoy flowers all over again!   Very appropriate.

 

So charge up those batteries and bring all your mobile phone expertise to shoot some great photos.   Need help?   Don't be afraid to ask for assistance.   We can share our knowledge with each other.  This is a great opportunity for our SmartPhone people.  It is good to have a 1/2 day field trip to rest our bodies.  Would you consider a trip like this once a month?

 

Looking forward to you joining us.   It really is our favorite nursery!
