February 12 7pm General Meeting.   The program topic will be Artificial Intelligence (AI), presented by Joel Ewing.  AI continues to be a hot topic in the news.  This will look at some of the free AI-based query tools currently available, like ChatGPT, and at the power and limitations of AI.  Current AI has the ability to provide benefits; but can also cause problems if its limitations are not understood, or if it is deliberately misused. 
WEATHER CHANGE:  The in-person meeting will be cancelled, and the General Meeting will only be held on-line on Zoom. 

The Zoom broadcast of the Feb 12 General Meeting can be joined 5 to 10 minutes before the meeting by clicking this Zoom link, or manually specify Meeting ID: 884 8736 7398 and Passcode: 9ZDxKM . 

Visitors and Guests are welcome.  For an explanation of using Zoom for BVCC meetings, see the article in the November 2023 Bits & Bytes newsletter.  The Zoom application can be installed and used on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices for free.

  ₁ A substantial portion of the West wing of the lower level of HCC has been rented and occupied for the first time in over a decade.  This includes Room 1001 which had previously been free for our General Meetings.  As a consequence, for the forseeable future we will hold our monthly General Meeting in the BVCC Training Center near the East end of the lower level, in the same room used for Help Clinics and classes.  We believe we can fit in enough chairs as long as attendance doesn't exceed 35 to 40, but if that becomes an issue we will have to find an alternative location with Internet access for the General Meeting at a price we can afford.

         
         

We produce a monthly Bits & Bytes Newsletter and have a monthly general meeting open to the public at 7pm on the 2nd Monday of the month.  For our members we also provide Help Clinics (Member Benefits ►Help Clinics), remote help (Member Benefits ►Remote Help), classes (Member Benefits ►Classes ►Scheduled), and a Genealogy Special Interest Group (Member Benefits ►SIG).  Upcoming meetings and events may also be found on the monthly calendars at Member Benefits ►Calendar.
