Today most of our efforts were concentrated on Password Managers.
We covered the weeks Cyber Security News and then dove into
Password Mangers. Should you uses them? Which one is a good choice.
How to remove LastPass and install a substitute like Bitworden, Dashlane,
RoboForm, or another product. Steps taken to changing from one to another, etc.
The final segment of the show was a tribute to Jeff Beck.
A 20 minute Q&A session mainly on the Password topic ended the show.

2-15-2023 Computer Club at Golden Vista Resort, AZ

This morning I had the pleasure to ZOOM in to the club to do my presentation.
I was on ZOOM, they were all there in person. The presentation went off without
a hitch which wasn't the case in 2021 when the club had severe internet limitations.
A hotspot did the trick today and we were all able to enjoy our get-together.
Following the presentation we had a question about some of the programs discussed
during the presentation and, a discussion and clarification about 2FA

Last night's presentation for the member of DMA was the maiden voyage
of a new presentation "AI - A Closer Look" which explores the many uses 
of Artificial Intelligence in various industries including the Cybersecurity
Industry outlining how Avast uses AI and how both Avast and their customers 
benefit from the use of AI.
The presentation is divided into two parts. Par one is a PowerPoint presentation.
Part two is a hands on demo of ChatGPT and DALL-E 2. For this portion, the club
requesting the presentation is asked to supply input they would like both
AI platforms to address. We had some interesting replies from both ChatGPT and
DALL-E 2 from the queries submitted. the following image is from DALL-E 2 in response
to the following question:
“An illustration about the frustrations a user often has with a personal computer, mobile phone, and/or tablet--in the style of the artist, illustrator, cartoonist, and author, Gahan Wilson (February 18, 1930 – November 21, 2019)” Here is the response shared:

It was truly an enjoyable evening with lot's of question about AI from those attending.

3/12/2023 Central Florida Computer Society, FL

Today's presentation on AI - A closer Look for CFCS was well received and attended.
The Q&A session probably took as long as the presentation.
We posed two questions to ChatGPT: 1. "Why are there so many production companies showing their logos at the beginning of a movie?"
2.  "What supplements interact negatively with Metformin?" I then asked for sources
to back up the replies received. The audience was amazed at the speed and accuracy of the information.
We also posed two inputs for picture requests from DALL-E 2 which again amazed some of those attending
how quickly the pictures were rendered.
