ALL are invited to attend

The United Methodist Men Breakfast Meeting for the month of May will be held on Saturday, May 18th in the vestry.  We will meet for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. followed by our program which this month will be about Artificial Intelligence (AI) presented by Jerry Harrow. 

Jerry is a Principal software engineer in the Hewlett Packard Enterprise AI Division where he leads a team working on AI deployment.

He will review:

What is AI?

How does it work?

What can it do?

Should we be scared of it?

Come prepared with your questions!!!

All men and women of the church are invited to attend to learn about AI and its many uses to make your lives easier.  If you can attend the breakfast and the program please RSVP to this e-mail letting us know that you will be coming so we can provide food for you.  If you come just for the program you don't need to RSVP.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

In Christ,

Kent  Swanson
