What is Ham Radio? Orv's presentation will include a brief overview of what amateur (ham) radio is, all the things that can be done with it, and what's required to get started in this great hobby!

A Closer Look at AI. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broad field that includes developing intelligent systems that can perform tasks that typically require human-level intelligence, such as learning, reasoning, perception, and natural language processing. Many different AI tools can be used for various applications, including chat, audio, video, and other aspects of AI. The presentation is split between hands-on and videos.

The videos Bob has selected are:
1. AI - A Closer Look
2. 10 Pros and Cons of Using ChatGPT
3. AI in cybersecurity - The good, the bad, and the ugly
4. The New Bing with ChatGPT
5. What is Phishing, and can you protect against it? - The only part of this video that's from me is my voice
6. AI-Generated Outer Space Images
