Hello Hackers!

Our original speaker fell ill, so we will be having two mini-speakers (mini in presentation length, not stature) instead:

First – Capturing iDevice App Data with Zap. The thing least done these days on a mobile phone is talk. This doesn’t stop our phone from from chatting away. I became fascinated with all the different places and all the data that my phone shared, just by me using the apps on my phone. Capturing the network data that apps use we can see just what we are providing for the deals, convenience, and entertainment we carry around then decide how we want to share our data. @435ftw

Second – The Future of Machine Learning: Augmentation, Industry, and Art. There are usually two kinds of AI talks given to wider audiences: AI 101/102 and AI Will Kill Us All for Money. This is neither. We’ll examine industrial, accessibility, and cultural impacts of balanced applications of these systems. Sometimes, the way to avoid a dystopia is to share a dream beautiful enough that the other paths just aren’t appealing. <speaker name withheld>

We will also be toying with streaming the first talk, as a way to prepare for possible future meetings being online events should COVID-19 or other calamities make in-person meetings infeasible.

This month, Bigendian Smalls will join us to discuss his journey into the world of mainframe hacking, consulting, and teaching, and will show those who are interested how to get started themselves. Come learn about the big iron that underpins the planet, dispel some myths and talk about some real life Gibson hacking.
