Special Topic for this session: Using AI to Text and Draw Pictures

Do you know that AI software engineers have developed programs that if you type a simple command, your “AI companion” will carry on a conversation with you (AI texting), answer your questions, write a poem or paint a picture for you? The softwares are free. Come to explore the new technology with Joy. Bring your computer, tablet or smartphone. You will be amazed by the results. See the painting below.

A monthly meeting for TVIH members to ask tech questions, share information, and learn together. No prior experience is required. 


Do you have questions about the TVIH website, the apps on your smartphone, making a digital recipe file on your computer, or a good scanner to buy for scanning old family photos? Come to ask your questions and share what you know with other TVIH members. If we don’t know the answers, we will look up in Google search.


In 2019, more than half of older adults bought a new tech product, whether it be a smartphone, laptop, or smart home device. The internet enables seniors to connect with loved ones or stay informed on current news and research. Searching for yummy recipes, watching videos, making telemedicine calls, paying bills, and social networking are all common reasons seniors choose to hop on the World Wide Web.

Once seniors are connected to the internet, getting online becomes part of their daily routine. Roughly 75 percent of older adults with an internet connection report that they use it daily.
