Software Development Peer Group Meeting

Thursday October 14, 2021 2:30pm – 3:30pm

AI: Come With Me if You Want to Live

Speaker: Dave Norris, TechSmith

Dave Norris is the Chief Technology Officer at TechSmith, the makers of Snagit, Camtasia, and other visual communication software.   He has over 40 years of software development leadership experience with both government and commercial organizations.  Dave worked at Microsoft as a Principal Software Development Engineer before serving as an executive in several software development firms.


For many of us, our earliest experience with AI was the Terminator movies, but so much has changed. In this talk Dave will share an overview of AI methods, the current state of the art, and will give an overview of genetic algorithms and how they are used.

"I love the peer groups that CAITC has established. I love that I can connect, network, and learn from local IT professionals in my field. I also appreciate connecting with peer groups that I don’t always identify with and learn about opportunities to support and advocate for others. Thank you CAITC for building this community, both in person and virtually!"

Brittni Schumacher
Jackson Enterprise Technology

"As a founding member of the Capital Area IT Council, our small IT firm has benefitted immensely from our continued participation in the CAITC. I have personally benefitted from CAITC-sponsored training programs, such as the IT Project Management course that I attended, which in turn has helped me to better manage clients/projects and generate new business for my company, while also creating new opportunities to grow professionally."

Gideon Francis, MBA, CSM, ITIL, CMMI Associate
