2nd Tuesday of the month at 11:45 AM
The format for our meetings is that about noon the speaker begins the presentation, after being introduced by Bob Kirby. About half an hour later lunch is served, which doesn't stop the presentation. Questions for the speaker are during the presentation or after it, depending on the wishes of the speaker.
Lunch costs $12.00 and is served family style. There is no charge for showing up if you don't want to eat lunch.
Updating and Upgrading America's Elections Infrastructure.
Gregory Miller is co-founder of the Silicon Valley based 501.c.3 nonprofit Open Source Election Technology (OSET) Institute. Established in November 2006, the Institute focuses on education, research and development of election technology innovation.
Mr. Miller has 30+ years of technical and business experience in computer and information technology. He is a trained computer scientist, with graduate business education, and a law degree focused on intellectual property, technology law, and public policy. Greg’s technical background includes user interface design, object-oriented software development, TCP/IP networking, and distributed systems.
Greg will describe the Institute’s flagship effort, the TrustTheVote Project, designing and building a next-generation “elections operating system” called “ElectOS” to serve as a draft standard for critical democracy infrastructure, and enable voting technology that will earn federal certification and be ready for others to commercially deploy in time for the 2020 election. This publicly available technology will increase integrity, lower cost, and improve usability.
