Carolinas March 2020 Chapter Meeting

The HTCIA Carolinas Chapter will hold its next meeting as a web-based event on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 12 Noon to 1 PM EST. HTCIA was formed in response to the industry’s need to train and develop expertise in investigating high technology crimes.  By providing compelling training content through both physical and web-based chapter meetings, the Chapter strives to meet those objectives. We also hope that the convenience of web-based meetings encourages active participation by our members and attracts new members from both law enforcement and industry from across the region.   AGENDA: Chapter President, Chet Hosmer, will be presenting on Pro’s, Con’s and How to apply Machine Learning in Digital Investigations There is great promise, myths and confusion regarding Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
