Internet back story is focus of talk Monday

From page A6 | February 21, 2014 |

Any computer user who marvels at the power of modern Internet search engines can learn “the rest of the story” when Internet technologist Tom Elliott presents a program Monday for the Woodland Senior Center Computer Club. Elliott, a club member, titles the presentation “Human-Based Computation — A Look into the Work of Luis vonAhn.”

The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 1 p.m. at the Woodland Senior & Community Center, 2001 East St. Light refreshments will be served, and members will participate in a drawing for prizes including tickets to the annual Scottish Games in Woodland in April. Membership costs $12 per year.

“Today you can search for pretty much anything — including images — by typing a few descriptive keywords,” Elliott says. “People will learn they may have unwittingly helped with some major Internet projects — perhaps the Google Book project, or even digitizing the entire New York Times archives.”

He promises the discussion will not be overly technical, and is suitable for anyone interested in how groups of computers are being used for the good of all mankind. A lively question-and-answer period is anticipated.
