All women are invited to attend Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views to hear Bill Sams, a retired tech executive, academician and current investor.

He will give the presentation, “Future of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence,” at the next SWERV meeting from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Tuesday March 12 at Filipino American Hall.

Sams was literally at ground zero of the beginning years of the computer revolution when he began his career in the early 1970s at Fairchild Semiconductor. He was involved in several startups and chalked up 25 years in senior management positions in Silicon Valley. Following an early retirement he and his wife Janet sailed the South Pacific before returning to his alma mater Ohio University for an additional 10 years career.

Among many positions, Sams served as associate provost for information technology and chief information officer of the university. He is a founding member of the Ohio Tech Angel Fund, one of the largest angel investment groups in America.

SWERV notes he will bring both a depth of background and keen current attention to possible future tech development, including that of robotics and artificial intelligence.
