Cosmos and Creation

We are pleased to announce the program for the 42st annual Cosmos & Creation conference. This will be held the weekend of June 14-16, 2024 at Loyola University Maryland and the lecture and work schedule will be as usual.  

We have engaged Professor Anne Foerst to speak on Artificial Intelligence. Professor Foerst will discuss Artificial Intelligence and Large Language Models: How they work, the problems they cause and Theological Implications. What will this mean for Christianity, and how will individual Christians integrate their new­ found spiritual experience into the broader dimensions of their faith?

Conference Theme: Artificial Intelligence and Large Language Models

Professor Anne Foerst will give two lectures:  

Large Language Models (LLM): How LLMs Work and The Potential Difficulties

June 14th, Friday Evening Lecture 1 in McManus Theater at 7:30 PM

Large Language Models (LLM): The Theological Implications

10:30 AM – 12:00 Noon Saturday, June 15, 2024

The post-luncheon talk will be given by David H. Gordon, Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy, Loyola University Maryland, titled, "The Implications of Evolution for Metaphysics" at 1:30 PM on June 15, 2024.
