Reflections of an Information Scientist on the Science versus Religion debate with with Professor Alan Gillies

Date: 3 October 2012 Time: 2.00-4.00 pm

Venue: Cavendish Colloquium, Faraday Building

This guest lecture will explore the debate between Science and Religion from the perspective of an information scientist. Professor Gillies will argue that there is a lack of dialogue in much of the current debate which is highly polarised.

He will seek to clarify the scope and nature of the problem and use reflections from an information science career drawing on arguments from artificial

intelligence, mathematical modelling and information systems theories to construct a more effective framework for debate. It draws on work carried out within a

programme of study which included a short research fellowship at Harris

Manchester College Oxford and culminated in the publication of Theological

Reflections of An Information Scientist.
