Speaker Bio

Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today. He is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein’s unified field theory, which Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete.

 

The other is to predict trends affecting business, medicine, finance, and our way of life, based on the latest research in science. He has written four NY Times Best Sellers. The latest is the Future of Humanity, which projects the future of the space program decades to centuries into the future.

 

His previous best seller, The Future of the Mind, hit #1 on the NY Times, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble Best Sellers List, making it the #1 hardcover, non-fiction book in the country. He appears regular on national and international TV, and hosts numerous science TV and radio programs.

 

His Facebook site has over 3 million fans, and over 650,000 people regularly receive his tweets.

 

Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City Univ. of New York. He graduated from Harvard University in 1968 (summa cum laude and 1st in his physics class). He received his Ph.D. in physics from the Univ. of Calif. at Berkeley in 1972, and been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years.

 

He has taught at Harvard and Princeton as well. His goal is the complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe.

 

The co-founder of string theory, a major branch of string theory, which is the leading candidate today for the theory of everything. His Ph.D. level textbooks are required reading at many of the world’s leading physics laboratories.

 

He is the author of several international best-sellers. Besides The Future of Humanity and The Future of the Mind, his other New York Times best-sellers include. Physics of the Future, and Physics of the Impossible. Other books include Hyperspace and Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century.

 

For Physics of the Future, he interviewed 300 of the world’s top scientists, many of them Nobel Laureates and directors of the largest scientific laboratories, about their vision for the next 20 to 100 years in computers, robotics, biotechnology, space travel, etc.

 

Dr. Michio Kaku | Global Futurist Speaker | Theoretical Physicist

 

These are the scientists who are inventing the future in their laboratories. The Physics of the Future gives the most authoritative and most authentic understanding of the world of the future.

 

His book, Parallel Worlds, about the latest in cosmology, which was a finalist for the prestigious Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction in the UK, and also a finalist for the Aventist science book award.

 

Other NY Times best seller, Physics of the Impossible, earned glowing reviews from the LA Times, New Scientist Magazine, Guardian Newspaper (UK) and many, many more. It was also the number 1 science book in the United States.

 

His best seller The Future of the Mind details the stunning breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are finally beginning to unravel the mysteries of the most complex object in the known universe, the human brain. Recent scientific advances in brain-machine interface have made possible a form of telepathy, telekinesis, recording and uploading memories, and even photographing thoughts.

 

Dr. Kaku also does considerable public speaking on international radio and has appeared on the Larry King Show, Nightline, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, CNN, CNN-Financial, ABC-TV News, Fox News, BBC-TV, BBC-Radio, PBS’s Nova and Innovation, Tech-TV.

 

He was featured in the full-length, 90 minute feature film, Me and Isaac Newton, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2001. In addition he was profiled in Tech-TV’s Big Thinkers series and is a regular commentator on that cable network. He has spoken on over 500 radio stations around the country.

 

He also hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 70 cities in the US and also the KU national satellite band and internet, called Science Fantastic. It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world.

 

He frequently keynotes major business conferences about the next 20 years in computers, finance, banking, and commerce. In particular, he has keynoted major conferences for major corporations, many of them controlling hundreds of billions of dollars in investments.

Keynote Topic #1

The Next 20 Years

Interacting with Computers, Telecommunication and AI in the Future
What will computers and the internet look like 20 years from now? Automobiles driving themselves, the internet in our contact lens, computers controlled by the mind, nanobots attacking cancer cells, all of medicine reduced to computer science.

These are just a few examples of the fast moving advancements in computers and telecommunication.

Keynote Topic #2

A Solar Revolution:

The Impending Energy Crisis

In this speech, the American theoretical physicist and co-founder of string field theory discusses the limitations around solar power as a main source of energy and the current problems involving the global dependency on fossil fuels. While many in the field of energy feel the time is right to make a societal shift to solar power

  • Physics of the Future

In this talk based around his newest book, Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100, speaker Michio Kaku offers a stunning and provocative vision of the future. Based on interviews with over 300 of the world`s top scientists, Kaku presents the revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, energy, quantum physics, and space travel that will change our lives and alter the course of civilization itself.

 

Kaku points out the weak links in the solar energy process that suggest it may not be the right time, such as low efficiency and a need for long-term storage capabilities.

Keynote Topic #3

Sexism in Science

Michio Kaku Discusses the Long History of Female Presence in Logics
Michio Kaku is known as a popularizer of science, engaging his audiences with humorous anecdotes and perspectives. Moving past the sometimes dry, analytical side of science, Kaku shares a piece of history with his audience

He discusses the history of women snubbed by the scientific community. Kaku analyzes the concept of dark matter, an idea of matter which acts to hold the universe together. In the 1960s, Veera Ruben conceptualized the idea of dark matter, but was ruthlessly disregarded for being female.
