Dr. Kaku frequently keynotes tech, science, association and business conferences about the next 20-100 years in computers, finance, the mind, banking, medicine, nanotechnology, education, engineering and commerce.
The Future of the Mind
In this talk based on his new book, The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind, Dr. Kaku illustrates 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. Dr. Kaku takes audiences on a grand tour of what the future might hold, explaining how the brain functions and how technologies will change our daily lives. He will present a radically new way to think about “consciousness” and provide fresh insights into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness. Learn how what was once solely thought of as science fiction has become a startling reality.
Physics of the Future
In this talk based around his 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.

Explorations in Science airs every first, third, and fifth Fridays of each month and is podcast every Tuesday.
Theoretical Physicist — Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory. He received a B.S. (summa cum laude) from Harvard University in 1968 where he came first in his physics class. He went on to the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972. In 1973, he held a lectureship at Princeton University.
Michio continues Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism.
He is the author of several scholarly, Ph.D. level textbooks and has had more than 70 articles published in physics journals, covering topics such as superstring theory, supergravity, supersymmetry and hadronic physics.
Professor of Physics — He holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York (CUNY), where he has taught for over 25 years. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, as well as New York University (NYU).
