Michio Kaku is a famed theoretical physicist, futurist, best-selling author, and TV personality. A mesmerizing and humorous speaker he is sought by the world’s top organizations, from business to academia, from science to industry and from media to the arts.
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, commerce, and finance based on the latest research in science. He is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world.
Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University 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 University of California at Berkeley in 1972, and has been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. He has also taught at Harvard and Princeton. 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 and unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory. He is also the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory).
Dr. Kaku is the author of several international best-sellers. His most recent book, The Future of the Mind – The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance and Empower the Mind (Doubleday, 2014) explores what might be in store for our minds: practical telepathy and telekinesis; artificial memories implanted into our brains; and a pill that will make us smarter. All of this research forms a basis for his thrilling and entertaining lectures. In all of his books, Dr. Kaku explores the science of tomorrow: computers, artificial intelligence and reshaping our genetic inheritance. He explains how science is opening entirely new avenues for society and organizations at large. Physics of the Impossible (2008) 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. Parallel Worlds (2006), 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.
He has also written for Time, the Wall Street Journal, Sunday London Times, Discover, New Scientist, Astronomy, Wired and been quoted in Scientific American, the N.Y. Times, the Washington Post, the London Daily Telegraph, the London Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Wired, and Fast. He has written several op-ed pieces for the Wall Street Journal, as well as the Boston Globe.
Dr. Kaku also does considerable public speaking on international radio and TV. He has appeared on the Larry King Show, David Letterman, 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, and has appeared on numerous science specials. He has also hosted a series of major science documentaries for BBC-TV and BBC World. He is a regular host (and the public face) on the Science Channel/Discovery Channel.
Dr. Kaku conveys a contagious sense of the wonders of science of today and tomorrow. His humanistic approach to any subject matter propels audiences into the future with thought-provoking insights about science and technology, optimistic but realistic observations about the human condition, and sage advice for our own evolution and enlightenment.
