Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the world’s leading experts in theoretical physics and a futurist whose mission is to make science accessible and understandable. He is attempting to complete Einstein's unified field theory, and he is known for using the latest scientific research to predict trends in business and finance.
A professor of theoretical physics at the City College of New York and CUNY Graduate Center, Dr. Kaku has written eight books, including three New York Times bestsellers and one that was voted a best science book of 1994 by The New York Times and The Washington Post. His weekly radio show “Science Fantastic” airs in more than 100 markets and on iTunes podcast. He also hosts a weekly radio program in New York City and on satellite radio.
Dr. Kaku was born in San Jose, California, and while in high school, assembled a particle accelerator for a science fair project with the goal to generate "a beam of gamma rays powerful enough to create antimatter." At the National Science Fair in Albuquerque, New Mexico, he attracted the attention of physicist Edward Teller, who mentored Dr. Kaku and awarded him with an engineering scholarship. Dr. Kaku graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968 and was first in his physics class. He attended the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, and received a Ph.D. in 1972.
Dr. Kaku researched quantum mechanics in the mid-1970s for the department of physics at the City College of The City University of New York and currently holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the college. He has had more than 70 articles published in journals such as Physical Review that have covered topics such as superstring theory, supergravity, supersymmetry, and hadronic physics. In 1974, he co-authored the first papers describing string theory. In 1979, Dr. Kaku had a role in breaking the story about the radiation leak at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Simi Valley.

Comments from Dr. Kaku′s speaking engagements include:
“He’s a spellbinding speaker. He had the crowd mesmerized.”
“He electrified the audience with his glimpse into the next 20 years.”
“His visionary look into the next 20 years was the highlight of the conference.”
“People couldn’t stop talking about his speech. It was truly a tour de force.”
“This was the best speech at a business conference that I have ever heard.”
“All our clients thoroughly enjoyed listening to this remarkable speaker.”
Although Dr. Kaku deals in complex scientific concepts on a daily basis, he has not forgotten how to communicate those to a non-scientific audience. In fact, he excels at helping audiences understand how scientific breakthroughs and discoveries are impacting everyday life and why it’s important to understand these concepts.
The Future of the Mind
In this talk based on his book The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind, Dr. Kaku illustrates stunning breakthroughs in neuroscience that are 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 are changing our daily lives. He presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and provides fresh insights into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.
Physics of the Future
This presentation based on his book, Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100, offers a stunning and provocative vision of the future. Based on interviews with more than 300 of the world's top scientists, Dr. Kaku presents revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, energy, quantum physics, and space travel that are changing our lives and altering the course of civilization.

The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind
The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. One day we might have a "smart pill" that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe.
Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.
Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel
A fascinating exploration of the science of the impossible—from death rays and force fields to invisibility cloaks—revealing to what extent such technologies might be achievable decades or millennia into the future.
One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. In PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.
From teleportation to telekinesis, Kaku uses the world of science fiction to explore the fundamentals—and the limits—of the laws of physics as we know them today. He ranks the impossible technologies by categories—Class I, II, and III, depending on when they might be achieved, within the next century, millennia, or perhaps never.
Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos
In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, bestselling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own. Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. If M-theory is proven correct, we may perhaps finally find answer to the question, “What happened before the big bang?” This is an exciting and unforgettable introduction into the new cutting-edge theories of physics and cosmology from one of the pre-eminent voices in the field.
