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, commerce, and finance based on the latest research in science.
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.
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. He is 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. He has two New York Times best-sellers, "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. 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, was a finalist for the prestigious Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction, and also a finalist for the Aventist science book award. His other NY Times best seller, "Physics of the Impossible", earned glowing reviews from the LA Times, New Scientist Magazine, Guardian Newspaper (UK) and many more. It was the number 1 science book in the United States. His web page registered over 110 million page hits in just the past four years.
Dr. Kaku has appeared on the Larry King Show, Nightline, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, CNN, CNN-Financial, ABC-TV News, Fox News, BBC-TV, PBS’s Nova and Innovation, Tech-TV and more. Dr. Kaku also hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 130 cities in the US and also the KU national satellite band and internet, called Science Fantastic.
