Technology creates wealth, wealth creates bubbles, after bubbles pop, another sets of technology / wealth appear… and it carries on. Dr. Michio Kaku, Professor of Theoretical Physics at City University of New York, shares his vision of mankind’s future at Abu Dhabi’s Manarat Al Saadiyat as part of The Sheikha Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Forum for New Ideas.
Dr. Michio Kaku
Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author and scientist of world renown. He is the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York. His goal is to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything”, a single equation that unifies the 4 fundamental forces of the universe. From interviews to documentaries, Dr. Kaku has explained the most fascinating and complex ideas in science today. On television he has been featured on the PBS documentaries: Einstein Revealed, Stephen Hawking’s Universe, and Science Odyssey.
His technical books are required reading for scores of Ph.D. graduate students in major physics laboratories around the world. His weekly radio programme Explorations in Science focusses on topics such as frontiers in physics, black holes, time machines, hyperspace, the human genome project and genetic engineering.
Using the cutting edge research of today’s foremost scientists, Michio explores the science of tomorrow: computers, artificial intelligence, reshaping our genetic inheritance. He explains how science is opening entirely new avenues for society and organisations at large and provides valuable advice on how to prepare for change.
A mesmerising and humorous speaker, he conveys a contagious sense of the wonders of science at the most prestigious conferences world-wide.
