Dr Michio Kaku

Fee Band

In his day job, Kaku is an authority on ‘string fields’ and continues Einstein’s goal to unite the fundamental forces of nature in one theory. He is also a thoroughly accessible writer, host of a popular US science phone-in and presenter of BBC 4’s Visions of the Future. Kaku discusses everything from artificial intelligence and teleportation to the ‘human body shop.’


“Hey, Science, where are my superpowers?”…Dr Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and a futurist. In his corporate presentations, he explains the factors that will shape the science and technologies, and therefore the societies, of the future.

In his humorous and provocative speech, Dr Kaku makes complex ideas colourful and accessible to everyone. He discusses superstrings, supergravity and other theories at the cutting edge of science. His scope includes time travel, dimensional windows, parallel universes and alien life forms. In a more down-to-earth business context, he examines how commodity-based capitalism will turn to dust, with intellectual capital eventually dominating commerce.

Dr Kaku is the author of numerous books and articles, including the bestsellers Hyperspace and Visions: How Science Will Revolutionise The 21st Century. His recent publication, The Physics Of The Impossible, stayed in the New York Times bestseller list for five weeks. In it, he examines the technologies of invisibility, teleportation, precognition, time travel and more. He ranks these seemingly impossible technologies according to when, if ever, they might become reality.

Dr Kaku is an internationally recognised authority on theoretical physics and the environment. He is a prolific television presenter and interviewee and hosts a popular New York radio phone-in show that covers everything from ozone depletion to the science in science fiction.

Michio Kaku’s ultimate goal is to help complete Einstein's dream of a ‘theory of everything’: a single equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe.

We were joined at 87 Barts Close by three brilliant speakers on a panel that delved into the complex world of Artificial Intelligence. Over the hour our panellists de-mystified AI, speaking about AI’s immense promise for enhancing our lives, alongside the apprehension it has generated regarding job security, privacy infringement, and ethical considerations.
