Keynote Topics

Interacting with Computers, Telecommunication and AI in the Future
What will computers and the internet look like 20 years from now?

Automobiles driving themselves, the internet in our contact lens, computers controlled by the mind, nanobots attacking cancer cells, all of medicine reduced to computer science.

These are just a few examples of the fast moving advancements in computers and telecommunication. 

The Impending Energy Crisis
In this Dr. Michio Kaku speech, the American theoretical physicist and co-founder of string field theory discusses the limitations around solar power as a main source of energy and the current problems involving the global dependency on fossil fuels.

While many in the field of energy feel the time is right to make a societal shift to solar power, Dr. Michio Kaku points out the weak links in the solar energy process that suggest it may not be the right time, such as low efficiency and a need for long-term storage capabilities.

Physics of the Future
In this talk based around his newest book, Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100, speaker Michio Kaku offers a stunning and provocative vision of the future.

Based on interviews with over 300 of the world`s top scientists, Dr. Michio Kaku presents the revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, energy, quantum physics, and space travel that will change our lives and alter the course of civilization itself.

Dr. Michio Kaku is known as a popularizer of science, engaging his audiences with humorous anecdotes and perspectives.

Moving past the sometimes dry, analytical side of science, Kaku shares a piece of history with his audience

He discusses the history of women snubbed by the scientific community.

Dr. Michio Kaku analyzes the concept of dark matter, an idea of matter which acts to hold the universe together. In the 1960s, Veera Ruben conceptualized the idea of dark matter, but was ruthlessly disregarded for being female.
