Michio Kaku’s Speech Topics

  • How AI and High Tech Will Conquer the Coronavirus

    AI excels at processing vast amounts of raw data, and then finding unexpected correlations and causes. This will allow scientists to eventually defeat the virus. Currently, the virus is always about 2 weeks to 1 month ahead of hospitals, hence hundreds of thousands have needlessly died. But AI can allow scientists to:

    • spot outbreaks in real time, by tracking spikes in thermometers connected to the internet, giving scientists the ability to see hotspots as they form.
    • Google searches for tell-tale words (e.g. fever, can’t breath, cough) can be detected by AI by scanning the entire internet, to detect hotspots in real time
    • Facebook allows scientists to track superspreaders
    • cell phone data can be used to track movements of millions of people, to see who is practicing social distancing.
    • drones can be used to detect fevers in huge sports stadiums with thousands of people.

    Furthermore, high tech has allowed scientists to:

    • develop new therapeutics which stop the virus from multiplying by identifying its choke points when it reproduces
    • track mutations among the 30 known varieties of COVID-19
    • create vaccines at an unprecedented rate, using RNA genomics.

    In the future, tiny super sensors will be distributed throughout the world, detecting the presence of new viruses in real time as they emerge.

  • The Future of the Mind

    In this talk based on his newest book, The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind, Dr. Michio Kaku illustrates the stunning breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are finally 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 will change our daily lives. He will present a radically new way to think about “consciousness” and provide fresh insights into mental illness, artificial intelligence, and alien consciousness. Now, learn how what was once solely thought of as science fiction has become a startling reality.

  • 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, 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.
