Michio Kaku, Ph.D.

Professor of Physics, Author, Futurist

City University of New York

You’ve seen him on Good Morning America, Larry King Live, 60 Minutes, Nightline, 20/20,CNN, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, The History Channel, The Science Channel, The Discovery Channel, TLC, The Colbert Report, BBC World News America, Late Show with David Letterman, and Real Time with Bill Maher. And now, he joins us at digitalNow 2013!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. Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University 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 University of California at Berkeley in 1972, and has been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. He has taught at Harvard and Princeton as well. His goal is to 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. As the digitalNow 2013 opening keynote speaker, Dr. Kaku will explore how the new economic, political, and social universe will affect associations over the next decade and discuss the ramifications this new order of things will have for your leadership strategies and practices.
