EVENT OVERVIEW: World Famous Quantum Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku will give a Multimedia Presentation about his New Book The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind. Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering & Technology
ABOUT MICHIO KAKU: Dr. Michio Kaku is the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the CUNY Graduate Center, a leader in the field of Theoretical Physics, and Co-Founder with Dr. Brian Greene of String Field Theory. Dr. Michio Kaku and Dr. Brian Greene are Rock Stars in Quantum Physics. Dr. Michio Kaku is the Author of several widely acclaimed Science Books, including Parallel Worlds, Visions, Beyond Einstein, Hyperspace and Physics of the Impossible, the basis for his Science Channel TV show, Sci Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible and the host of two radio programs, Explorations and Science Fantastic. His Books have been translated all over the world. He has written for Time, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Discover Magazine, The London Daily Telegraph, New Scientist Magazine and other periodcals.
ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE MIND: The New York Times Bestselling Author of Physics of the Impossible, Physics of the Future and Hyperspace tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain. For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist. The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. One day we might have a "smart pill" that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe. Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness. With Dr. Kaku's deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, The Future of the Mind is a scientific tour de force, an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.
