Please try again later. Paperback Verified Purchase. Interesting read by a man who credibly predicts new discoveries or devices already on the horizon and projecting where technology and life will lead if things continue as expected.
Of course, nobody knows the future. Cataclysms, world nuclear war, etc. His book assumes that society and technology continues on its trajectory. Kaku is a recognized authority connected to many fields of science, so he is not merely an outsider writing a book. He also recognizes the boundaries of our technology. Even in a hundred years, he suggests, we will not have robuts capable of creative thought.
We will not travel faster than light, etc.
He may be too optimistic about human nature. While recognizing how some technology can be misused by criminals or hostile governments, his optimistic outlook wants to believe such problems will be solved or their impacts minimal.
I am a little skeptical about this. This is one of those books you cannot put down. Since it is already a few years old, a few of Kaku's predictions have already come to pass, although he did miss the oil glut we are now experiencing.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Michio Kaku demonstrates the breadth of his education and skills in providing the outlook for technogy in the future and provides a timeline for each development. He forecasts the demise of the advancements made under Moores law and warns of the slowdown in computer purchases as a result, but goes on to explain a redefinition of the computer and its alternatives.
I suspect the growth of demand for computers will be supported by the increased application and methods by which they will be used. Michio Kaku reminds us of the importance of appropriate response to difficult geopolitics, support for foreign immigrants in maintaining a competitive moat in high tech, the importance of improvements in scientific education training, and the role physics has and will continue to play in the development of technology in the future.
He alludes that the ranking a country will hold in the political power situation worldwide will depend on thier progress in scientific based technology. I highly recommend this book both for a enjoyable read and for the wealth of detailed information it contains and the objectivity and demonstration of skill the author provides throughout.
As an author currently working on a post-apocalyptic thriller where the apocalypse occurs when mankind has early 22nd century technology, I found Dr.
Kaku's work to be extraordinarily helpful in attempting to ground that technology in potential realism. However, this book is much more than a useful tool for research, it is an amazing look into the potentialities of the future, and Dr. Kaku's writing style makes the information quite digestible to the casual science fan.
Let me say first in this review that I am also a physicist, and from my point of view, Kaku seems a bit 'exuberant' with his pronouncements. I mean that when he makes unsupported statements, I am not sure how much I can believe them.
For example, early on in this book he ascribes the fact that we haven't moved to a paperless office as due to the underlying problem that we have 'primitive' minds. But, recent research shows that this is not actually true, there simply are some aspects of reading on pages that are not yet well replaced by reading from a screen.
For example, having a good sense of where you are in the book. Another example: He says "augmented reality" will allow us to see inside objects, but forgets that this is only possible if the computer already knows what's supposed to be in there. For example, if the computer has building plans, it can give you a virtual view of what it should look like inside, but you won't see the actual insides. In contrast, the areas in this book where he does report the work of others seem more valuable, in at least one can follow them up to find details.
For example, he discusses Parviz and his development at the University of Washington of augmented reality presented on an active contact lens Parviz has since gone on to head the Google Glass project.
Kaku also reports work on tiny interstellar spaceships which I think are a very likely possibility. In his discussion of space travel, in general, I think he underestimates the extent to which robots will do space travel for us. Overall, most of the ideas he presents of those without attribution to others are not presented with enough detail to evaluate them on their own merits -- one is left with relying on Kaku's being a physicist, and as I say, I have seen enough examples of his exaggerating or confusing several ideas together on TV science channel to be wary of what he says without these details.
