Predicting the next 100 years -- Future of the computer : mind over matter -- Future of AI : rise of the machines -- Future of medicine : perfection and beyond -- Nanotechnology : everything from nothing? -- Future of energy : energy from the stars -- Future of space travel : to the stars -- Future of wealth : winners and losers -- Future of humanity : planetary civilization -- A day in the life in 2100. Renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku details the developments in computer technology, artificial intelligence, medicine, space travel, and more, that are poised to happen over the next hundred years. He also considers how these inventions will affect the world economy, addressing the key questions: Who will have jobs? Which nations will prosper? Kaku interviews three hundred of the world's top scientists- working in their labs on astonishing prototypes. He also takes into account the rigorous scientific principles that regulate how quickly, how safely, and how far technologies can advance. In this book, Kaku forecasts a century of earthshaking advances in technology that could make even the last centuries' leaps and bounds seem insignificant. -- from Back Cover.
