This evening world-renowned futurist and author Dr Michio Kaku gave New Jerseyans gathered at Liberty Science Center a glimpse into the future. As part of the NJCU Presidential Speaker Series celebrating New Jersey’s 350th anniversary, Dr Kaku spoke about Moore’s Law and how computers of the future will be so commonplace that they’ll seem to be “everywhere and nowhere”.
Liberty Science Center CEO Paul Hoffman introduces Dr Michio Kaku before his lecture.
Dr Kaku was introduced by Liberty Science Center CEO Paul Hoffman who joined NJCU President Sue Henderson, and Jersey City Mayor and Liberty Science Center board member Steve Fulop in welcoming Dr Kaku to New Jersey.
One of the many topics that Dr Kaku discussed was the future of robotic surgery. In the future, Dr Kaku predicts, surgeons will not need to be present in the room to perform a surgery and surgical procedures will be tailored to you through your genetics. Students visiting Liberty Science Center for our Live From surgery programs already get a very early look at how this technology will work.
Immediately following the lecture, Dr Kaku took some time to answer questions from the crowd and sign copies of his books for fans. A ceremonial cake, made by Buddy Valastro, was cut removing all doubt that this was, indeed, an official New Jersey event.
We’d like to thank all of our Liberty Science Center fans who purchased tickets to come see the lecture, and congratulate NJCU on an excellent Speaker Series event! Check Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more photos from the evening.
