Today in Astana, on the margins of the AEF: Global Challenges Summit 2018, Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev met with the famous physicist and futurist, scientist and science popularizer Michio Kaku.

The discussion covered issues of development of digital transformation and labor market, achievements of modern science and their practical use, revolutionary steps in the development of artificial intelligence, space, medicine and biology. The interlocutors also noted the high interest the young generation expresses in scientific developments.

For reference: Doctor Kaku is a bright science popularizer, a best-selling author, futurist, who is predicting how our everyday life will change thanks to the development of computers and high technologies. M.Kaku’s main goal in his scientific activity is the popularization of theoretical physics, futurology and astronomy.

The desire to convey complex scientific postulates in plain language to every listener led him to create a series of scientific TV programs (his documentary films on astronomy are broadcast on the Discovery channel and he often took part in the famous The Larry King Show). He is the author of three best-selling popular science books: Physics of the Impossible (2008), Physics of the Future (2011), The Future of the Mind (2014) and a number of other books.
