15th Dec, 2014 / Netlaw Media, News

Following keynote presentations by some of the world’s best known legal, commercial and technology experts including Sir Tim Berners Lee, Ray Kurzweil and James Caan, Netlaw Media is proud to announce that world famous futurist, scientist and theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, has been confirmed by Netlaw Media as Keynote Speaker for the British Legal Technology Forum 2015 in London.

Dr Michio Kaku is a celebrated futurist and Theoretical Physicist who once built a particle accelerator in his mum’s garage.

Michio has done a huge amount to popularise complex scientific issues in the United States and around the world and is a bestselling author, radio presenter and speaker as well as being professor of physics at the City University of New York.

Inspired by the death of Einstein when Kaku was only 8, his goal has been to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything” – a single equation which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe. As a teenager he went to the National Science Fair in high school with a home-made atom smasher built in his parents’ garage.

Since then he has founded a branch of string theory and developed a reputation as one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists but it is his work as a popular scientist that has taken the world by storm.

His books have captured the public imagination, conjuring up an exciting world of revolutionary science and magical technology. His best sellers include Hyperspace, Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century, Parallel Worlds, Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future 2011.

Hyperspace was voted one of the best science books of the year by both The New York Times and The Washington Post and Parallel Worlds was a finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction in the UK.

Michio hosts 2 radio programmes and regularly appears on popular television shows and channels including Good Morning America, Larry King Live, 60 Minutes, Nightline, 20/20, Naked Science, BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Al Jazeera English, Fox News, The History Channel, The Science Channel, The Discovery Channel, The Colbert Report, Coast To Coast AM, Real Time with Bill Maher, the Late Show with David Letterman and many more.

He attended Harvard University and then got a Physics Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley. He has lectured at both Princeton and New York University.

With the British Legal Technology Forum 2015 expected to reach full capacity prior to the event, delegate passes for the British Legal Technology Forum 2015 are limited and now available from the official event website www.britishlegalitforum.com
