about this book

Now in Paperback. A Library Journal Best Scientific & Technical Book.

In Visions, Michio Kaku examines the great scientific revolutions that have reshaped the 20th century-quantum mechanics, biogenetics, and artificial intelligence-and shows how they will change science and society in the 21st century.  In Section I, Kaku explores the evolution and development of computers and artificial intelligence, and offers a theory about how computer science will evolve.  In Section II, he discusses biogenetics and ponders how the completion of the human genome project will affect humankind's war against disease and aging.  Section III explores how quantum physicists are perfecting new ways to harness the matter and energy of the universe.
