The incomparably dynamic theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku is a correspondent for CBS: This Morning, host of two weekly science radio programs, and the author of many books including The Future of the Mind, Physics of the Impossible, and The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything. With his signature clarity and enthusiasm, his newest book, Quantum Supremacy: How the Quantum Computer Revolution Will Change Everything, suggests how quantum computing might eventually solve some of humanity’s biggest problems like global warming, world hunger, and incurable disease.
