January 25, 2012

Full video, from SAP’s Sapphire Now/TedEd conference in Madrid, Spain, November 8-10, 2011. (The Big Think panel discussion transcript is here.):

The72tube | Michio Kaku, Ph.D., speaks about how America’s poor educational system has created a shortage of Americans who can perform highly skilled technology jobs. As a result, America’s H-1B “genius visa” is used to attract immigrants who are skilled enough to perform these jobs.

Big Think | Booz & Company’s Chief and Marketing and Knowledge Officer Tom Stewart moderated the SAP Sapphire Now event’s Big Think panel — made up of Michael Schrage, MIT Sloan School of Management research fellow; theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku; Peter Diamandis, founder and chairman of the X-Prize Foundation; and Isabel Aguilera, former CEO of Google’s Spain & Portugal operations.
