In this talk, I would like to show you some of the recent developments in superstring theory, in particular the relation between gauge theory and string theory. String theory was originally invented as a theory of hadrons, but it was superseded by the gauge theory. It then found its employment in quantum gravity. Now it seems that string theory and gauge theory are meeting again, and I hope this new direction will provide an interesting arena where lattice gauge theorists and string theorists can interact and exchange ideas, benefiting both.
