Millennial-focused brand Vice and the Council on Foreign Relations are teaming on a special exclusively for HBO that examines how automation and artificial intelligence are disrupting the world and the nature of work.

Vice Special Reports: The Future of Work looks at how entire industries are facing radical upheaval and how these changes are impacting the global economy. Vice correspondents interview a variety of experts, from Nobel Laureate economists, to CEOs and workers who will experience disruption in their jobs in the years to come. They document how industries which seemed immune to automation will feel the effects of AI and algorithms.

The special also delves into what policymakers and politicians are doing to address this shift in the nature of work. The Future of Work also examines emerging solutions to address the potential issues that arise from these technological changes, including adopting a universal basic income and job retraining.

Vice Special Reports: The Future of Work premieres April 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on HBO, HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
