CBS Interactive’s CNET and Vice’s award-winning tech outlet, Motherboard, are working together to produce a new series that explores the tech of the future. The show, titled “Dear Future,” will discuss topics that include space travel, the ethics of genome editing, internet freedom, the future of virtual reality, robotics, artificial intelligence and the future of transportation.
“As the world’s number one consumer tech media brand, our global audience looks to us to discover the unique stories that demonstrate how today’s technology will inform our future,” said Mark Larkin, Senior VP and General Manager of CNet. “This partnership enables us to combine the editorial expertise of CNET and Motherboard to produce new and unique content that showcases the possible.”
The series will run on both CNET and Motherboard and is sponsored by Microsoft Surface and Audi. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“It’s gratifying to have found a kindred spirit in CNET, who can help us produce the most groundbreaking tech-focused stories around, expressed Thobey Campion, Head of Publishing at Vice. “The partnership also provides a very unique opportunity to bring this wealth of editorial and video to a greatly expanded global audience, ultimately waking people up to innovations that will impact all of humanity.”
The first collaboration launches today with a look at the future of mind-controlled computers in a piece titled ‘How We’ll Eventually Control Everything With Our Minds,’ the first in a collection of long-form pieces.
