CNN’s Nick Watt Investigates “AI and the Future of Humanity” for The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper



 NEW YORK, NY – (November 27, 2023) – The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper, a CNN Original, returns with an enlightening report from CNN National Correspondent Nick Watt on both the promises and the dangers of artificial intelligence. “AI and the Future of Humanity” will premiere on Sunday, December 3 at 8pm ET/PT on CNN.

The AI revolution is already underway and changing many aspects of human life, from creating art, to fighting wars, to curing disease. But leading experts warn this powerful technology is advancing at an alarming rate, posing serious risks to humanity itself.  Watt takes viewers inside the global race to develop this technology and the attempts to contain it.

“AI is already inside and all over our lives,” said Watt. “You can’t hide. All of us have to face it and figure out how we’ll fit into this inevitable future. I was scared. Now at least I know what’s coming.”

Watt crosses the globe tracking some of the most stunning and innovative uses of AI, from a next generation Hollywood film studio to a research team in Switzerland making history by restoring a paralyzed man’s ability to walk. Watt also speaks with the experts on the cutting edge of these technologies now working to combat AI’s threats to society and democracy, and who are calling for urgent government regulation of the tech.

The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper is executive produced by Susan Chun.

The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper will stream live for pay TV subscribers via, CNN connected TV and mobile apps on Sunday, December 3. “AI and the Future of Humanity” will also be available on demand beginning Monday, December 4 to pay TV subscribers via, CNN connected TV and mobile apps, and Cable Operator Platforms.
