Ironman actor Robert Downey Jr. to create a YouTube series about AI

There are still many people who all that Artificial Intelligence sounds like science fiction. And nothing better to spread the benefits (and possible terrors) of a field as vast as Artificial Intelligence than asking Ironman himself for help. Robert Downey Jr. will star in a series dedicated exclusively to the field of AI through YouTube Red, a service that we still do not have news about in our country and which is basically a payment service on YouTube to watch creative programs own.

Artificial Intelligence, as told by Robert Downey Jr

The new series does not yet have an official title and will consist of a total of 8 episodes, each lasting one hour . In the episodes, Robert Downey Jr. will interview personalities from technology and science to try to address the subject of Artificial Intelligence in all its aspects. In addition, it will include topics on philosophy and any other aspect in which AI is involved. Where does it come from and where is it going? Are we to fear for our jobs? Will the Terminator movie be a revealing glimpse of our nearest future?


In addition to Artificial Intelligence, the series will touch on other subjects that are closely related to it, such as robotics. Something that Downey Jr knows quite a bit about, having donned the Ironman armor on several occasions. Robert Downey Jr.'s wife, Susan Downey and partner of his production company, Team Downey, admits that “the goal in creating this series is to explore the world of Artificial Intelligence in a way that is as objective and accessible as you can " .

For her part, YouTube's global director of original content has described the show as a fascinating journey through the world of Artificial Intelligence and where this field is headed in the future. The series will begin airing sometime next year . By then, we hope to have access to YouTube Red in our country to enjoy this new series by Robert Downey Jr.
