Robert Downey Jr. demonstrates that he is a real-life Iron Man by setting out to clean up Earth in ten years

It’s not unreasonable to suggest that Earth might use a superhero given the extent of environmental threat currently facing our globe.

Thankfully, we might actually have one. Robert Downey Jr. is stepping up to the plate when it comes to changing the course of Earth’s future—and no, we’re not just talking about him in Iron Man mode. The actor seems to have ambitious aspirations to contribute to environmental cleanup before it’s too late.

Surprisingly, though, things only get better. With a move that would make Tony Stark, his superhero alter ego, proud, Downey Jr. intends to use an AI ace in the hole.

Prepare yourself because this particular news may sound more like something from science fiction than from everyday life.

It has been reported that Downey Jr. recently declared his intention to form a new organisation called The Footprint Coalition. With the aid of artificial intelligence (AI), the aforementioned organisation hopes to clean up the entire world in ten years starting in 2020.

During his speech at the Amazon Re: Mars conference, the actor expressed his conviction that, when applied responsibly, artificial intelligence has the potential to benefit humanity.

He was cited as saying, “With robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years,” before expressing gratitude to the researchers and scientists who had made his concept possible.

God, I adore specialists. He compared them to Wikipedia with flaws in their personalities.

In terms of specifics, we don’t have much information. If Downey Jr. is to be believed, the Footprint Coalition will launch in 2020, and a website has been set up so that people can follow its progress.
