The Age of AI: How Far Is Too Far?

Robert Downey Jr.

Overview

Have you ever questioned what artificial intelligence is and how it works? Turns out, you're not alone. Today, A.I. is still wildly misunderstood by the general public – surrounded by an air of mysticism, between promises of grandeur and the dystopian potential to end civilization as we know it. This documentary sets out to debunk the most common misconceptions about A.I., while showing off some of the latest advancements in the field.

Narrated by Robert Downey Jr., science enthusiast and prominent actor best known for his role as Iron Man, the documentary introduces the cutting-edge technology that might revolutionize medicine, psychology, music, and more.

The debut episode follows Soul Machines CEO Mark Sagar, who swapped a successful career as an Oscar-winning special effects artist for a business that creates realistic, human-like avatars. Between building the world's most lifelike simulation of a toddler, BabyX, and helping Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am create an autonomous digital version of himself, Sagar and Downey explore the frontiers of human cooperation with intelligent computers.

"We've been collaborating with machines since the dawn of technology. Even today, in some sense, we are all cyborgs already. The human and the machine decision making are very tightly interwoven, and this will only increase as we go forward."
