The Age of AI: Saving the World One Algorithm at a Time

Robert Downey Jr.

Overview

The Earth is changing faster now than ever before in human history, with rapid social change, extreme shifts in climate, and frightening mass extinctions. The world is facing big problems, but Artificial Intelligence may help us combat them.

From image recognition employed in crime prevention to bioengineered meat-free burgers, A.I. is quickly entering all aspects of our society. But the most exciting - and to many, the most intimidating - aspect of artificial intelligence is that it teaches itself to be better at its own job.

Actor Robert Downey Jr., best known for his role as Iron Man, now guides us through a world of real-life scientific miracles. This documentary shows us how, rather than fearing the potential of A.I. in the future, we can harness it to solve the problems of today.
