Robert Downey Jr. set to host YouTube series on artificial intelligence
Robert Downey Jr. will be working with YouTube for an upcoming series about artificial intelligence (A.I.).
The “Iron Man” star has partnered with the video-sharing website to host and narrate the planned project, Variety reported yesterday, May 15. It is set to be released by the site’s paid streaming subscription service, YouTube Red.
The series will feature experts in science, philosophy, technology, engineering, among others who will tell the story of A.I. It will also discuss A.I.’s impact on today’s world and how it will affect the future.
Downey will be joined by his wife, film producer Susan Levin. “Robert and I share a curiosity for A.I., a complicated and often polarizing subject,” Levin said in the report. ““Our aim is to explore A.I. through a lens of objectivity and accessibility, in a thoroughly bold, splashy, and entertaining way.”
The eight-episode series will premiere sometime in 2019. Katrina Hallare/JB
