Amazon hosted its MARS (Machine learning, Automation, Robotics, and Space) conference in Las Vegas where Avenger: Endgame‘s Robery Downey Jr. took the stage to talk about his future goals to improve the environment.
Downey intends to launch a new foundation called The Footprint Coalition that would utilize robotics and nanotechnology to effectively clean the planet. Operations are expected to begin in April 2020 with an aim to clean the world in the next decade. Although details of said operation or partnerships were not announced, Downey instead used the moment to explain the benefits of artificial intelligence—a topic he’s shown interest in as host of a YouTube Red series on the topic.
