Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr has announced a new initiative to clean up the world using robotics, AI and technology.

The actor announced the new initiative – the Footprint Coalition – at Amazon’s Machine Learning, Automation, Robotics and Space Conference in Las Vegas.

“Recently, I was at a table with super smart, impressive, expert folks about six months ago, and the following statement was made: ‘between robotics and technology, we could probably clean up the planet significantly, if not entirely, within a decade’,” said the actor.

“Quick disclaimer, I don’t pretend to understand the complexities we face as a species, just because I portrayed a genius in my professional life,” he added.

Downey said he hopes to launch the new initiative in April 2020.
