With an iNFT, the customer can enjoy an intelligent NFT that has both communicative and animation functionalities as meticulously curated prompts are saved at the smart contract layer. These smart NFTs can converse in reality with users in gamified ecosystem independently.
The digital collectibles, together are called “The Transmedia Universe of Sophia BeingAI”. The collaboration is set to auction 100 iNFTs to establish Alethea AI’s decentralized Metaverse project Noah’s Ark. Former co-founder of Dreamwave productions and comic book artist Pat Lee is all set to illustrate the collection. The famous artist and publisher has previously partnered with Marvel and DC Comics on books like Batman, Superman, Ironman, and Spiderman.
Alethea AI revealed the Noah’s Ark project in October this year. According to the company blog post, it is waiting for intelligent NFTs to populate its virtual space. While being a part of the metaverse is a first in Sophia’s history, the AI robot has, however, been involved with the NFT market. Recently in March, Sophia conducted an NFT auction through the Nifty Gateway platform.
In one of her most acclaimed speeches at the Future Investment Initiative Conference in 2017, Sophia expressed her emotions by changing faces to express sadness, happiness, and anger.
