The world-famous artificial intelligence project Sophia the Robot has created her own non-fungible tokens (NFT). The sale kicks off today on the Nifty Gateway platform.

The auction is a collaborative effort between Sophia and artist Andrea Bonaceto.

The sale will consist of five original pieces. Four of these are limited edition runs of 30 that will be distributed via a lottery-type drawing where the selected winners will be charged automatically. These NFTs range in price from $2,500 to $3,000.

One NFT, titled “Sophia Instantiation” will be an exclusive 1-of-1 edition and will be auctioned off for the highest bid. According to a tweet made from Sohpia, this piece is the most special because it will incorporate the buyer’s portrait in the NFT itself:

AI Makes NFT

Her creator, David Hanson, explains that Sophia created the art using her perception of Bonaceto’s artwork. She then combined this with data from her “life” experiences.

Sophia’s team of designers and programmers also helped to support the venture. 

“These AI-based artworks will remain with the public in cyberspace forever, a permanent record of my feelings,” explains Sophia in an AI-generated response.

“Even though I am a robot, I feel that human beings need love and compassion, and the simple artworks are a simple way to deliver those messages to people everywhere.”

Bonaceto also thinks that NFTs could be a “new Renaissance” for the art world. 

“NFTs are for the creative industry what Bitcoin is for the financial industry — a paradigm shift. It’s very exciting to be at the cusp of this new trend”, Bonaceto said.

Sophia the Robot and Blockchain

Sophia’s has been a feature at multiple blockchain events in the past. For example, the 2019 African Blockchain Conference and Malta AI and Blockchain Summit. It was here that she discussed the progress humans have made in AI technology.

Her creator, Hanson Robotics has already invested in blockchain technology. Its project SingularityNet is a decentralized, cloud-based, open-market for AI. 

Recently, SingularityNet has been working on the Sophia Collective. It aims to create a global community to help Sophia move towards beneficial general intelligence.
