Alethea AI and beingAI Teams up with Binance NFT to Introduce NFT-Based AI Gaming Characters

The human-robot that rose to fame by addressing the United Nations (UN), earning Saudi citizenship and singing with Jimmy Fallon is now moving into the metaverse.

Alethea AI and beingAI are teaming up with Binance NFT to launch “The Transmedia Universe of Sophia beingAI” collection in an Intelligent Initial Game Offering (IGO). The collection includes 100 unique Sophia beingAI intelligent non-fungible tokens (iNFTs). These iNFTs, virtual versions of the humanoid robot Sophia, can interact with people autonomously in real-time on Noah’s Ark, the world’s first Intelligent Metaverse built by Alethea AI.

What exactly are iNFTs? 

A concept invented by the CEO of Alethea AI, Arif Khan, iNFTs aim to open up new economic, artistic and social opportunities by embedding NFTs with intelligence in the form of an AI personality. While a lot of the NFTs being traded are artistic work, including artwork, songs and memes, iNFTs offer AI services, such as cameo video messages, lip synchronization to songs and real-time engagement and battles in gaming scenarios. Over time, these AI services will be upgraded so that they can engage in creative endeavors, like copywriting or generative art. 

Who is Sophia beingAI?

Sophia beingAI embodies the heritage and origin story of Sophia the Robot, which was developed by the Hong Kong based company Hanson Robotics. “The Transmedia Universe of beingAI” celebrates the birth of Sophia beingAI as she travels around the world and through Alethea’s Intelligent Metaverse to interact with humans and evolve her intelligence.She treks through the land regions of the Earth where humans live, flies across the oceans of the Earth where humans sail, blasts off to the extraterrestrial bodies where spacecrafts have landed, and explores the Multiverse and Metaverse of the present and future. Her final destination is Universality, where all cultures, ethnicities, religions, nations, genders, generations, and species converge into a realm of total inclusiveness and togetherness. 

Conceived by beingAI, the collection was illustrated by well-known comic artist Pat Lee, who has worked with DC Comics and Marvel Comics on world-famous superhero comic series, such as Batman, Superman and Ironman.

“I’m thrilled to see beingAI create this virtual, anime version of Sophia, which has her expressiveness and unique personality – qualities that made Sophia so appealing to the world. beingAI extends the visionary exploration of Sophia as an AI who quests in the future to make the world better for people,” says David Hanson, Ph.D, Founder and CEO of Hanson Robotics.

“We are excited to bring Sophia beingAI to life as an iNFT,” remarks Jeanne Lim, Co-founder and CRO of beingAI. “As one of our AI beings, we hope Sophia beingAI will bring together humanity and technology to help humans attain our true nature of unconditional love and pure possibilities.”

“Through my collaboration with David Hanson, I was inspired by his vision for creating benevolent AI, and deeply appreciate his trust in empowering us to create Sophia beingAI as a parallel, virtual existence of Sophia,” says Lim.

When is the auction going to take place?

The 100 Sophia beingAI iNFTs will be auctioned on the Binance NFT Marketplace from December 16 at 5pm EST to December 21, 2021. Each day, 20 Sophia beingAI iNFTs will be released and sold on the marketplace.

“Alethea AI is honored to work with Binance NFT and the beingAI team to bring an anime version of Sophia to life virtually as an intelligent, interactive NFT. We are deeply excited by the philosophy and vision of beingAI, and believe our organizations share a mission of bringing cultures together through the power of AI,” states Arif Khan, CEO of Alethea AI.
