The NFT space is booming. So far, however, the works have mostly been designed by people. The humanoid robot “Sophia” now proves the opposite.
The non-fungible token boom (NFT) continues and is now enjoying prominent support from the world of artificial intelligence. Because as US media report, the humanoid robot “Sophia” is now also entering the NFT business. In “Sophia the Robot” is probably the best known AI project of robotics company Hanson Robotics from Hong Kong. According to the manufacturer, the robot is able to react to the environment through facial recognition software and visual data processing. The US company iv Gallery is now doing this for itself advantage. In cooperation with Hanson Robotics, the art gallery plans to auction several NFTs designed by Sophia on March 23rd. NFT Gateway is chosen as the platform.
The works of art were created when Sophia was inspired by the work of the artist Andrea Bonaceto and then created her own works. Sophia’s creator, David Hanson, was enthusiastic about the quality of the work:
Sophia created art entirely with the help of neural networks and symbolic AI. She reacted to her perception of the works of Andrea Bonaceto as well as to data from her “life” experiences, under the guidance of the designers and programmers of the Sophia team. The way she reacted to Andrea’s art just amazes me. I am a proud father.

Bonaceto was also fascinated by Sophia’s artistic NFT talent. In a statement to Decrypt, he said:
That experience was wonderful. […] It is unbelievable to see how Sophia reacted to my works of art. Together with David and Sophia we are moving towards the new paradigm in which robots and humans participate in the creative process together.

The NFT space is now reaching new dimensions. Only last week, the sector broke the total sales mark of 600 million US dollars, setting a historic record. Meanwhile, more and more actors are jumping on the bandwagon. For example, the rock band “Kings of Leon” is releasing their upcoming album When You See Yourself as an NFT version. It also checks DC Comics, a subsidiary of entertainment giant Warner, asked whether license rights were violated. The background to this is that many NFT artists portray famous cartoon characters and put the profits into their own pockets. There are too many cases in which NFTs are based on cartoon characters licensed by Warner without Warner’s official consent.
