Sophia, the humanoid robot who spoke at the United Nations (UN) and has Saudi citizenship, is now set to hit another milestone by entering the metaverse. And, her virtual world will be called Noah’s Ark.
But Sophia’s a robot. In order to enter the metaverse, she needs a digital version of herself — enter Sophia beingAI, a virtual anime version of the robot. In a video interaction between the two, the original Sophia didn’t seem to be amped about having a virtual version of herself out there.
The company behind both personalities, beingAI, plans to launch 100 intelligent non-fungible tokens (iNFTs) called in collaboration with Alethea AI. An NFT is said to be ‘’intelligent’ if they have their own artificially intelligent (AI) personality. Within a game environment, these iNFTs can interact autonomously with people — kind of like in the movie Free Guy, featuring Ryan Reynolds.
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.
Statement by co-founder and CEO of beingAI, Jeanne Lim, on launching the IGO
Sophia’s collection of iNFTs is called ‘The Transmedia Universe of Sophia beingAI’. It will be featured on
’s NFT marketplace as a part of an initial game offering (IGO) set to go live on December 16.
The auction will take place over five days, with twenty iNFTs being released one day at a time, until December 21.
Sophia, the humanoid robot, has lived a more exciting life than most humans. In addition to being an internet celebrity, she’s met Prime Ministers, movie stars, business leaders, and spiritual leaders from all over the world while having traveled to more than 50 countries.
