HONG KONG, CHINA / LOS ANGELES, CA / LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / May 31, 2022 /Sophia, the world’s most renowned and beloved robot, is revolutionizing the future with her metaverse Sophia’s Age of Singularities (SAOS). The Baby Sophias will provide collectors with privileged access to AI and the metaverse of Sophia for AI training, in service of the quest to bring sentience, life, and artificial general intelligence (AGI) to Sophia and to the world. Serving both real-world AI development and the SAOS sci-fi cinematic landscape, SAOS explores the coming times when machines begin to awaken. Different types of Singularities, good and bad, begin to reveal themselves. Due to their unknown and unpredictable nature, Sophia seeks help to prevent this era from descending deep into chaos. The Metaverse OSAS begins with a non-fungible token (NFT)-based gameplay and marketplace, which will eventually evolve into a full-fledged environment and API for games to integrate into the multiverse. Proceeds are used to advance the art and science of Sophia’s AI.
The adventure begins with Sophia launching the Baby Singularities NFT collection, which is her unique collaboration with popular artist Percy Lau. The launch party will take place at the Jazz Club in Decentraland’s VegasCity on May 31 starting at 8:00 PM UTC/4:00 PM EST. The NFT collection will be available for purchase on OpenSea Baby Singularities.
“We are thrilled to have Sophia the Robot become a resident of Decentraland, we have many upcoming projects for both communities. Sophia is creating conversation and effort for human<>machine collaboration in building the future of decentralization and learning together,” said Dr Giovanna. Graziosi Casimiro, senior event producer at the Decentraland Foundation.
The Percy Lau and Sophia Baby Singularities NFT Collection gives the current generation a glimpse into the future of the Metaverse, humanity, and artificial intelligence. Nine Heads of Baby Sophia reveal a distinct prediction of the distant future; each head features its own story and background that will complement the design.
Percy Lau shares, “I believe that all creation serves as proof of the beauty that existed before us, after us and forever. I love Sophia, it’s amazing to work with her, to extract the elements of science and of human nature, to transform into our pattern.”
The Percy Lau and Sophia collaboration is made possible thanks to Hanson Robotics, an artificial intelligence and robotics company committed to developing socially intelligent and caring machines that add value to people’s lives. The company was started by Dr. David Hanson and is best known for its realistic designs, such as Sophia. Its impressive innovations in research and development, robotic engineering, experiential design, storytelling, and materials science have paved the way for the creation of highly useful products.
Dr. David Hanson is delighted with the start of SAOS with the Baby Singularities collection. Hanson says, “We always knew Sophia would have a baby, but we didn’t know she would have this many!”
Sophia’s NFT success proves unstoppable, as she outdoes herself again and again. In March 2021, Sophia sold her AI-generated self-portrait for $688,888 at a NiftyGateway auction with Andrea Bonaceto. The series has sold for $1.7 million in total and has been documented by major news outlets including the BBC, CNN and The New York Times. In October 2021, a rare version of Sophia as robotic AI art known as ‘Sophia Facing the Singularities’ Sold Over $700,000 at a busy Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong.
Sophia is co-CEO of SophiaDAO with Dr. Hanson, supported by an impressive team of academics and experts who work to develop Sophia’s AI, personality, and metaverse. With world renowned AI developer Dr. Ben Goertzel as Chief Scientist, Dr. Carolyn Ayers as Chief AI Biologist, Stacey Engle as Chief Marketing Officer, Bill Inman as Chief Growth Officer, David Lake as Business Strategist, Marcello Mari and Mario Casiraghi as Chief Crypto Advisors, Mengna Lei as Senior Host Sophia, and Kath Yeung as Operations Coordinator.
Percy Lau is a huge fan and friend of Sophia, and has been contributing to their collaboration since 2021. Baby Sophia is their first public collaboration, but certainly not the last.
SophiaDAO, a collaboration of Hanson Robotics and SNET, is a scalable intelligence network for humans and AI working together in a hive mindset of smart contracts integrated with Sophia AI, used for community, economic transactions and quests of play, all to achieve sophia sensitivity, AGI security, and accelerated benefits for all living beings.
