Everyone knows the Sophia robot and the world has seen its talent too. Sofia can speak, jokes can kill, she can sing, while art can also be made. In March, Sophia rocked the art world when the digital art of this robot got 5 crores in the auction. It was in the form of a non fungible token (NFT). The sale exposed a growing frenzy in the NFT market, where people can buy ownership rights to digital content. Each NFTs has its own unique digital code that is saved on the blockchain ledger and allows anyone to verify the authenticity and ownership of the items.
David Hanson, the creator of Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics and Sofia, has been developing robots for the past two and a half decades. They believe that these real-looking robots can connect with people and help in industries such as healthcare and education. Sophia Hanson is the most famous robot creation of robotics. This robot has the ability to mimic facial expressions, interact and recognize people.
In 2017, this robot was granted citizenship of Saudi Arabia. That is, it is the first such robot in the world which has citizenship of any country. Hanson said in an interview that, Sophia itself is a creative artwork that can generate art. Sofia has many art, engineering and ideas with the help of which she can connect visually and emotionally with people.
5 crores received for 12 seconds of digital video
Sofia partnered with Italian artist Andrea Bonacito. In this partnership, the artist first created a portrait for Sofia, which was later created by Sophia as art. Sofia then started her work with the Neutral Network and then created her own digital artwork. For this 12-second digital video file, Sophia received a total of 5 crore rupees in the auction.
The sale of Sophia’s artwork as an NFT is a growing trend. In March, Artist Beeple created a digital artwork whose real name was Mike Winkelmann. He received 70 million dollars for that art. It broke all records where it was the most expensive digital artwork at that time.
Sophia’s next step, music
Hanson said that Sophia would continue the painting. But in the coming time, she can also become a musician. She is working with many musical works. The name of the project is Sophia Pop where Sophia has partnered with Man for music and lyrics.
