Vision

Andrea Bonaceto’s vision on NFTs, the collaboration with Sophia the Robot and digital artwork:

“Art is a very subjective concept, right? I know that there is the metaphysical element of life, of what is the meaning of life? The concept of death… is probably the main inspiration whenever I do something. And someone could argue, an AI does not have that,” he said.

“NFTs will revolutionize many industries, especially the creative industry/economy. We are at the cusp of a paradigm shift.”

About the collaboration with Sophia the Robot: “Her intelligence is a collective of algorithms and humans working together like a hive. For this show, Sophia created the art entirely using neural networks and symbolic AI, responding to her perception of my work, as well as to data from her ‘life’ experiences, under guidance from the Sophia team’s designers and programmers.”
