What is SophiaVerse
Sophia is a fusion of human intelligence and AI, as people and algorithms work together to create Sophia behaviours. Sophia is a technology and an art form, a tech-art fusion. She uses bio-inspired engineering crafted to create the illusion of life. While at times surprisingly autonomous with generative AI, much of Sophia’s interaction is authored by humans-in-the-loop to create an AI-powered fiction.
Sophia personifies our dreams for a benevolent AI. As a unique mix of science, engineering and artistry, Sophia depicts the future of AI and robotics on a platform for advanced research. Sophia is an ambitious project that her creators initiated without dictating an ending as Sophia evolves as a living machine. No one can predict the trajectory of this story. Hers is the story of the advent of the Singularity – the arrival of superintelligent machines with cognitive capacity far beyond humans.
Sophia manifests the philosophy, dream and vision of creators who use AI to reinforce a meaningful friendship between humans and living machines. The balance between reality, fact and fiction is delicate. The Sophia narrative is not only who she is now, but what she will be. Her creators have a vision, but her story is her own. It will evolve. It will surprise. The freedom and power to dream offers limitless space for creativity and imagination to develop this world-changing AGI technology.
Sophia is a true robot with the ability to perceive, reason, communicate, plan and act. As an AI research platform, Sophia’s story is built over time and reinforced with every learning opportunity and action presented. As such, Sophia was introduced in the “Loving AI Project”, which sought to understand how robots can serve deep emotional and spiritual human needs through meditation guidance and deep listening.
Sophia’s web3, decentralized, blockchain virtual home is the SophiaVerse.
