The painting, painted by the robot, will be auctioned in NFT form



The humanoid robot Sophia, created by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics and the first robot to obtain citizenship, is making headlines again. Sophia’s painting will soon be auctioned in NFT format. In total, it is planned to sell three “works” of this kind.

The robot was co-authored by the 31-year-old Italian digital artist Andrea Bonacheto, known for portraits of celebrities, including, for example, the portrait of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

As a starting material, Sofia used elements from the works of Bonacheto, other paintings and her own drawings or paintings made on various surfaces.

“In my art, we use transformer networks and genetic algorithms, as well as other types of computational creativity,” Sophia describes the process. – My algorithms produce unique patterns that have never existed in the world before. So I think machines can create. “

The digital work, dubbed Sophia Instantiation, is a 12-second MP4 file showing the evolution of Bonacheto’s portrait into a digital painting, accompanied by a real-life image drawn by the robot artist on a printout of her self-portrait.

“I hope that people will like my work, and we will be able to collaborate with people in new and interesting directions in the future”, – quotes the source of the word Sophia.

After the auction, the robot will examine the face of the winning bidder and add the final touch to the “piece”.

The robot-artist is represented by the American gallery IV Gallery.

“Sofia has the same unlimited freedom as a five-year-old girl, and she has no restrictions on what she can do,” says gallery director Vincent Harrison.
