Alethea AI, a research and development studio, has launched its dApp with Polygon called CharacterGPT, which allows the creation of AI-powered NFTs.
This new tool enables users to create NFT avatars by simply entering text prompts. CharacterGPT is an exciting new technology that goes beyond just generating images based on text, as it generates full interactive AI characters from a single-line prompt in natural language.
This opens up a wide range of possibilities for the use of AI in the Web3 space.
One of the most unique aspects of CharacterGPT is that anyone can use it to rapidly create, train, and trade AI characters as NFTs on Polygon.
This is a significant departure from traditional AI technologies, as it allows for a much more accessible and user-friendly experience.
The ability to mint NFTs using CharacterGPT is simple, as users can visit mycharacter.ai using the Polygon dApp.
For the launch of the dApp, Alethea AI created a virtual version of the Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal.
This virtual version was then turned into a 1/1 AI NFT collectible which was developed from his “writings, public statements and interviews.”
Additionally, there’s a gold check mark alongside the collectible of Nailwal to display his consent of the creation of the NFT.
This demonstrates the use of “AI Protocol: a property rights and ownership layer for Generative AI that is now live on Polygon.”
In a statement, Nailwal said that he had seen firsthand how Alethea AI has developed this technology over the last few years and through their CharacterGPT AI engine.
Therefore, his team is excited to “continue supporting Alethea as it builds on Polygon and to bring the power and potential of generative AI to the thriving ecosystem.”
The use cases for CharacterGPT are quite vast.
Ahmed Matyana, the COO of Alethea AI, shared some examples of use cases for the new technology. Matyana stated that “users can now create interactive, intelligent characters that could serve as their AI companions, digital guides, or as NPCs in games”.
Additionally, the company hopes that prominent figures will make use of CharacterGPT to create digital twins of themselves.
These digital twins could then serve as digital companions for their fans. As for the digital assets, they can be used in the metaverse, in games, museums, and sports stadiums, among many other things.
The integration of AI technology in the web3 space is becoming more prevalent, with potential for AI-generated avatars and art to be used in the future.
