A digital art piece made by Sophia, a humanoid robot, was sold at auction yesterday for nearly $ 700,000 in token currency.
The token, a digital signature saved on a digital ledger site, has become the latest investment trend, with a piece of art sold this month at a price of nearly $ 70 million.
The Robot Sophia, which was unveiled in 2016, produced her artistic creations in collaboration with Andrea Bonacito, a 31-year-old Italian digital artist, best known for his colorful paintings, some of which depict celebrities, such as Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla.
The robot combined elements of Bonasito’s work, art history, and her drawings or paintings on various surfaces several times, in a process that designer David Hansen describes as “iterative episodes of evolution.” The digital artwork, titled “Embodiment of Sophia,” is a 12-second “MP4 file,” showing the evolution of a Bonasetto to a digital drawing of the robot Sophia accompanied by artwork that Sophia drew on a printed copy of her self-portrait.
