Cardano NFT: EntheosAI – The Cryptonomist

This week’s guest on the Cardano NFT Column is a project that uses AI (artificial intelligence) to generate beautiful artwork: EntheosAI.

Guest of last week was a project that aims to use blockchain technology and NFTs to decentralize the music industry.

This initiative is a benchmark for NFT on Cardano and every week or two we’ll invite someone over to answer a few questions and give us an update directly from the Cardano community.

Considering many of our readers are new to the crypto space, we will have a mix of simple and technical questions.

Cardano NFT Project: EntheosAI

Hey, glad to have you here. Please introduce your team, where are you from, what is your background?

Hey! Thank you for your time and interest in our project! I am Entheos (William Woodall) and the creator, founder and lead developer of EntheosAI. We have a small but very talented team that includes community management, services and outreach, and a blockchain developer. We have also recently introduced another amazing AI artist who goes through ADAliens to help develop the creative aspect of our work.

i live in california but our team is spread all over the world. For instance, we have people in Singapore, Malaysia, Vancouver and New Mexico.

Of course, we all bring a diversity of experience to the table, but personally, I have a training in mathematics, programming and artificial intelligence.

What is EntheosAI? How do you use NFTs and AI technology? And why Cardan?

EntheosAI is an NFT project that was started end of April 2021. We were the first fully algorithmic AI art project on Cardano. Compared to today, at that time the art of AI was still in its infancy, and using an algorithm that I created and coded from scratch, we produced incredibly unique and original works of art.

Over the past year, the world of AI art has exploded, and we have evolved with it, creating new algorithms that feature the latest developments in cutting-edge AI technology.

I chose to launch the project on Cardano because I believe in the vision. Coming from the AI ​​world, I used to analyze academic papers, and I understood the value of peer-reviewed academic research. For this reason, I was drawn to Cardano’s approach. Very quickly, I fell in love with the community and the other builders and creators of the space. I really feel like we’ve found a home and couldn’t be happier that we decided to build here at Cardano.

It is often said that artificial intelligence (AI) will not replace human creativity, yet the art of AI is emerging. What do you think of this subject?

Big question! I don’t believe AI will replace human creativity, at least not in its current state and not in the near future. On the contrary, I believe that it has become a tool to allow humans and artists to explore new methods of creative expression. If we look for example the emergence of transformer-guided image generationthe ability to use text or sentences to generate images, we can see how this created a whole new realm or system through which artists demonstrate talent and creativity. In the AI ​​art world, we call this system rapid engineering.

When I first started using these models, I naively thought that this process might be limiting, that maybe people would have similar ideas and therefore create similar images, but very quickly I learned that the space of possibilities is vast. People include in sentences things like famous artists or styles each giving the model a different quality with which to create variations in the resulting images. An artist using these algorithms will quickly develop their own unique style by learning to express their ideas through language and interaction with the model.

I know many artists and can often recognize their works just by seeing the style and content of their images. Our thoughts are composed and structured with language, so the idea and dynamics of using language as a tool of expression is fascinating. and brings with it a whole new world of possibilities.

What is the vision of your project? Where would you like to see EntheosAI in 1 year?

Well, even 1 year is a long time in this space, but one thing is for sure, We are here to stay. We will continue to evolve and follow the latest developments and possibilities in AI research and the use of blockchain technology.

As the world of AI art grows and more artists enter the space, I would like to steer the project in a direction that showcases our distinct abilities and talents. With extensive programming experience and a deep understanding of how these models work, we have the unique ability to manipulate technology and create our own algorithms to produce truly original works.

Marvellous. A final closing word? Where can people find out more?

Again, thank you for taking the time. Please visit our website. There is a lot of great insights into the project, team, and even the processes behind how some of these AI models work. Also, I would invite people to join our discord which you can find via my Twitter account. There is a dynamic and welcoming community there and we would be honored to have you.
