Alethea AI is a research and development studio building at the intersection of two technologies: Generative AI and Blockchain. It is a decentralized protocol for creating smart avatars that use AI to interact with people. 
"An iNFT is an intelligent NFT that is embedded with a GPT-3 prompt as part of its immutable smart contract. The iNFT generated is not only perceivably intelligent, but has both interactive and animation capabilities as carefully crafted prompts are stored at the smart contract layer. The hardcoded prompts call upon a state-of-the-art Transformer Language model to facilitate generative possibilities only possible through recent breakthroughs in few-shot and single-shot learning." - Arif Khan explained in a blog post 
On June 10, 2021, the Alethea AI protocol created the first intelligent NFT (iNFT) that sold on Sotheby’s for $478,800. 
In July 2021, Alethea AI partnered with the Fame Lady Squad NFT Community to bring their collection to life as interactive, intelligent assets for the first time in history. The partnership enables users to Fuse Personality Pods and Fame Ladies together to make an intelligent NFT, or an iNFT.
“NFTs need not start and end with jpegs; they don’t need to be stationary, or still, or quiet. Instead, they can be engaging, interactive, and have some level of intelligence,” - commented Arif Khan 
“It is an honor to join Binance’s incredible ecosystem, Binance has an incredibly deep bench of Tier-1 Projects in its ecosystem and as more Metaverses develop, we are confident that interactive, intelligent NFTs will play a critical role in elevating the consumer and gaming experience.
