- OpenAI, creator of language bot ChatGPT and image generator Dall-E, may face competition from Polygon’s blockchain AI product, CharacterGPT.
- While Dall-E creates images, CharacterGPT is designed to generate 3D avatars that can answer questions on the fly.
- Polygon has partnered with prominent brands such as Starbucks, Nike and Walt Disney.
OpenAI, creators of language tool ChatGPT and image generator Dall-E, may be facing a new three-dimensional competition on the blockchain.
Polygon, in collaboration with Alethea AI, launches CharacterGPT, an artificial intelligence-powered non-fungible token (NFT) project that describes itself as “the world’s first multimodal AI system.”
In an introductory video, the brand says users can enter text to generate responsive characters with “unique personalities, identities, traits, voices, and bodies.” You can create NFTs.
It remains to be seen if CharacterGPT will take on the popularity of ChatGPT and Dall-E, which uses OpenAI’s bot to attract 1.5 million daily users.
The CharacterGPT blockchain product looks poised to compete more directly with Dall-E than ChatGPT, which generates text responses to typed questions. He has garnered a great deal of interest through his ability to write compelling articles, cover letters, emails, and messages for dating apps.
Dall-E, on the other hand, has sparked controversy among artists who claim the platform draws from real creators, allowing it to fool people with how realistic its high-quality images look.
Meanwhile, Alethea AI says CharacterGPT will enable the creation of use cases such as “digital twins,” companions, virtual assistants, and parody figures, according to its website.
“Generative AI is advancing rapidly and could have a major impact on our lives in the years to come,” Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal said in a statement. “Over the last few years, we have seen first-hand how Alethea AI has been developing this technology, and with the CharacterGPT AI engine, users will be able to create interactive characters in seconds.”
