The company uses Open AI Foundation’s GPT-3 technology to provide an environment for building iNFTs. Arif Khan, the CEO of the firm, stated in the [blog post](https://medium.com/@arikhan/announcing-our-successful-private-token-sale-f690343e6385) that the protocol provides tools to create iNFTs, build communities and intellectual property around loved characters, and allow access to powerful Synthetic Media.
In June, the first intelligent NFT Alice created by Robert Alice was presented on the private sales and auctions platform Sotheby's.
