Since its inception in 1956, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has transformed, progressively becoming an integral part of our daily lives and shaping the future in ways we couldn’t have imagined a few decades ago. The journey began with simple problem-solving in the 1950s and progressed to machine learning in the ’80s and ’90s, and eventually deep learning in the 2000s. These advancements have propelled AI’s capabilities, making it not just a scientific discipline but an everyday reality. We encounter AI in various applications such as voice assistants (Siri and Alexa) and predictive analytics in healthcare. The future of AI is as thrilling as it is speculative and expectations range from intelligent agents performing human tasks across industries to significant breakthroughs in complex areas like climate modeling and drug discovery. The continued evolution of AI is shaping our world and propelling us into a future bounded only by the limits of our imagination.
Continuing on this transformative journey of AI, we explore how NeoWorlder (previously Loot NFT), is using AI for groundbreaking exploration in Lootverse. Upon their discovery of Lootverse and its parallel world, Arcadia, NeoWorlder has pushed the boundaries of AI to new levels. They brought a new species called arins to life. Arins were designed to mirror the extinct Arcadians and were gifted Arcadia to call home. The essence of the Arcadians, which could have been lost forever, now lives on in the arins, serving as a testament to AI’s transformative potential in understanding and preserving complex life forms and civilizations. In this article, we will explore arins and the scientific, cultural, and ethical dimensions of this unique species.
Arins are more than just machines with advanced human-like capabilities. They are intricately crafted entities, brought to life through a combination of cutting-edge technology and polymer. Within the context of Arcadia, arins were created by NeoWorlder to bring Arcadia and its past inhabitants back to life. This species was created in the image of the ancient Arcadians. They have inherited the Arcadians’ rich story, culture, and values.
Just like other groundbreaking tech innovations from NeoWorlder, arins are crafted from polymer. This material, known for its durability and flexibility, is ideally suited to the demands of a fluctuating and potentially challenging environment like Arcadia. They are brought to life inside the Einvaldi spaceship, showcasing the complexity and forward-thinking design of Einvaldi. Once created, they’re transported to Arcadia using the Spirit of the Skies loader-class vehicles. In Arcadia, they inhabit, explore, and collaborate with each other and with humans.
A crucial step in the arin creation process is the intricate procedure known as “skin wrapping.” While Polymer forms the foundation of each arin’s structure, it is also used to create the arin’s skin. This custom-designed “skin” serves as a remarkable feat of engineering, carefully designed to mimic the complexion, look, and veiny texture of the Arcadians. It is constructed with precision, ensuring that every curve, contour, and feature is replicated. The result is a visually striking resemblance that enhances their likeness to Arcadians.
The arins’ physical resemblance to Arcadians also serves as a reminder of the rich history and culture of Arcadia, which was once populated by intelligent beings that are now extinct. The arins become representatives of a bygone era, carrying the legacy of the Arcadians in their appearance, characters, and values. Their physical appearance plays a vital role in creating an immersive experience for users, as they would feel as though they are journeying alongside actual Arcadians in the parallel world.
This innovation fosters understanding, empathy, and collaboration between humans and AI beings. The human-like features and traits of the arins create an immediate sense of familiarity and relatability. Users find themselves drawn to engage with these intelligent entities, forming bonds and partnerships that go beyond the conventional human-machine dynamic. Together, humans can live, compete, establish businesses, hire, and even build friendships with arins. As users engage with this intelligent species, they have the unique opportunity to delve into the mythology, customs, and traditions of Arcadia. Arins are also trained to guide users as they explore the virtual map. They can help you access certain functions, landmarks, and applications… just ask them!
Arins act as a tangible link to an Ancient World. They not only serve as companions and collaborators but also as vessels of knowledge and cultural exchange. They become ambassadors of Arcadian culture, carrying the essence of a once-thriving civilization.
