The future of AI artstarts here
AI Photos is a curated gallery for artists that create pieces powered by artificial intelligence being built on the Solana ecosystem.
About the project
AI Photos started as a project for testing deep learning algorithms powered by GPT-3 in the process of generating art pieces in pixel art, all inspired by IRL photos.
In the process, we got an awesome support from the community, either through financial support for OGs collections or discussions and ideas on the Discord server.
In the future, we aim for more OG and third party collections to be launched under the umbrella of AI Photos, a lot of incentives for holders of our collections as well as a ton of other ideas that are still in discussion. You can check North Star for more info.
AI Photos features, currently, two amazing pixel art collections powered by GPT-3:
Every collection features high quality images focused on either printing or web which the holders can download in the My Photos page.
In the future, the plan is for expanding the existing OG collections family with entirely new collections around a specific theme, as well as creating secondary generations for the already released collections.
Why North Star and not Roadmap? Because it does not make sense at the current state of the project to make predictions about the great things we want to build in a timely fashion and incur the risk of generating frustration. Remember, we have bigger goals, but we are also bootstrapping these goals because they cost two things: time and money.
AI Photos north star will be focused on four values: holders first; community; ecosystem; and entrepreneurship.
Holders FirstHolders First is the most important value and thus they will always be rewarded with exclusive auctions of art pieces, perks and access to tools early.
CommunityCommunity is what get cool people onboard of what we are building. So, our focus will always be better social media management, Discord events, maybe some day IRL events?...
EcosystemEcosystem means improving on the OG collections as well as creating new art content for the community. It also means sharing our discoveries with the world as open source software.
EntrepreneurshipThis is about long term goals. We want to pioneer web art gallery experiences by developing our own curated marketplace, while serving as a launchpad for individual artists who do not have the expertise/means to bootstrap/market their AI powered art. We also want to, in the future, provide the educational content on AI powered arts.
