Hitch integrates generative AI into Immutable Miniverse NFTs

Hitch Interactive, a startup focused on AI, robotics, fintech, and the metaverse, announced it has integrated generative AI into Web3 technology in the form of its Immutable Miniverse NFTs.

The company has added large language model (LLM) technology to its blockchain tech. This move, known as AI in Immutable Miniverse (AIIM), marks a big moment in NFT utility and functionality, the San Francisco company said.

Hitch Interactive introduced the Immutable Miniverse Format (IMF) on its Hitch1999 platform, allowing the embedding of immutable information into programmable non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The IMF standard lets users encode a spectrum of information, including data guiding LLMs to engage in intelligent conversations with humans. The limited edition Yummy Hamo collection, part of the curated gourmet miniverses, now incorporates this groundbreaking generative AI functionality.

The AIIM service facilitates viewer engagement within embedded NFTs. When accessing a Yummy Hamo NFT on the Hitch1999 site, viewers can inquire about embedded information, initiating conversations with LLMs. Importantly, the LLM deployed by Hitch Interactive is entirely private, preserving user confidentiality by not recording or sharing any user information. The conversational scope is confined by the embedded information within the NFT.

“AI technologies are rapidly evolving and we’re seeing extraordinary breakthroughs thanks to modern GPT models. However, most GPT products have been centralized, and their answers to users’ questions are based on an averaged inference of general knowledge that the models have been trained on, online,” said Allen Yang, Hitch Interactive cofounder, in a statement. “AI in Immutable Miniverse (AIIM) is the counter-balance to such centralized public AI services and offers a perfect union between modern LLM technologies and the future of private and decentralized Web3 applications.”

Hitch Interactive’s AIIM service offers distinctive traits compared to existing GPT services. That includes immutability, individualization, and decentralization. Embedded information is immutable and decentralized, fostering individualized interactions.

And Hitch said it can preserve privacy, as conversations within embedded information bypass referencing public GPT services, ensuring user privacy.

The roadmap ahead unveils the Hitch Mint product, extending beyond the initial Yummy Hamo NFT collection, which allows for universal embedding. Hitch Mint will allow users to embed personalized information into NFTs, expanding beyond the Yummy Hamo collection.

And Hitch said it can deliver decentralization and privacy. Users can deploy a compact LLM service on their local computers, ensuring decentralized and private AI conversations.

Crystal Tang, CEO of Hitch Interactive, highlighted the groundbreaking union of LLMs and blockchain within the Yummy Hamo NFTs, promising enriched future applications while preserving user privacy.

“LLMs and blockchain are two of the most exciting technologies on the market,” said Tang, in a statement. “As the first NFT collection that bears the capabilities of both, Yummy Hamo NFT owners will be able to use the Hitch1999 site to open up many future applications and preserve the rich knowledge of human users, while their privacy is absolutely preserved.”

The Hitch1999 platform offers a demo to explore LLMs embedded in the IMF standard. To delve into decentralized AI on Web3, visit Hitch1999. For a comprehensive view of Hitch Interactive’s offerings, explore Hitch Interactive’s portfolio.
