Application: Artificial intelligence (AI) based skill tracking and non-fungible token (NFT) based skill representation (Patent ID: US20240100444A1)

The patent filed by Sony Group Corp. describes a system and method for AI-based skill tracking and NFT-based skill representation. The system acquires information related to a user's intangible asset in an online environment, applies an AI model to evaluate and track the progress of the asset, determines the proficiency level, and assigns a value to a digital token associated with the user. The digital token consists of a non-transferable part unique to the user and a fungible part exchangeable across platforms.

Furthermore, the system can track skill progress, evaluate skills based on trends in an NFT-based marketplace, update token value accordingly, identify new skills acquired by the user, control connections between platforms in the marketplace, generate smart contracts, and assist in skill acquisition through an AI agent. The method involves acquiring information, applying AI models, determining proficiency levels, and assigning values to digital tokens. It also includes determining similarity to expert levels, tracking skill progress, evaluating skills, updating token values, identifying new skills, and generating smart contracts based on a multi-token standard. The patent also covers a computer-readable medium storing instructions for executing these operations.
