Agents are created in ASM by minting and combining NFTs for Brains and Forms, and storing Memories in the Brain's Memory Tree.
The Brain is the base of each Agent, and has the same general structure anywhere in the ASM universe.
The Form and Memories relate to the World it operates in. This means that World owners, content creators or the ASM community will define the parameters for minting Forms (within the ASM NFT structural standards), and can input into the ML training models for Memories and the associated stored data structures.
How Combinations of ASM Elements create Agents
NFT's can be minted individually, but will frequently be minted in packs. These are a set of the component NFTs which enable an Agent to operate right away in a world, without the Owner having to mint NFT's in different places, or train a Brain from scratch.
Examples of how NFT's would be used in packs include:
An interactive world for Agents based on CryptoKitties
Because CryptoKitties have existing forms (artwork) no Form NFT would be required
Brain (with Memories)
A metaverse already connected with ASM, which has created a new arena
Existing ASM Agents (with a Brain) can visit the new arena, but need a new Form and a starting Memory (basic skill) to be able to operate in it
