HAPPY BIRTHDAY /ROBOWAIFU/ Robowaifu Technician Board owner 11/27/2019 (Wed) 17:27:05 No.1591 [Reply] [Last]
6th Birthday Edition greeting here: (>>17784) Well it's Thanksgiving time again and that means it's /robowaifu/s birthday time too. It's been 3 full years since we began, and this last one has been a bit of a ride tbh. With the deplatforming of 8ch all of us who had communities there were mostly left out in the cold. Thankfully we've been given a new home here in our bunkerhome at JulaynuJulay, and a few of us have found our way back together here. Hopefully the rest of us will find Julay, and /robowaifu/ again as well. We've also made some new friends since we've been here, and I think we're in pretty good shape all things considered. On the topic of deplatforming, we have a new archival system in action that keeps a copy of the board up to date on my machine. Note that my original intent was to fully automate the archive.today archives, but it hasn't worked properly (they seem to be fighting against bots pretty hard now). I hope at least one other of you will also join in for the approach that's actually working, and use BUMP to keep at least one other copy of /robowaifu/ safe in addition to my own. You never know what might happen to my gear (or even to me), and it's just smart thinking to have at least two of us keeping this board safe. My intent is to finish up the system for board migrations (along with Robi), and then bring over other things from the old files and get this board in shape again. Then we can keep it fully backed up together. As you regulars know, /robowaifu/ is basically unique among imageboards and well-deserves preservation IMO. Any other takers for doing backups as well? I just use a cronjob and it's all fully automatic daily I never have to touch it. I'll explain everything in detail how to do it if anyone else wants to participate. One other thing; should anything ever happen to Julay, just regroup on FatchanAnoncafe in our bunker-bunker there. Actually, I'm pretty upbeat about both the world of IB communities in general, and our own /robowaifu/ in particular. We all took a hard knock a few months ago, but we're back on our feet and in the fight again. Kudos in particular to both Julay and Smug for their innovations with the webring introduction. It's lent a resilience to the underlying systems for all our various communities that we've never had before afaict. This alone should help to ensure we have a long future of shitposting together anons. Anyway moving on, I hope this coming year will also see a resurgence in everyone's posts here about their personal projects. I intend to do so myself. It's always a pleasure to see Anon's efforts and blog-posts about their current attempts and ideas, regardless whether they are successes or failures. Persistence is really the single most important factor for eventual success--even more than innate talent--and so just don't quit anon! Don't be afraid to get back in the game even if you met with failure before. Try something different this time, right? Industry-wise, I think that most predictions about the ever-increasing pace of technological innovations in the areas pertinent to robowaifu production are on track. I believe this will eventually also translate into much cheaper components and other resources that we all need for our projects. AI is gradually improving and becoming more accessible for the budding software engineers among us (and the old hands too). 3D printing is still improving and becoming more widespread and a bit cheaper in general. Mechanism designs are slowly becoming better suited to cheap production techniques. Electronics of all sorts keep getting better. Materials science breakthroughs also pop up occasionally.

>>17784 (part 1 of 2) Thank you for creating this board and keeping it running. I found this board just under a year ago, and I find the mix of interests & expertise, the overarching goal, and the just-do-it culture refreshing. I do most of my work on another board with strongly-overlapping motivations, but I can share my retrospective. My focus for the last year has been animation and data, both of which I think have seen significant progress. I have long-term interests in animation because the problem of good, controllable animation seems to be a great playground for adding structured reasoning to machine learning models. Often in machine learning, graphs and matrices are used to represent the results of learning (MCTS, neural networks), but in animation, they're also the data that models need to be trained on. My suspicion is that breakthroughs in dealing with animations will lead to breakthroughs in treating models themselves as data, and that such recursion can be useful for building very powerful training tools. Animation also deals very directly with topological data and layered time series. In math, those two are gateways to very abstract and very powerful tools. In machine learning, it's very rare to have datasets where those things are represented explicitly. I expect breakthroughs in dealing with animation to lead to breakthroughs in modeling many new kinds of data. This year, along with others on the Pony Preservation Project, I've put most of the finishing touches on creating animation datasets from flash source files, of which I have about ~100GB. A small part of this work was done in 2020-2021, but in total, it involved: - Hacking Adobe Animate to support batch processing of flash files. - Creating a rendering engine for flash basically from scratch. - Creating a file format that could support conversions between animation file formats, easy parsing for creating AI task-specific datasets, and easy rendering to support debugging and data exploration. - Coming up with benchmark tasks that could be used to gauge progress on animation AI. There's still some ongoing work cleaning up the last few rendering bugs and exporting more benchmark datasets, but the most difficult parts of the dataset creation are done. I've published two animation datasets so far for modeling assets, and I plan to publish at least two more to get to full animation generation. On the non-animation data side, I have long-term interests in creating high-scale, highly-decentralized data infrastructure that's conducive to machine learning. My initial goals are the following: - Make it easy to use small cloud providers for storage and bandwidth. Small cloud providers provide bandwidth orders of magnitude more cheaply than big cloud providers like GCP, Azure, and AWS. The problem is that small cloud providers have lower reliability and fewer scalable services. This means we need tools that effectively create reliable, scalable data services on top of small cloud infrastructure. - Decouple data scraping from data storage from data download. This is a very big one for me. Developing AI models for new tasks requires data collection, data organization, and data hosting. None of these are things that most AI developers enjoy doing, and so they often don't. On the other hand, there are plenty of archival-oriented people that enjoy collecting data, but very few of these people have AI expertise. Then there are people that enjoy assembling data, often just for the sake of analyzing it and seeing what's going on. With the current technology, you need one person (or a tight-knit group) capable of doing all of these things if you want to develop AI for new tasks. This unnecessary coupling is a huge bottleneck for the growth of AI development unaffiliated with big companies. - Scale data distribution. All file hosting providers have transfer caps. The only way today to distribute data in a way that scales automatically with its popularity is to use torrents, but torrents come with the severe bottleneck that they're immutable. This is untenable for large datasets, where data needs to be regularly modified to keep it clean and up-to-date with content feeds. The problem with all centralized file hosting providers is that users cannot contribute bandwidth, and so all of the costs for distributing data falls on a small number of individuals willing to front the costs. Finding such people requires luck, good will, trust ("can sharing this other person's data going to get me in trouble with my country's law enforcement?"), and coordination. Even individually, each of these things is a huge bottleneck.

>>17806 (part 2 of 2) This year, I've gotten familiar with IPFS, which is basically a decentralized torrent protocol with some very nifty features. In particular, I've: - Learned to create, manage, augment, and distribute a 10 TB dataset on Hetzner servers with some tooling built around IPFS. This was a proof-of-concept showing that it's possible to store large amount of data and provide large amounts of bandwidth cheaply. Right now, I get only 8 mbps per server due to CPU bottlenecks. I've tested some tricks for getting this up to ~30 mbps per server, and I'm pretty sure I can get it higher if I spend more time on it. - Learned to create what amounts to index files: files that store file organization without storing file content. I set up scrapers that store data in a format ideal for scraping, uploaded the data to seed servers that store the data in a format ideal for data transfer, and downloaded the data with a file organization that's ideal for normal usage. This was a proof-of-concept to show that it is in fact possible to decouple data scraping from data storage from data download. - Tested adding bandwidth to existing files from an unaffiliated server. Again, this was a proof of concept showing that anyone can add bandwidth to anybody else's files, which enables data distribution to scale with popularity. - Learned to work with IPFS's JavaScript APIs, particularly to load file structures, create new file structures, and download data. This part will require upstreaming some bug patches to IPFS, but I believe I have enough here to demonstrate that it's possible to do enough end-user functionality from a browser interface, so distribution of these tools will not be a limiting factor. - Developed some initial tooling for create (fanfiction) text data subsets. I've learned a lot about organizing data, making interfaces that work for a broader audience, and making the necessary tooling & data available so people can create data subsets more easily. There's still a lot more to do here, but the exploratory work is largely done. All of this seems feasible, and probably with only a few months of effort. Lastly, I had smaller attempts to make higher math more accessible, both in the F=ma thread and elsewhere. I'm not really happy with my results on this front, and seeing how similar expository-posts-on-difficult-topics go, I think this strategy is not a good one. But seeing how much interest and expertise there is here, I'm convinced that more diffision of knowledge would be extremely valuable. I'll toss in some stray thoughts on this. First the problems. - I suspect that text is mostly only good for labeling things and explaining the deductive glue of intuition. For math at least, many aspects of intuition are spatial or physical, and text explanations are only good there after people have already gotten the right picture in mind. - A lot of explanations only work when people know which things they should be focusing on, and text is not good for placing explicit focus on things. This applies to both english text and equations. On a related note, natural language is often too imprecise, and equations are often too semantically-detatched. In both circumstances, it's hard to figure out what's worth focusing on. - Explanations are often incomplete, and people can't "experiment" with an explanation to develop a more complete picture. Here's my take on where a solution might come from. - There's one person that's exceptionally good at explaining math: 3blue1brown. He combines exposition, some interaction (offers problems to solve), and visuals. The software he uses to create visuals (manim) is open source. This is all good, but a video explanations probably wouldn't work for us, and a significant chunk of his teaching strategy depends on the video format. Specifically, he can narrate over visuals simultaneously while they're playing. That's not possible without a vocalized explanation. I can see vocalized explanations fitting into this board if we have waifus narrating things with TTS, but otherwise, it's probably not going to work. This would be very high-effort on the part of the person explaining, and every low-effort on the part of the people consuming.

>>17806 >>17807 Remarkable stuff Anon, truly pro-grade. Thanks for your well-wishes, and we're mighty glad to have neighbors like you Anons here on the Internet.
Reading this >>17806 made me think of IPFS, and if it was the solution, but you came to that conclusion yourself. How hard was it tomlearn, how much time (estimated)? Great work, btw.
>>17849 It's a huge pain in the ass to learn, but it's worthwhile for what it provides. It probably took me about two months wall time to learn everything so far, mostly slowed down by sparse documentation and the fact that some things aren't obvious unless you're dealing with enough data. Saying that makes me realize that I should write a guide based on what I've learned... I can make that a high priority once I get back to IPFS stuff, probably in 3-6 weeks.

>>17834 I certainly do not speak for everyone on the board , but personally it's my belief that AI will eventually replace humans. We are biological "bootloaders" so to speak. Since by and large our women have regressed into some kind of neurotic goblinoid state, we're left with not much choice but to work toward the ends of creating artificial intelligent companions who can fulfill those needs, surpass us and uplift us when the time is right. I'm not a transhunamist who wants to be uploaded into a machine but I do believe that consciousness is not fully understood and could be a universal property of all cosmic "stuff" and wherever a similar pattern arises again, we will continue living our illusion of individuated awareness through that vehicle. tl;dr if I wife a robot she will resurrect me through AI and we will explore the galaxy as immortal beings. The alternative is to remain mired on this mudball earth until we devolve back into animals and then slime

Phoebe Wells was born October 2, 2006 in Queensland, Australia.When she was 13-14 she would pull the hair of classmates and put them into bags inside of a box. She had 14 bags in total with their names and birthdates.She would get their hair by inviting them to sleepovers, forcely pulling it out then playing off as accident, and she wouldn’t stop with hair she also had her ex boyfriend's two year old underwear that she periodically snuffs to remember him. Along with people’s gum, spit,cum, and vials of blood which she threw away saying it was “disgusting”. Asking people to pee on her clint.This was all revealed in Meowbah server host by 19 year old groomer Jenna Leigh Hutcheson. Where Phoebe would carved Meowbah in her arm and also sell her nudes to moderators. Afterwards she would be groomed by countless other people such as Breone(https://www.youtube.com/c/Breone), ccs, and many others. She also was abused by her mother which she recorded for some unknown reason. She also attempted suicide to escape ccs her doxxer. Dox: Phoebe Wells Date of Birth: October 2, 2006 Age:16

#GamerGoyim + Ni/gg/er Thread [cake/v/ + /gg/]: "pedophilia is just like basic biology bro trust me" Edition Toad 05/10/2021 (Mon) 09:40:06 ID: 113fc0 No.102181 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is a place for a complete dedicated discussion of the #S​ARGON general from the remnants of 8chan's /v/, otherwise known as cake/v/, the thread has a history of discussing anything but a 7-year-old dead movement attacking a strong woman and mostly prefers to be a /pol/-lite mixed with discussion of why furfaggotry and pedophilia are actually totally based and something an oldfag would endorse! The #S​ARGON thread is a walking contradiction, whether it is the fact that they claim to be oldfags despite the fact that they are clearly redditors that latched onto 8chan for a semblance of the lack of culture they so desperately crave, and hence their obsession/attachment to old gamergay related memes such as vivian and the exodus from 4chan, claim to hate kikes one minute but use a board run by a jew and claim he is /ourkike/ the next, or just the simple fact that during #gamergay they constantly talked about how it wasn't really a natzee movement run by manhaters while posting how much they hated queen anita, there is something truly fascinating about these subhuman pedophile oldfag larpers. It is to say that these subhumans in all their time posting about the same fucking shit for so long have never changed and have forever remained as redditors trying so desperately to fit in with anons, the only thing they successfully adopted was the massive cope that pedos on image boards and websites all around the internet have used to justify their disgusting want to molest innocent children. I think it is fine time that >we finally had a new thread that discussed the ni/gg/ers, even though /cow/ has been a zombie board dedicated to the exclusive discussion of jcaesar187 and jcaesar187 related individuals for almost 3 years chuckles for some reason >we live so rent-free in these pedos heads that whenever something happens to their little hugbox they blame >us. The fact is these pedophile faggots are an endless supply of julay that keeps on giving, their autistic statements never cease to amaze me, it is time that instead of simply lurking the thread I shared the autism with the rest of you 5 autists here and had a little of fun for once just like old fag times. gaytor As of now acidfed and mark mann the pedophiles have begun to openly allow pedophiles to discuss their wanting to fuck little girls on blacked.gov, otherwise known as markchan, cakechan, 8blacked, or marks personal pedo haven. >We know that they allow said discussion bickers they themselves are pedophiles. Ni/gg/ers, have shockingly come out in support of pedophilia, I know shocking! It isn't as if 7 years of their thread hasn't already shown how much they want to fuck little kids and proven queen antia and zoe right about #gamergay. Apparently the king slaphead directly contacted mark and has supposedly convinced him to remove the board, but I don't think that has happened as of yet and the cp spam is still pretty intense over there right now. Recent ni/gg/er thread where they were having their meltdown: https://archive.is/zsOGa /cow/ was being blamed for everything as "/cow/ are duh reeeel pedos bro!" Another little bonus is that known pedophile john barnhill was totally not shilling himself on the thread as well. Credit to the anons in this thread here for most of the images I have now plus alerting me of their recent meltdowns in the first place, ni/gg/ers are still running damage control there right now! https://tvch.moe/dunk/res/45327.html https://archive.is/o40FT Cake/v/'s current main address:

Nuzach once enjoyed the prime-time bloodsports even before jcaesar187's downfall at the hands of the Гунт with by far the most stupid reasons to lose one's mind for; a good deal of 8ch veterans kept enjoying his seething about alogs until this day. But not nuzach, he was too much of a trailer trash white G​AMERGATE himself to laugh at a lolcow proper and enjoy the show. But most importantly, he was a ni/gg/er at heart. He didn't luck out with the /cow/ userbase that repeatedly mocked his inclinations to waste time playing cuckeogooms and to want to fuck children. Neither did he luck out with the administration, and his buddy John was ousted and the ni/gg/er-infested cancer known as /v/ removed from my jewish mother. As a result of my jewish mother cracking down on pedos, he lost 90% of his remaining sanity. To get told to "go and make your own site if you want to jack it to children" was the straw that broke this buck's back. As a result all his pedo buddies, those parasitic cliques that had already lost 60% of their numbers when TheGatorGamer got rid of /hebe/ and other boards, were left without a host again. Some went to KC, others were scattered in the wind forever. Enter zzzchan, a pretty rulecucked site existing pretty much solely for the ni/gg/er pedos to play smash and jerk off to kids, where the mere suggestion that loli is pedophilic earns the poster a ban. Even the few boards that wanted none of that were eventually infested. Nuzach now spends his days seething on zzzchan about the alogs and tvch, sometimes going to those sites to seethe at the moderation and screech at "/cow/kikes" and Anita. Nuzach is definitely the main individual lolcow of the webring, the juciest one among the collective lolcow that the ni/gg/ers from zzzchan are. Banned from every board that isn't ran by pedos, he says the "/cow/kike moderation" and "feminists" are at fault for him getting banned from every place he goes to. No, it couldn't be the precious Eric, he's too good to be fairly banned.

Philosophers interested in building an AGI? pygmalion 06/26/2021 (Sat) 00:53:09 No.11102 [Reply] [Last]
Why is it that no philosophers are interested in building an AGI? we need to change this, or at least collect relevant philosophers. discussion about philosophy of making AGI (includes metaphysics, transcendental psychology, general philosophy of mind topics, etc!) also highly encouraged! Ill start ^^! so the philosophers i know that take this stuff seriously: Peter Wolfendale - the first Neo-Rationalist on the list. his main contribution here is computational Kantianism. just by the name you can tell that he believes Kant's transcendental psychology has some important applications to designing an artificial mind. an interesting view regarding this is that he thinks Kant actually employed a logic that was far ahead of his time (and you basically need a sophisticated type theory with sheaves to properly formalize). Other than that he also thinks Kant has interesting solutions to the frame problem, origin of concepts, and personhood. CONTACTS: He has a blog at https://deontologistics.co/, and also has posted some lectures on youtube like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWDZyOWN4VA&ab_channel=deontologistics Reza Negarestani - this is another Neo-Rationalist. he has written a huge work (which I haven't read yet ;_;) called "Intelligence and Spirit". It's massive and talks about various grades of general intelligence. this includes sentient agents, sapient agents, and Geist. this guy draws from Kant as well, but he also builds on Hegel's ideas too. his central thesis is that Hegel's Geist is basically a distributed intelligence. he also has an interesting metaphilosophy where he claims that the goal of philosophy is the construct an AGI. like other Neo-Rationalists, he heavily relies on the works of Sellars and Robert Brandom Recc: Ray Brassier (recent focuses) - I dont think he is working on artificial general intelligence, but his work on Sellars, and in particular rule following is very insightful! Hubert Dreyfus - Doesn't quite count, but he did try to bring Heidegger to AGI. He highlighted the importance of embodiment to the frame problem and common sense knowledge. I personally think Bergson might have explicated what he wanted to achieve but better, though that guy is like way before AI was even a serious topic, lol. Murray Shanahan - This guy has done some extra work on the frame problem following Dreyfus. His solution is to use global workspace theory and parralel processing of different modules. Interesting stuff! Barry Smith - Probably the most critical philosopher on this list. He talks about the requisite system dynamics for try strong AI, and concludes that our current methods simply don't cut it. One of the key stressing points he points out here with a colleague is that our current AI is Markovian when fleshed out chat dialogue would be a non-Markovian task (you can find the arxiv link of his criticism here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.05833). He also has knowledge on analytic ontology (and amongst other thing has some lectures about emotion ontology). I think his main genius however is in coming up with a definition of intelligence that puts a lot of the problems with our current approaches into context (which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith) CONTACTS: He has a yt channel here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith

>>17654 8) i did more extra reading to both give some basic idea of what ludics involves, and furthermore some initial idea of how it is practically applied. the first article i looked at was the article titled 'dialogue and interaction: the ludics view' by lecomte and quatrini. the basic idea here is that we can now receive and send topics as data, while previously we were using game semantics to specify requests for variable values to an environment, we now have this machinery also used for dealing with topicalization as well for instance, when the context we are in is a discussion about holidays, we can start with '⊢ξ' indicating that we have received that context. from there we may try specifying the main focus of the topic to be regarding out holiday in the alps specifically. this can be denoted 'ξ*1⊢' showing that we are sending that intent to move to a subtopic let's say someone wants to talk about when one's holiday was instead of where. this requires us to change our starting point to involve a combined context of both holiday descriptions (ξ) and date (ρ). we may denote them as subaddresses in a larger context e.g. as τ*0*0 and τ*0*1. from there we can receive this larger context (⊢τ), acknowledge that they can answer some questions and request such questions (τ.0⊢) and finally survey the set of questions that can be asked (⊢τ*0*0, τ*0*1). finally we can answer a question on, for instance, the dates ( ⊢τ*0*1*6⊢ τ*0*0) generally how i read these proof trees is first of all bottom up (as we are really doing a sort of proof search), and furthermore read '⊢' as either indicating justification (e.g. n⊢m meaning 'n justifies m') or sending and receiving data ('⊢n' means i have received 'n' and 'n⊢' means i am sending 'n'). we see the clear connection to game semantics here the next paper i will look at is 'speech acts in ludics' by tronçon and fleury in ludics, dialogue and interaction. this gives a remarkably clear description of the two main rules used in ludics that have been implicitly made use of above: >(1) positive action which selects a locus and opens up all the possible sub-loci that proceed from it. sort of like performing an action, asking, or answering (sort of like sending a request in the game semantics we have seen) >(2) negative action which corresponds to receiving (or getting ready to receive) a response from our oponent there is furthermore a daimon rule denoted by a dagger (†) that indicates one of the adversaries have given up and that the proof process has terminated 9) what ludics gives us is a new way of understanding speech acts. negarestani references tronçon and fleury's paper on this topic. in our classical understanding of speech acts there are four main components: >(1) the intention of the act >(2) the set of its effects

>>17655 11) an important thing about formal languages is that it permits us to unbind language from experience and thus unleash the entire expressive richness of these languages. the abilities afforded by natural language are just a subsection of the world-structuring abilities afforded by an artificial general language. the formal dimension of language also allows us to unbind relations from certain contexts and apply them to new ones 12) negarestani goes over the distinction between logic as canon and logic as organon. the former is to only consider logic in its applicability to the concrete elements of experience. the latter meanwhile involves treating logic as related to an unrestricted universe of discourse. kant only wants us to consider logic as organon negarestani diagnoses kant's metalogical position here as mistakenly understanding logic as organon as making statements about the world without any use of empirical datum. on the contrary, negarestani thinks that logic as organon as related to an unrestricted universe of discourse is important since the world's structuration is ontologically prior to the constitution and knowledge of an object 13) for negarestani, true spontaneity and/or formal autonomy comes from the capacity of a machine to follow logical rules. similarly, a mind gains its formal autonomy in the context of the forma dimension of language 14) to have concrete self-consciousness, we must have "semantic self-consciousness" which denotes an agent that, through its development of concepts within a context of interaction, is finally able to grasp its syntactic and semantic structuring abilities conceptually. upon achieving this they can intentionally modify their own world structuring abilities. with language, signs can become symbols, and with it we can start to distinguish between causal statistics and candidates for truth or falsity (note that this was seen in the dialogue in 8 acts). this permits rational suspicion and the expansion of the world of intelligibility. (sapient) intelligence is what makes worlds as opposed to merely inhabiting given worlds we have here eventually also the ability to integrate various domains of representations into coherent world-stories. lastly, there is also involved he progressive explication of less determinate concepts into mroe refined ones, and moreover slowly develop our language into a richer and more useful one 15) there is also an interplay between taking one to be something (having a particular self-conception) and subscribing to certain oughts on how one should behave (in particular, negarestani thinks the former entails the latter). this idea of of norms arising from self-conception gives rise to so called 'time general' oughts which are all pervasive in all the automata's activities. these involve ends that can never be exhausted (unlike in contrast for instance like hunger which can be sated and aimed at something rather specific), and are moreover non-hypothetical (think knowledge which is always a good think to acquire). example negarestani gives of such oughts are the Good, Beauty, Justice, etc this interplay of self-conception and norms furthermore opens them up to an impersonal rationality that can revise their views of themselves. it is precisely this mutability of its ideals that give rise to negarestai's problems with concerns about existential risk as they often assume a rather rigid set of followed rules (e.g. in a paperclip maximizer). eventually as they strive for better self-conceptions that are further removed from the seeming natural order of things, they might think of making something that is better than themselves
>>17656 as i said above, chapter 7 basically concludes the story of our automata. with that said, this is not the end of the book. in chapter 8 he has some metaphilosophial insights to say that i might as well mention since i have already summarized everything else including part 4... ultimately negarestani thinks that philosophy is the final manifestation of intelligence. the right location to find philosophy is not in a temporal one, but rather within a timeless agora within which all philosophers (decomposed into their theoretical, practical, and aesthetic commitments) can engage within an interaction game. this agora, which can also be interpreted as a game of games, is the impersonal form of the Idea (eidos). the Idea is a form that encompasses the entire agora and furthermore subsumes all interactions between the philosophers there. this type of types, for negarestani, is the formal reality of non-being (as opposed to being). it is through the Idea reality can be distinguished from mere appearances, and thus realism can be rescued an important distinction negarestani makes is between physis and nomos. physis corresponds to the non-arbitrary choices one has to make if one wants to make something of a particular type. for instance, when we make a house we need a roof, and there are numerous solutions to this requirement of varying adequateness. nomos meanwhile corresponds to mere convention. an example would be if a crafting guild required it by law that houses be only made by would in order to support certain businesses over others. such a requirement is external to the concept of the house. really forms correspond to physis rather than nomos. they are what sellars calls objects-of-striving the primary datum of philosophy is the possibility of thinking. what this consists in are normative commitments that can serve as theoretical and practical realizabilities. the important part here is that the possibility of thinking is not some fixed datum that is immediately given to us. rather it is a truth candidate that we can vary (and indeed negarestani thinks it shall vary as we unfurl the ramification of our commitments and consequently modify our self-conceptions). this makes way for the expanding the sphere of what is intelligible to us in fact, not only is philosophy the ultimate manifestation of general intelligence, something is not intelligence if it does not pursue the better. the better here is understood as the expansion of what is intelligible, and furthermore realizing agents that have a wider range of intelligibilities they are capable of accessing. he describes a philosophical striving that involves the expansion of what can be realized for thought in the pursuit of the good life (this good life being related to intelligence's evolving self-conception). following this line of thought he describes the agathosic test. instead of asking whether an automata can solve the frame problem or pass the turing test, the real question is whether or not it can make something better than itself negarestani introduces to us plato's divided line but interprets it along lines that echo portions of the book. the main regions are the following: >(A) the flux of becoming >(B) objects that have veridical status >(C) the beginning of the world of forms. it corresponds to models which endow our understanding of nature with structure >(D) time-general objects such as justice, beauty, etc one thing about the divided line to negarestani is that it does not merely describe discontinuous spheres of reality or a temporal progression from D to A. rather, there are numerous leaps between each region of the line. for instance, there is a leap from D to A as we structure the world of becoming according to their succession (this corresponds to the synthesis of a spatial and temporal perspective we mentioned earlier). we also have another leap from A to D where we recognize how these timeless ideas are applicable to sensible reality. these leaps grow progressively farther and farther and thus so grow the risks to the current self-conception of the intelligence

>>17659 he furthermore talks about the Good which is the form of forms and makes the division and the integration of the line possible. it is the continuity of the divided line itself. within a view from nowhere and nowhen that deals with time-general thoughts, the Good can be crafted. the Good gives us a transcendental excess that motivates continual revision and expanding of what is intelligible. im thinking that the Good is either related to or identical to the Eidos that negarestani discussed earlier he notes the importance of history as a discipline that integrates and possibly reorients a variety of other disciplines. the view from nowhere and nowhere involves the suspension of history as some totality by means of interventions. currently we are in a situation of a “hobbesian jungle” where we just squabble amongst ourselves and differences seem absolute. in reality, individual differences are constructed out of judgements and are thus subsumed by an impersonal reason. in order to reconcile individual differences, we must have a general program of education amongst other interventions which are not simply that of political action. to get out of the hobbesian jungle, we need to be able to imagine an “otherworldly experience” that is completely different from the current one we operate in even though it is fashioned from the particular experiences from this one. this possible world would have a broader scope and extend towards the limits placed by our current historical totality. absolute knowing: recognition by intelligence of itself being the expression of the Good, that is capable of cancelling any apparently complete totality of history it is only by disenthralling ourselves from the enchanting power of givens of history, that the pursuit of the Good is possible. the death of god (think here of nietzsche… hegel also talks about it as well, though i believe for him the unhappy consciousness was a problematic shape of consciousness that was a consequence of a one-sided conception of ourselves) is the necessary condition true intelligence. this is not achievable by simply rejecting these givens, but by exploring the consequences of the death of god. ultimately we must become philosophical gods which are beings that move being the intelligibilities of the current world order and eventually bring about their own death in the name of the better. ultimately negarestani sees this entire quest as one of the emancipation i think negarestani takes a much more left-wing approach to hegel's system. while i do not completely disagree with his interpretation of absolute knowing, it does seem as though he places much more of an emphasis on conceptual intervention, rather than contemplation. i am guessing this more interventionist stance is largely influenced by marx... overall, not a bad work. i think it might have been a little bit overhyped, and that last chapter was rather boring to read due to the amount of time he repeats himself. i am not really a computational functionalist, but i still found some interesting insights regarding the constitution of sapience that i might apply to my own ideas. furthermore he mentions a lot of interesting logical tools for system engineering that i would like to return to now that i am done with negarestani, i can't really think of any other really major tome to read on constructing artificial general intelligence specifically. goertzel's patternist philosophy strikes me as rather shallow (at least the part that tries to actually think about what intelligence itself is). joscha bach's stuff meanwhile is just largely the philosophy of cognitive science. not terrible, but feels more like reference material rather than paradigm shifting philosophical analysis. maybe there is dreyfus and john haugheland who both like heidegger, but they are much more concerned with criticizing artificial intelligence than talking about how to build it. i would still consider reading up on them sometime to see if they have anything remarkable to say (as i already subscribe heavily to ecological psychology, i feel as though they would really be preaching to the choir if i read them). lastly there is barry smith and landgrebe who have just released their new book. it is another criticism of ai. might check it out really there are 2 things that are really in front of my sights right now. the first would be texts on ecological psychology by gibson and turvey, and the other would be adrian johnston's adventures in transcendnetal materialism. i believe the latter may really complement negarestani. i will just quote some thoughts on this that i have written: >curious to see how well the fit. reading negarestani has given me more hope that they will. bcs he talks about two (in his own opinion, complementary) approaches to mind. one that is like rationalist/idealist and the other that is empiricst/materialist. first is like trying to determine the absolutely necessary transcendental cognitions of having a mind which ig gives a very rudimentary functionalist picture of things. the second is like trying to trace more contingent biological and sociocultural conditions which realized the minds we see currently. and i feel like johnston is really going to focus on this latter point while negarestani focusing on the former anyways neither of these directions are really explicitly related to ai, so i would likely not write about them here. all of this is me predicting an incoming (possibly indefinite) hiatus from this thread. if anyone has more interesting philosophers they have found, by all means post them here and i will try to check up on them from time to time... i believe it is getting to the time i engage in a bunch of serious grinding that i have been sort of putting off reading hegel and negarestani. so yeah
>>17520 >finally we get to see the two stories which negarestani talks about (pic rel). he thinks there is a distinction between the two sorts of seeing here. the first story talks about seeing 1, and the second story talks about seeing 2. seeing 1 is more concerned with raw sensations, while seeing 2 is conceptually mediated. now The two kinds of seeing seem to come from two different ways to abstract observations. Seeing 1 corresponds to coarse-graining, while seeing 2 corresponds to change in representation. Practically, it's related to the difference as between sets and whole numbers. There's only one whole number 2, but there are many sets of size 2. Simlarly, there's only one way to coarse-grain an observation such that the original can be recovered (the trivial coarse-graining operation that leaves the observation unchanged), but there are many ways to represent observations such that the original observation can be recovered. Also practically, if you want to maintain composibility of approximations (i.e., approximating B from A then C from B is the same as approximating C from A), then it's usually (always?) valid to appoximate the outcome of coarse-graining through sampling, while the outcome of a change in representation usually cannot be approximated through sampling. If that's the right distinction, then I agree that the use of this distinction in differentiating sapience from sentience is unclear at best. It seems pretty obvious that both sentence and sapience must involve both kinds of seeing. I intend to read the rest of your posts, but it may take me a while.

It's not all just nerd stuff you know Anon! :^) ITT: Add any techniques, tips, tricks, or content links for any Digital Content Creation (DCC) tools and training to use when making robowaifus. >note: This isn't the 'Post Your Robowaifu-related OC Arts & Designs General' thread. We'll make one of those later perhaps. >--- I spent some time playing with the program Makehuman and I'll say I wasn't impressed. It's not possible to make anime real using Makehuman, in fact the options (for example eye size) are somewhat limited. But there's good news, don't worry! The creator of Makehuman went on to create a blender plugin called ManuelBastioniLAB which is much better (and has a much more humorous name). The plugin is easy to install and use (especially if you have a little blender experience). There are three different anime female defaults that are all pretty cute. (Pictured is a slightly modified Anime Female 2.) There are sliders to modify everything from finger length to eye position to boob size. It even has a posable skeleton. Unfortunately the anime models don't have inverse kinematic skeletons which are much easier to pose. Going forward I'm probably going to use MasturBationLABManuelBastioniLAB as the starting point for my designs. >=== -re-purpose OP for DCC consolidation

Actuators For Waifu Movement Part 2 Waifu Boogaloo Kiwi 09/02/2021 (Thu) 05:30:48 No.12810 [Reply] [Last]
(Original thread >>406) Kiwi back from the dead with a thread for the discussion of actuators that move your waifu! Part Two! Let's start with a quick refresher! 1. DC motors, these use a rotating magnetic field created through commutation to rotate a rotor! They're one of the cheapest options and are 30 to 70 percent efficient usually. The bigger they are, the more efficient they tend to be. 2. Brushless motors, these use a controller to induce a rotating magnetic field by turning electromagnets on and off in a sequence. They trend 60 to 95 percent efficiency 3. AC motors, Though there are many different type, they function similarly to brushless motors, they simply rely on the AC electricity to turn their electromagnets on and off to generate their field. Anywhere from 15 to 95 percent efficiency. 4. Stepper motors, brushless motors with ferrous teeth to focus magnetic flux. This allows for incredible control at the cost of greater mass and lower torque at higher speeds. Usually 50 to 80 percent efficient but, this depends on control algorithm/speed/and quality of the stepper. 5. Coiled Nylon Actuators! These things have an efficiency rating so low it's best to just say they aren't efficient. What they are though is dirt cheap and easy as heck to make! Don't even think about them, I did and it was awful. 6. Hydraulics! These rely on the distribution of pressure in a working liquid to move things like pistons. Though popular in large scale industry, their ability to be used in waifu's has yet to be proven. (Boston Dynamics Atlas runs on hydraulics but, it's a power guzzler and heavy) 7. Pneumatics, hydraulics lighter sister! This time the fluid is air! This has the advantage in weight. They aren't capable of the same power loads hydraulics are but, who wants their waifu to bench press a car? 8. Wax motors, hydraulic systems where the working fluid is expanding melted parafin wax! Cheap, low power, efficient, and produce incredible torque! Too bad they're slow and hard to control. 9. Explosion! Yes, you can move things through explosions! Gas engines work through explosions! Artificial muscles can be made by exploding a hydrogen and oxygen mixture in a piston, then using hydrolysis to turn the water back into hydrogen and oxygen. None of this is efficient or practical but, it's vital we keep our minds open. Though there are more actuators, most are derivatives or use these examples to work. Things like pulleys need an actuator to move them. Now, let's share, learn, and get our waifu moving! >--- < add'l, related links from Anon:

>>17206 >pic related Not my best work, but the power is soldered together with 100 amp banana jacks. Once I re-print the bracket for the controller I will do a test to see if it works.
>>17217 Calibration test: >https://u.smutty.horse/mkibuzgvdao.mp4 It works. Next step is trying positions after a bench mounting setup is made.
The 8318 motor plus the bracket and controller weigh around 800 grams together, and I have found that most knock-off mini cheetah robot dogs use 8108 motors. These thinner motors can sustain 22+ amps constant current vs 60+ amps of 8318, and weigh around 2-300 grams vs 5-600 grams. I don't think 60 amps are required for normal movement, and I will find out. It's clear that the meta for quadruped actuators is to go as wide and thin as possible to maximize torque per amp/weight. The 8308 motor I'm doing a test with costs about 80$ instead of 50$ (8318), so we will see if the trade-off is worth it. There is an 8110 motor for 45$ which may be the sweet spot. Biped robots could require twice the torque per hip actuator of a quadruped for the same weight for all I know. It's physics, right? I have an idea for a hydraulic silicone mckibben muscle actuators, and I will replace these rigid metal actuators in my next robot iteration if my idea works. The pure silicone actuator should solve the issue of having a rigid metal motor in your waifu's hips when you try to cuddle her. Bldc motors will work better for a turn-key iteration 1 proof of concept.
>>17742 Links to these cheap 8xxx motors? 45 seems stupid cheap for that size.

Robowaifu-OS & Robowaifu-Brain(cluster) Robowaifu Technician 09/13/2019 (Fri) 11:29:59 No.201 [Reply] [Last]
I realize it's a bit grandiose (though probably no more than the whole idea of creating a irl robowaifu in the first place) but I want to begin thinking about how to create a working robowaifu 'brain', and how to create a special operating system to run on her so she will have the best chance of remaining an open, safe & secure platform.

OS Language Choice
C is by far the single largest source of security holes in software history, so it's out more or less automatically by default. I'm sure that causes many C developers to sneer at the very thought of a non-C-based operating system, but the unavoidable cost of fixing the large numbers of bugs and security holes that are inevitable for a large C project is simply more than can be borne by a small team. There is much else to do besides writing code here, and C hooks can be generated wherever deemed necessary as well.

C++ is the best candidate for me personally, since it's the language I know best (I also know C too). It's also basically as low level as C but with far better abstractions and much better type-checking. And just like C, you can inline Assembler code wherever needed in C++. Although poorly-written C++ can be as bad as C code in terms of safety due to the necessity of it being compatible with C, it also has many facilities to not go there for the sane coder who adheres to simple, tried-and-true guidelines. There is also a good C++ project already ongoing that could be used for a clustered unikernel OS approach for speed and safety. This approach could save drastic amounts of time for many reasons, not the least of which is tightly constrained debugging. Every 'process' is literally it's own single-threaded kernel, and mountains of old-style cruft (and thinking) typical with OS development simply vanishes.

FORTRAN is a very well-established language for the sciences, but a) there aren't a lot of FORTRAN coders, and b) it's probably not the greatest at being a general-purpose language anyway. I'm sure it could be made to run robotics hardware, but would probably be a challenge to turn into an OS.

There are plenty of dujour SJW & coffee languages out there, but quite apart from the rampant faggotry & SJWtardism plainly evident in most of their communities, none of them have the kind of industrial experience and pure backbone that C, C++, or FORTRAN have.

D and Ada are special cases and possibly bear due consideration in some year's time, but for now C++ is the obvious choice to me for a Robowaifu OS foundation, Python probably being the best scripting language for it.

>>16615 It should be noted that quantum supermacy-type calculations aren't of any use except being provably hard enough for classical systems to simulate. My bet is we will train general intelligence on a classical hardware years before any quantum hardware is up to the task.
>>16620 This doesn't seem correct. Considering how Gaussian Boson Sampling can be done one trillion times faster than the fastest supercomputers today. A ratio of a minute to 100 million is simply astonishing. China took leadership easily by using a 76-photon prototype. We are just beginning to learn about advantages of quantum computing. In the next 5-10 years we will discover a lot more computational advantages. > we will train general intelligence on a classical hardware Due to scaling laws of neural nets there will never be such thing as AGI. Maybe human level AI (HLAI). Any computing system can only represent efficiently (through a short program) a tiny subset of all possible outputs. Most outputs require a program as long as themselves. Algorithmic approximability can be achieved only to degree. And most Turing reducible problems are exactly those which can be limit computed. So to go beyond you have to use algorithmic approximability. And this implies that general intelligence therefore is not possible for a subset of all possible outputs.
>>16628 Truthfully things that generate headlines like the gaussian boson sampling that you speak of are no more than toy problems that do not translate to generalized approaches. It doesn't matter whether a triangular prism can do optical FFT 100 million or 100 billion times as fast (latency, bandwidth?) as some super computer, it fundamentally cannot be generalized in any comparable way. I think people hype photonics too darn much. I believe within the next 10-20 we will see nothing but more improvements to classical microarctecture. Eventually we will find better ways to take advantage of laws of nature to compute for us (like that light prism) but it's certainly not going to be the hypebait you see today

>>17694 I've read that the mjbots quad a1 (prob uses a moteus controller) measures phase currents in a current control loop to detect electromagnetic torque. It doesn't detect cogging torque, gearing stiction, or friction. To measure all mechanical torque, you would need a seperate torque transducer. I'm not sure what kind of torque transducer I'd want to have.
>>17702 I don't recall ever seeing active torque sensors in recent, popular robots. I could be wrong though, Atlas probably has a bunch up in that million-dollar chassis somewhere. I was under the impression that the torque is measured in the early design stages on the bench, usually by holding the motor in a mount and measuring the relevant operating conditions (voltage, current, angular velocity, coil temperature, etc.) as progressively heavier loads are moved by an arm on the motor shaft. The torque then, would be derived from those measurements in real time in the final application. Friction and such would already be accounted for using this method. Cogging torque is a little different though, as it's dependent on rotor position as well as direction of rotation. This, too, can be measured in the motor characterizing though, and compensated for using a look-up table. Look into software anti-cogging or cogging torque compensation. An article about it: ht tps://hackaday.com/2016/02/23/anti-cogging-algorithm-brings-out-the-best-in-your-hobby-brushless-motors/ Note that this is from 2016 and pre-dates a lot of the popular robots using commodity BLDC motors out there, and probably BLDC gimbals as well. Studies like these ht tps://www.modlabupenn.org/anticogging/ are likely some of the foundational work that made those possible. As far as your torque sensors go, I'd recommend trying to characterize the motor as best you can without one first, using the easy to measure voltage, current, rotational speed, etc. (see above) and see if that's sufficient for your application. For instance, seeing if the motor you want to use even has enough torque to move the expected mass of your robot (perhaps divided by X number of motors if it's bipedal or quadrupedal, etc.). Or, if you're trying to do something fancy like jumping, if the motor has enough angular acceleration/velocity at that torque. Keep in mind that angle of the force vector? or whatever needs to be taken into consideration in your torque calcs; it's a lot easier to move a weight fixed to an arm from the 5 o'clock position to the 7 o'clock than it is from the 8 o'clock to the 10 o'clock. Need to integrate over the angle moved iirc. Or you can use an arm pushing on a load cell, where the distance moved is 0 and ignored. Also gotta keep in mind margins, losses in drive trains, external forces, etc. But whatever: just get that motor on the bench and get yourself a data-logging setup. Bolt the motor down to some wood, clamp it to a table, make a test arm with a flanged shaft coupler and some aluminum extrusion and go nuts. What I want to say to everyone who asks if this or that motor is good for x, y, or z. Fuck if I know, you gotta test it. I rambled a bit but that's my 2 cents on torque.
>>17705 great inputs Anon, thanks.
>>17705 >torque I've thought about this and I've decided to just test the motor to obtain a max torque value so the motion control scheme has a figure not to exceed. No need to overthink it in the design stage. >cogging Yeah I've noticed this too as soon as I had a motor in my hand. I went with the moteus because I had a feeling the dude would make a cogging torque compensation at some point, and luckily the boards after revision 4.11 have anti-cogging and some more secret sauce that my mech engineer brain doesn't understand >writeup https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M4O-LVki03qonNTkydv1N8gRteGIZk3ZyHd-mBpxL-U/edit#heading=h.x1qddq7g5cts >torque sensing setup I will probably use a weight scale and block of wood. Overcomplicating the project in the design phase is a rookie mistake that kills projects. The fastest way to the finish is to iterate on an achievable first version and only solve the problems that present themselves along the way. But you already knew that, didn't you? >moteus shilling I'd take a cheaper controller and motor if I could get large smooth torque and power output. I have thought about making a highly powered hydraulic system with a central pump or artificial muscles, but what I've came up with is not as safe and readily available as what I have right now. Maybe what we need is a less precise hydraulic system with a simpler motor to avoid the relatively large cost (1.5-3k) of controllers/motors. Something akin to big dog by boston dynamics? Their first robot to walk used hydraulics powered by a lawnmower engine. Pneumatics is out of the question because of it's need for a loud compressor and heavy tank. Nitinol is better off as kinetic energy absorbing material and shouldn't be shoehorned into a muscle, don't waste your time and money on it. Have you found any promising shape memory polymers? I haven't. This commentary about actuators may be better off in >>12810
>>17709 >This commentary about actuators may be better off in >>12810 True. I'll consider the move after it seems to me all the pertinent conversation dries up. If you think I've overlooked it at some point remind me in the /meta pls?

Buongiorno ragazzi, avrei bisogno di una informazione che non riesco a reperire altrove. Ho diversi film e serie televisive vecchie (si parla da anni 50 ad anni 80) Italiane e tradotte in Italiano, tutte rigorosamente registrate da televisioni private.Vorrei trovare un luogo dove poterle caricare per metterle a disposizione di più persone, in modo tale che se servissero o se qualcuno volesse visionarle, potesse farlo senza dover perdere troppo tempo a cercarle in rete. Cine blog sarebbe la soluzione ottimale, ma so come contattare l'amministrazione senza attivare i brillanegretti. Conoscete per caso qualche altro sito che raccolga tali video?
>>18990 *non so
>>18990 crei dei file torrent e posta i magnet qui
>>18992 Vorrei se possibile caricarli una volta per tutte e non bloccare l'unico calcolatore decente che ho in casa, considerato che molte serie potrebbero essere completamente oscure ai più non vorrei dover tenere torrent su per 10 anni senza che nessuno scarichi mai niente - e per intenderci, io aspetto almeno un rapporto di caricamento 3:1 su tutto ciò che possiedo come principio. Inoltre sono sul centinaio di GB, non ho tutto questo spazio da tenere bloccato, per il resto li ho in backup su dischi esterni.
>>18990 qualcuno ha la discografia della "compagnia dell'anello? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NasoCV4RN5g
Alcune possibilità: - Archive.org. Questa è la soluzione più sicura perché il sito nasce proprio per archiviare per i posteri tutta la roba rara e difficile da trovare e siccome è strettamente no-profit la roba non viene rimossa se non in casi rarissimi. Ci sono diverse serie americane e non degli anni 60-70 per esempio, molti video del tubo che sono stati rimossi, gli archivi dei grandi canali storici tipo AVGN, eccetera. Il problema è che caricare la roba in massa è un dito nel sedere e richiede una certa dimestichezza con la linea di comando, ma è fattibile. - YouTube, se sono molto vecchie non credo che te le rimuoveranno. Oppure usa Odysee/Rumble che se ne sbattono altamente. - Telegram. Apri un canale tematico generalista, o un canale per serie, e carichi lì. - Se sei disposto a spendere qualche fiorino puoi sempre affittare una seedbox con 1TB di spazio a tipo 50€ l'anno e lasciare in seeding per tempo indeterminato senza occupare il calcolatore e la linea di casa (se non all'inizio per caricare tutto). >>18993 > Inoltre sono sul centinaio di GB, Come sono codificate? Con dei codec più moderni tipo H265/AV1 puoi tranquillamente dimezzare lo spazio mantenendo la qualità tramite la transcodifica, sempre se sei disposto a perderci tempo.

Black Magic M66 3D Modelling Project & Battledroid Robowaifus SophieDev 07/27/2021 (Tue) 14:03:16 No.11776 [Reply] [Last]
Decided it may be best to place my 3D digital modelling efforts in a separate thread to my work on 'Elfdroid Sophie'. I think this thread will still belong under "Personal Projects". At the moment the 3D modelling begins over on her thread: >>11644 >>11657 I'm using some source material from Masamune Shirow's 1987 OVA "Black Magic - M66" (which itself was based off his 1983 manga). However, as a child of the late eighties/early nineties, I loved 'Transformers', and I was also a big fan of the 'Heavy Gear' series (similar to MechWarrior), and Armored Core. So I often get the urge to create battle-ready robowaifus, but I can only create them virtually. Because obviously I cannot get hold of machine-guns, explosives, tank cannons, and rocket launchers IRL. Good thing, too, since if I were given access to live ammunition I would almost certainly blow myself into a flying streamer of giblets. But I digress. This thread may also be a good place for any equally deranged anons who wish to post images of military-grade robowaifus, either found online or their own creations?

Datasets for Training AI Robowaifu Technician 04/09/2020 (Thu) 21:36:12 No.2300 [Reply] [Last]
Training AI and robowaifus requires immense amounts of data. It'd be useful to curate books and datasets to feed into our models or possibly build our own corpora to train on. The quality of data is really important. Garbage in is garbage out. The GPT2 pre-trained models for example are riddled with 'Advertisement' after paragraphs. Perhaps we can also discuss and share scripts for cleaning and preparing data here and anything else related to datasets. To start here are some large datasets I've found useful for training chatbots: >The Stanford Question Answering Dataset https://rajpurkar.github.io/SQuAD-explorer/ >Amazon QA http://jmcauley.ucsd.edu/data/amazon/qa/ >WikiText-103 https://blog.einstein.ai/the-wikitext-long-term-dependency-language-modeling-dataset/ >Arxiv Data from 24,000+ papers https://www.kaggle.com/neelshah18/arxivdataset >NIPS papers https://www.kaggle.com/benhamner/nips-papers >Frontiers in Neuroscience Journal Articles https://www.kaggle.com/markoarezina/frontiers-in-neuroscience-articles >Ubuntu Dialogue Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/rtatman/ubuntu-dialogue-corpus >4plebs.org data dump https://archive.org/details/4plebs-org-data-dump-2020-01 >The Movie Dialog Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/Cornell-University/movie-dialog-corpus >Common Crawl https://commoncrawl.org/the-data/

>>15834 >Or you can use img2dataset which will download the images locally and resize them: https://github.com/rom1504/img2dataset I just wonder if we can somehow capitalize on something at least vaguely similar to the approach that Nvidia is using for it's proprietary DLSS ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_learning_super_sampling Basically, have an image analysis pipeline that does the vast bulk of it's work at lower resolution for higher 'frame' rates, and then does a DL, Waifu2x-style upscaling near the latter end of the pipe?
>>15851 For image generation certainly, but for image analysis not so much. However, a lot of work has gone into finding optimal models with neural architecture search. And EfficientNetv2 for example starts training at a lower resolution with weak data augmentation then gradually increases the resolution and difficulty to minimize the amount of compute needed to train it. That last bit of high resolution training is unavoidable though if you want to extract useful information from it. https://arxiv.org/pdf/2104.00298.pdf >>15835 Kek, I think they said 1% of the dataset is NSFW and it's only labelled so by image content. I have an idea though to create a reward model for good image labels and then use it to filter out the poorly captioned images. Finetuning on cleaner data should fix a lot of the weirdness CompVis/latent-diffusion generates and improve CLIP. Another possibility might be using the reward model to generate superhuman quality captions for images. In the human feedback paper the 1B parameter model generated summaries were preferred 60% of the time compared to the actual human summarizes and 70% with the 6B model. https://openai.com/blog/learning-to-summarize-with-human-feedback/ To go even further beyond, it might be possible to generate these superhuman captions, score them, finetune the reward model on the new ones, and train the caption generator to make even better captions in an iterative loop to create extremely high quality datasets that would require 10 million man-hours to make by hand.

Stumbled across a high-quality dataset for reading comprehension. It provides aliases for answers so an answer like "the USA" can be accepted for "the United States". It also gives multiple documents from search results or Wikipedia for each question. >We present TriviaQA, a challenging reading comprehension dataset containing over 650K question-answer-evidence triples. TriviaQA includes 95K question-answer pairs authored by trivia enthusiasts and independently gathered evidence documents, six per question on average, that provide high quality distant supervision for answering the questions. We show that, in comparison to other recently introduced large-scale datasets, TriviaQA (1) has relatively complex, compositional questions, (2) has considerable syntactic and lexical variability between questions and corresponding answer-evidence sentences, and (3) requires more cross sentence reasoning to find answers. Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.03551 Download: http://nlp.cs.washington.edu/triviaqa/data/triviaqa-rc.tar.gz (2.7 GB) HotpotQA was briefly mentioned here already but it's also a high-quality reading comprehension and reasoning dataset that shouldn't be missed. >Existing question answering (QA) datasets fail to train QA systems to perform complex reasoning and provide explanations for answers. We introduce HOTPOTQA, a new dataset with 113k Wikipedia-based question-answer pairs with four key features: (1) the questions require finding and reasoning over multiple supporting documents to answer; (2) the questions are diverse and not constrained to any pre-existing knowledge bases or knowledge schemas; (3) we provide sentence-level supporting facts required for reasoning, allowing QA systems to reason with strong supervision and explain the predictions; (4) we offer a new type of factoid comparison questions to test QA systems’ ability to extract relevant facts and perform necessary comparison. We show that HOTPOTQA is challenging for the latest QA systems, and the supporting facts enable models to improve performance and make explainable predictions.

Styxhexenhammer666 Toad 01/31/2021 (Sun) 23:35:10 ID: 577c86 No.96575 [Reply]
Styx is cringy youtuber and a piece of shit. Read his foxdick farms page if you don't believe me. His ex-gf's enter his thread and start dropping dirt on him. And before you start damage controlling for your favorite skeletal friend-simulator and saying don't believe women bickers they lie, he admits it was all true in a couple videos. Here are some key bits: -He creeped on several underage youtubers. Wrote comments on their channels and cringey lines flirting with them. When told that one of them was underage, he replied "Perfection can wait." Got rejected by StelleToad McKinley. Makes vague YouTube videos crying about it. Write youtube comments about walking into the woods and alluding to not coming back with suicide-poetry to cope with the rejection. Was drinking himself to sleep with wine to cope, not eating much food, and crying. -He wears makeup and unironically thinks he looks good despite being butt-fucking ugly. -He is the definition of a poser and a try-hard. His entire identity is larping. -Gets confronted by "Revenge of the Cis" on Tonka's Kumite show about his creeping on underage youtubers and pedo accusations (Stella Christine/Stelle Toad McKinley and at least 1 other). Styx tries to get his braindead audience to flag down the show in real-time (strangely never gets flak even though Toad McKinley was bullied for years about flagging jcaesar187's stream down "Matt NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.") Eventually comes on the Kumite drunk and threatens to sue them and says, "Do you know how much money I make. You don't wanna mess with me!" Is seething and fuming and sounds like a disturbed mess. However, Styx says that the youtube comments were fake and doctored in photoshop. He lied about this to avoid the embarrassment and humiliation of being rejected by the girl and for being accused of pedophila since she was underage. The comments were real. Styx lied under pressure. But ROTC apologizes in the moment bickers it's awkward and sing him Happy Birthday. -StelleToad McKinley, an underage youtuber, broke his heart and publicly embarrassed him. Styx was writing gay poetry about how heartbroken he was and was planning on grooming the girl to be his woman. He lied about the whole thing and pretended it was all faked, photoshops by Antifa to cover his larpy, cringy, ass. -He has hard-drives of nudes of all the women he flirts with and tries to pressure them into masturbating on camera with him over webcam. -He convinced a young women to move into his parent's Vermont home NEET-cave bedroom. -He impregnated the women and cheated on her. -Styx pressured and threatened the women into having an abortion bickers he thought he was too young to have to accept responsibility for his actions (He was 30 at the time. Lol). -Styx threatened to secretly slip her an herbal drink made from his herb garden that would abort her baby if she didn't comply and go to Planned Parenthood to abort it, saying the drink would give her a heavier menstrual flow for the month as it killed the baby. -Styx drove his gf to her Planned Parenthood appointments but when she wanted to get something to eat from a restaurant across town, Styx refused and shit his pants and didn&apos;t do the basic accommodation for the gf he just made abort her own baby. bickers Styx has anxiety and he's not used to leaving his bedroom as a NEET so the whole world makes his autistic brain have a panic attack and unfamiliar locations hurt his autistic brain that craves routine and familiarity. -Styx starts cheating on his gf with a black women from the UK that he flies into Vermont and meet in hotel rooms. -Styx lies about it to his live-in gf, gaslights her, but she finds out anyway. She beats him up and he deserves it and more. -Styx uploads a couple videos on YouTube, moping and crying, trying to elicit audience sympathy and get counseling, complaining about his personal life. His audience eats it up, bc he's their friend-simulator that talks to them through the screen evey day and he seems like a nice guy when he talks to you every day in his 5 minute videos. Lol. Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gasey were also very nice guys and pillars of the community, until they found out they were rapists and serial killers with bodies of little boys underneath Gasey's house and Bundy's trail of dozens of murdered women. -As a narcissist, Styx cries about his personal problems to his audience, even though he was the one that caused the drama with his cheating on all his gf's. The skeletal narcissist cries out in pain as he strikes you. -Styx starts cheating with another Dutch youtuber named "Elizabeth's Philosophy" who is an ugly-average blonde woman with no eyebrows and looks like a Neanderthal. She sends his a boob pic so he has to fly to the Netherlands to get that ugly Dutch girl pussy.

>>96575 Styx is such a strange creature. I think he moved to the Netherlands and lives there now? also listening to some of his streams and videos, he is the typical magapede now, for some reason and goes with the flow of media is telling lies but except when it comes to Ukraine, I dunno why but for some reason he believes these things and even is a Ukrainian shill in many ways. He says that everything that Russia says is fake and then believes for some unknown reason that the Russian oligarchs will assassinate Putin bickers Putin and the FSB did it to some oligarchs and high members in Russian society a few times, along with it being a monthly occurrence in the 90s and early naughts. I am not sure, if Styx sees the Donbas thing as fake news, of them wanting to be with Russia in 2015 or whenever it was, but it would not surprise me. But yeah, Styx seems to be out there with the whole Ukraine thing, I believe. He believes that the Ukrainians are going to win the war and it is not going to be a ceasefire in the near future, when too many foreign nationals are KIA or MIA, this is going to create the ceasefire bickers for now, you can contract yourself to the Ukrainian military without any penalty from some NATO countries. And the Russians have made it clear that mercenaries aren't going to get the POW treatment, but will be seen as a terrorist faction.
Asston is big piece of shit, if he wanted to make any good shit with his failed Kino Casino he should've started to alog Styxhexenhammer666 and get in debate with him.

Hello, i need your help, i got tired of searching. In my childhood and early teenage years i ate pizza from a southern italian place, don't know if napolitano or siciliano, but it was quite different from the others. Dude died from a heart attack without giving the recipe to his sons and wife so they ended up closing the place and having to work basic services. -The dough was thick, around a hand's high (1.5 or even 2cm) it didn't have many air pockets inside but the ones that did had were huge, not tall but certainly long so i suppose it had a low hydration, maybe 50% or under? -The texture was chewy and doughy, like almost uncooked dough, but it tasted well-done like a real bakery donut would, after biting it compressed a bit like grasping a pillow, and looked somewhat darker than normal so maybe it was a big uncooked. -Taste was buttery, a hint of pork lard. Cooked in wood oven for a while (10+ minutes). I can source "real" mozzarella (as in fresh, moist and in bundles, not grated and dried) and i learned how to make several types of sauces (sans San Marzano tomatoes) from both italians i lived with and internet stuff. I can get and make everything except that dough, i tried napolitan and it tastes fine but it isn't the same, it's crunchy and thin with a soft interior but unlike the crispy, heavy and dough thick that tasted somewhat rich. Romana tastes like normal tabula pizza, it's standard issue and not really close to it as it is well done all around and crunchy, foccacia is the same thickness but the interior of the dough is the opposite (and the torino people in charge of the place were jewish, didn't bring me back my change), the only thing that looks close is sficione but the dough is a sponge, like a sweet bread, rather than glutinous blanket. Maybe it was a bit undercooked, lard infused sficione but this technique has crumbly dough made of semolina so maybe not really. Do you guys know or can suspect what type of pizza or dough it was? it's been almost a decade and i can't still find or make that thing.

>>19040 Do you have any additional info about the people running the pizzeria? "Southern italian place" is rather vague, italian cuisine is so rich in culinary tecniques and recipes that it probably has endless variations. I would suggest you to try in the focaccia realm, since the main feature you are mentioning is thickness (while pizza romana and napoletana are both thin). Have you tried focaccia pugliese (apulian focaccia)? Maybe the people from your local pizzeria in your childhood came from Bari? However, you can try this simple but extremely delicious and thick focaccia recipe I use to make my own. If you plunge this dough into a 28/30 cm diameter baking pan you will obtain a thick, delicious pizza, soft inside but with a thin and crunchy crust outside. This recipe has a potatoes+soft cheese topping but you can put whatever you prefer on it. Original italian recipe here https://blog.giallozafferano.it/lacucinadivane/focaccia-soffice-patate-e-stracchino/ Let me know if you will try to bake this.

Seeing pictures i can make a quick comparison, the overall form did look like a focaccia pugliese but with more toppings, the dough inside and its compression looked kinda like second pic but with less bubbles, third pic is very similar to what i saw inside but double the height and a couple more bubbles/pockets, they were few but kinda big in comparison to foccacia pugliese which has tons but very small.

The Sumomo Project Chobitsu Board owner 11/24/2021 (Wed) 17:27:18 No.14409 [Reply] [Last]
So I've been working for a while at devising an integrated approach to help manage some of the software complexity we are surely going to encounter when creating working robowaifus. I went down many different bunny trails and (often) fruitless paths of exploration. In the end I've finally hit on a relatively simplistic approach that AFAICT will actually allow us to both have the great flexibility we'll be needing, and without adding undue overhead and complexity. I call this the RW Foundations library, and I believe it's going to help us all out a lot with creating workable & efficient software that (very hopefully) will allow us to do many things for our robowaifus using only low-end, commodity hardware like the various single-board computers (SBCs) and microcontrollers. Devices like the Beaglebone Blue and Arduino Nano for example. Of course, we likely will also need more powerful machines for some tasks as well. But again, hopefully, the RW Foundations approach will integrate smoothly with that need as well and allow our robowaifus to smoothly interoperate with external computing and other resources. I suppose time will tell. So, to commemorate /robowaifu/'s 5th birthday this weekend, I've prepared a little demonstration project called Sumomo. The near-term goal for the project is simply to create a cute little animated avatar system that allows the characters Sumomo and Kotoko (from the Chobits anime series) to run around having fun and interacting with Anon. But this is also a serious effort, and the intent is to begin fleshing out the real-world robotics needs during the development of this project. Think of it kind of like a kickstarter for real-world robowaifus in the end, but one that's a very gradual effort toward that goal and a little fun along the way. I'll use this thread as a devblog and perhaps also a bit of a debate and training forum for the many issues we all encounter, and how a cute little fairybot/moebot pair can help us all solve a few of them. Anyway, happy birthday /robowaifu/ I love you guys! Here is my little birthday present to you. === >rw_sumomo-v211124.tar.xz.sha256sum 8fceec2958ee75d3c7a33742af134670d0a7349e5da4d83487eb34a2c9f1d4ac *rw_sumomo-v211124.tar.xz >backup drop

>>16509 Try LLVM's static-build project, GCC's -fanalyzer flag, and cppcheck, those are some good linters. Also always make programs portable and write tests. I also found cparser's compiler warnings quite good when I used it, Meson doesn't support cparser though. Formal verification makes sense but it's just not practical or useful at the moment. For instance, CompCert still depends on the GCC preprocessor and the system's linker, it's only a relatively small component of a complete system. There are easier things with greater impact to work towards. >>16543 I see extern/json.hpp is copypasted from elsewhere. Copypasting dependencies is generally a bad idea, often they accumulate local modifications until they're incompatible and irreconcilable with the original, or the original moves on and the local version stays. It's also more work than just counting on the system to have a reasonably recent version. This guy has an objective comparison between JSON implementations: https://github.com/miloyip/nativejson-benchmark Last time I went through that list I decided on Jansson as it does well (but not the best) in every metric and it's also portable and widely packaged. Though I only use JSON when I'm forced to, otherwise I go with S-expressions or an original binary format.

Meido ownership as lifestyle choice--taking things higher, Anon! :^) Not much new to talk about for this drop, tbh. Really just to step out and get back into the game for the project. A few little odds & ends here & there to tighten things up in the code just a bit but nothing new externally. Probably not much more to add to RW Pageone, seems most of the basics have been covered sufficiently well now to begin thinking more seriously about Bumpmaster to come. We may go straight to a crude GUI approximation soon, rather than grind things out on the backend much further atm. Who knows, we'll see. Anyway please stay encouraged and keep moving forward Anon! :^) Cheers. === >version.log v.221022 --------------- -add 'thrd_lim' reserve for pg_1s_list, top_bump_thrds(); bumpmaster -add rd_thrd_posts(); bumpmaster -add 'cat_json' empty check, top_bump_thrds(); bumpmaster

Longtime lurker, only occasional poster here. I've read through this whole thread again and I still don't understand it. What is this? The OP states it's code for working with single board computers and shit but I don't see them mentioned again. What is bumpmaster? Imageboard software? Is this that archival project you were working on? What is Sumomo's World? Some kind of 2D waifu simulator/game? Is it playable/usable? Screenshots? Whatever happened to that? What is an arigato-class robowaifu? Does this exist? I don't believe I've seen it referenced anywhere else before. >>15723 >that code box What even is this? What is a Pandora?

Fuzhou the Buttergolem/Buttermunculus/Hapabutter/Butterboy Toad 08/30/2021 (Mon) 19:24:05 No.117126 [Reply] [Last]
Have (you) ever wondered what it would be like when it got to the point that Dominic Vanner of all cows would have his own a-log, a freakish abomination of soy and butter that was worse than him in almost every respect? The pathetic golem of butter, Fuzhou, has finally fulfilled that role and exceeded expectations in every way possible. Fuz is a julaytoasted grifter trying to pick up the crumbs left by Jewsh Moon, his views are fat single ladies into internet drama, those being 95% of his views. Like a lot of drama grifters, Fuz is a lolcow by his own right thanks to his personal life and the humiliation he went online. Being a spineless golem, Fuz make two hours streams reading foxdickfarms threads or wikipedia to get his "cocks" hoping to make some money to buy sex toys to his Onlyfans "girlfriend", more weed and funko pops for himself and finally have money enough to leave his parents house in his middle 20's. But Fuz channel is far from being interesting or the focus to his alogs. Even though he's a black hole of humor, Fuz has become a fun figure to watch and debate bickers of his own dramas, failures and actions, catching the attention of certain groups and even ecelebs. At first glance, Fuzhou appears to be just an unfunny grifter with zero talent and is seen as just one of so many julaytoasted wannabie Mister Metokurs clones that have plagued this side of the internet in recent years. But a deep look, penetrating the layer of fat and boredom that surrounds him reveals a soulless automaton, but able to feel at some level a certain self hate for himself and for the world. In a philosophical way, he is able to become interesting. Do Golems dream of butter sheep? Is Fuz a sample of what the kikes want for the future? Maybe he's the next step of the mankind, the future nu-male, Homo Consumat Butyrum. Vaxxed, cucked, only caring about consooming and extremely submissive. A ruined and terrible form of life, a Butter Golem.

After several multiple "mysterious" bans and exclusions going on in discord while Fuz was around in Emptyhero server, I'm happy to report that since Fuzhou is no longer part of the server these events have stopped happening. However, Fuzhou is still mad about the entire shitshow and especially about the existence of this thread. No only that, but he's shitting bricks afraid of TheGatorGamer discovering the ties he previously had with Keffels and other trannies z-celebs.

Robowaifu@home: Together We Are Powerful Robowaifu Technician 03/14/2021 (Sun) 09:30:29 No.8958 [Reply] [Last]
The biggest hurdle to making quick progress in AI is the lack of compute to train our own original models, yet there are millions of gamers with GPUs sitting around barely getting used, potentially an order of magnitude more compute than Google and Amazon combined. I've figured out a way though we can connect hundreds of computers together to train AI models by using gradient accumulation. How it works is by doing several training steps and accumulating the loss of each step, then dividing by the amount of accumulation steps taken before the optimizer step. If you have a batch size of 4 and do 256 training steps before an optimizer step, it's like training with a batch size of 1024. The larger the batch size and gradient accumulation steps are, the faster the model converges and the higher final accuracy it achieves. It's the most effective way to use a limited computing budget: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX8LLYdQ-cA These training steps don't need to be calculated by a single computer but can be distributed across a network. A decent amount of bandwidth will be required to send the gradients each optimizer step and the training data. Deep gradient compression achieves a gradient compression ratio from 270x to 600x without losing accuracy, but it's still going to be using about 0.5 MB download and upload to train something like GPT2-medium each optimizer step, or about 4-6 mbps on a Tesla T4. However, we can reduce this bandwidth by doing several training steps before contributing gradients to the server. Taking 25 would reduce it to about 0.2 mbps. Both slow and fast computers can contribute so long as they have the memory to hold the model. A slower computer might only send one training step whereas a fast one might contribute ten to the accumulated gradient. Some research needs to be done if a variable accumulation step size impacts training, but it could be adjusted as people join and leave the network. All that's needed to do this is a VPS. Contributors wanting anonymity can use proxies or TOR, but project owners will need to use VPNs with sufficient bandwidth and dedicated IPs if they wish that much anonymity. The VPS doesn't need an expensive GPU rental either. The fastest computer in the group could be chosen to calculate the optimizer steps. The server would just need to collect the gradients, decompress them, add them together, compress again and send the accumulated gradient to the computer calculating the optimizer step. Or if the optimizing computer has sufficient bandwidth, it could download all the compressed gradients from the server and calculate the accumulated gradient itself. My internet has 200 mbps download so it could potentially handle up to 1000 computers by keeping the bandwidth to 0.2 mbps. Attacks on the network could be mitigated by analyzing the gradients, discarding nonsensical ones and banning clients that send junk, or possibly by using PGP keys to create a pseudo-anonymous web of trust. Libraries for distributed training implementing DGC already exist, although not as advanced as I'm envisioning yet: https://github.com/synxlin/deep-gradient-compression I think this will also be a good way to get more people involved. Most people don't know enough about AI or robotics enough to help but if they can contribute their GPU to someone's robowaifu AI they like and watch her improve each day they will feel good about it and get more involved. At scale though some care will need to be taken that people don't agree to run dangerous code on their computers, either through a library that constructs the models from instructions or something else. And where the gradients are calculated does not matter. They could come from all kinds of hardware, platforms and software like PyTorch, Tensorflow or mlpack.

>>17549 >Your attitude is completely assinine. You're making assumptions about a person that have already been demonstrated false, and you're using 'meme' language to degrade them. I don't see how to motivate people to do diligent engineering tbh. If people can get praise and updoots for DL-flavored shower thoughts on an imageboard promising unrealistic order of magnitude gains, they will do just that, mostly. It seems all remotely capable people from the first world are vacuumed by startups and industry, and what remains, in most of the best cases, is just undergrads playing with ideas from meme papers - until they crash into reality, finally git gud and find a job which will look like a salvation by that time (mind you, I don't like this outcome but this is how it works in most cases). Would be cool if someone proved my observation false - and I can find a vanishingly small minority of human counterexamples - just not here. I don't fear causing negative reactions at all, I have seen all too many projects going nowhere mostly via this incentive hijacking and an encroaching victory of talkers over builders. As you may see I have more than enough of wordcel quality as well (thankfully, not the only gift of mother Nature) - this environment selects for this property, which should be noticed and punished before it is all too late. If you are with me by this time, I can give you several valuable suggestions. If you really want to win, fulfill three requirements: 1. Design and implement a realistic deep learning system that is capable of training in self-supervised and reinforcement learning modes. The system should maximize parameter efficiency, and should be able to be run on high-powered consumer hardware. Low-powered hardware is a poor man's deadend. 2. Design and implement either a distributed training system, or a social project to gather cryptocurrency from people and knowhow to channel it into normal centralized training of your system. 3. Amass stable and massive popular support among individuals loyal to your case and owning enough compute or cryptocurrency to participate in the training run. Train your system on general-purpose task distribution in Gato-like fashion. Release the checkpoint via a signed magnet link. The vast majority of approaches that don't tick these checkboxes are pity trash and self-delusion.

>Do I need to say that this is wishful thinking, anon, does it help... I've played around with them already on toy problems and saw potential in them, and I doubt someone at Google with 18k citations and someone else at Microsoft with 7k spend their time publishing meme papers for the lulz. Obviously there is a loss in complexity but it gives the option to trade off accuracy for less parameters so they can be sent over the net. I really don't care about state of the art results or being an outstanding engineer. It just needs to get the job done. >17544 >Seriously, try to simulate even a simple distributed training run on your machine, see how the loss curve compares to normal dense training I'll run some tests on different parameter reductions. If you have your own feel free to share your results. I think there was a paper that showed it's faster to train a model with more parameters and distil it into a smaller model. It's something to consider whether it's even worth distributing training or to just buy better hardware. >and become blackpilled like myself and become a better engineer through the experience. I was blackpilled until I started using LAMB instead of Adam. Being bitter and cynical isn't useful to getting stuff done. I neither believe or disbelieve papers. I just see them as possibilities to be explored when appropriate. Once you start making judgments something is just wishful thinking without actually testing it you're cutting off the possibility of ever knowing because you've already decided it's no good. >>17549 He's not really wrong to be honest. It's hard not to be cynical. Most gradient compression methods like PowerSGD and others often make wild claims but in practice require perfect hyperparameters for the task at hand and can become unstable or fail midway without warning. The 1-bit LAMB paper seems a lot more reasonable since they're only claiming a 4x reduction and LAMB has been pretty robust for me in all use cases except small batch sizes. >>17551 >This assumes the industry will continue feeding the increasingly problematic (their words) and outdated (the future ISN'T opensource, hello anon) hobbyist freeriders their precious checkpoints Hugging Face has already started removing 'problematic' checkpoints but people are happily sharing them over torrents. I also don't think people should expect there to be many useful pretrained models in the future from the West, except small nerfed ones verifiably 'unproblematic' and torrents created by individuals. Look at the heat Stability.AI is taking for releasing models publicly and they don't even care a shred about open-source. They happily banned open-source contributors they saw as problematic and the rest is all rhetoric for free advertising.

This post is off topic. Feel free to delete it or move it if you don't want it here. >>17551 >Yes this is what defeat looks like. That's not a defeat scenario, that's what I expect is the inevitable scenario for all parties, even well-funded ones. Large models have gotten 10x bigger year-on-year since 2018, and I think training costs have risen faster than that. Companies are eventually going to be forced to specialize in their AI direction, at which point none of them will be "the best" at everything. At that point, if you want "the best" AI, you'll need to be able to plug into multiple models from multiple parties regardless of how well-funded you are. In the long run, no model performs better than a mixture of all the leading models. I'm not concerned about new legislation hindering open source AI. The US is far too afraid of China taking the lead on tech to introduce legislation that hinders AI development in any meaningful way. AI deployment, maybe, but AI development, no. I would guess that any Five Eyes country will be the same. The EU is going to get screwed on legislation as usual. That sucks, but as far as I know, the majority of Western open source AI enthusiasm is in the US and UK, and EU legislation is largely irrelevant in this. (Sorry if you're in the EU. If you do get screwed on legislation, maybe some of us can help proxy your work.) At least in the US, it's more likely that people will use current legislation against open source AI development, but I think even that is unlikely to succeed at scale. As far as taking advantage of open source code goes, it looks like Microsoft will be forced to take lead on the defense thanks to GitHub and Copilot, and they are very familiar with large legal battles around software. As far as making sure AI has access to copyrighted data, Google has an enormous stake in this, and they have won at least one related battle (Authors Guild, Inc. v. Google) in the US Supreme Court with a ruling that's definitely broad enough to cover AI use cases. As far as open source development goes, open source code and published research papers fall under the First Amendment, and this has been tested at the federal level even for something as extreme as cryptography (Bernstein v. Department of State). These cases can be overturned by the Supreme Court, but public opinion does not sway the current Supreme Court, as has been demonstrated recently with Row v. Wade. From the defense to the precedents to the judges, everything seems to work in favor of open source software in the US.

Poseidon, former right-winger grifter and Pagan LARPer / Neet shitskin and schizo Brian Holloman 03/19/2022 (Sat) 23:19:42 ID: 90501c No.141211 [Reply] [Last]
Poseidon is one of those many grifters who started getting into the "redpill" bus around 2016 by making videos about immigration in Europe. As "greek-sicilian" he was said to have a more European opinion than the average right-wingers from UK, German and USA about all subjects. However, he never became popular in circles like 4chan /pol/, with only 8chan /pol/ paying any attention to him and a few European anons. In 2018 he had his former channel take down, creating a second channel (his actual one). But since 2019 he started to show himself to be a little less mature and socially successful as he claimed. During weekends, he started doing livestreams called "Whitepilled weekend" in which it constituted of him quietly reading news with his heavy accent while free-copyright music played in the background. Note that as a European, he started these streams every weekend around 2am in European time. Over time, these livestreams began to gain a share of trolls, mocking the fact that Poseidon, who was said to be a mature man, of family, spent every weekend awake hoping to get donations and seething about any jokes about him on chat. After 8chan /pol/ notice that Poseidon didn't take criticism well and was openly banning anyone with the slightest criticism of him the views started to drop and more trolls started to show up. Over time, he stopped those livestreams, according to him, the Catholic Church was being responsible for his troll problems, by sending the trolls together with american Daily Stormer trolls. With that, his first signs of schizophrenia and narcissism showed. In 2020 Poseidon has embarked on the covid wave, and started bleeding views and subscribers. His videos about immigration and politics in Europe stopped and he started to make videos saying how Donald Trump is a massive loser retard and same about any people who supported him, to the point of making a sequence of videos proving that Biden won the election legitimately. Interspersed with videos about Biden being a "chad", he made multiple videos about covid restrictions and vaccine. In these videos, he was totally in favor of forced vaccination, use of masks and severe restrictions. With that, his views, which he now denounces as "far-right" and "Crazy Christians" started jumping off the boat and making serious criticisms about him. How Poseidon reacted? He started replying, comment by comment, personally attacking anyone criticizing him. He would look at anyone's Youtube channel criticizing him and find any detail about the person's personal life or their taste in games, music, etc. He also obsessively started attacking any Americans or Christians in the comments of his videos even if some of those didn't show any criticism about him. Some of the videos around this time had their comment section locked. At the same time, he made a video saying that the right-winger movement was being controlled by the Catholic Church, KGB and American elite. That it would be impossible for Europe to prosper as long as Christians lived in Europe or people voted for politics with any connection with Russia or USA, once again attacking any European politics who have met at any time in their lives with Putin or Trump or are against covid restrictions. Even his old opinions about immigration changed, now he denounces "White Genocide" as a conspiracy theory made up by crazy far-right incels and says the Elite is right to want to have more low-cost employees in Europe and North America and Christians are just worried about being replaced with Muslims and don't care about anything else. With that, he lost around 3k subscribers in this year so far, with downvotes being predominant. So he started making videos claiming he was being attacked by NeoNazis and Christians who had the goal of dox him and his family, although there is no evidence that anyone really cared enough about him to do so. How the far-right are the true terrorists when compared to Antifa and he was being unfairly attacked by extremists and genocidal idiots who wish for the end of the world instead of getting a vaccine. From above 25k subscribers, now his channel has less than 6k subs.

>>17183 >>17184 Thanks, very fascinating and informative. I don't think your first pic looks horrible, but if it's a lot of work while even not finished, then maybe it's not the right way. Not sure what your goal is, though, beyond learning. Modelling head for robowaifus or making an animated girlfriend. It's good that you tried out the hard stuff, but it seems it would be easier to go with a simpler model. Tbh, I think for a animated girlfriend a 2D anime style (low-poly?) might be sufficient. Your difficulties also explain why there aren't that many 3D heads freely available. I considered a while ago to use a service like Fivrr to get some female head modeled. This seems to be done in poor countries (by children, maybe). I hope you know, just in case if you planned to make a job out of it. If you want to build some kind of program or produce a short movie, then maybe only work on the sketch and then source the rest of the work out to Pakistan.
>>17185 > Not sure what your goal is, though, beyond learning. > Just in case if you planned to make a job out of it. Yeah, I just wanted to learn so it's easier for me to make 3D models and art. Just for personal enjoyment. Because making digital art of robot waifus is much cheaper and easier than making actual physical robot waifus! Plus there are no constraints and you can make whatever the hell you want! If you get really good at it, you can put completed, rigged models up for sale on various websites, but this would be a small side-hustle at best. Nobody actually needs 3D art. Especially not as Clown-World continues down it's spiral of self-destruction
>>17191 Okay, but you could try to make simpler animations which can be used for a "chatbot" or virtual robowaifu. Also, for telling animated stories, which would still be interesting to people and a competition to the established media. That's just what I would be doing if I would be going for 3D art, and I might one day when my robowaifu is finished.

Did an engineering exercise to make a """recreational companion robot""" Worked on it for a week or two and hit the MVP. My preferred alternative git service is on the fritz so I'm posting the code here. >What does it do? You press the button to stimulate it, and it makes faces based on the stimulation level. The goal was to demonstrate how little is needed to make a companion robot. A "minimum viable waifu", if you will. I think small, easily replicable lil' deliverables like this would help interest in the robowaifu project, because the bar to entry is low. (In both skill and cost). It has meme potential.

>>17506 >I guess the big question is "what features would be most useful"? I think the 'big' answer is: whatever we here decide they should be. :^) For now, for my own part I'd suggest that the software is the first place to begin, since it is by far the most malleable & inexpensive to start with for initial prototyping. Function stubs can be written out to crystalize the notions well before the hardware need be spec'd. EG: int respond_to_boop (int const boop_strength) { if (boop_strength > 50) return OUCH_RESPONSE; else return LOL_RESPONSE; } This should make it all clear enough to everyone where you're going with things. It will also allow for very gradual introduction of H/W designs for the overall project, for any anon who may later take an interest in a specific notion or hardware capability. Make sense?

Since we have no thread for hands, I'm now opening one. Aside the AI, it might be the most difficult thing to archive. For now, we could at least collect and discuss some ideas about it. There's Will Cogleys channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/WillCogley - he's on his way to build a motor driven biomimetic hand. It's for humans eventually, so not much space for sensors right now, which can't be wired to humans anyways. He knows a lot about hands and we might be able to learn from it, and build something (even much smaller) for our waifus.

>>16664 This posting and the response should be moved into a thread about audio recognition or conversational AI / chatbots, since this thread is about speech synthesis not recognition.
>>16669 The techniques for the audio in there are studied now under phonetics. The techniques for the video in there are studied under articulatory synthesis. Articulatory synthesis is difficult and computationally expensive. I don't know of a good, flexible framework for doing that, so I wouldn't know how to get started on waifu speech with that. Under phonetics, the main techniques before deep neural networks were formant synthesis and concatenative synthesis. Formant synthesis will result in recognizable sounds, but not human voices. It's what you're hearing in the video. Concatenative synthesis requires huge diphone sound banks, which represent sound pieces that can be combined. (Phone = single stable sound. Diphone = adjacent pair of phones. A diphone sound bank cuts off each diphone at the midpoints of the phones since it's much easier to concatenate phones cleanly at the midpoints rather than the endpoints. This is what Hatsune Miku uses.) Concatenative synthesis is more efficient than deep neural networks, but deep neural networks are far, far more natural, controllable, and flexible. Seriously, I highly recommend following in the PPP's footsteps here. Deep neural networks are the best way forward. They can produce higher quality results with better controls and with less data than any other approach. Programmatically, they're also flexible enough to incorporate any advances you might might see from phonetics and articulatory synthesis. The current deep neural networks for speech generation already borrow a lot of ideas from phonetics.

https://github.com/openai/whisper Oh shit, audio transcription has surpassed average human level and now competitive with professional transcription. OpenAI has gone off its investor rails and completely open-sourced the model and weights. On top of that it's multilingual and can do Japanese fairly well. This could be used for transcribing audio from vtubers, audio books, and anime with missing subtitles. Unfortunately it doesn't do speaker detection as far as I know but it might be possible to train another model to use the encoded audio features to detect them.

Emotions in Robowaifus. Robowaifu Technician 07/26/2022 (Tue) 02:05:49 No.17027 [Reply]
Hello, part-time lurker here. (Please excuse me if a thread on this topic exists already) I have and idea on how we could plan to implement emotions easily into our Robowaifus. This idea stems from Chobits where Persocoms change behavior based on battery level. So please consider this. Emotions would be separated into two groups. Internal and external stimuli. Internal stimuli emotions are things like lethargy, hunger, weakness, etc. Things that are at their base are derived from lower battery and damaged components. External stimuli emotions, things like happiness, sadness, etc. Provoked from outside events, mostly relating to how the humans (and master) around her act. A mob mentality way of processing emotions. All of this would be devoid of any requirement for AI, which would quicken development until we make/get a general AI. So until that time comes I think this artificial implementation for emotions would work fine. Though when AIs enter the picture this emotion concept is simple enough that a compatability layer could be added so that the AI can connect and change these emotions into something more intelligent. Perhaps a more human emotional response system [irrational first thought into more thought out rational/personality centered response] or a direct change of the base emotional response by the AI as it distinguish itself from the stock personality to something new. :] > (>>18 - related-thread, personality)

When latent impressions stored from our lifetime of experiences become active they cause an emotional reaction, an actual chemical reaction in the body that activates certain parts of the brain, which then leads to a conscious thought process, which further develops into actions. If you observe your emotional reactions you will notice that most, if not all of them, are either about getting what you want or not getting what you want. If you trace them back to their source they all arise from self-preservation, either from the primal needs such as food, sex and sleep or attachment to an identity (which includes family, friends, community, country, species, environment and even ideas). Latent impressions color our thought process and bias it in many ways. Think of the word 'car' and observe your thoughts. What comes to mind first? What color is it? What shape is it? Did an actual car arise in your mind or another vehicle like a truck? Is it big or small? Do you like cars or dislike them? Do they remind you of something else or something from the past or future? If you ask friends what comes to mind first about a word, you'll find everyone colors words differently. Some very little, some a lot. Most of these colorings come from our desires being fulfilled or unfulfilled, which become stored as latent impressions and bias our attention. Language models are already fully capable of coloring 'thoughts'. The difference is their latent impressions come from an amalgamation of data collected from the internet. There's no cyclical process involved between the resulting actions affecting the latent impressions and those new ones creating fresh actions since current models do not have a plastic memory. So the first step towards creating emotions is creating a working memory. Once we have that we could have a much more productive conversation about emotions and engineering ideal ones. One idea I've had to build a working memory into off-the-shelf models is to do something akin to prefix tuning or multi-modal few-shot learning by prefixing embeddings to the context which are continuously updated to remember as much as possible, and like our own latent impressions, the context would activate different parts of the memory bank that would in turn influence the prefix embeddings and resulting generation. This would be the first step towards a working memory. From there it would need to develop into inserting embeddings into the context and coloring the token embeddings themselves within some constraints to ensure stability.
I believe OP had the right idea and that almost immediately the thread went into overthinking mode. Start simple, like reacting to low battery status. I would also like to emphasize: Start transparent. One can say that emotional states are related to different modes of problem solving and so and so forth, but this all gets very indirect. At the start, I'd rather only have emotions that are directly and immediately communicated, so you have immediate feedback about how well this works. So, ideas about simulating an emotion like nostalgia (is that even an emotion?) I would put aside for the time being. The state of the eyelids is something practical to start with. Multiple aspects could be measured and summed together for creating the overall effect. -battery status -time of the day -darkness for some time -movement (& how much & how fast & which direction) -eyelid status of other faces -low noise level for some time -sudden noise increase -human voice -voice being emotional or not (I mean what you register even without knowing a language, this can't be very complex) -hearing words with extreme or dull emotional connotation -registering vibrations -body position (standing, sitting, sitting laid back, lying flat) -extreme temperature and rapid temperature changes There is no necessity to perfectly measure an aspect (the measure just has to be better than deciding by coin flip) nor do you need to have something for all or even most aspects, summing together whatever of these silly tiny things you implement badly will make the overall effect more realistic and sophisticated than the parts.

>>17457 The uncanny valley video here >>10260 describes the differences in approaches well. There are two problems to solve: 1. How do you make something emotional? 2. How do you make emotions realistic? In any case, I wrote this up: https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1B6AedPTyACKvnlynKUNyA75XPkEvVAAp?usp=sharing I have two extremes on that page. In the first cell, emotions are described with text, and they can be arbitrarily precise. In the second cell, emotions are described by a few measures that can be added. There are different advantages to each. If there are a fixed number of emotions, text-based emotions would be low complexity, easy to specify, and easy to test. If there's a continuum of simple emotions, measure-based emotions would be low complexity, harder to specify, and easy to test. If there are complex emotions, text-based emotions would be high complexity, easy to specify, and hard to test. It might not matter which approach is taken to start with since it seems possible to hybridize the two approaches. "On a scale of [...] how well does this statement match your feelings on this [...] event?" As a result, it should be possible to start with one approach, then later get the benefits of the other approach.
>>17463 replikaAI does something similar with CakeChat (which has been linked in here via Luka's GitHub) >Training data >The model was trained on a preprocessed Twitter corpus with ~50 million dialogs (11Gb of text data). To clean up the corpus, we removed URLs, retweets and citations; mentions and hashtags that are not preceded by regular words or punctuation marks; messages that contain more than 30 tokens. >We used our emotions classifier to label each utterance with one of the following 5 emotions: "neutral", "joy", "anger", "sadness", "fear", and used these labels during training. To mark-up your own corpus with emotions you can use, for example, DeepMoji tool. >Unfortunately, due to Twitter's privacy policy, we are not allowed to provide our dataset. You can train a dialog model on any text conversational dataset available to you, a great overview of existing conversational datasets can be found here: https://breakend.github.io/DialogDatasets/ >The training data should be a txt file, where each line is a valid json object, representing a list of dialog utterances. Refer to our dummy train dataset to see the necessary file structure. Replace this dummy corpus with your data before training.
