What are the best sounding female robotic voices available? I want something that doesn't kill the boner, I think Siri has an okay voice, but I'm not sure if that would be available for my project

>>1239 >>1240 Not a local, but I'm wondering if a current tool like MycroftAI (the virtual assistant) can currently pipe it's output text through the fifteenAI API to make a character voice. I haven't used fifteenai or Mycroft yet, but I suspect you could make a half-decent Twilight home assistant now with a RaspPi and a plushie.
>>9092 >but I suspect you could make a half-decent Twilight home assistant now with a RaspPi and a plushie. I suspect you can now, yes. And with the further info here on /robowaifu/ she could even move at least a bit. Just search around in the Speech Synthesis general bread >>199 and you could get some ideas.
>>1246 BTW Anon, just in case you're not RobowaifuDev, I wanted to let you know that he actually did it (your idea that is, >>9121). Just in case you missed it.

I was thinking of using something like FastPitch, but with an added effect to make it sound more robotic to keep it from getting to an uncanny valley sound. Either that or making the voice kinda high pitched and childlike, to make it easier to accept when it says something stupid. Has anyone here considered hardware-based speech synthesis so it'll actually sync up with mouth movements? Everything professional I've seen just seem like horrid screaming fleshlights that never really try to resemble actual heads.
>>13164 >Has anyone here considered hardware-based speech synthesis so it'll actually sync up with mouth movements? Voice modulation, but not complete synthesis. But I don't know how yet. Your picrel is what I knew about, I posted some related video before. However, I was thinking about small internal speakers (mini maze speakers?) but with additional silicone parts that could move and change the voice that way. But nothing specific yet

I hope to have useful links and images in the future, this is just a quickly thrown together glorified character sheet maker at this point. Ok so you can program, but HOW to make her thoughts work? At least on a creative level. I don't have much to contribute other than my rather obsessive what-ifs, I hope this is useful somehow. A few questions you might want to ask yourself before typing up some kind of bio or writing down conversations and quotes you imagine she would say are... 1. How close to the canon do I want to be? 2. How much canon is there? 3. How would I want to make her mine vs someone else's interpretation of the same character? Take note of those answers, if your memory sucks record them in a method you are comfortable with. I think typing might be faster for most. And you might want to revisit what you wrote here sometimes when making certain personality design choices. Use your answers here as a basic guide. For the most part, just go through writer's sites for character questionnaires. And before you omit a question, think of how could you use the basics of what it is asking to build your waifu's personality? For example, if a question rubs you off the wrong way politically, still use that question. But answer in your own way or even reword the question. Some of these types of questions are supposed to make you think hard about what shaped your character's dislikes, which is still important to what makes a person themselves. You may need to revisit some of these or even omit certain ones entirely. But try to figure out how to get that info in somehow later. This process can take a long time and be frustrating, but I think it has a place in the waifubot creation experience. Also, try think how would your waifu react if the story went differently at some point. This can get really dramatic real easy, but it doesn't have to. Just start with simple things like what would she say if asked to tell a joke? What does she find funny? What does she find cringey? Things like that, and don't be afraid to make what they call a 'brain dump'. Pretty much just type with minimal breaks and type everything that comes to your mind about the topic. You might get some useful info amongst the 'why am I doing this?' 'I need to take a shit' quotes. Also just use some of those story prompts. Also, try to use the more realistic day to day ones, like things that could happen in real life. Less exciting but pretty sure you aren't going on fantasy journeys with her IRL. Using these types of prompts will give her more to say on mundane everyday things, vs Skyrim politics. (But that could be fun sometimes)

>write, write, write OP, I'm way too lazy for that. There are some very common personality tests, like Myers-Briggs. Why not use them backwards: Look around for some fora where users explicitly state specific results like personalitycafe.com and typologycentral.com and check if you can get enough reference text for the various types such a test supposedly identifies. (My impression with MB is that the introvert-extrovert distinction is very important and reliable, the other stuff is eh.) If there is enough reference material, the diagnosis labels can become options in a character creator.
>>7868 That's a great idea for a source, though I don't know yet how to get the behavior into code. Do you want to train a NN on it?
I once saw a few interesting interviews with Hubert Dreyfus, a Californian professor on psychology. He once became well known for warning that the approach to AI in the 60s would lead to nothing. The interviews are on Youtube. I reference some related material her, which I once downloaded and looked into. I had to use Catbox, since this site here doesn't allow textfiles... https://files.catbox.moe/7wxhy3.txt .. l also made some notes, but won't upload them today. The linked file contains magnet links to download, you could find them on your own on any torrent site. Use a VPN or so to hide your IP if that's important to you. It's just educational material and a bit older, so it shouldn't be a problem. It's about Existentialism, and might be important to create some human-like mind. Though it might also not be very urgent to know about that stuff, since it might only matter in some time. However, maybe someone has the time and wish to look into it: >Heidegger: A Starting - Survival Kit (Books, EN, ~300MB) >Martin Heidegger: Audio (in German), Speeches, Biography, ... (500 MB) >No Excuses: Existentialism and the Meaning of Life (Video lectures, EN, 4.5GB) >Hubert Dreyfus' Lectures on Heidegger's Being and Time (500 MB, Audio lectures, EN, partially bad quality) The "No Excuses" video lessons might be the best to start, or to only get an overview what this is about. This series is about different philosophers and authors, the rest is mainly about Heidegger's work, but not only. It also makes sense to look into the interviews with Hubert Dreyfus, for a start or a peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUZUbYCBtGI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHJQ3IjQfKI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CHgt2Szk-I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR1TJERFzp0 There's alot more... >>7868 >>7869 This thread >>18 is related, bc it's about personality. We have two different threads for that, lol, I mean one for personality and one for psychology. Now, who's explaining the difference? Let me try: Psychology is more general, the types of personalities (if they exist) are more of a distinction between different individuals. >>7865

>>7874 Anon I'm creating areas for generally problematic postings as a way to protect the health and welfare of the board in general. I'm calling this the subterranean club b/c they are located inside bumplocked threads. Allow me to repeat a quote I previously made, again here: >>7477 >...But if I feel a direct attack is being levied against the motivation and psychological state of our board's members then I'll will oppose that with vigor -- as well I should. The Sky is Falling will be for things we arbitrarily consider first and foremost about engendering blackpilling, discouragement, dejection, depression, demotivation, fear, panic, and other such harmful things. The Humanist philosophy of Existentialism fits squarely into this category IMO, and has little to do with a robowaifu's 'psychology' as well. Feel free to continue posting this type of thing here on /robowaifu/ as you see fit, but by the same token don't be surprised or offended if they get rearranged elsewhere. Your existentialism philosophy postings will be moved there along with many other types of posts by other users (including a few of my own rather misguided ones). Feel free to debate the pros and cons of such a decision afterwards either there or in the /meta. >=== -prose edit

I don't know shit about psychology and even less about coding, but here's what I want from an AI: 1: A basic chatbot. 2: Text to speech and voice recognition / natural language processing. 3: Some way for the AI to move the hardware I hook up to it, even if it has to learn how to do it. 4: Camera facial recognition to identify me despite a gradual change in my appearance from shit like beard growth and aging. 5: Voice stress and facial expression recognition so it can determine how I feel. That last part is everything that it needs for feedback. If it's totally obedient to my commands and can gauge my emotions, then it's primary goal is to learn how to adjust everything it does to maximize my perceived happiness and minimize my sadness, anger, fear, disgust, and such. No complex personality model is needed if the AI is smart enough. Once all that is established, the personality would simply mold itself to me over time, and hopefully understand that my preferences will probably also slowly change. With some Eulerian Video Magnification so it can spot the slightest change in my facial expressions and even monitor my heart rate by looking at me. Add body language to that and it shouldn't take long to realize what I want when I've got a boner. If you've never heard of Eulerian Video Magnification, it's pretty neat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONZcjs1Pjmk

Before you shoot it down: - obviously helps spread the idea - could reframe perception of R/W enthusiasts if we can put up a relatable "face" and diffuse the bitter/angry/incel stereotype - maybe come up with new ideas that we wouldn't just posting on IBs - again makes the topic interesting and we can start forming perception before popular culture gets traction with this and throws us under the bus (which is probably guaranteed but we can take some air out of their criticisms preemptively) other reasons, but these are the main ones. i have some experience podcasting, I know how to use OBS and have a quality mic and graphic skills to market and promote it (in the right places of course) Would this ever be something any of you (esp Board Owner and heavyweights) would consider participating in? Could be a once a week or twice a month deal, part time co-host or recurring guest is what I'm looking for. If there's interest I'll move ahead with a pilot.

I just had the problem listening to podcasts with bad audio quality twice. If someone does make a podcast, just make sure you only allow guests with good audio quality via connection. Them recording their own audio track as a backup would also be great. Calling in via telephone is out of question. I don't know the best feasible alternative, maybe something like mumble? Studio Link would be ideal for regular guests: https://youtu.be/nDuCgK41kE8 - but they seem to be still focused on German market.
>>13122 I've always done it in a discord VM channel and streaming via OBS, that way their icon lights up when theyre speaking. Anyone unwilling to get on Doxxcord, we could just try something else if it were that big of a problem. I've streamed in the past to my youtube channel and then share the link other places, bitchute or dlive are always options especially if there are concerns that the topics of conversation might not conform to YT's ToS but I've never been warned and we've talked about just about everything.
>>13127 >we could just try something else if it were that big of a problem. Kek. Yeah I'd say that submitting any & everything about your personal thoughts, words, & deeds directly into the heart of the Beast is 'a problem'. The Globohomo Big Tech/Gov isn't your friend, friend.
>>13127 >discord VM channel and streaming via OBS And that replaces the need for good microphones and a good internet connection?
>>13149 >>13134 >Kek. Yeah I'd say that submitting any & everything about your personal thoughts, words, & deeds directly into the heart of the Beast doubtful I'd use this handle or even call it R/W at this point. I think the podcast would really be a discussion of philosophy, theories, speculation, ideas and news topical to our interests. it would NOT be discussions about this IB, names of anyone in this IB, or anything specific to this IB except under very extenuating circumstances. As if G/H is even bothering to scan the VC of all however many thousand Discord servers. >And that replaces the need for good microphones and a good internet connection? I have a good microphone and total control over my audio levels. Whatever a guest has, I guess is going to be hit or miss, but as I said I've never had an issue even with someone using their phone but that's the purpose of a pilot podcast, to test things and see how they happen in practice. Either way, I'm moving forward on this, I'm considering DLive b/c youtube gets too much attention (of the wrong sort). Alternatives to Discord VC are 3rd party apps like Skype which come with their own problems but the audio coming in can be mixed with the volume from my mic through OBS, however if I have more than one person on the call that gets trickier. Either way the only way to really know is to try and that's what I plan on. My target is before the end of October.

Actuators for waifu movement! Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:27:47 No.406 [Reply] [Last]
Hello fellow Anons! Kiwi here to provide basic educational facts about various actuators we can use for gifting artificial avatars of our hearts desire motion!

1. Let's start with a personal favorite, the impractical, inefficient yet oh so fascinating: Heated Twisted Nylon!

What are they? They're nylon threads which have been spun around then annealed to seal in their coils. A heating method causes these threads to then contract or expand.

Good: Why is this a personal favorite? Simply put, it's natures muscle substitute for muscles. To elaborate, this marvelous invention contracts like human muscles, has a similar practical strength/weight/volume as human muscle. Icing on this proverbial cake comes in its incredibly low cost of manufacture. Materials needed are nylon threads and a heating element. A fixture for production can be produced simply, operated with incredible ease, all while having a low cost. It very well could have revolutionized all of robotics if it weren't for its flaws.

Bad: This is honestly a terrible actuator. Its greatest flaw comes from its speed. they aren't as fast as human muscles unless they're underwater. Water reduces efficiency to unacceptable levels if they're powered by batteries. Water is also rather heavy. If used, you'd have a waifu that moved slowly , would seize up in hot weather, and her battery would die rather quickly. Final nail in the coffin: it's very difficult to get positional control.

2: Pneumatics, moving her booty with air!
What is it? Pressurized air is guided to an actuator where its energy turns into motion. Popular air actuators include rotary turbines, cylinders, and air muscles.

Good: Actuators are light for their power. Positional control isn't difficult to attain. They can be faster then human muscles. Heating elements can be used to augment performance to higher levels.

Bad: These things require electrical actuators to function properly. Thus, they're inherently more complex then electrical counterparts. They need a source of compressed air, either from a tank or a compressor and a tank. Compressors are large, heavy, noisy, all around unsuitable to be incorporated into a waifu. Air tanks would also run out rapidly unless she's barely moving. Overall, they're suited better for industrial use.

3. Hydraulics, they're like pneumatics except stronger, needs a return system, needs an onboard pump, gets hotter, generally costs more, and is heavier.
(2 and 3 are great for stationary machinery which requires high power as they're very cost effective as high power actuators)

4. AC motors
What are they? They're rotary devices which use AC current to create magnetic flux used to provide torque.

Good: Generally highly efficient with good thermal characteristics. Can have controllable speed and torque.

Bad: They run off of AC electricity, batteries don't provide that. It's not difficult to change DC to AC but, it's a layer of extra cost and complexity. Overall they're great but the next actuator is better suited for our purpose.

5: DC motors are the ideal actuator for smaller waifus.
What are they? They're actuators which convert DC electricity into rotary mechanical energy.

Good: They're inexpensive, easily attainable, and simple to control. They're very easy to control. Uses DC which batteries provide.

Bad: Need to be geared down to provide good torque. They're middle of the road efficiency wise.

(For smaller waifus, their lower efficiency compared to the next actuator isn't a major concern. Smaller batteries recharge rapidly, so having her need to charge in her bed isn't a big deal.)

6. Superior Brushless Motors are ideal actuators
What are they? DC motors which need specialty hardware to drive them.

Good: High efficiency, it's the most efficient option available.

Bad: Controllers add expense and complexity.

I did use some verebage incorrectly. I should have said you punch out parts then stamp them to add form. Here's a link that explains this. http://austgen.vn/blogs/what-is-metal-stamping
Here's some more. If you look at any type can that has some sort of from on it this is how it's made. They punch out the metal then use a press to form it into shape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNxLaEZwH-o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmAyep2V-Cw

If so, then I think a new thread would probably be in line with at least a slightly more technical OP text outlining the project's goals a little better. I'd suggest using the MaidCom or Pandora thread's OPs as a minimum style guide. Also, be aware that 'loli' while a fun term to bandy in jest, can actually turn into a serious legality issue for Anons following along with your project in the current anti-pedo hysteria, politically-"""correct""" climate.

>>12512 >The layers should be along the direction where the most force is applied Interesting. Mind providing a sketch or image that clarifies this a bit for everyone anon? 'Along the direction' isn't perfectly clear to me yet. Does that mean 'build up layers in opposition to the line of force' (so, probably the word I'd choose would be orthogonally to). Or does it mean 'align the seams of the layers along the line of force' (again, the word I'd choose would probably be tangentially to)? BTW, would you mind also explaining the engineering rationale behind the recommended choice, whichever it is? TIA.

>>12576 Had a bit of a brainstorming session. I think kit along the lines of image attached would allow me to produce a warm water heating loop for my doll/robowaifu. Basically need to pump in 4-5 litres of hot tap water from a bucket or other container into the storage heater tank (could also just pour it in via a funnel). This then further heats and holds the water at a steady 45 degrees celsius before being pumped via solenoid through a flexible piping system that runs along the limbs and body of my robowaifu. The pipe(s) could then run back to the original input bucket/container of hot tap water and the process repeats in a loop. I already know how to do articulated limbs. Next I need to make limbs that are both flexible/posable and warm to the touch.
>>12572 Sorry for the lacking explanation and late answer. It can be explained rather simple: An arm is longer then wide, also the force of lifting something should be dispensed through the whole length. So don't print it standing and also make the printhead move along the length of the arm while printing. Don't know how to call that, only had an "E" in maths and this was long time ago. There are plenty of videos on print orientation available on YouTube. We also have a section here >>94 where this certainly came up at least once. >>12577 Thats excellent.

I found this project and it looks interesting. Robots wives appeal to me because i'm convinced human woman and humans in general have flaws that make having close relationships with them a waste of energy. I'm a pathetic freshman engineering student who knows barely anything about anything. Honestly, I think current technology isn't at a place that could produce satisfying results for me at least. I'd like something better than an actual person, not a compromise. Even then the technology is there, I have my doubts it'll be affordable to make on your own. Fingers crossed though. Anyway, what kind of behavior would you like from your robot wife? I'd like mine to be unemotional, lacking in empathy, stoic and disinterested in personal gain or other people. I think human woman would be improved if they were like that. Sorry if this thread is inappropriate.

>>12327 me and my army of waifus would make a great video game plot btw
I mean I understand the danger of putting your consciousness inside a computer or machine, the possibility that a bad actor could just leave you in a permanent state of torment, but that's our paranoid brains working out the worst possible situation. Its reasonable to assume we'd have numerous safeguards and failsafes against such a thing happening and while I'm personally against retreating into "virtual worlds" - if given a choice between aging and dying and having a way to instead slowly replace or augment myself, I would. But I wouldn't do that while I was still young or reasonably healthy, I would try to keep that as long as possible (and that's just a personal preference). Age and life extension are important because of how much wisdom is lost due to our short lifespans we spend too large a % in a tempermental and immature state and that's why we don't get very far civilizationally. If we could fix that, it would be a huge leg up toward a post Kardishev destiny
and of course this relates too to how much time and energy are wasted on the pursuit of foids which could also be put toward that end if R/W of a benchmark quality were readily available as companions

Any chatbot creation step by step guide? Robowaifu Technician 07/17/2021 (Sat) 05:29:42 No.11538 [Reply]
So recently on /tech/ I expressed my interest to start creating my own waifu/partner chatbot(with voice and animated avatar) but wondered whether that is even possible now that I'm stuck with webdev. So one of the anons there pointed to me this board and where I can get started on nueral networks and achieving my dream. And when I came here and looked up the library/guide thread I sort of got very confused because it feels more like a general catalogue than an actual guide. Sometimes things are too advanced for me(like the chatbot thread which two replies in and people are already discussing topics too advanced for me like seq2seq and something else) or other times too basic for me(like basic ANN training which I had already done before and worse the basic programming threads). I know this might feel like asking to be spoonfed but best with me, I've been stuck in a webdev job for an year, so I might not be the smartest fag out there to figure it all myself. >=== -edit subject

As far as knowing about robotics, I think that's mostly a matter of just diving into a project and begin learning. One of the things I appreciated most about the Elfdroid Sophie project was watching SophieDev learn things and adapt to issues and design improvements as he went along. Entertaining and educational. But anyway, good luck with your chatbot/waifu projects Anon. I wish you well in them.

A large amount of this board seems dedicated to hardware, what about the software end of the design spectrum, are there any good enough AI to use?

The only ones I know about offhand are TeaseAi and Personality Forge.

Does anyone have any resources on how the software integration would work? I.e., say you solve the vision piece so that waifubot can identify you as "husbandu," and you have the chatbot software so that you can talk to your waifu about whether NGE is a 2deep4u anime--how do you connect the two? How do you make it so that waifu realizes you, and says, "Hi, how's it going?"
>>12067 Is this one more of the many theoretical questions here? When building something, solutions for such problems will present themselves. Why theorize about it? And to what extend? Or short answer: Conditionals. Like "if".
>>12069 >Is this one more of the many theoretical questions here? No. Allow me to get more specific. I have an OpenCV based code that can identify stuff (acutally, I just got that OakD thing ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/opencv/opencv-ai-kit ) and ran through the tutorials), and I have a really rudimentary chatbot software. When I've been trying to think through how to integrate the two, I get confused. For example, I could pipe the output of the OakD identification as chat into the chatbot subroutine, but then it will respond to _every_ stimulus or respond to visual stimulus in ways that really don't make sense.
>>12067 In my experience the simplest way to think about it is like a database. You give the database a query and it gives a response. That query could be text, video, audio, pose data or anything really and the same for the response. You just need data to train it on for what responses to give given certain queries. There was a post recently on multimodal learning with an existing transformer language model: >>11731 >>12079 With this for example you could output data from your OpenCV code and create an encoder that projects that data into the embedding space of the transformer model.
>>12086 Exactly what my brain needed. Thanks anon.
