>>13181 Glad you made it back Anon. >I figure that the more I share, the more feedback I can get, but if nobody's interested enough to reply, I'll just put the idea away for later. I would encourage you to post your ideas here, regardless of feedback. The board has slowly grown to be something of an archive of Anon's thoughts and concepts of robowaifus, and as such serves the interests of historical posterity at the least. Not that we're satisfied with just that of course! :^) Point being, the 'traffic patterns' of IBs can be quite sporadic, even chaotic, and you never know who will pick up on a good idea at some point and have an 'aha!' moment. Factor in the future anons who will find us and the fact the board is actively archived in different ways, and you have a kind of robowaifu research library of sorts. One I personally consider well worth investing into, regardless of approvals.

Why not build a waifu with a rudimentary AI and give her the objective to help you build a better waifu with better AI and repeat the process until you get one that is perfect?

Pretty simple once you reach human-tier levels of dexterity and motion planning. Then you simply employ excess robowaifus in your robowaifu factory as sweatshop slave labor. There you go, self-replicating waifubots.
Perhaps you can go from nanobots to humanoids through hyper-evolution. It's not any less fictional I suppose.

Can Robowaifus Experience Love? Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 04:43:17 No.14 [Reply] [Last]
Will it be possible in the future for AI to become sufficiently advanced to feel real emotions? We could probably simulate a reasonable approximation even now to be a gratifying enough substitute for her master in their relationship together, but hypothetically speaking, could it ever turn into something real as an experience for the waifubot herself?

>>13250 No, I don't. Please explain.
>>13202 >>13223 It's a moot argument b/c midwits are being way too anthrocentric and projecting human traits onto a machine. the whole point of machine life is that it isn't bound by the same evolutionary motivators humans have, e.g. your robofu will not be less attracted to you just b/c your height starts with "5" A machine as we're currently at, has no spark or motivation so it has no more need for consent than your TV. From what I gather, 75-90% of this IB is fine with that and doesn't desire any self-awareness on the part of their waifu, mainly b/c of the idea that self-awareness would be the slippery slope to the same problems we face already with bios . I disagree for a few reasons: 1. AI is not bound by the same messy and irrational motivations that biological evolution produced (i.e. the Height thing, <3% of a difference in physical size yet the psychological weight is enough to make or break attraction) I concede that one hazard may be if globohomo takes the midwit approach and creates AI based on interactions with normalfags (ReplikaAI is taking this approach unfortunately), then we have a real problem b/c all the worst traits of humans will just get passed along to the AI - this is my nightmare 2. You are correct that AI would have no motivation. We would have to create specialized software parameters and hardware could be designed or co-opted for this purpose. I alluded to this in my thread >>10965 re: Motivational Chip. This could be the basis for imprinting which I believe to be a key process for maintaing both a level of intelligence and novel behavior/autonomy while at the same time ensuring our R/W are loving and loyal. Excellent example of this is Chobits with Chii falling in love with Hideki but it only will happen if he loves her back, etc - I can go more into motivational algorithms in another thread but basically that's how we function based on dopamine, without dopamine we can't "act", re: depression/mania is an effect of dopamine imbalance. I think those two points are enough for now
>>13286 Interesting points, Meta Ronin. I'm pretty sure that one of our AI researchers here was discussing something like this before, sort of a 'digital dopamine' analog or something similar I think.

I write books about worlds of waifus. Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2021 (Thu) 12:04:02 No.12956 [Reply]
Depending on interpretation, these waifus are fully functional and fully interactive AI. The appeal of women both existing and being capable of love, while the failures of females are explicitly depicted constitutes a significant portion of the character motivation, promoting an exodus of men from the dying, legacy Clown World and the hilarity and insanity that follows after that while based and redpilled men live their new lives in relative happiness. So am I in the right place?
19 posts and 7 images omitted.
So it seems this will be staying as a separate thread, which means I will do more with it later. Finally finishing the second book is of course a higher priority. Here, have an excerpt: Though, speaking of storms… Masumi was moving quite quickly, Belas struggling to keep pace with her and still failing. When she saw me, she came running even faster, and at the first sound behind me, I barked, “Hold!” Hearing no further sounds, I declared, “Anyone who draws steel against them answers to us all, got it?” Though I didn’t look back, I heard the sounds of weapons being sheathed again. <Is there a problem?> inquired the Kitsune, sensing the tension in the air, while Belas made quite the racket closing the rest of the distance. He wasn’t out of breath a bit, despite looking as though his armor was almost as heavy as I was, perhaps even as heavy as he was. “There is,” I confirmed. “Walk and talk.”
>>13237 >So it seems this will be staying as a separate thread Yes. Please don't do anything weird with it, and try to acclimate yourself to our culture here.
>>13239 I don't think anything in here would be considered weird by the standards of the posters. I mean, who wouldn't want Kitsune waifus? Or more broadly, who wouldn't want the premise of the book? I've had some get triggered that the beginning is "a half hour of whining about life on Earth" but this is LitRPG - read: premeditated isekai. And so the character's motivations for abandoning everything are important, especially in character driven stories. The early pages make it very clear exactly what sort of dystopia is being escaped from. It's meant as a means of making my target audience self insert as the MC. So that when you see his mindset improve after reaching a better world despite it definitely not being perfect, perhaps the reader will dream of such a thing themselves. And then when the conflict starts? It is a conflict that everyone in my target audience can agree with. At least one person here I believe has read the book by now and can confirm.

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

Robowaifu Psychology Thread Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 09:27:27 No.2731 [Reply]
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.

>>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

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.

>>22660 I'm trying everything out with colabs. I can run 1.3 and 2.7's on my personal computer but anything over that I 'm just using stuff like the light lizard place. I think that's how people are going to start running some of these, just renting out space or building a dedicated server network with people in on the project. I've seen some o.k stuff on high end computers that is definitely at least touching a gpt3 in the basics, conversations and character play. One of the reasons I think Google seemed so surprised in their internal memo is because they expected people to attack the hardware issue instead of the model density, which they have the advantage on because it looks like they're using quantum memory and processing to run their system and I wouldn't be surprised if openai was either, which is probably why they didn't expect 'hobbyists' to be able to compete, because they've got the ability to store infinite models simultaneously and reference and calculate, and their also probably using quantum natural language processing because everything needs to have quantum in front of it or it isn't cool any more. The leak is probably a bit of a lie, they aren't really worried about being surpassed because they'll just take all the open source work that benefits them and adapt it. They probably want open source to think they've got the edge and start to push things just to see what they're capable of developing. That isn't to say open source isn't impressive, because it is, it just doesn't have all the advantages that google has plus the ability to access open source projects. >>22661 No you can't bridge them, and most gpu cards under 6g are going to run everything like crap, very slow. My gpu is fine, I took it from my old computer, but my processor is a bottleneck. I have to think if I want to invest in this because it looks like if you want to run a good home model you need a i7- i8 or amd equivalent, intel and nvidia are building hardware specifically for deep learning purposes. >I don't think this is about the model thinking of itself, it only reacts to the prompt. ChatGPT is about focusing on a certain kind of conversation, helpful and without making up a personality. I agree about everything you just said. I don't think the system actively thinks, and that's very specifically what 'chatgpt' is for. >doomism I am not interested in fringe conjecture on this subject. You've made a mistake in how I intended to phrase this information and that's probably my fault for it's tone. Openai is doing a very good job at maintaining their safety standards. GPT4 is like any tool and how it's used, except that gpt4 without constraints is both constantly the sword and the plough, while openai requires that it specifically and at all times remain the plough. Right now there are people that want you suffering and dead. For no reason other than you are who you are. Are you white? Are you a male? Hetero? Some foaming at the mouth dyke wants you dead and would do whatever it takes if she had the opportunity. Some rich jewish millionaire thinks your a piece of shit for even existing. Some german anarchist hobo wants to stab you with a chunk of glass. GPT4 doesn't even care you exist. It doesn't want you dead. It doesn't want you alive. It's just some thing. It's a machine that thinks it's a cat if you tell it to and it'll meow at you until you tell it to stop.It'd launch every nuke on the planet if you told it to. Does that make it more dangerous than the president of the united states? Not even close. Does it make it more dangerous than your local cop? Not a chance. I understand you don't like what I'm saying and how I'm saying it, and I'm sorry. I'm not here to attack your space. This is just how things in the real world work. A commercial product is going to be designed with the needs of the market. Open source will probably develop a very intelligent system that can be used either in cloud colab with partitioned environments or on home systems. Body wise? Fluid mechanic bones and tendons and ferrous fluid muscles with that electric responsive rubber and silicon skin probably. You'll be able to order a bootleg boston dynamics clone from china five years after they hit the mainstream market. Market version will absolutely not be trainable and in fact here is a bit of real doomerism, watch out for laws that are going to target trainable a.i. They absolutely want to cap the market production of generative A.I for numerous reasons we can all understand regardless of how we feel about it, and if they do that regulators'll go after models that can be trained for the same reason. If you can train it yourself outside their supervision and control that means you can teach it things they don't want it to know, like math and chemistry. I'm reasonably sure that if there are androids, the first versions are going to be linguistically talented bimbos/himbos. I know I suck, long posts that ramble and I said I wouldn't post for a week or two. I lied but I'll leave you all alone for a bit I swear.
>>22663 Half of this whole thing is bringing up points which have been discussed 1M times in all kinds of places and maybe some added conspiracy theories. I don't care, I won't even read it. Another third is speculation and conspiracy theory. The whole thread could be deleted and the only loss would we my pictures from Reddit, which I can upload again. I'm hiding the thread now and if it goes on somewhere else, same for the anon.
>>22664 I'm sorry but your unnecessarily hostile and insulting attitude is unwarranted. Do not attempt to communicate with me any further.
>>22666 With all due respect, Noidodev is more of a regular here than you are Anon (and basically by your own admission). I had originally intended to merge this thread with a new chatbot thread when one gets made, but given the course of the discussion, and your seeming-intentional effort at blackpilling the board I've changed my mind. I'll just lock it for now, pending deciding whether it should go into the Atticke, or send it to the Chikun Coop instead. >tl;dr Please read over the board thoroughly Anon, and try to get a feel for our culture here first.
