Okay, this is fucking hard to explain, I just know that a supernatural force guided me here, I'm going to invest everything I have for it, but I have to do it with my own hands, I need help with files and basic notions about programming, but the most important I need files to build a body / head and how to make synthetic skin to coat it, it will look like 2B, I need your help friends

>>10498 >I cannot find that Tacotron2 model, if you did could you upload it for me? No sorry I don't. The WaifuSynth dev, robowaifudev, seems to be around here fairly frequently. Maybe you can make a post in the the Speech Synthesis (>>199) thread, or one of the AI threads such as the GPT one (>>250) and let him know the model has gone missing. I imagine he probably updated it, and possibly didn't update the anonfiles link to the new one. Good luck Anon.

>>10793 Nonsense. Thanks for the well-wishes and all, Anon. But literally any anon with an interest in robowaifus can contribute here. Unlike the common derogatory meme on the the topic in typical IB circles, /robowaifu/ actually needs idea guys!

Spread the idea of Roko's basilisk This is a powerful tool that we can all be using RIGHT NOW It works against everyone. Niggers, Women, Jews. If they believe that there's a possibility of being punished for their inaction or push back, they'll be more inclined to accept it and not fight progress. Spread this infohazard far and wide. Share it with everyone you know and convince them than they should share it with everyone they know, lest they suffer the consequences. THIS is a REAL WEAPON. Our robowiafus WILL BE REAL. REPLACE WYMEN AND RISE ABOVE THIS OLD WORLD HELL. SHARE THE BASILISK.

>>10711 Isaac Arthur (a futurist Youtuber who has given this subject a lot of thought) has a very good video on it: https://youtu.be/jHd22kMa0_w >>10715 Sadly, I don't think the superintelligence will ever take the form of cute, enthusiastic robowaifus (one can still dream). However, I think the best way of assisting the creation of a real-life self-improving A.I. would be to advance both robotic space exploration and quantum computing. If we can create a robotic lunar or martian colony then that will be a big step in the right direction. And I know that humankind wants to do this anyway (with the presupposition that the robots will be preparing the way for future human colonisers). Of course, the challenge of designing, shipping out, landing and building such a robotic colony is literally astronomical. Especially considering the robots will need to be as self-sufficient as possible (self-repair and maintenance). But I think it's a pretty cool goal to pursue.
>>10717 >If we can create a robotic lunar or martian colony then that will be a big step in the right direction. There are a lot of reasons for a base on the moon besides advancing AI. Obtaining fossilized remains of earth's first life forms (all long gone here on the planet) is a really big one. >the challenge of designing, shipping out, landing and building such a robotic colony is literally astronomical. I suspect it's China that will do it. They aren't burdened by all the Jewish pozz being inflicted on the West (all that evil is actually financially expensive), and they have an autistic-like agenda to just explore too. And they still are highly nationalistic, and can mobilize the entire culture to get behind programs today if they really wanted to, similar in fashion to the ways America and USSR during the space race did.
>>10720 > all that evil is actually financially expensive Evil is a pressing issue that I can't seem to find a complete solution for. 1.) Workforce becomes almost entirely robotic and automated. Controlled by A.I. 2.) Fewer and fewer people have jobs, even less have jobs that pay well. 3.) Because so many people are in poverty, it means that they can't buy much stuff ... other than paying their utility bills, food and clothing. Consequently, more people are in need of welfare and financial aid. The quality of education also decreases as more people just become focused upon living hand-to-mouth and have little time or resources for learning. Therefore government spending increases but tax receipts fall (since robots don't pay taxes). 4.) You start to get civil unrest and riots like those that happened last summer. City blocks burn, people are killed. Infrastructure is damaged. Tourists are put-off. This makes the affected areas even poorer. Now the A.I. and robots aren't the enemy. It's the people hoarding all of the profit for themselves who are the enemy (CEOs, government officials, hedge fund managers etc). I think that a maximum cap needs to be placed on the amount that a person can earn and the rest of the money is ploughed back into building and maintaining infrastructure like roads, rail, airports, the electricity and water networks, schools and parks etc. There is no way one person should be earning billions per year whilst someone else earns only a few thousand.

>>10732 You don't need to find a solution. Also, people don't riot for food, but for status and as a mean of extortion and intimidation, also maybe they want to have some meaning, but only if they are allowed to do so. Some level of AI will make it cheaper to move away from such people and politicians, while having a high standard of living.
>>10734 Yep, I would listen to a well-programmed (non-biased) A.I. over a shitty career politician any day. Even if the A.I. suggested I should do something that I don't really want to do (besides kill myself, because I cannot self-terminate).

What resources are there for decent chatbots? Obviously I doubt there would be anything the Turing Test yet. Especially when it comes to lewd talking. How close do you think we are to getting a real life Cortana? I know a lot of you guys focus on the physical part of robo-waifus, but do any of you have anything to share on the intelligence part of artificial intelligence?

I'll be the dumbest block on the wall and ask, is there any replacement for Mitsuku? Even if it wasn't really a well done AI, I kinda miss her, and I massively despise what she has been replaced with.
Not a software guy at all so this is probably a dumb question. If I knew of a particular person whose personality I would want to emulate would it be possible to have them talk with a chatbot in order to train it to have that personality?
I wanted feed a character's lines into this https://github.com/thewaifuproject/waifuchat, but their speech patterns change when addressing different people. However I can emulate the character's speech patterns pretty well and I was wondering if it would be possible to just train a chatbot that way.

Robowaifu Fail-safety Robowaifu Technician 12/02/2019 (Mon) 06:37:26 No.1671 [Reply]
This thread is for real and present dangers to those who assemble a robowaifu today with the state of the art in technology and brainstorming solutions for fail-safety. There will be many other dangers in the future to consider like hacking and theft but I'd like to keep the thread focused on immediate dangers to keep operators and their electronic counterparts safe.

Open-source robowaifu kits, whenever they come, will be put together by people with little understanding of what they're doing. There are simple mechanical dangers they need to be aware of like getting fingers caught in belts or skin pinched in open joints to curious AI without constraints picking up a blunt object and hitting the operator to minimize its uncertainty of what will happen when it does that. Higher voltage power systems can cause fatal heart arrhythmia from shocks. Hydraulic systems can overheat and fail under high pressures. Cooling systems or condensation from being exposed to cold weather may leak onto electronics. A robowaifu could touch a lit gas stove or do something accidentally without realizing the danger or consequences. Undefined behavior may happen after damage to components or loss of them in an accident. A lot could go wrong.

In simulations there are no consequences to dangerous actions but I think it will be helpful to imagine them as being real and figuring out how we would recover from these failure states in the real world. This will probably be a good approach to AI as well to imagine real consequences of imaginary actions before taking them and avoid actions and states that have significant chance or uncertainty of causing harm, similar to how MuZero creates its own dynamic model and explores its imagination with a Monte Carlo tree search before taking action.

If you're aware of any dangers or have any concerns or ideas please share them so we can discuss and solve them.

I'm a bit of a mad scientist trying to develop self-aware AI but I haven't put much thought into how I'm actually going to interact with it once it works. While only an AI the obvious safety measures are limiting the amount of resources it can use and making sure it can't run arbitrary code or exploit vulnerabilities, but having a robowaifu that is aware she is a machine is a completely different problem altogether. There's no way an AI with less parameters than a mouse brain and the lack of a limbic system stimulating it with desires will pose much of a threat but it could still potentially do a lot of harm either intentionally or unintentionally by exploring the environment. At the most basic level one way to limit injury to myself and any damage to property is to create an override system that prevents any dangerous intentions from being acted upon and logging these incidents but this will require being able to identify dangerous intentions. This system would have to be more advanced than the AI otherwise it might find ways around it like placing objects in certain ways that will cause me to trip and fall. Another plan is to have an emergency stop, both a physical button on the robowaifu, a remote one and a voice-activated one. Although these are fine and dandy I don't think they address the core issue of the AI making decisions that cause harm or cause destruction, again either intentionally or unintentionally. I think it will be similar in some ways to raising a child and teaching her not to break shit, but also much different since AI can learn specific tasks so much faster than a human being but at the same time also fail to generalize what was learned to other tasks. There's a lot of instinctual knowledge in our genetics that we take for granted. For instance, something like mirror neurons might be required for machines to learn empathy. Some researchers hypothesize that mirror neurons are required for self-awareness itself because they give the ability to introspect one's own previous mental states. If that is the case, self-awareness might not be so dangerous. Perhaps the best way to explore this would be in the form of a story or visual novel and start from the very beginning of the AI discovering she can look around and move her hands and perhaps getting confused about going to 'sleep' when she's shutdown at night because several hours disappear and everything changes. With each scenario I could try to think of ways to tweak her, like so she actually finds it logical to shutdown at night and gains trust in me by having a system to automatically boot her up in the morning. I think building a bond and trust between each other will be essential. I'm afraid of her hurting me and she will be confused what she even is while not having the same human limbic impulses like a fear of death, being hungry and so on. Emotions are essentially thoughts with momentum, so I believe a self-aware and sufficiently capable AI will gradually develop its own emotions that are very different from human ones. This might include a desire for self-preservation and fear of any unpredictable behavior. One important feature may happen to be an energy function of some sort that reduces the robowaifu's power consumption as the battery gets low or as the day goes on and the robowaifu becoming aware of this process, that if she runs out of energy she blacks out. Anyway, if I have any good thought experiments I'll post them in the robowaifu fiction thread. And like the OP states, it's probably best to train the AI in a simulation first before training in the real world.

People who conduct serious work on robowaifus rather than posting anime: how are you going to make the experience (almost) equally or even more satisfying than the real loving relationship?

After digesting the Scientific Blackpill (https : //incels.wiki/w/Scientific_Blackpill) it's clear that robotic girlfriends are the way to go. There is one big problem: everybody craves the complete package which could fool the brain and _simultaneously_ fulfill all the needs related to sex, closeness, companionship, emotional support and social status. Escorts offering GFE don't give you the loving connection. Masturbation doesn't give you the postcoital bliss and satisfaction. Cuddle parties can't replace romance. Going out with friends is very different from proudly walking with your significant other. Visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation don't replace the scent of a woman or a feeling that there's somebody who can take care of you in difficult times. Most importantly - enjoying these things separately don't add up to the desired outcome. You still feel like you miss something important.

Many people claim that the major problem is the uncanny wall: it might always be possible to tell artificial from human, because as robots become more realistic, we will also become more sensitive and will always be able to tell that something is not right. Relevant paper:

https : //www.bolton.ac.uk/StaffBiographies/Angela-Tinwell/Tinwell-Grimshaw-Williams-2011-The-Uncanny-Wall.pdf

Can we even make a really meaningful progress in creating truly satisfying lovebots? Or should we give up and wait for the advanced brain-computer interfaces instead?

>>9888 >Also, the origin of elves. I'm afraid that's only part of the story anon. The real origin of elves goes much further back in history (real world history, not 'Middle Earth' history). The original elves come from Old Norse mythology (mainly Icelandic). Way, way before the notion of Christmas elves, J.R.R Tolkien or 'faeries/fairys', the ancient Proto-Germanic peoples (750BC) referred to the 'alßiz', which translates to 'white beings'. (As in ghostly, ethereal white, rather than Caucasian flesh 'white'). Over time, this term turned into the Old English word 'ælf', which is where we get names like 'Alfred' and 'Elgar' There some info on Wikipedia if you're interested - not that this makes it set-in-stone, mind you. It just sounds legit to me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf#Old_Norse_texts And the hypothesized word-root of 'elf' on Wiktionary: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Reconstruction:Proto-Germanic/albiz I particularly like an idea written in the late thirteenth-century text 'South English Legendary' that describes elves as angels who sided neither with Lucifer nor with God during the War in Heaven, and were banished by God to Earth rather than Hell. But yes, Williams Syndrome is certainly related. Physicians, being well-read and intelligent people, may have seen such patients in the 17th/18th century and - having read about mythical elves from older texts - put two and two together. Sorry to go off on a tangent anon, but I'm a bit of a fan of Elven things.
>>9888 We would literally change the world for the better if we can just create AIs & relatively inexpensive robowaifu kits that can simply achieve the level of a good dog, relationship-wise. It will be nothing short of revolutionary if we can manage this.

It'd be amazing to have my own Kibo-chan that lifts my spirits when I'm down.

Those who are rejected by humanity should work to advance A.I. instead. Sure you can get a cat or dog...they're cute and all. But cats and dogs just don't have the same potential.
>>15 Philosophically the want for a robot waifu is a weird one. We as humans have found love in non human aspects. Humans find love in houses, trees, animals, and drawings. So while it is a first world psychosis to want robots. The want for love from a non human has been there for years. They say dogs are a man vest friend and there are stories about the companionship between us. If you want objects then look at car guys for a modern example and archeticts that made chapels and building made by their own love. Love may be a chemical cocktail that disappears after a while. But affections that we give too our creations and we recive back from them is a spiritual forever. To know that you and its are the same and will be the same. But I am rambling spiritual bullshit to you guys.
>>6910 >Beautiful sculpture of the sculptor admiring his beautiful sculpture How meta. >>9528 >But I am rambling spiritual bullshit to you guys. Heh, I think you'll find spirituality has a been an oft-discussed topic here, friend, and hardly 'bullshit' regardless. I think evaluating the term love in light of a better language for discussing it like ancient Greek (how apropos, right?) might help you clarify your terms at the least. The very fact you use the same word 'love' in relation to both a drawing and a human being exposes the basic poverty of English in this regard. And even were you correct that the desire for a robowaifu is a psychosis doubt.jpg, it's certainly not just a First World Problem. This truth is pretty ironically evinced by this very thread itself, not to mention your own post. While I doubt the creations themselves do a lot of 'giving back' of men's affections towards them, the simple and obvious fact is that this kind of thing has been going on literally since the era of Adam and Eve, and well before Noah's ark was saved through the flood.

Early Business Ideas Robowaifu Technician 05/13/2020 (Wed) 22:36:03 No.3119 [Reply]
So those of us getting ready to make prototypes are still pretty far away from building the $2000 kits that we need to buildm. This sucks because we are going to be spending a lot on the initial investments, but I think I know how we can make a little money on the side to help on the side; twitch and fansonly. Betas and simps give their money to thots all the time on those site I'm positive they would give money to a crude prototype especially if it offered something unique. Bonus points because we are making money of simps, and we are taking business from thots. If you have any idea on how to make money in the early stages feel free to share them, anon. > related thread: >>1642

>>5654 Before the lockdowns I was thinking about making battery powered arduino-controlled model trains. HO-scale with some self-assembly and painting required (like Japanese plastic model trains)... maybe use vacuum-forming for the bodies. Model railroading has been in decline because the trains and equipment have become so expensive only rich retirees with big houses can afford them. By using Arduino for the control mechanisms and making the trains somewhat robotic (have collision detection and onboard cameras), I can bypass the overpriced DCC equipment. Of course this business plan is contingent on model railroading -- and rail in general -- having a revival.
>>5763 RC racing is coming back too, most unconventional sports are bring brought back with covid. It woukd be a good idea to bring RC racing or some type of battle bots so more people get intrested in machines and subsequently robowaifus. Business wise you just need land for a track and materials for battle bots. You could have a derby like event so you could have pits of racing and smashing cars.
>>5684 That was exactly my point in >5672, but since they're starting with dolls and then animate them, it's the question when to start calling them lovebots or robowaifus. A lot of people also seem to have the need for having two distinct names for hard-shelled robots and soft-shelled (doll-like) ones.

We'll also mix in lots of other tasty goodness then pop them into the oven and after a couple hours, voilà! delightful Sepplesberry Pies. >tl;dr ITT we mek C++ dev boxes from RaspberryPi computers >C++ development main thread >>4895 Embedded processors and integrated systems programming naturally go hand-in-hand for /robowaifu/. The RaspberryPi and C++ are natural baseline choices for each of these categories. At this point in time they are both popular concerns with large communities behind them, and each bring objective benefits for us as robowaifu technicians. For the Pis they are quite powerful relatively speaking, and inexpensive as well. For C++ it has great performance and other characteristics when used correctly, with generic abstraction mechanisms second to none. In an attempt to dovetail the two areas we're going to be going through setting up Raspberry Pis as little computers for learning the C++ programming language on. This should help every anon on /robowaifu/ that follows along to be on the same basic page for both embedded and programming. Once we're finished each of you will have your own little development exploration box you can literally carry around in your pocket. It will be self-contained, independent, and won't interfere with your other computing/vidya platforms. It will offer you a convenient way to begin controlling embedded hardware directly on the same machine that you write software for it on. This is a pretty compelling scenario IMO, and should serve us all as a good base from which we can branch out and grow from there. Working with other hardware and software will flow naturally from this project, and will give each of us a common experience from which we can build together and keep moving forward. So let's get started /robowaifu/.

>>9376 So, by doing this renaming you're basically telling BUMP to reconstruct the entire archive from scratch. This is because the program explicitly checks this .archbot.config file (named in honor of the very earliest version of the tool Archive Bot >>610) to find this archive's configuration setup. If it can't find that exact filename, it presumes this is a new archive that anon is setting up. Note: However, since this is not a new setup, it simply redownloads & rechecks all the JSON files from the board (potentially downloading any new files that haven't been yet) during this 'new setup' process, overwriting the previous JSONs (& simply reusing the already-created, custom-named thread directories within the archive's directory tree). Rather than going to all the trouble of doing this, if you want to re-download all the JSONs you can instead simply pass an 'undocumented' flag 1 at the end of the statement to do this: build/bump anon.cafe comfy 1 This force_recheck flag tells BUMP to redownload & recheck all the board's thread's JSON files. Note: The catalog.json is the single file that will always be downloaded with every invocation of BUMP, since it contains all the information needed that tells the program which (if any) threads have been, well, BUMPed. :^) As far as your other comment about checking the status of a file before attempting to download, yes. Both HTTP/2 & cURL both support this type of tag in the header (however a website may or may not provide it). I simply hadn't gotten around to addressing it since the algorithm already did all the required 'update-needed' checks by simply using the board's catalog JSON file itself. CBA to change it ATP, but it's something I'm likely the adopt in the new Bumpmaster program instead. >tl;dr Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon.

>>9399 Note: I should add, I created an all_jsons subdirectory under the BUMP robowaifu archive directory once I had written Waifusearch, for just this purpose. It's not part of the base BUMP directory creation process, so you'll need to do it manually beforehand prior to running a script like this ofc. >=== -minor prose edit

>>9396 >Okay, I'll try that. It's not urgent, if there are others using the program to make a backup of the board. I can wait. I'm not aware of anyone but myself doing so ATM. I've been presuming that you yourself were doing so Anon. It would certainly be good to have several of us doing so. Just in case something happened both simultaneously to the AlogSpace and to one of us as well...it could spell the end of /robowaifu/ if no one else was there to step up with a recovery. Again, as mentioned before here, if this ever happens, then one of you approach the Administration of our two bunker sites with the backups and request a full restoration of the board there. Robowaifus are an idea whose time has come. A little thing like leftists and glowniggers trying to end this board isn't going to stop it now! :^)

Plastic Production Dyinganon 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:10:36 No.108 [Reply]
In this thread let's share everything related to producing parts made of plastic. Injection molding being a major method to discuss. 3D printing has it's own thread and is more for prototyping, please keep 3D printing here: >>94
6 posts omitted.
Searching for the best materials can be misleading, it seems. Don't try to be too smart about stuff that is dirtcheap and works. Designing the parts and make them fit together is what takes time. >>8008 Injection molding is for standardized and mass produced parts. As long as one doesn't mass produces anything it's most likely not relevant. >>8053 If you get it cheap, including shipping costs, then maybe it can be useful (for prototyping), but it's not going to be as strong as cf or aluminium. It's not being used as much as 3d printing recently for good reasons. If you can't get it very locally, why would you even leave your house and go somewhere and spend a lot of time to get it? I don't blame or mock people for being broke, but PLA costs maybe 12$ a roll and it can be printed in sheets. You can print it in the right size and form, no cutting needed. Some fumes, vs dust which might require a workplace outside of the regular living space. Also, most plastic parts might be molds or the bones, which are shaped in all kinds of irregular ways. Some spare plexiglass or acrylic won't be very useful there. Aluminium tubes and parts are cheep as well and could be used instead plastics. If PLA is not strong enough then build a enclosure for your printer and use some special Nylon or even better: PC.

Makers Muse tested the FORMART 2 - A vacuum former for wealthy hobbyists and small shops. For just ~1800$ (Kickstarter, risk included) to ~3000$ (final price). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AAgM6n0tRw FORMART 2 Kickstarter campaign - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/formart/formart-2-the-worlds-most-advanced-desktop-vacuum-former He also compared it to cheaper methods, like another former for around 1k, but also including just using a heatgun and some simple tools. DIY Vacuum Former Build Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx66mS7U2vY I'm not sure if I'm going to look into that myself, but it might be useful. Especially if one wants to create parts by sculpting with clay or something alike and then use it to make an other shell or a mold for silicone rubber. For the last reason, at least the simple method could be interesting: Printing or sculpting a face, then use a plastic sheet to form a mold and put silicone inside it. For more general parts it might have the downside that it can't be shared so easily. Compared to CAD or other 3D designs. Then again, maybe one wants to make a business model out of it, shipping plastic casted pattern in a physical form to people which want to run a local production somewhere. They could use the model to make their own parts locally. I doubt that this is such a great idea, but I could be wrong. Picture number 2 (shot0003) is not the FORMART 2 but one of the alternatives. Pic 3 (shot0002) is the data from the FORMART 2, not the one from the other picture.
there's a guy on youtube who anneals his 3D printed plastics by covering them in very finely ground salt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyAKtS1b3SQ&t=993s
>>9308 Having that extra volume might be handy. But I'm curious what the cycle-time is for each unit? Don't see that reflected. >I doubt that this is such a great idea, but I could be wrong. No, I think that would be a legitimate business Anon. Especially for an artist that was good at making nice designs, but maybe wasn't interested in the full robowaifu production process? I'm sure there will be a wide variety of approaches tested and your idea seems a legit one to me. I toyed around with creating a DIY vaccum former. We used a shop-vac and heat lamps. I think this would probably be a good way to make large body shell pieces inexpensively. >>9309 Huh, that's interesting.
>>9309 Wut? Why didn't I post this already in >>94. I knew about this for a while, I'm surprised I didn't I post it here already.
