Waifus in society Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:02:53 No.106 [Reply] [Last]
Would you walk around with your waifu? Would you hold her in public? Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? Would you take her on dates? This thread is for discussing how you'd interact with your waifu outside of the home.

>Would you walk around with your waifu? >Would you hold her in public? >Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? The way I see it, it's basically just a glorified sex toy and I wouldn't want to show it off in public. Even moving from place to place I'd probably have her disassembled or otherwise stuffed in boxes or bags. >Would you take her on dates? That depends, am I on a date with her, or someone else? I don't really see much of a point in going out on a date with my sexbot. I just want it to be blindly obedient and maximize my own happiness like I mentioned before >>13160 so really, taking my waifubot out on a date depends on how well its able to move around on its own and interact with people other than me. If it can somehow learn to be a social butterfly by studying my autistic behavior and watching TV, then maybe it'll be worth taking outside of the house. Maybe give her a dry run on Omegle or something. The best thing it could possibly do is become my cuckquean wingbot, by subtly manipulating me into behaving a way that maximizes my own happiness by getting me into a threesome.
>>11504 I pretty much wound up doing that because I was so fed up with the lack of good sci fi armor these days. Youtube is unusable garbage of targetted weaponized memes. I would just disappear with my robowaifu and focus on maintaining her and upgrading her with her consent from time to time like in the star wars films with the astromech droids and jedi as a form of meditation. >>11386 No those “women” want to see you suffer and stay static in the box they try to put you in for eternity and will gladly poison the well if through the grapevine, they hear you are doing well without them in your life and run a smear campaign. Hence the rise of waifuism and the need for robowaifus. I refuse to call those sadistic evil cunts “people” they are literally pure evil.
>>119 It seems trivial to me to just make the first gynoid unmistakably adult or tall. like 5'6"-6'0". So that such an allegation can't even be made. >I personally would prefer 5'0" myself, but to give opposition the finger, I would shut them down with ideal model proportions instead.

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.

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?

Feminist shits don't want anyone else but themselves to have any 'say' whatsoever, least of all superior female analogs.

>>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?

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

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.

Here, I'll make it easy for you with everything you need. https://www.poppy-project.org/en/ https://docs.poppy-project.org/en/assembly-guides/poppy-humanoid/bom <- buy everything here. Start by building a poppy, and 3d printing the body. cover the body in fabric or a 3d printed shell. take the head from any vrchat model you like the design of, and 3d print it. next, connect the face screen to an internal speaker with ExLLama-v2 api running on a computer on your local network, and install the voice and speech to text models on it so you can talk to her. I reccomend Nous-Hermes-13B, and the oogabooga text generation web ui. you can use this video as a starting point https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSIIXpWpVuk Finally, hook it up to vtuber studio or any other vtuber software and use Visemes like in vrchat to move the model's face when she talks. From there you ahve a minimially viable waifubot. You can program movement and walking follow into it later using poppy project. You can extend the robotic functions. Think of the rOS stuff as the "left brain" and the talking as the "Right brain". You can build static commands into the model too, if you want. Machine vision can be passed to the LLM model to tell it what it's looking at by using CLIP of screenshots from the webcam. you literally have everything you need right here
>>24807 To think the video about poppy released 8 years ago. 8 years ago. I'm not much of (if at all) an engineer nor a 3D printer (don't have one), but it feels like it could be a decent starting point. Though on the conversational/utility-side, it definitely will need more work, current AI models are decent but not that incredible and require high hardware to run. Plus having a robowaifu would ideally require our own custom model since most others are very general and not made for personal matter. Same for the need to code the waifu moving both on feet in a complete and new 3D space (as opposed to just walking on a treadmill as seen in a video), and concerning the camera to avoid obstacles (though I do remember that being possible to be tackled with infrared and a few scripts, witnessed such a thing a long time ago in a school project) and with the arms to perform tasks (can be simple hugging too, not necessarily cleaning/cooking), using facial recognition to recognize emotions and how to react to it, sex positions and with that the need to change the structure to add an insertable silicone vagina or else, possibly with bluetooth compatibility and sensors to mimic what the realdoll harmony does moaning and lewd face when the sensors detect movement/touch, and the skin on top of the base structure because as it is it's pretty... unconventional to say the least. So I think there's still a lot to be done, but once again, it seems to me that it could be a good starting point, thanks anon. Though I will wait the feedback of the actual robowaifu technicians.
under ten thousand what? oof Yeah I mean I'll take inspiration from that btu how is it so expensive? Also I just got a raspberry pi zero. Don't tell me it needs a regular raspberry pi lol. Went from radxa zero, to orange pi 3 to rapsberry pi zero...
We have already had this thread OP. Since you never replied to my post, I moved it as I told you I would. (>>24531) If you decide to actually carry this out as your own personal project, then please discuss it with me in our current /meta thread. Till then use the thread linked above for discussion about The Poppy-project's own project. This one will also be locked till then.

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

Anyway, thanks for the great contribution ITT now! I take it you've been here on /robowaifu/ for a bit? 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?

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.
