/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

Robowaifu Power and Control Systems Electronic Chronicler 06/22/2021 (Tue) 21:45:47 No.11018 [Reply]
Hi Anons, making a thread as suggested in >>10947 I've been thinking about this for a long while, and wanted to throw in a draft and see if anyone has comments/criticisms/additions. I present to you the draft of the Robowaifu Power and Control System (RPCS). This draft is by no means complete or definite, but it is a starting point. Let's call it version 0.1a. The version follows major.minor and a letter for bug-fixes. Minor is for feature addition/reduction, major for when we eventually get there XD. From a legal stand point, this is under CC0 or public domain (unless Chobitsu has specific licensing for the content on /robowaifu/). I intend for the draft to develop further and stay open for use by anyone. Summary A full-size robowaifu system needs several things: - Power distribution. Main system bus coming from a Li-ON battery (or other technology). One backup 5V emergency power supply used by slow communications to check appendage integrity, sensors etc. - Main processor. In this post I won't be delving into it in great detail, and mostly treating it as a black box. - Low/medium throughput communication for simple sensor, debug, or status information. Must be robust and must work before any high-level software is working (including the network stack). - High throughput communication for large data-logging, visual processing etc. - "Spine" or communication interconnect. Multiplexes many connections from many sub-systems to the main processor. Includes power distribution connection (allowing individual control to sub-systems). - Sub-systems to actually do the fun stuff! (Arms, legs, nekomimi ears, etc.) Terminology Brain refers to the main processor (and all of its sub-systems treated as a single unit).

>>11175 One more thing about the brain. Like a PC motherboard has a BIOS speaker, so should we have a minimal amount of hardware periphery for the low-level Brain, perhaps even just skip the whole concept and put all low level control in the Spine, with all the Brain sub-systems being connected via internal network. I imagine at least a speaker, some lights, maybe a status display (or a debug connector for one?) to be available for checking error codes, knowing what stage in the boot process the robowaifu is in.

New Paradigm of CPU and PCB Architecture meta ronin 06/18/2021 (Fri) 23:47:00 No.10965 [Reply]
Considering where we want to go, a robowaifu with brittle and fragile PCBs, soldering contacts and delicate wires is something which can and should be improved upon. Closed CPU architecture is key as well as the possibility to port the waifu to a new body if necessary. Several supplements and 6 shots of espresso later, I've sketched this (somewhat humorous but also somewhat serious) concept. This is only a processor and not a memory module, but there are a few things I wanted to bring up via this illustration 1. The idea of discarding the PCB model for something suspending in heat dissipating resin, mostly rigid, waterproof and shock resistant, those chips aren't going anywhere, plus it looks black/translucent and cool and we want our waifus aesthetic without clunky square innards. This gives it the mega-man memory crystal aesthetic 2. CPUs dedicated to specific types of processing. Do one job and do it well. a)Since our human brains are split into left-right, logical vs. abstract, I think it would be an advantage to have separate processors to say recall facts and perform calculations vs say, paint a picture or appreciate nature. The "creative" CPU may very well work like Google AI or something of that sort via self seeding feedback-recursion. (therefore our waifus can imagine and dream too). b)mirror neurons and environmental modeling: important for our waifu to understand that we are like her, and not simply another object like a chair or a tree. Gives her the ability to understand how to interact with others and the world via empathy by constantly comparing her own similar experiences with what she sees or experiences. This also requires an internal 3d spacial model of her environment which would be continually updates from sensory input, and like us, fuzzy logic assumption could fill in the gaps where necessary. I figure something like a GPU core array would do the trick here. c) Impetus motivational chip - basically the reward/dopamine system d) Safety or Hazard prevention Chip - would interface directly with the Environmental Simulation chip, any potential hazard or danger to herself or her owner (or even another, if she is the cause) would cause her to freeze or back up a step before assessing further. Would also be useful for necessary danger/pain avoidant reflexes and self preservation. I figure industrial (BUS for example) systems such as in factories or that manage car braking, steering, etc. would already be on the cutting edge of this and we might be able to borrow something from them. Ports would basically be for power and charging a small internal lithium battery and another strictly for I/O Use this thread for any elaboration on this concept, or feedback (or your own ideas if you think you have something better but along the same lines) -M.Ronin

>>11075 >Thermal paste is mostly a grease carrier with some powdered solids in it. For AS5 the powder is ground up silver and it is considered very unlikely that the silver particles will ever perfectly line up to cause a short because of the very large amount of grease and tiny amount of solids. admittedly that's tricky, I imagine anything that surrounds the silver will impede its heat conductivity. This will require thinking outside the box, maybe metamaterials of a certain property could solve this one
>>11076 >This will require thinking outside the box, maybe metamaterials Sounds great. I'm sure you can think of something interesting for it. Please keep us updated here on it ITT. My guess is some form of liquid carrier for the heat -- something that is also electrically insulative -- will be the proper course for us in keeping our high-heat (eg, hip actuators, etc.) robowaifu components nice and cooled off.

>>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).

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.

Guide to Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Industrial Control Systems Security Recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology
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.

Good morning /robowaifu/. For today's cooking-lesson class, we'll be baking up some delicious Sepplesberry Pies. First we prepare some crispy and light Pi crusts and get them just right, then we'll load them up with tons and tonnes of succulent and Juci Sepplesberrys. 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.
>>9382 >Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon. 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. Another thing: Which files would I need to copy into Waifusearch, to use the updated jsons for search. I know you're planning to join these anyways, just wondering if I can do it manually or with a small script on my own. Again, I'm not trying to urge anything here. Not that important.
>>9396 >Which files would I need to copy into Waifusearch, to use the updated jsons for search. Well, here's my crappy shell script I use for it. >cp_jsons.sh #!/usr/bin/env bash unalias cp cd /home/johnny/_prj/BUMP-0.2e/ torify -i build/bump alogs.theГунтretort.com robowaifu cd alogs.theГунтretort.com/robowaifu/ find threads/ -iname '*.json' -exec cp -f -t all_jsons/ {} + rm all_jsons/*_file_404s.json rm all_jsons/7143.json rm all_jsons/273.json cp -f all_jsons/* /home/johnny/_prj/waifusearch/all_jsons/ cd .. >tl;dr All of them (well except the library/archive threads).

>>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

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.
