Beginners guide to AI, ML, DL. Beginner Anon 11/10/2020 (Tue) 07:12:47 No.6560 [Reply] [Last]
I already know we have a thread dedicated to books,videos,tutorials etc. But there are a lot of resources there and as a beginner it is pretty confusing to find the correct route to learn ML/DL advanced enough to be able contribute robowaifu project. That is why I thought we would need a thread like this. Assuming that I only have basic programming in python, dedication, love for robowaifus but no maths, no statistics, no physics, no college education how can I get advanced enough to create AI waifus? I need a complete pathway directing me to my aim. I've seen that some of you guys recommended books about reinforcement learning and some general books but can I really learn enough by just reading them? AI is a huge field so it's pretty easy to get lost. What I did so far was to buy a non-english great book about AI, philosophycal discussions of it, general algorithms, problem solving techniques, history of it, limitations, gaming theories... But it's not a technical book. Because of that I also bought a few courses on this website called Udemy. They are about either Machine Learning or Deep Learning. I am hoping to learn basic algorithms through those books but because I don't have maths it is sometimes hard to understand the concept. For example even when learning linear regression, it is easy to use a python library but can't understand how it exactly works because of the lack of Calculus I have. Because of that issue I have hard time understanding algorithms. >>5818 >>6550 Can those anons please help me? Which resources should I use in order to be able to produce robowaifus? If possible, you can even create a list of books/courses I need to follow one by one to be able to achieve that aim of mine. If not, I can send you the resources I got and you can help me to put those in an order. I also need some guide about maths as you can tell. Yesterday after deciding and promising myself that I will give whatever it takes to build robowaifus I bought 3 courses about linear alg, calculus, stats but I'm not really good at them. I am waiting for your answers anons, thanks a lot!

>>16420 Neat, thanks for the info Anon.
Hey Chobitsu! I am glad to see you again, yeah please go on and fix the post. > So thanks! :^) If it wasn't for you and the great contributors of the board, I would not have a place to post that so I thank you! And the library thread was really necessary, I wish that the board had a better search function as well. I was trying to find some specific posts and it took me a long while to remember which threads they were on. > so maybe we can share notes My University provided me with a platform full of questions. So basically, they have like 250 types of questions for precalculus for instance. The system is automated and what it does is to generate infinite number of questions of that specific type of question and also explains the solution for every question. It changes the variables randomly and gives you space to solve as much as you want. I believe that the platform requires money for independent use. Besides that, I just study from Khan Academy, but the book you mentioned caught my interest. I will probably look into it. If I ever find any good books on that matter, I will make sure to share them with you.
>>6560 >But there are a lot of resources there and as a beginner it is pretty confusing to find the correct route to learn ML/DL advanced enough to be able contribute robowaifu project. I can give a relatively uncommon advice here: DL is more about intuition + engineering than theory anyway. Just hack things until they work, and feel good about it. Understanding will come later. Install pytorch and play with tensor api, go through their basic tutorial https://pytorch.org/tutorials/beginner/nn_tutorial.html while hacking on it and trying to understand as much as possible. Develop a hoarder mentality: filter r/MachineLearning and github.com/trending/python for cool repos and models, try to clone & run them, fix and build around. This should be a self-reinforcing activity, you should not have other dopaminergic timesinks because you will go the way of least resistance then. Read cool people's repos to get a feeling of the trade: https://github.com/karpathy https://github.com/lucidrains Read blogs http://karpathy.github.io/ https://lilianweng.github.io/posts/2018-06-24-attention/ https://evjang.com/2021/10/23/generalization.html https://www.gwern.net/Scaling-hypothesis https://twitter.com/ak92501 When you feel more confident, you can start delving into papers on your own, use https://arxiv-sanity-lite.com/ https://www.semanticscholar.org/ https://inciteful.xyz/ to travel across the citation graph. git gud.

>>16467 Very neat Anon, great idea they had to do a combo like that. Definitely a little pricey for what we're going for here in general, but overall probably a decent technical approach. A couple more-modest SBCs (RPi, etc), a handful of MCs and I'm guessing that would cover most of the onboard-compute needs of a entry-tier basic robowaifu model.

Robowaifu Simulator Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 03:07:13 No.155 [Reply] [Last]
What would be a good RW simulator. I guess I'd like to start with some type of PCG solution that just builds environments to start with and build from there up to characters.

It would be nice if the system wasn't just pre-canned, hard-coded assets and behaviors but was instead a true simulator system. EG, write robotics control software code that can actually calculate mechanics, kinematics, collisions, etc., and have that work correctly inside the basic simulation framework first with an eye to eventually integrating it into IRL Robowaifu mechatronic systems with little modifications. Sort of like the OpenAI Gym concept but for waifubots.

It's a complete system with physics, robot models, rendering stack and ML integrations.

Pandora Project Thread AllieDev Board volunteer 03/05/2022 (Sat) 02:25:52 No.15404 [Reply] [Last]
This is the Pandora thread where I hope to start a overall modular robowaifu framework over time. This is an open board project and collaboration is encouraged. In my efforts to engineer a robowaifu, I'd found that going to a more robotic design would be faster and overall easier to engineer and assemble. For a start, I will post the progress of how far I've gotten on modeling Pandora before I begin the process of breaking everything down into printable parts and assembling functional prototypes. Had also changed her drones to have completely different functionality in my redesign, but that's fanfiction and not really relevant to the board. Engineering them is.

>>16370 >I look forward to what you have in mind for Pandora. You're the team leader for the project AllieDev. I'll try to help out as I may. So, if you're asking for my advice then I would say basically that: A) We need to stay as nearly compatible with the MaidCom project as is feasible with Pandora's design allows. B) We need to keep everything (designs, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, sensors & computer hardware, software goals, etc., etc.) as small & simple & cheap as possible during this first prototyping attempt. After all, it's important to make something that just werks first, then we can blue-sky later as we go along, right Anon? That's pretty much it from my current perspective. If we can just follow these two basic goals, then we are very likely to succeed with Pandora right out of the gate. I pray we do so! :^) === As far as specifics relating to our software goals go, we're already working towards general-purpose solutions under the umbrella of the RW Foundations framework, as you're aware. Now the RW Pandora sub-project 'inherits' the vast bulk of her abilities from the RW Arigato's main project. This is the same for all robowaifus that choose to adopt the Foundations in their system's designs. Sumomo & Kotoko for example, also indirectly inherit all their abilities from RW Arigato. Longer term, Arigato has many different capability goals on tap. Here's the current listing of member classes: >arigato.hpp snippet inline auto animeyes() const -> Animeyes& { return animeyes_; } inline auto atashi() const -> Atashi& { return atashi_; } inline auto bones() const -> Bones& { return bones_; }

I had a nice long rant but I don't see any point in continuing to respond to an entity who was always curt and dismissive of all my attempts at rapport and just using me for my talents the entire time until I stood up for myself, then they flaked after claiming they were committed.

I apologize if I come off as rehashing the past. I just mean to leave a word of caution based on my own experiences with them and learning from my own mistakes. In better news, It's good to see newfags are still continuing to make their own projects and do their own thing regardless. As it is one of the board's biggest strengths. Would really hate to see it flooded with the terminal autism that has rendered most online discussion unusable in recent years. Unlike the inaccurate phrase: "nothing good lasts forever." there is a better and more accurate saying: "No good thing ever dies." Something I believe applies to Robowaifus and Pandora.

Ashiel - A Robowaifu Design Project SoaringMoon 05/20/2022 (Fri) 11:22:02 No.16319 [Reply]
< Introduction to This Thread This thread is going to be dedicated to my ongoing robowaifu project. This isn't exactly new, I have mentioned it here before in passing. However, this is the first thread I have opened specific to my robowaifu project and not an artificially intelligent chatbot. This thread will be updated when I have something to say about robowaifu design, or have an update on the project. Most of the content will be of the kind of me proposing an idea or suggestion for developers to make the construction of a robowaifu easier. My design philosophy is one of simplicity and the solving of problems instead of jumping to the most accurate simulacrum of the female human form. Small steps make incremental progress, which is something the community need because little progress is made at all. What progress we do make takes years of work, typically from a single person. Honestly, I'm getting tired of that being the norm in the robowaifu community. I'm frankly just done with that stagnation. Join me on my journey, or get left behind. < About Ashiel ASHIEL is an acronym standing for /A/rtificial /S/hell-/H/oused /I/ntelligence and /E/mulated /L/ogic. Artificial, created by man. Shell-Housed, completely enclosed. Intelligence and Emulated Logic, are both a combination of machine learning-based natural language processing and tree-based lookup techniques. ASHIEL is simply Ashiel in any future context, as that will be her name. Ashiel is an artificially intelligent gynoid intended to specialize in precise movement, and engage in basic conversation. Its conversational awareness would be at least equal to that of Replika, but with no chat filtering and a much larger memory sample size. If you want to know what this feels like, play AIDungeon 2. With tree-based lookup, it should be able to perform any of the basic tasks Siri or Alexa can perform. Looking up definitions to words over the internet, managing a calendar, setting an alarm, playing music on demand... etc. The limitations of the robot are extensive. Example limitations include but are not limited to: the speaker will be located in the head mouth area but will obviously come from an ill-resonating speaker cavity; the mouth will likely not move at all, if so not in any meaningful way; The goals of the project include: basic life utility; accurate contextual movement; the ability to self-clean; ample battery life; charging from a home power supply with no additional modifications; large memory-based storage with the ability to process and train in downtime; and yes, one should be able to fuck it. This is meant to be the first iteration in a series of progressively more involved recreational android projects. It is very unlikely the first iteration will ever be completed of course. Like many before me, I will almost certainly fail. However, I will do what I can to provide as much information as I can so my successors can take up the challenge more knowledgeably. < About Me

>>16359 LiFePO4 is definitely the best possible option for waifu's. If using that chemistry, it's mostly safe to keep it in the legs. Though, as has been mentioned, othe Li based chemistries would be dangerous in the arms and legs. >Balance As someone who did much research into balance years ago; shifting upper body mass or a low center of mass have many benefits compared to reaction wheels for bipeds. These include, much lower energy consumption with low center of mass designs essentially requiring no energy for balance, though more energy to move. Simpler design, and they're easier to program as reaction wheels are finicky to get right. You could also just give them a tail, the easiest way to attain balance is to increase points of surface contact. A dress with wheels also helps.

Right to Repair is allowing side, not the denying side. >implies we sell things here Yes, did you think if I'm building an android for private use that you would be getting it free of charge? Advocating for right to repair means that if I do sell it to you that you would have permission to modify the product you own. The product should come with a manual that includes electrical and engineering schematics to better facilitating you do that. Calling it an "astroturfing buzzword" undermines the entire ideology of hacky customization of one's own electronics.
>>16424 One thing I'd like to point out Kywy regarding my regular encouragement to 'centralize' robowaifu's mass around her center of gravity is with longer-term, fully-bipedal-capable robowaifu designs in mind. Basic physics for our more advanced mechanical designs to come, yeah? But please understand I'm not in any way suggesting the approach we're adopting in MaidCom initial prototype is somehow flawed. Indeed I think it's literally the best compromise solution we can manage ATM for something that just werks + provides the basic facilities you've set for the project's goals. >tl;dr Drive on! :^)
>>16426 >Well she is the size of a christmas ornament lol. Heh.

Understood. The abuses of Apple and other lawyer-filled mega-Globohomo corporations sparked this debate long ago, it's nothing new. And actually, it's a real & legitimate grassroots resistance to some of the Globohomo's evil shenanigans, AllieDev.

Robowaifus in media Robowaifu Technician 09/10/2019 (Tue) 06:24:00 No.82 [Reply] [Last]
After reading anon's Robowaifu fiction bread, I wondered what media is out there that already predominately features a robowaifu(s) as an important character. Animu and mango are obvious choices (pic related), but surely there are live action movies as well.


post robowaifu movies, books, etc.

Hi no Tori 2772 - Ai no CosmoZone. It's set in the distant future, where children are raised alone in pods with a helper robot. Their fates and social class are selected for them, and they're let out of the pod and directed towards their fates when they turn into adults. The first 10 minutes or so are a silent film, then it really starts. Of course, the protagonist's helper robot is a cute girl.

Open-Source Licenses Comparison Robowaifu Technician 07/24/2020 (Fri) 06:24:05 No.4451 [Reply] [Last]
Hi anons! After looking at the introductory comment in >>2701 which mentions the use of the MIT licence for robowaifu projects. I read the terms: https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT Seems fine to me, however I've also been considering the 3-clause BSD licence: https://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause >>4432 The reason I liked this BSD licence is the endorsement by using the creator's name (3rd clause) must be done by asking permission first. I like that term as it allows me to decide if I should endorse a derivative or not. Do you think that's a valid concern? Initially I also thought that BSD has the advantage of forcing to retain the copyright notice, however MIT seems to do that too. It has been mentioned that MIT is already used and planned to be used. How would the these two licences interplay with each other? Can I get a similar term applied from BSD's third clause but with MIT?

Leaving this here as it has a clear, relatively easy-to-understand comparison of various licenses out there. https://www.openbsd.org/policy.html
I use ISC. It's almost a BSD-2-Clause equivalent. First, the text is more brief. Second, it doesn't specifically say that the license text has to be distributed with both the source and the binary forms of the program, it only says it has to be distributed with "copies". I use it for the brevity. I've noticed some code that gets reimplemented over and over again, often poorly, so I started a project that tries to implement it properly with BSD-0-Clause which is derived from the ISC license but has its only 2 terms removed so it's public domain equivalent except it disclaims all warranties. I did it because I know even being told to copypaste the license text and to include it in releases is too much for some. The reason I use ISC over BSD-0-Clause in other projects is that there's some legal bullshit that says that if your warranty disclaimer isn't visible it doesn't count, and I assume nobody will go after my ass due to warranties, but that's no reason to stay vulnerable, so I use ISC unless I have a reason not to. Ideally, copyright wouldn't exist, but the ISC license is written using language humans can read, and it essentially says "do whatever you want I don't care as long as you copy this license text" which is not perfect but good enough. I'm seeding terabytes of infringed copyright on my torrent client right now. I wish there was a copyleft license that was compatible with 100% of free licenses. The idea behind copyleft is good, but the issue with copyleft licenses is that they end up cucking other FLOSS developers from using your software, and that's unacceptable. Working with every single FLOSS program like the permissive licenses do is a hard requirement for me. But really, if someone copypasted my ISC software and didn't give me credit I wouldn't care, I would even be happy someone is using something I made, I really just want copyright and its supporters to die, to reiterate: singular reason that "copy the loicense pls" tidbit is in the license I use is to cover my ass, but ultimately, I want people to do whatever the heck they want with their copies.
BTW, OpenWRT violates the shit of all the licenses and gets into 0 trouble for it. Go to the OpenWRT repositories right now and download any package, it's just a .tar.gz tarball with a different extesion. Look into the contents of the package: there is no license text anywhere. A lot of FLOSS licenses require that the license text be distributed with binary, but OpenWRT simply doesn't do it. I approve. OpenBSD does almost the same thing, they very rarely distribute the loicense, so they're violating the license of most of their packages with such a term.

In this thread post links to books, videos, MOOCs, tutorials, forums, and general learning resources about creating robots (particularly humanoid robots), writing AI or other robotics related software, design or art software, electronics, makerspace training stuff or just about anything that's specifically an educational resource and also useful for anons learning how to build their own robowaifus. >tl;dr ITT we mek /robowaifu/ school.

The Elements of Computing Systems, second edition: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles Noam Nisan, Shimon Schocken >I Hardware >"The true voyage of discovery consists not of going to new places, but of having a new pair of eyes." >t.Marcel Proust (1871–1922) >This book is a voyage of discovery. You are about to learn three things: how computer systems work, how to break complex problems into manageable modules, and how to build large-scale hardware and software systems. This will be a hands-on journey, as you create a complete and working computer system from the ground up. The lessons you will learn, which are far more important than the computer itself, will be gained as side effects of these constructions. According to the psychologist Carl Rogers, “The only kind of learning which significantly influences behavior is self-discovered or self-appropriated—truth that has been assimilated in experience.” This introduction chapter sketches some of the discoveries, truths, and experiences that lie ahead. 33E8664A26F52769692C070A31A96CCE

So I think the time has finally come at last. I hope for the fortitude of soul to finally pursue maths. As a repeat High School dropout they kept putting me back in anyway lol, I absolutely loathed (and do even moreso today) the modern public """education""" systems. So I felt at the time my decisions were well-merited. Heh. So, fast-forward to today and I barely know how to add 2+2 haha. :^) Missing out on the basics of algebra, trig, geometry, pre-calc, calc, stats, etc., is proving a big hindrance to my progress today for us with robowaifus. Even though I'm now an adult man, I think I can still pick it up. The challenge is making the time to study on top of my already-overflowing plate, and the AFK pressures of keeping body & soul connected together. >tl;dr I'm starting with Euler's, wish me luck Anons! > >P.S. Feel free to pester me once a year -- say, during Summers -- to know how this little project is going. Sharp pointy-sticks can be a good thing after all. :^)
