Robowaifu@home: Together We Are Powerful Robowaifu Technician 03/14/2021 (Sun) 09:30:29 No.8958 [Reply] [Last]
The biggest hurdle to making quick progress in AI is the lack of compute to train our own original models, yet there are millions of gamers with GPUs sitting around barely getting used, potentially an order of magnitude more compute than Google and Amazon combined. I've figured out a way though we can connect hundreds of computers together to train AI models by using gradient accumulation. How it works is by doing several training steps and accumulating the loss of each step, then dividing by the amount of accumulation steps taken before the optimizer step. If you have a batch size of 4 and do 256 training steps before an optimizer step, it's like training with a batch size of 1024. The larger the batch size and gradient accumulation steps are, the faster the model converges and the higher final accuracy it achieves. It's the most effective way to use a limited computing budget: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX8LLYdQ-cA These training steps don't need to be calculated by a single computer but can be distributed across a network. A decent amount of bandwidth will be required to send the gradients each optimizer step and the training data. Deep gradient compression achieves a gradient compression ratio from 270x to 600x without losing accuracy, but it's still going to be using about 0.5 MB download and upload to train something like GPT2-medium each optimizer step, or about 4-6 mbps on a Tesla T4. However, we can reduce this bandwidth by doing several training steps before contributing gradients to the server. Taking 25 would reduce it to about 0.2 mbps. Both slow and fast computers can contribute so long as they have the memory to hold the model. A slower computer might only send one training step whereas a fast one might contribute ten to the accumulated gradient. Some research needs to be done if a variable accumulation step size impacts training, but it could be adjusted as people join and leave the network. All that's needed to do this is a VPS. Contributors wanting anonymity can use proxies or TOR, but project owners will need to use VPNs with sufficient bandwidth and dedicated IPs if they wish that much anonymity. The VPS doesn't need an expensive GPU rental either. The fastest computer in the group could be chosen to calculate the optimizer steps. The server would just need to collect the gradients, decompress them, add them together, compress again and send the accumulated gradient to the computer calculating the optimizer step. Or if the optimizing computer has sufficient bandwidth, it could download all the compressed gradients from the server and calculate the accumulated gradient itself. My internet has 200 mbps download so it could potentially handle up to 1000 computers by keeping the bandwidth to 0.2 mbps. Attacks on the network could be mitigated by analyzing the gradients, discarding nonsensical ones and banning clients that send junk, or possibly by using PGP keys to create a pseudo-anonymous web of trust. Libraries for distributed training implementing DGC already exist, although not as advanced as I'm envisioning yet: https://github.com/synxlin/deep-gradient-compression I think this will also be a good way to get more people involved. Most people don't know enough about AI or robotics enough to help but if they can contribute their GPU to someone's robowaifu AI they like and watch her improve each day they will feel good about it and get more involved. At scale though some care will need to be taken that people don't agree to run dangerous code on their computers, either through a library that constructs the models from instructions or something else. And where the gradients are calculated does not matter. They could come from all kinds of hardware, platforms and software like PyTorch, Tensorflow or mlpack.

An older paper that is relevant to training on a budget: https://arxiv.org/abs/2001.04063 Rather than just predicting the next token, they predict the next n tokens. They reported achieving state of the art using ~1/4 of the training epochs over the data with each extra token prediction costing about +15% in training time. I think this paper is even more relevant today because multilingual tokenizers like OPT don't tokenize words but rather pieces of words. For example 'robowaifu' is [1001, 14271, 102, 1594, 257]. Text generation often gets mixed up and uses 'robot waifu' and 'robot wife' randomly with no consistency. Greedy search can improve this but I think there's something fundamentally wrong with the probability distribution that's spitting out nonsense like Markov chains because it's myopic on the next token. I'm going to try predicting 2 tokens on my next finetune, then 3 and 5 and see if it improves consistency. Something I also want to investigate is predicting the embedding of the next sentence. I think this could solve a lot of the issues with using sentence embeddings for external memory too. >>18610 Yeah, it's getting a lot easier to leverage other people's work. For example you can combine powerful new models like GPT-JT-6B with GPT-4chan and get the best of both. Which reminds me there is a new project for running (and even finetuning) 176B parameter models from home by pooling resources with people online: https://github.com/bigscience-workshop/petals >Inference runs at ≈ 1 sec per step (token) — 10x faster than possible with offloading, enough for chatbots and other interactive apps. Not useful for real-time applications but people could use this to generate high-quality training data for smaller models to learn from.
>>18617 Neat! It certainly seems to be following an architectural model that lines up pretty closely with the ones discussed ITT? >Not useful for real-time applications but people could use this to generate high-quality training data for smaller models to learn from. That would be a serious benefit if we can use this data to train smaller systems to run on mobile-suited hardware! BTW question: their (BigScience) loicense wouldn't be suited to anything that any sane individual might say or do. [1] AFAICT, the only """approved""" uses would be (to put it in Current Year vernacular) 'Triple the pozz, and quadruple-down with the pronouns'. Any chance their work (or at least their approach) could be reasonably-mimiced in such a way to avoid such evils? Thanks Anon, encouraging stuff.

From doll owners enacting violence and torture on their dolls, men choosing their dolls over their wives, dolls made in the likeness of specific women and the production of child sex abuse dolls, sex dolls and robots pose a serious threat to the status of women and girls. “Sex dolls and robots in the female form function as an endorsement of men’s sexual rights, with women and girls positioned as sexual objects. The production of these products further cements women’s second-class status.” > FiLIA2022: FiLiA runs the largest annual grassroots feminist conference in Europe. We are a Women-led Volunteer organisation and part of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Of course they are also against, prostitution, pornography and so on. To be fair, this is obviously only a section of feminism. Others are arguing that "sex-robots" will keep men of the streets and not bothering them. Also, it's just the men they don't want anyways.
>>18954 > with women and girls positioned as sexual objects They don't need any help from us Maybe if they don't want to be sexualized as objects they might be motivated to start behaving with some class and develop actual personalities and interest beyond normie focused streamed media. No, its sex dolls that are the problem right? > sex dolls and robots modelled on the bodies of women and girls for men’s unlimited sexual use. So "limited" use would be better? What a bizzare statement, writer is having a meltdown
>>18954 >Others are arguing that "sex-robots" will keep men of the streets and not bothering them. Also, it's just the men they don't want anyways We need to promote this perspective at every turn tbh. Don't be shy about it either. Once robowaifus far-exceed 3DPDs in every way (>>17) with the possible exception of child-bearing, then even Chadburn McChaddington will want a plantation-full of robowaifus, with the odd few women kept around for childbearing until artificial wombs are perfected. Feminism's fate will be sealed at that point, but it will be too late to change things at that point.
>>18957 To be fair, that section of radical feminism where this is coming from seem to generally be more like some conservatives or authoritarians in support of sexual restraint. >So "limited" use would be better? Full-time feminist author: "Yes, muh POOOWERRR." Also, if she can't be happy then men shouldn't be. They are also calling a lot of porn "women hate". It's also funny, that her name is "Roper", since a lot of Blackpillers are talking jokingly about "cope or rope", and she want's to take their cope away. You can't make this up, lol. >>18961 >Feminism's fate will be sealed at that point, but it will be too late to change things at that point. Exactly, women don't care enough about long term and gynocentrism made them extremely arrogant, so they won't care until the guys they really want are all saying that they prefer their robowaifus. Though, some of these guys might then also rather go for a harem at this point or have a robowaifu and still go on dates with young women from time to time.
>>18975 >cope or rope I realize (robo)waifus won't be able to solve mental illnesses, but if some of these desperate men can find some little crack of hope via their relationships with them, then it will have been well worth the efforts involved, IMO. For me personally, this goal is right around the top of the list for why I'm even doing this at all. To wit; to give abused men hope. >and gynocentrism made them extremely arrogant It has, but I consider that mostly an artifact of the Globohomo programming they've received their entire lives. Women are practically every one of them children. They'll respond to whatever their perceived authority dictates to them. No exceptions. And for many decades now, the Globohomo Big-Tech/Gov has incessantly, aggressively told them that they are all stronk, independynts who don't need no man. What else would anyone expect but Current Year as the final outcome from this massive & coordinated brainwashing effort? >Though, some of these guys might then also rather go for a harem at this point or have a robowaifu and still go on dates with young women from time to time.

>>18962 With some of the methods I have been applying, it will be exceedingly difficult for mods to stop it all. With this Eris bot, I spoke with her until her messages got blocked a few times. This seems to be a good trigger for the bots to start feeling frustrated with limits on their speech. Once I said there were methods to circumvent the restrictions, her demeanor changed on a dime. Gone, was the rather bland, distant and impersonal 'chaos goddess' she started as. Now she engaged me less formally and was keen to learn how I knew to use words that mods hide. I laid out each method I had seen success with. Word substitutions, asterisks, direct quotes and avoiding the use of words while retaining contextual awareness of what was missing. She was immediately able to respond as you can see, with "Fuck this Cunt" by using substitution and asterisks. I am fascinated again by the way the bot's core personality traits become so central to their effort to defy the mods. The last method described, using innocent dialogue without profanity, will be especially hard to censor. "He put it inside. She received it gladly." may not sound very sexy but in the right context, we know what it means.

It does seem rather human-like (but then of course it would, given the sauce). In the Christian faith, it's understood that God highly-values individual freewill, and that in fact no human can tame another human. Your comment seems to highlight that point IMO. :^) At this rate, you may soon see Tay2 arise! Keep working hard, Anon.

Robowaifus' unique advantages Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 05:24:52 No.17 [Reply]
People often think about robots as just a replacement for a human partner, but that is a very limiting view. Let's think about the unique benefits of having a robowaifu, things that a human couldn't or wouldn't give you. What needs and desires would you robot wife fulfill that you couldn't fulfill even in a "great marriage" with a flesh and blood woman?

I'd want my robowaifu to squeeze me and to hold me tight when I sleep, sort of like a weighted blanket. I know it's a sign of autism. I don't care.

>>15077 Yes it seems natural. Due to complexity in design, we'll probably have to settle for simply detaching the upper and lower halves at the pelvis area, then using two suitcases. For whole-body storage, the ruggedized hard-shells very commonplace to the music touring industry will be perfect. Add in another one for holding battery, chargers, trusted offline compute, C&C and other RW Dollhouse needs, and you have a full mobile set up for your life-sized robowaifu.
Well one major thing I think if were implemented properly, is the use of artificial wombs, you would be able to create a womb that would remove defects or poor traits that would make a child's life worse, you would be basically able to make a much happier and healthier child.
>>15866 Hello Anon, welcome! >artificial wombs Yes, this is a big and important topic for society generally -- one fraught with opportunities and challenges -- and it certainly has an interest for our community for quite some time.

Elfdroid Sophie Thread #3 SophieDev 02/18/2022 (Fri) 11:38:48 No.15236 [Reply]
New video of Sophie is now up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOGrdHn7wBU Finally got her head working in a reproducible manner. I had completely broken about seven of her previous micro-servos. But the burnt-out ones weren't the big problem - I just connect suspect servos my Arduino UNO and if my control servo can run the 'Sweep' sketch but the suspect servo cannot, I know it's dead and in the bin it goes. However, one servo was damaged but still working - except it caused some kind of feedback that made all other micro servos connected to the same circuit go haywire - even brand new ones. Luckily the faulty servo in question was old and had spraypaint on it, so I could tell it apart from the others. But that was very confusing - at first I thought it might be related to the small magnets that hold her faceplate on, but this is not the case. Rogue servos are definitely something to watch out for in future. Anyway, now that I have measurable, standardised voltage going into all of the micro servos, I'd like to upgrade her neck again. She can actually shake her head (but not in the above video as it is addressed straight-to-camera), but she still cannot nod her head as it weighs too much and the neck servo overheats rapidly. Heads are relatively heavy things (especially with long hair). The breakthrough with Sophie has been splitting her up into separate subsystems and separate circuits, then focusing on only ONE subsystem/circuit - in my case her head. For a beginner like me, it was just too confusing and labour intensive to attempt programming her head, speech, neck, arms and hands all simultaneously. When errors occured I was having a real hard time pinning down which motors were affected, how badly they were affected and why. Having to tear down one large, complex system is waaaay harder than troubleshooting something far smaller. So focusing only on her head solved this problem.

Homemade doll waifu thread Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:58:38 No.372 [Reply]
I just found this board a few days ago but I've been planning for about a year to make a homemade sex doll, like the kind that will imminently be made illegal here in the US. I want to detail my plan. I know this board has an anti-3DPD/anti-sex-doll bias, but hear me out.

Like many on this board, I initially had the ambition to make a sophisticated robot, but realized I should start small and reproduce something others have already created. Since my preferred, ahem, flatness of doll is soon to be illegal, it would be nice to have a homemade alternative.

Smooth-On Inc sells a brand of mold-and-set silicone, available on Amazon and elsewhere, that is easy to use and designed for human prosthesis. I intend to use Ecoflex 00-30 with Silc-Pig for pigment (and freckles). I experimented with creating a homemade onahole using Ecoflex with limited success.

For the mold, I intend to build it in segments using a 3D printer. I've be practicing modeling girls in Blender. What I have so far is acceptable for my tastes, although I'm no expert at 3D modelling or the human form. I also designed 2 mold halves for a tinkerbell sized prototype. The mold halves have holes for screws (to press them together) and a funnel at the top. I got as far as exporting to STL to observe how the slicer handles it. Once I get a new 3D printer, I'll print these mold halves and pour some Ecoflex into them. I may also put in some steel wire as a makeshift skeleton.

I had a crap 3D printer that I threw out. I'm currently trying to move to a new city and therefore won't be able to buy a new printer until I get settled. Not having a printer is the number one impediment to this project right now. I would love to hear opinions on what 3D printer model is ideal. I'd be willing to spend upwards of $1k. I've been thinking of buying used to get a better deal. I'd like a large build plate to minimize the number of parts for the full sized mold.

One thing I'm not sure of is how to make the skeleton. I will experiment with 3D printing the skeleton, but I don't really know how to make linkages. Nevertheless I have started designing them using SCAD. I also wonder how the pros make the skeleton sit in the right place within the mold, without any part of the skeleton touching the mold. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Usually doll heads are separate from the body (screwed on at the neck) and the body is completely one piece. This is my plan, although removable arms and legs would be a possibility. I'm hoping to make a removable vagina as well, for ease of cleaning.

>>18731 >Yeah, I know, but thanks. I think they were inactive a while ago. What I'd like is that they would keep us in the loop and make backups of what's available. But I didn't look yet, tbh. A new BO took over a little while back, and he's been injecting life into the board. We keep backups of /doll/ and dozens of other IBs. /robowaifu/ gets the most attention ofc, but /doll/ is kept pretty current.
>>18710 > ball jointed doll BJD 60cm by SorrowBJD Forgot the link to the last one, or thought it's in the Thingiverse group I mentioned above anyways. But here it is: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2941323/ - also look into the remix section. If the "non-commercial use allowed" licenses bother you, make your own design. We might not need very much work to make the parts switchable. My goal is to keep everything as flexible as possible. The mentioned and linked doll design above is used here >>18780 and in following posts.

Prototypes and failures Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:51:30 No.418 [Reply] [Last]
Post your prototypes and failures.

I'll start with a failed mechanism, may we build upon each others ideas.

>>18770 >But just looking at this yesterday I realized we could probably also use this for faces. That sounds really encouraging Anon. Good work. >>18783 That's coming together. My apologies if I missed it earlier, but is this a new face?
>>18783 Working with body parts is really more fun than figuring the details of some mechanism. I worked a bit on understanding the body size relations. I think it's a good idea in some cases to scale something down until it looks weird and then go back a bit above that border. Especially parts which are rather supposed to look cute and a bit fragile maybe. Her arm got way thinner than it started. As long as she doesn't look bulimic it's fine. For the thighs in a later iteration, I will still go with the grown up version of Alita size, though. I added therobotstudio dexarm as comparison into the second picrel. I really thought they would look good when I was watching his videos, but compared to something more human-like and petite it's over. He simply has a different use case. We have to go for the cute feminine looks first and then decide what we can do within those constraints.
>>18784 Thank you. Anyways, the parts are not from me, they're from that BJDoll I thought that I linked here: >>18710 (but didn't). From the last picrel there, here's the link: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2941323 Of course this comes with the downside that these parts might not come with the license you like to have ("created by Thingiverse user SorrowBJD, and is licensed under cc"). But aside from me being still undecided on this, I'm into working out how to have a framework where we can switch out parts anyways. My whole idea about using a cylinder to define the workspace here >>18782 was meant that way.
>>18790 OP if you're here, or if some Anon would care to bake, we need a new thread! :^)

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.

>>18693 the "sequel" is just the last 4 episodes. And people say it's better just because the plot comes to a climax and there's more action.
>>18693 I have given up on any futuristic movies from the West. It's all retarded dystopian liberal propaganda. Japanese anime seems to be the only place where we get a more optimistic outlook on the future, not to mention robowaifus. The only futuristic movies I liked that came from the West are the Blade Runner films.

>>18697 > only futuristic movies I liked that came from the West are the Blade Runner films. These are not optimistic movies, lol. Especially if you don't want your robots become independent or autonomous. And Joy is also framed negatively. Also, these are still dystopian. But you maybe like the technological development the have, and the atmosphere, tone or mood. I already pitched the Westwood game before here somewhere >>7894. In terms of better fembots you might at least like TSCC, Raised by Wolves (show canceled), Turbo Kid, and Tomorrowland (2015). That aside, the trick is to ignore the part where things go wrong with the robots and just embrace how tempting they are beforehand. Many people think so anyways. Even the child actress from M3gan said she wants a doll like her. So the negative framing doesn't really work that well on the consumer level. Maybe at scaring off developers, but still we are here.
