>"And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them."[1] >-t. Jesus Christ I propose this thread to be a narrowly-scoped discussion on the OP's topic; informed primarily by 2 Christian-themed writings, and by our own efforts & practical insights in developing robowaifus : I. In Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis asserts that all men "...have the Law of God written on their hearts."[2][3][4] This is certainly affirmed by various passages in the Holy Scriptures, as well. II. In The City of God, Aurelius Augustine of Hippo writes >"And yet they have within themselves something which they could not see: they represented to themselves inwardly things which they had seen without, even when they were not seeing them, but only thinking of them. But this representation in thought is no longer a body, but only the similitude of a body; and that faculty of the mind by which this similitude of a body is seen is neither a body nor the similitude of a body; and the faculty which judges whether the representation is beautiful or ugly is without doubt superior to the object judged of. >"This principle is the understanding of man, the rational soul; and it is certainly not a body, since that similitude of a body which it beholds and judges of is itself not a body. The soul is neither earth, nor water, nor air, nor fire, of which four bodies, called the four elements, we see that this world is composed. And if the soul is not a body, how should God, its Creator, be a body?[5][6][7] Now, starting from the fundamental basis & belief (a priori w/ no defenses given pertaining to it >tl;dr let's not descend into debate on this point, merely discuss the implications of it, kthx :^) that this immaterial, moral law inscribed on each of our hearts by God literally serves as the foundational stone for all good ethics & all good moralities out there; I'd like for us all lurkers, I'm looking at you! :^) to have a general discussion on: A) What does this all imply (and likely mean) regarding human behaviours within the general cultural/societal domain under discussion, and

Welcome to the /robowaifu/ board's project. Together, we will engineer a modular robot that will serve and provide companionship to their Anon faithfully. See picrel for details on the current design. This robot will begin with a basic maid robot then move forward towards more capable robots with functionality approaching Chii/2B/Dorothy. First goal is to have a meter tall robot which functions as a mobile server bearing an appearance that approximates her owners waifu. This should be completed by December 2022 with further major updates happening yearly until Anons can build a PersoCom class robot with relative ease and affordability.

Robowaifu Market Chuck 01/04/2023 (Wed) 14:07:33 No.18572 [Reply]
How would the robowaifu market theoretically function? Top of the line models would be very expensive, but the target demographic is poor with little income flow. It would be a hard and gradual process to replace supermodels that the wealthy have with robot wives, and a vast amount of anime supporters with wealth or status are seeking a conventional tradwife. Essentially, it’s a very high value commodity without a niche, so it would be hard for it to garner success as a product, and the intended audience would never receive their robowaifus. The robowaifu concept is excellent theoretically, but has no real avenue to thrive in practice.

I’ll leave at that Thank you, though I don't really know what you even wanted to change and still think would be possible. Somehow going for a faster mass production to make it cheaper? Creating a conglomerate? Patents? Also, I have to push back against the overused term "art". It's not about some art, it's about making stuff and learning skills. Art is in my understanding somehow about exploring the human mind. We are aiming at improving quality of life and maybe changing society through technology to some extent. These are very different things.
>>18576 >- I'm building her for myself, everything else is just audience for motivation. Political and social goals are secondary but still somewhat relevant. On second thought, I probably care more than that, I just want to frame myself as an altruist. As somewhat of a former NEET myself I can relate, but further improving my own life and changing society is somewhat more important than being motivated by improving the life of other guys. Also, let's not forget about the intellectual stimulation. As well as the stimulation of ones imagination, while thinking of making anime, porn and tradwives real.
>Horseless Carriage Market How would the horseless carriage market theoretically function? Top of the line models would be very expensive, but the target demographic is the poor urbanite with little income flow who simply is unable to afford land to put a horse out to pasture. It would be a hard and gradual process to replace the speed and reliability that the wealthy have with a horseless carriage, and a vast amount of horseless carriage supporters with wealth or status are seeking prized equestrian pass-times such as dressage, racehorses, and foxhound hunting. Essentially, it’s a very high value commodity without a niche, so it would be hard for it to garner success as a product, and the intended audience would never receive their horseless carriages.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY /ROBOWAIFU/ Robowaifu Technician Board owner 11/27/2019 (Wed) 17:27:05 No.1591 [Reply] [Last]
6th Birthday Edition greeting here: (>>17784) Well it's Thanksgiving time again and that means it's /robowaifu/s birthday time too. It's been 3 full years since we began, and this last one has been a bit of a ride tbh. With the deplatforming of 8ch all of us who had communities there were mostly left out in the cold. Thankfully we've been given a new home here in our bunkerhome at JulaynuJulay, and a few of us have found our way back together here. Hopefully the rest of us will find Julay, and /robowaifu/ again as well. We've also made some new friends since we've been here, and I think we're in pretty good shape all things considered. On the topic of deplatforming, we have a new archival system in action that keeps a copy of the board up to date on my machine. Note that my original intent was to fully automate the archive.today archives, but it hasn't worked properly (they seem to be fighting against bots pretty hard now). I hope at least one other of you will also join in for the approach that's actually working, and use BUMP to keep at least one other copy of /robowaifu/ safe in addition to my own. You never know what might happen to my gear (or even to me), and it's just smart thinking to have at least two of us keeping this board safe. My intent is to finish up the system for board migrations (along with Robi), and then bring over other things from the old files and get this board in shape again. Then we can keep it fully backed up together. As you regulars know, /robowaifu/ is basically unique among imageboards and well-deserves preservation IMO. Any other takers for doing backups as well? I just use a cronjob and it's all fully automatic daily I never have to touch it. I'll explain everything in detail how to do it if anyone else wants to participate. One other thing; should anything ever happen to Julay, just regroup on FatchanAnoncafe in our bunker-bunker there. Actually, I'm pretty upbeat about both the world of IB communities in general, and our own /robowaifu/ in particular. We all took a hard knock a few months ago, but we're back on our feet and in the fight again. Kudos in particular to both Julay and Smug for their innovations with the webring introduction. It's lent a resilience to the underlying systems for all our various communities that we've never had before afaict. This alone should help to ensure we have a long future of shitposting together anons. Anyway moving on, I hope this coming year will also see a resurgence in everyone's posts here about their personal projects. I intend to do so myself. It's always a pleasure to see Anon's efforts and blog-posts about their current attempts and ideas, regardless whether they are successes or failures. Persistence is really the single most important factor for eventual success--even more than innate talent--and so just don't quit anon! Don't be afraid to get back in the game even if you met with failure before. Try something different this time, right? Industry-wise, I think that most predictions about the ever-increasing pace of technological innovations in the areas pertinent to robowaifu production are on track. I believe this will eventually also translate into much cheaper components and other resources that we all need for our projects. AI is gradually improving and becoming more accessible for the budding software engineers among us (and the old hands too). 3D printing is still improving and becoming more widespread and a bit cheaper in general. Mechanism designs are slowly becoming better suited to cheap production techniques. Electronics of all sorts keep getting better. Materials science breakthroughs also pop up occasionally.

>>18534 Yes sir! Also Mr. Chobitsu, I have been looking into making my own robowaifu (or at least automata). Any recommendations on how to start? I thought I should just a bunch of motors then go from there. Would it be advisable to macgyver one of those arduino robot kits into a proto-robowaifu? Please, a penny for your thoughts. God bless! :]
>>18598 >Please, a penny for your thoughts. OK, but lol please don't refer to me as 'Mr. Chobitsu'. Normally IBs remain anonymous, but this board is an exception to that rule, since we're kind of like a small engineering interest of sorts. Just call me Anon for now, alright? :^) So, I'd suggest you think about what you want to do, then spend a lot of time (probably at least a week's worth for a typical newcomer) doing nothing but simply poring over the board. It's a sizeable pile of information and it's a lot to go through. Just be patient with yourself Anon, you don't have to understand everything at first. Then (and only then) I'd suggest you fill out a survey post (via >>15486, but put your response post in the current /meta, >>18173). Once you've done that, consider yourself welcome'd to the team! I'd say just join the board's community-project named MaidCom (>>15630), introduce yourself to the project lead Kiwi there, with your new board handle. I hope that helps Anon, don't hesitate to ask questions in the current /meta thread for any reason whatsoever (>>18173). Cheers! :^)
>>18598 First of all, maybe don't try to develop your own completely from the scratch, but look into what others did and what kind of small mobile robots are available outside the board. Then start with something small or improve something. A good starting point is getting a cheap 3D printer (FDM) and start learning how to model things. Another would be to learn about silicone molds. Then there are the fields of AI with sub-fields like just conversational AI, or things like electronics and motors. The later requires reducers and doesn't make much sense without knowing how to build a body. Other than that Chobitsu gave you some good links where to start.

Artificial Wombs general Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 03:11:54 No.157 [Reply] [Last]
I think we need to figure out how to fit a womb onto a waifubot. Where's the fun in having sex if you can't procreate?

Repost from a thread on /b/;
>"If you're like me and want to fuck a qt battlebot and get her pregnant, the best place to put an artificial womb is where a normal womb would be on a normal girl. The metal exterior could simply be a bunch of metal plates that unfold to allow space for the womb pod inside. The baby is probably safest inside the battlebot, and if she has good calibration then there shouldn't be problems with her falling and hurting the baby. After giving birth the metal plates could automatically fold back up again, shrinking the womb pod inside so she is combat effective again."

Well /robowaifu/? Feasible?

>>18352 its really not so simple men are great with kids, like older than toddler. Babies, not so much. I imagine if push came to shove you could bottle feed, change and care for one 24/7 but the process would drain you severely psychologically speaking. Women are much better suited for that - however with AGI and robowaifus we would have a resource that could potentially care for and nurture young infants (they did this with a chimp "robo mom" and the infant chimp did not suffer from failure to thrive and actually became attached to the surrogate "mom") anyway this concept will probably rub a lot of people the wrong way for obvious reasons, however when we reach the point where AI/artificial humanoids are as ubiquitous as smartphones it will be a non-issue. We're just thinking ahead of the curve. This is also why robowaifus need to come first, artificial wombs to follow

It's not going to happen, and when it will be happening at some point, then it will be coming step by step, at first only shortening the carrying time for pregnant women. We also will need to wait for finding out about long term effects.

I haven't explored it yet, but maybe we can look into the Gemini protocol for shitposting with our robowaifus? The globohomo won't be able to outlaw IBs on the clearnet just yet, but they already mostly have a stranglehold on the browsers themselves. Gemini is probably much better in this regard AFAICT at this early stage of research. >"Simpler – Gemini pages aren’t programs that run in your browser like most modern websites are; they’re just text with a little formatting, so there are no surprises. Once you know how one Gemini page works, you know how they all work. >Human Scale – Gemini servers and clients aren’t written by big, monopolistic software companies the way web browsers are; the DIY ethos of Gemini means that complete applications can be written by individual developers or small groups in a reasonable amount of time. That also means that you have more choices compared to web browsers. >Distraction Free – Gemini pages are text-only and have simple typography. You can view images, watch video, or listen to music over Gemini, but nothing will ever autoplay, pop over what you’re reading, or jump out of the way of your mouse. >Privacy Protecting – Every Gemini request is independent of every other, so there’s no way to track you between sites. Every site you visit is protected by the same encryption used by banking and eCommerce sites on the WWW." https://geminiquickst.art/ https://gemini.circumlunar.space/docs/faq.html Seems big if true. What think ye, /robowaifu/ ?
>>15944 BTW, this isn't just a casual interest question. If we can find a sweet spot, then this could be directly integrated with the RW Foundations suite as a much-improved/safer communications mode for our robowaifus. For example, a small mobile app that uses the protocol instead of the non-security-conscious ones could be written as well, so she could text you over the app without much by way of attack surface -- for either you or her. >*incoming WaifuText chimes* >Oniichan, I miss you! <Sorry, I'm still at work Waifu. >Please hurry Master!

Wheelchair Waifus Robowaifu Technician 05/12/2020 (Tue) 00:38:56 No.2983 [Reply] [Last]
Ideally our robowaifus would be MORE able than normal humans, but we just aren't there just yet. As we all know there are lots of engineering challenges to building a full sized robowaifu. One solution to these is to just build smaller waifus as >>2666 suggested, but I am assuming most of us don't want a short stack. My solution to the problems involved with balance, heating, and power requirements is just to give our prototype robowaifu crutches and a wheelchair. It would be much easier for our robowaifu to walk with crutches than on her own two legs and in the beginning she would probably only be able to walk short distances even with the crutches. An electric wheel chair would solve the issue of balance entirely. A wheel chair could also have a number of different systems and components mounted to it. Batteries, cooling fans, sensors, and processing units could all be mounted to the wheelchair, and we don't have to worry about the chair being pretty. A cripplebot, while not an ideal final product, would be great for prototyping designs and systems that could be used for later designs especially those relating to sensors, bot navigation, and movement. Our prototype could also be fully sized as well. What do you think /robowaifu/, should our first prototype be a cripple?

I suggested a wheelchair bound waifubot in a 4chan thread and ended up arguing with a guy who insisted it'd be better to have a robot arm mounted on a rail on the ceiling that connects to her upper back so the arm can reduce the weight on the body and be a power cable. I couldn't get him to understand that I don't want to remodel a whole goddamn house just for something that could easily be unnecessary in a few years.
>>13161 I think there are issues of personal aesthetics and taste that an anon can focus to the near-exclusion of other design and engineering issues. Even really solid and well-established principles can be 'tossed aside' with abandon at times. I'd say just let it roll off your back like water on a duck Anon. End the end, even if they have a good aesthetic going, no one 'outsmarts' the laws of physics. At least no one inside this universe does anyway, heh. :^)

Rather than focus on a full-scale robowaifu in wheelchairs, why not start with something much simpler that would let us all quickly capitalize on advance in AI/ML, while the hardware catches up to adult-sized robowaifus later? >pic-related This could also serve as a smol version of the 'rolling-screen-waifu' Ritsu, in the Visual Waifus thread's OP (>>240).
>>18365 Yeah, why not?!? Are you going to work on it? Did anyone here build a simple robot on wheels as a prototype for it?
>>18369 >Yeah, why not?!? Are you going to work on it? Did anyone here build a simple robot on wheels as a prototype for it? It's fashionable here on /robowaifu/ to begin a new thread for specific projects Anon. If you or others here would like to do this as a real project then why don't you consider starting a new thread for it? Good luck.

Datasets for Training AI Robowaifu Technician 04/09/2020 (Thu) 21:36:12 No.2300 [Reply] [Last]
Training AI and robowaifus requires immense amounts of data. It'd be useful to curate books and datasets to feed into our models or possibly build our own corpora to train on. The quality of data is really important. Garbage in is garbage out. The GPT2 pre-trained models for example are riddled with 'Advertisement' after paragraphs. Perhaps we can also discuss and share scripts for cleaning and preparing data here and anything else related to datasets. To start here are some large datasets I've found useful for training chatbots: >The Stanford Question Answering Dataset https://rajpurkar.github.io/SQuAD-explorer/ >Amazon QA http://jmcauley.ucsd.edu/data/amazon/qa/ >WikiText-103 https://blog.einstein.ai/the-wikitext-long-term-dependency-language-modeling-dataset/ >Arxiv Data from 24,000+ papers https://www.kaggle.com/neelshah18/arxivdataset >NIPS papers https://www.kaggle.com/benhamner/nips-papers >Frontiers in Neuroscience Journal Articles https://www.kaggle.com/markoarezina/frontiers-in-neuroscience-articles >Ubuntu Dialogue Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/rtatman/ubuntu-dialogue-corpus >4plebs.org data dump https://archive.org/details/4plebs-org-data-dump-2020-01 >The Movie Dialog Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/Cornell-University/movie-dialog-corpus >Common Crawl https://commoncrawl.org/the-data/

Wonder is this can be used to compress on-board data, OP? https://github.com/mhx/dwarfs
huggingface is a free model zoo: https://huggingface.co/ All you need to provide is an email address and password to sign up. Then you can build, train and deploy machine learning models. huggingface is open source and public: https://huggingface.co/docs/hub/main/en/index There are also 13 other free model zoos for deep learning and computer vision models: https://deci.ai/blog/model-zoos-deep-learning-computer-vision/
