Is the desire for one's own waifubot a legitimate personal expression or simply yet another one of the many new psychoses stemming from First World problems?

I think it's beautiful how you can spot obvious and clear parallels between the Pygmalion and Galatea myth and robowaifu technicians. Sometimes I wonder if those ancient Greeks would have been able to notice it as well.

>>25933 theres also those orange goo lubricants you see in tiny motors for electronics like in toothbrushes, i dont know what it actually is but its definetly not dry or oil based its some goop that doesnt move no matter what but if you put an oil based lubricant on it its completely ruined
>>25935 also kinda off topic but this has annoyed me since forever but what the hell gives wd40 its smell???? is it something they fking add intentionally cuz i swear if someone used wd40 on anything i can tell just by the smell its so damn distinct
>>25929 That might be good. I'm still working out the best way to go about things, but the shoulders in particular would go well with this, since the current concept has them as large disks (by necessity, since I've just about settled on mounting the motors directly to the shoulders, instead of deeper in the torso). Cutting out strips of HDPE and gluing them on there would be easy. >>25933 >no-lube If I go that approach, then tension-held ball joints won't really be an option anymore (I know I mentioned hinges, but I was planning on putting them where ball joints wouldn't work). The reason I want ball-joints is to simplify the joint design and decrease the number of parts (at the cost of precision, which is acceptable for me). I'll consider it. Switching back to hinges for the legs won't be a marrive problem, but I'll have to completely redesign the head base into something more complicated if I abandon the ball jointed approach there. >>25936 They might be using an additive, much like how gas companies will dope propane (which has no odor) to give it that distinct smell so you can tell if there's a gas leak. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there's some law saying that potentially dangerous industrial chemicals have to come with a strong and repulsive smell. In fact, some of those aerosol cans might have propane in them, since propane is a common refridgerant.
>>25938 >Cutting out strips of HDPE and gluing them on there would be easy. HDPE is really hard to glue but it will melt in a regular oven. Make a mold and you can shape them however you want. Make a socket with tabs to hold it in place. Take your time to let it melt into place and don't burn it. To make a mold you could use paper mache or modeling clay to make a positive. Then cover with plaster of paris for the mold to melt the HDPE in to. use a little Vaseline or olive oil for release. You could do this real cheap.
>>25938 >tension-held ball joints won't really be an option anymore With HDPE melted in a mold you couldmake some steel wire frame supports that are comletely covered by the plastic. The wire provides support but HDPE is really strong by itself. Make the socket in pieces so it is clamped on the ball.

I would define a robowaifu as a doll with robotic features. However there are many different types of dolls (BJD, cloth doll, sex doll, etc). A doll has a skin or surface material, sometimes a filler (cotton), and sometimes internal structure (bones and joints).

Continuing the discussion from (((>>2831 >>2836 todo:relink))) , I want to create a thread to explore the many possible surface materials for a waifu (robo or no). The most important decision is whether to use a hard or soft material.

Hard Materials
>3D Printed Hard Plastic (PLA/ABS)
>Injection Molded Hard Plastic

Soft Materials
>Natural Fabrics (Cotton, Silk, Wool)
>Synthetic Fabrics (Vinyl, Polyester, Nylon)
>Fur/Hair (presumably synthetic, inb4 yiff in hell)
>Silicone or TPE Rubber (TPE is basically a cheaper form of silicone)

I'm strongly biased against the hard materials for comfort reasons. Personally, I have a hard time seeing myself falling in love with something hard, but others on this board talk about using hard materials, so I'm trying to keep an open mind.

My preference is for silicone, but there are four big problems with it. Firstly, it's expensive. Secondly, it impedes modification after the silicone has set. Thirdly, it contributes to the uncanny valley/silicone slut issue. Fourthly, it is heavy, and this weight really constrains the skeleton, posablity, and probably robotics. Because of the weight, silicone dolls have heavy-duty skeletons.

My second choice is therefore fabric, presumably stuffed with cotton. Fabric is super comfy, and has no uncanny valley issue. A non-fuggable fabric doll or robot would have no stigma issue, and could be the start of a productive hobbyist scene with plenty of females. Fabric is extremely lightweight which could be a plus or a minus. By itself, its unsubstantial and not ideal for robotics. A fabric robot is possible, but it requires hard, heavy parts underneath to provide structure and as actuators, which would make it less comfy. The fabric could be a textile (cotton), a synthetic leather (resembles skin, makeup/dress-up potential), or synthetic fur for you furfags out there.

Another possibility is a hard vinyl BJD-like doll with a layer of something comfy on top. Alternately, you all can reject my comfort autism if the benefits of having a hard doll/robot are clear enough. I'd like to hear others make the case for a hard doll/robot, since I don't think I could do the argument justice.

Finally, this is a discussion, not a debate. There are multiple paths we could take, and I'm sure different robowaifuists will try different techniques to see what works and what doesn't. I'm more interested in seeing what options are on the table than shutting down any particular approach.

It's extremely skilled in developing coherent humanlike responses that make sense and I believe it has massive potential, it also never gives the same answer twice. >GPT-2 generates synthetic text samples in response to the model being primed with an arbitrary input.

In addition, GPT-2 outperforms other language models trained on specific domains (like Wikipedia, news, or books) without needing to use these domain-specific training datasets. Also the current public model shown here only uses 345 million parameters, the "full" AI (which has over 4x as many parameters) is being witheld from the public because of it's "Potential for abuse". That is to say the full model is so proficient in mimicking human communication that it could be abused to create new articles, posts, advertisements, even books; and nobody would be be able to tell that there was a bot behind it all. <AI demo: talktotransformer.com/ <Other Links: github.com/openai/gpt-2 openai.com/blog/better-language-models/ huggingface.co/

Might be extremely ghetto for your collective liking but assuming your onna and member are reasonable fit only thing it lacks to be basically inflation pump is escape valve/rubber flap. I fitted my past fleshlights with very simple escape valve and got such crazy suction on pullout i had to scratch around seal to leak some air back in. If oyu wanted to do activelly to maintain some level of sub atm pressure you could use those small air pump (underpowered so it wouldn't be so noisy) or some big slow cylindrical reciprocating pump. Obviously with mototrized set-up as you need to vent that air out you should include some liquidtrap so your bot won't spray lube and babybatter all over the place. You may even pump that back into vagoo if you're willing to.

Most of the machines discussed so far appear to be derivatives (or copies) of the Venus 2000, now Venus For Men, the grand-daddy of vacuum masturbators. Originally selling for $2K it's now in the mid $900s. Still one of the best machines (according to reviews) because of its price many people have built their own versions. It uses what looks like a large stepper motor to work a diaphragm pump via two right angle drives. It is variable speed and variable intensity by regulating air "leakage" if I understand it correctly. It can also be operated in "edge" (random?) mode. It connects via a 1200mm hose to a transparent plastic "receiver" tube that has a latex liner. Accurately sizing the receiver for the owner seems to be very important to good performance. It looks like the wide variety of potential customer sizes necessitated using a large diaphragm, and this has caused many builders to use a toilet bowl plunger for their pumps when a more custom fit would allow for a much smaller one. See the videos below for more details and a couple of manual units that could be built and adapted more easily. All of the videos are unrestricted and do not require login except fore part 2 of the teardown series and parts 3 and 4 of the Home Made Masturbator series.

Philosophers interested in building an AGI? pygmalion 06/26/2021 (Sat) 00:53:09 No.11102 [Reply] [Last]
Why is it that no philosophers are interested in building an AGI? we need to change this, or at least collect relevant philosophers. discussion about philosophy of making AGI (includes metaphysics, transcendental psychology, general philosophy of mind topics, etc!) also highly encouraged! Ill start ^^! so the philosophers i know that take this stuff seriously: Peter Wolfendale - the first Neo-Rationalist on the list. his main contribution here is computational Kantianism. just by the name you can tell that he believes Kant's transcendental psychology has some important applications to designing an artificial mind. an interesting view regarding this is that he thinks Kant actually employed a logic that was far ahead of his time (and you basically need a sophisticated type theory with sheaves to properly formalize). Other than that he also thinks Kant has interesting solutions to the frame problem, origin of concepts, and personhood. CONTACTS: He has a blog at https://deontologistics.co/, and also has posted some lectures on youtube like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWDZyOWN4VA&ab_channel=deontologistics Reza Negarestani - this is another Neo-Rationalist. he has written a huge work (which I haven't read yet ;_;) called "Intelligence and Spirit". It's massive and talks about various grades of general intelligence. this includes sentient agents, sapient agents, and Geist. this guy draws from Kant as well, but he also builds on Hegel's ideas too. his central thesis is that Hegel's Geist is basically a distributed intelligence. he also has an interesting metaphilosophy where he claims that the goal of philosophy is the construct an AGI. like other Neo-Rationalists, he heavily relies on the works of Sellars and Robert Brandom Recc: Ray Brassier (recent focuses) - I dont think he is working on artificial general intelligence, but his work on Sellars, and in particular rule following is very insightful! Hubert Dreyfus - Doesn't quite count, but he did try to bring Heidegger to AGI. He highlighted the importance of embodiment to the frame problem and common sense knowledge. I personally think Bergson might have explicated what he wanted to achieve but better, though that guy is like way before AI was even a serious topic, lol. Murray Shanahan - This guy has done some extra work on the frame problem following Dreyfus. His solution is to use global workspace theory and parralel processing of different modules. Interesting stuff! Barry Smith - Probably the most critical philosopher on this list. He talks about the requisite system dynamics for try strong AI, and concludes that our current methods simply don't cut it. One of the key stressing points he points out here with a colleague is that our current AI is Markovian when fleshed out chat dialogue would be a non-Markovian task (you can find the arxiv link of his criticism here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.05833). He also has knowledge on analytic ontology (and amongst other thing has some lectures about emotion ontology). I think his main genius however is in coming up with a definition of intelligence that puts a lot of the problems with our current approaches into context (which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith) CONTACTS: He has a yt channel here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith

It's entirely conceivable this type of approach could help our researchers 'use AI to help build better AI'. In programmer's parlance, this is vaguely similar to 'eating your own dogfood' but with the potential for automated, evolutionary, self-correcting design trajectories. At least that's my theory in the matter! :^) Fifth Paradigm in Science: A Case Study of an Intelligence-Driven Material Design [1] >abstract >"Science is entering a new era—the fifth paradigm—that is being heralded as the main character of knowledge integrating into different fields to intelligence-driven work in the computational community based on the omnipresence of machine learning systems. Here, we vividly illuminate the nature of the fifth paradigm by a typical platform case specifically designed for catalytic materials constructed on the Tianhe-1 supercomputer system, aiming to promote the cultivation of the fifth paradigm in other fields. This fifth paradigm platform mainly encompasses automatic model construction (raw data extraction), automatic fingerprint construction (neural network feature selection), and repeated iterations concatenated by the interdisciplinary knowledge (“volcano plot”). Along with the dissection is the performance evaluation of the architecture implemented in iterations. Through the discussion, the intelligence-driven platform of the fifth paradigm can greatly simplify and improve the extremely cumbersome and challenging work in the research, and realize the mutual feedback between numerical calculations and machine learning by compensating for the lack of samples in machine learning and replacing some numerical calculations caused by insufficient computing resources to accelerate the exploration process. It remains a challenging of the synergy of interdisciplinary experts and the dramatic rise in demand for on-the-fly data in data-driven disciplines. We believe that a glimpse of the fifth paradigm platform can pave the way for its application in other fields." 1. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095809923001479 >>24646 Thanks Anon. Yes, we've discussed so-called 'Mouse Utopia' and other sociological phenomenon involved with the rise of feminism, here before now. I doubt not there is some validity to the comparisons. However as a believing Christian, I find far more substantial answers in the Christian Bible's discussions about the fallen nature of man in general. There are also arrayed a vast number of enemies -- both angelic and human -- against men (males specifically), that seek nothing but our downfall. /robowaifu/, at least in my view of things, is one response to this evil situation in the general sense; with tangible goals to assist men to thrive in this highly-antagonistic environment we all find ourselves within. And almost ironically... robowaifus can potentially even help these so-called 'Foids' become more as they were intended by God to be -- in the end -- as well I think (by forcing them back to a more realistic view of their individual situations, less hindered by the Globohomo brainwashing they're seemingly all so mesmerized by currently. To wit: self-entitlement and feminism). :^) >===

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.

>>15733 'sus trip there anon. Considering us arthropod enthusiasts are gonna have to build our own platform what would be IYHO around the right size for bug part of many legged house bot? I have waited for oportunity to post this since 2015. (Further spider girl talk; >>25617)

>>25365 reminds me of the spider that looks like a bird, it walks weird with its legs tilted forward, probably because of the extra weight of its bird head
>>25588 LOL your gif (and a coughing fit and tears), and that is one of the milder models. You may not want to look at the pics. They are all fakes, but... >>25589 If I do try building an arachne-bot I'll certainly post the details in the monster-grill thread. In this case since I was answering Podolek's question I wanted to post in the same thread and thought it would be acceptable since there was no objection to his post or >>23566. I'd say to give it a week for him to see it and then move my post to the Monster-grill thread. It could use a bump.
>>25592 >You may not want to look at the pics AUUUUUUUUGH!! :DDD (Kiwi here, I tidied up the thread. I hope I didn't delete too much.) >If I do try building an arachne-bot I'll certainly post the details in the monster-grill thread. Good luck Anon! :^) >>25599 >In that case why don't I just copy/paste the same post in monster-grill but spoiler the spider-bjd pic? Problem solved and you can delete the post here to save board space. Sounds great Anon, yea I agree with Kiwi on this. Please copypasta anything else on this ITT, over to the monstergrill thread thanks. :^)

Robowaifu Propaganda and Recruitment Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 05:39:42 No.2705 [Reply] [Last]
Attention drawfags and writefags! Your skills will be needed. The task of building and designing a robowaifu is a herculean quest. As great as this community is, /robowaifu/ simply does not have the manpower to real our goal of DIY robowaifus. Luckily for us there are several communities on the internet that we could find new recruits or allies to help us build our waifus: MGTOW - These guys know all about the legal pitfalls of marriage and the dangers of feminism. There is already a lot of talk about sex robots in MGTOW communities. It shouldn't be a hard sell to get them to come here. Incels - Guys that can't get laid. The opportunity for love and companionship should be enough to bring some of these guys over. We need to be careful when recruiting from some of their communities. We don't want to attract negative attention. Monster girls/furry/mlp fandoms - The only way these guys are going to be able to have their harpy/elf/goblin/anthro/pony/whatever gf is with a robowaifu. They have an interest in seeing us succeed. Again we need to be careful here not to attract the wrong kind of people that will bring us the wrong kind of attention. Male STEM students - Generally these guys aren't going to get laid until after they have established themselves. A robowaifu could really help them. This may be a harder sell because many of them have been brainwashed in university, but they have skills that we could really use. Transhumanists/biohackers - Many of the technologies involved in building a robowaifu could be used in transhumanist or biohacking applications such as building an avatar. They may have some interest in helping us out. We will need to be careful which transhumanist communities we go after as many of them are full of feminism, tumblr tier sexualities and genders, and SJW's. Cyberpunks and technophiles - These guys (and they are usually guys) are all around into technology and may just enjoy working on the kinds of projects we need to do. They are often into programming and AI.

Reposting from other thread. So I know it’s a shot in the dark but have any of you thought about reaching out to clubs/people who are interested in robotics? I’m kinda lonely lately and I’d like some robo buddy with me. Anyone got some experience to share?
>>25497 is that even a thing, i only remember an after school activity at my school, it was supposed to be robotics with those programmable legos but once were in the computer lab, after school, it became a cs1.6 party no one gave a shit about legos
>>25497 >Anyone got some experience to share? I used a Lego Mindstorms kit years ago to show others some basic robotics stuff to other guys in school. A couple of them were interested, most weren't.
>>25497 Unless you live in a big city, I wouldn’t hold much hope for an organized club (assuming you’re post-college-age). I’ve heard that cities tend to have “Maker-Spaces” or whatnot, and some of em have clubs/focus groups, but I don’t have any experience there. That said, my experience in both HS and college was a bit disappointing. Probably only 25% of the people had any real interest in robotics, and of those, less than half had either the talent or the determination to do something serious with them. The rest were, as my mentor would have said, “groupies”— people who only wanted to “network” or pad out their applications/CV, instead of actually making stuff Now, for less pessimistic, more actionable stuff: - Drone hobbyist clubs might be your best bet— there are bound to be a few guys DIY’ing. It’ll give you pretty lopsided lessons on robotics (rel focus), but the fundamental concepts and understanding of physics will transfer over just fine, and it’s great introduction to control systems (I’m assuming you’re somewhat new to the field; my apologies if it’s otherwise) - Mechanics-oriented “clubs” (they tend to be informal, often competition-centric) are also helpful for this sort of thing (if you’re aiming to learn mech or intro elec engineering), like racing or flying. Lots of very knowledgeable people in these groups, but you need to either have $$$$$, connections, or a particularly uncommon skill (or a really high CHR stat, but I know nothing of that). A lot of the guys there are more than happy to talk about their specialties, provided the other person shows interest AND can show they understand what they’re being told (the latter tends to be more important lol) Those are really the only experiences I have to offer— if you find something better, by all means, let us know— a lot of us are probably looking for the same thing. >>25503 Those things were pretty great. Sure, their “programming” was a joke, but that sort of trial-and-error is great for learning spatial reasoning and application-oriented design. Shame they haven’t changed much over the years— the kits I saw coworkers’ children playing with looked almost identical to the sets I used over a decade ago.
>>25503 >>25515 Thanks for the tips guys. Like I said I just want to find some new comrades in this grand quest.
