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

>>30671 >>30667 My big wall of text above is basically using the classical/Aristotelian definition of a soul and what would be involved for simulating/recreating it for AI. I just avoid the language of Soul b/c people have so much baggage with it. Actually creating a genuine new form of life seems implausible but I can't say it's totally impossible, we have created genuine new kinds of natural things (like Styrofoam I mentioned) I don't see why things like bacteria/simple forms of life couldn't be created anew, and from there it's at least possible intelligence isn't out of the question. It could very well be impossible though. I do think the attempting to make the AI/robot sort of rely off of a single particular human soul as it's foundation for orientation is a possibility for giving it something very close to real intelligence at least practically (and it would depend on that person being very moral/rational).
only God can make a soul. God breathed into man and man became a living soul. Good luck breathing into your stupid computer program.
the human brain is not ALL doing thinking in a man. this is proven out by the fact when you die you go right on thinking as a ghost. Good luck getting your stupid computer program to go right on thinking as a ghost after you shut the computer off.

It's not possible to make anime real using Makehuman, in fact the options (for example eye size) are somewhat limited. But there's good news, don't worry! The creator of Makehuman went on to create a blender plugin called ManuelBastioniLAB which is much better (and has a much more humorous name). The plugin is easy to install and use (especially if you have a little blender experience). There are three different anime female defaults that are all pretty cute. (Pictured is a slightly modified Anime Female 2.) There are sliders to modify everything from finger length to eye position to boob size. It even has a posable skeleton. Unfortunately the anime models don't have inverse kinematic skeletons which are much easier to pose. Going forward I'm probably going to use MasturBationLABManuelBastioniLAB as the starting point for my designs. --- Saving everything with yt-dlp (>>16357, >>12247) >===

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.

Bipedal Robot Locomotion General Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 05:57:42 No.237 [Reply] [Last]
We need to talk about bipedal locomotion. It's a complicated topic but one that has to be solved if we are ever to have satisfyingly believable robowaifus. There has surely already been a lot of research done on this topic, and we need to start digging and find the info that's out there. There are some projects that have at least partial robolegs solutions working, but none that I know of that look very realistic yet. We likely won't come up with some master-stroke of genius and solve everyone's problems here on /robowaifu/, but we should at least take a whack at it who knows? We certainly can't accomplish anything if we don't try.

I personally believe we should be keeping the weight out of the extremities – including the legs – while other anons think that we should add weight to the feet for balance. What's you're ideas anon? How do we control the gait? How do we adjust for different conditions? What if our robowaifu is carrying things? What about the legs during sex? Should we focus on the maths behind MIP (Mobile Inverted Pendulum), or is there a different approach that would be more straightforward? A mixture? Maybe we can even do weird stuff like reverse-knee legs that so many animals have. Robofaun waifu anyone? What about having something like heelys or bigger wheels in the feet as well?

I'm pretty sure if we just put our heads together and don't stop trying, we'll eventually arrive at least one good general solution to the problem of creating bipedal robot legs.

The tighter 'spread' of the data points on the graph, possibly (probably) indicates a sounder, more-efficient solution to the problemspace itself, when compared to the competition. * 2. The (common) design of the actuated legs is an exemplar of one of my key design opuses (>>28664), namely: > "The designer must keep the very dense elements (such as the biggest of the actuation motors & batteries) inboard within the torso framework." These doggobots do exactly that, and is a fundamental reason this general design approach is so popular now: because it works, and it's energy-efficient. --- >exteroception Lol, that's a new one on me even though I've had the exact idea in my head for probably two decades now. :^) Top-quality post Lad.

>>29766 Thread related, an idea that didn't work very well.
>>9053 >Unfixed center of mass in design: as in "megaman" robots (and the Roll example), center of mass is drawn to the Boots, which themselves could be weighted further. (for "intimate" times the boots could be taken off to reveal more human-like feet, when sitting comfortably or lying down, etc). Somehow came up with this exact same idea yesterday or so, so I might as well voice my support for it here. Seems like it would make it easier for the robot to balance if the center of gravity was made closer to the feet, even if it makes the bot 20+ lbs heavier.
Dont really have robotics or simulation experience but cheat mode Black boots with one rubber wheel per foot to walk in a manner giving illusion of walking with feet very close to ground. This can be done with wheel mid foot for heel strike mimicking or forefoot for using the heels as a stable ground and do a forefoot walk with front wheels dragging along and heel raised. There is a few options for more on monster girl side of design such as a dragging dragon tail for extra backward support with or without a wheel in it or a monkey tail tripod leg that walks as a third smaller supportive limb There is disabled approach too such as not walking at all using a wheelchair or vehicle or walks with cane, walker or crutches. Embrace tradition reject bipedal and crawls on hands and kneeds going "nyan nyan nyan" or "wan wan wan wan" :3 bipedal but not quite human mimetic Gyroscopic balancing is an obvious option but it also will add weight and likely cant be entirely relied on but can at least help in some situations if there is room for it. Similar to OPs mention of a deer girl what about a harpy with backward bending bird legs? A bit creepy but kinda cute maybe? "bladeless" fans using air propulsion to aid in balancing. By bladeless I mean hiding the blades for safety reasons. This has obvious down side of increased noise and likely is not that energy efficient.

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?

But what’s so unusual about this decision is that the judges ended up giving opinions on technology that hasn’t been fully invented.
This is about as unrealistic as you can get. Artificial wombs might be possible in future but likely not before fetal transplant develops and it won't be something mobile. Even with artificial wombs and if you can start from the beginning of the process you still need eggs and you aren't likely picking those up at the market. At that point you are just essentially doing a surrogate pregnancy with some uknown girl. >>24847 >>24849 >That's a lot of money to cope and seethe over poor life choices. Womb transplants are done for women that lost their womb from surgery because of cancer but want to birth a child or another child. It's very rare because it is a high risk surgery and the womb has to be removed later because it can become necrotic. There has been some successful pregnancies after womb transplants but it really can't be viewed as any way relevant to artificial wombs. >>28810 >Only the recent ancestors, the looks (phenotype), and the self-identification with a group based on that, is what matters. Genotype is what influences phenotype. Phenotype is also influenced by environment. Together this is known as epigenetics. Genotypes can tell you about inheritable illnesses and predispositions to develop something later under right conditions. If you only are speaking of ethnicity or race or more generally ancestry then ethnic groups are more cultural groups built around things like shared language and so on and racial groups are not equivalent to genetic population clusters. Might want to point out babies can have their eye colour and hair colour change to be different from how it looked when they were born, this commonly happens.

Covert Ops Robowaifus Robowaifu Technician 03/11/2024 (Mon) 00:08:27 No.30233 [Reply]
I made this thread as an alternative to the existing battle droid waifu thread because I wanted to discuss actually plausible robowaifu combatives and not just post pictures of cool looking battle droid waifus without regard for realism. But every development path I tried led to something more like a special ops commando or assassin droid than a stereotypical battlemech. This is because most robowaifu enthusiasts will not be able to get their hands on military-grade weapons for legal and financial reasons. But an assassin droid doesn't need a lot of weaponry or armor. What will follow here is the best way to develop a fighting robowaifu that you can afford, according to me. Pic related; it's a robowaifu commando that I made using the AI art generator on NightCafe. >General design The best weapon focus for a robowaifu is undoubtedly guns. Guns are the easiest weapons to train humans to use and this will hold true for robots. It's also likely that robowaifus will be petite on average, both for affordability's sake and because that's what a lot of guys like. This will mean that she will have difficulty using martial arts. You can give her some supplemental training in grappling, the martial arts focus best suited to deal with larger opponents, but grappling fails against multiple opponents. Striking is the best for dealing with multiple opponents and short waifus are not good strikers. This is why the best bet is to equip her with incapacitating gadgets like tasers or tear gas instead of trying to have her fight normally. Also note that it will be far easier to program her to use a shield than a weapon - actually more like a pair of armguards to save weight. She can block most bullets using the armguards, but impact weapons will break through her guard. >Weapon selection When I made the OP picture, I asked for a handgun, a revolver and a pair of revolvers, but no matter what I tried, it just does not seem to understand the concept of pistols. But I realized that what it was giving me might be better than what I asked for. The way it has the drawing now renders her gun as a shoulder mount. I originally wanted to give a robowaifu dual pistols and have her fight with gun-fu Trinity-style, but this is much harder to program than a shoulder gun. A shoulder gun doesn't rely on complex hand movements which will have to be motion-captured and it would be quicker on the draw. As for which model of gun to use, you want something light and concealable that doesn't require too much ammo because ammo will weigh down your robowaifu, so rifles are right out, contrary to the lies of the picture. You also want the gun to not have too much recoil because your waifu is light and can't shoot the gun accurately if its recoil is too strong, so don't get a shotgun either. A heavy pistol like a Desert Eagle most likely gets the nod here for being small, light and powerful; you don't necessarily need a large-caliber handgun, but it will give her some armor piercing ability as heavy pistol rounds can be more powerful than intermediate cartridges at short range. Unfortunately these guns tend to have strong recoil. Other gun options: >Bullpup P90-looking large-caliber handgun (nobody has actually made this yet) >Needle/flechette gun for lower recoil and better armor penetration (needlers are less accurate and somewhat less effective against flesh than armor though) >Straight-up pew pew space blasters; your waifu is too small to have a decently powered laser, so try a pellet-shooting rail handgun or particle beam instead Other shoulder weapon possibilities: >Active Denial System (microwave cannon, sound cannon, seizure-inducing strobe lights, etc.) >Harpoon gun >Javelins

Pinker defines language as ambiguous, and he believes that this ambiguity leads to the separation of words, meanings, and thoughts. He explores examples of what does and does not qualify as language, and demonstrates differences in sentence structure, dialects, pronouns, and meanings. The lecture concludes with audience questions. https://youtu.be/eOUKcAFa_HQ It's difficult to make notes while listening to something and not having something to write at hand, but I try to do that, since otherwise I forget the important parts. Some takeaways for our use case here: - important to realize that not all our thoughts are based on words but some come for example from imagine an image. - words are just suggestions that call trains of thought to mind, which need to be interpolated. There are assumed premises which are not expressed in the language itself. - special faculty of the mind, not general intelligence. - reading and writing are separate. - humans have some inborn way to create a language, children seem to reinvent the language based on what they hear and interactions. Learn a sense of how the grammar works and then go from there. - meanings and thoughts are separate from words - high school seniors have 60k words in their dictionary. - the order in phrases is important to convey the meaning (e.g. who did what to whom). - 100 trillion million sentences with 20 words or less. - languages are infinitely big.
