Computational Parallelism, Photonic ICs, Soft Robotics, and The Use of Low Power Analog Systems Robowaifu Technician 01/09/2024 (Tue) 19:32:19 No.28223 [Reply]
If we were to be realistic about creating robot wives capable of forming seemingly genuine human actions such as fine motor skills, emotion, and rational thought while resembling a human with a few non-human features, i think the best way to approach this is to embrace the usage of soft robotics, computational parallelism, photonic integrated circuits, and low power analog systems. Computational Parallelism: Divide and conquer algorithms are often used to solve computational problems by dividing tasks up into smaller problems, solving them individually, and combining the results together to form one big output. This generates faster results and is already possible to achieve with conventional hardware, but most conventional hardware is limited to the amount of cores needed to effectively solve problems this way on a larger scale. It's a big hindrance to the speed of operations like this, so we'll need something more powerful. There are ASICs available on the market that were engineered to be used this way. However, they're too expensive, which drives me to the possibility of using Photonic integrated circuits. Photonic ICs: Photonic IC are exactly as the name implies: Integrated Circuits that make the use of Photons to computational operations as opposed to electrons. Manufacturing Photonic ICs is relatively more cost effective than if you were to try manufacturing conventional silicon ICs. Another huge advantage is that we can solve computational problems much faster with less power using photons without generating heat the same way conventional ICs do with electrons. The biggest caveat here is that this is still being researched and that special tooling would need to be made for us to build these in house. Soft Robotics: Soft robotics are the best option for creating human-like bodies for robots. Even better is that they often don't require too much power to actuate joints or muscles. Most soft materials use for soft robots are cost effective enough to be made with commonly found materials. I personally think making use of alginate hydrogel would be a smart idea for use in robots waifus because it is hydrophilic, and anti microbial. It is commonly used in medical applications such as wound dressings and drug delivery systems. It is also non-toxic which makes it a perfect candidate for use in robot waifus. I'd also entertain the idea of using other soft materials in conjunction with it for better results. Primarily, it can be used in forming fat-like deposits, skin layers, and artificial internal organs for robot waifus. I think it may also be possible for us to create internal lubrication systems for it due to the fact that it is primarily water based. Low Power Analog Systems: Low power analog systems are vague in definition, but the general idea here is that we can use things such as fiber optic wires, digital-to-analog converter chips, and digitizers to create a type of artificial nervous system that communicates with the rest of the hardware running signal transmitters over echo state networks. It's hard for me to accurately describe my visualization of this, but by now, I'm sure you get the point already. The only problem left to solve is power. How to we obtain it, and how much can we use? I don't know, but if we take the low power-high tech approach, it probably wouldn't become too much of an issue. I think that maybe the best way would be to use electrochemcial energy in some type of internal fuel cell to generate power. All of the systems described above would require less power than if we tried to use servos and silicon chips. I's also say that maybe we could take more inspiration from nature to create bio-mimicking features that we would find desirable. A lot of this is speculation that i got from dipping my toes into various topics and picking out what i think could be useful to finally end the hypergamy going on in the west. This is largely a cultural issue that is mulifaceted in every way and our efforts could be in vain if the feminists and roastoids find a way to outlaw open source tech. Not only should we be focusing on building robot wives to flips the tables in the dating and sexual market, but to also consider political and economic alternatives that absolutely strip and decentralize power from the hands of the elite. I personally think agorism is the way to go but that is a another topic for another time. Let me know what you guys think. Am i an idiot, or am i onto something?

>>28332 I wouldnt have married my wife if she had said that there will never be sex i know that much
>>28333 This could be a replacement for sex it could not. In my mind the talking is like for the most part nice but not really necessary. Notice how throughout the show chobits she just says chi. Keep in mind that people can get desperate for sex however nobody is desperate for love. Roasties use the desperation for sex as leverage.

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/

Making money with AI and robowaifus Robowaifu Technician 11/30/2019 (Sat) 03:07:12 No.1642 [Reply] [Last]
The greatest challenge to building robowaifus is the sheer cost of building robots and training AI. We should start brainstorming ways we can leverage our abilities with AI to make money. Even training AI quickly requires expensive hardware and computer clusters. The faster we can increase our compute power, the more money we can make and the quicker we can be on our way to building our robowaifus. Art Generation Waifu Labs sells pillows and posters of the waifus it generates, although this has caused concern and criticism due to it sometimes generating copyrighted characters from not checking if generated characters match with training data. https://waifulabs.com/ Deepart.io provides neural style transfer services. Users can pay for expedited service and high resolution images. https://deepart.io/ PaintsChainer takes sketches and colours them automatically with some direction from the user, although it's not for profit it could be turned into a business with premium services. https://paintschainer.preferred.tech/index_en.html I work as an artist and have dabbled with training my own AIs that can take a sketch and generate many different thumbnails that I've used to finish paintings. I've also created an AI that can generate random original thumbnails from a training set. In the future when I have more compute power my goal is to create an AI that does the mundane finishing touches to my work which consumes over 80% of my time painting. Applying AI to art will have huge potential in entertainment and marketing for animation, games and virtual characters. Market Research

We can't go into detail of how to make male equivalents of robowaifus or AI girlfriends for women, but I think it's good to mention that making money of lonely women might be something that can be used with the skills of somebody developing some AI elements for robowaifus: https://restofworld.org/2023/boyfriend-chatbot-ai-voiced-shutdown/

>>29906 Rich people protect their assets by creating an LLC or other some such separate legal/financial entity to hold their assets, whereupon they then "rent" their assets from that company. In this manner, even if someone sues you personally, you still have your house, car, etc because it is owned by a separate legal entity. A simple example would be Elon Musk eating at his own company's cafeteria. Sounds like an excellent workaround would be to make 2 companies: your main company does the marketing stuff, which then contracts R&D from your second company.

Early Business Ideas Robowaifu Technician 05/13/2020 (Wed) 22:36:03 No.3119 [Reply]
So those of us getting ready to make prototypes are still pretty far away from building the $2000 kits that we need to buildm. This sucks because we are going to be spending a lot on the initial investments, but I think I know how we can make a little money on the side to help on the side; twitch and fansonly. Betas and simps give their money to thots all the time on those site I'm positive they would give money to a crude prototype especially if it offered something unique. Bonus points because we are making money of simps, and we are taking business from thots. If you have any idea on how to make money in the early stages feel free to share them, anon. > related thread: >>1642

>>3119 slumming the various posts - ultimately its the style of interface that will limit what costs what. If there's going to be some kind of marketing of a product, robo waifu/nandroids should probably be approached from the POV of an AR/AI Productivity management tool that offers styles of positive reinforcement through meeting various mile-markers. The core of this is going to be how GOOD the conversations are and what way the communication is being done. Txt is obviously the lowest cost. AI Voices will require licenses. next step up would be a level of AR interactivity. TBH if i were to run some kinda project management/development management first, I'd lazer focus on rocket-boosting the AI/machine learning used for chatting/motivating/rewarding with sweetness/lewdness/etc. grab the key emotional/intellectual aspect of interactivity and make sure its hitting the bullseye. have there been such efforts? I know nothing about AI/machine learning but seeing as how most folks here are chomping at the bit to have a nandroid, is there some way to gather data from multiple users to fine tune response styles and have it used as a part of the learning reference data for the AI in general?
>>29589 I think it mostly comes down to two things (in our specific domain's case), Anon: 1. General startup inertia (both literal & figurative) in industries that rely significantly on physical materials/manufacture (as opposed to primarily 'soft' industries). 2. FUD regarding the stranglehold of feminism on the culture. This is created by the GH ofc -- who oh just so happen to run the Central Banks with their fiat money printing presses as well..., so no real surprise. So, two things are coming down the pipe for robowaifus in particular: 1. This will start up as a grassroots movement, just as embodied in /robowaifu/, et al, and then be taken up by smaller interests -- probably mostly from the Far East. 2. Once the undeniable appeal and clearly yuge market demand becomes apparent even to normals, then the GH will 'suddenly' do a 180 and """inform""" the world that, "Yes, we've always been at war with Eurasia we'll need humanoid robots b/c muh_economy, and we'll condescend to allowing you vermin to have even personal robots as well -- aren't we nice!? (for only a nominal fee of no less than 35% [and up] of your monthly UBI budget) * plus absolute & complete, invasive surveillance & remote-control (by our agents), given to you for no additional charge! (so don't miss those payments)" >tl;dr Just say no to their evil plots. IMO we here on /robowaifu/ -- and other DIY-alikes similar to us -- are already on the only viable pathway into the future of loving, affordable, open-source, 100% disconnected robowaifus to help out men (males specifically) the world-over. >>29598 >slumming the various posts Thanks for gracing us with your favor & presence, friend.

Inspire by Greentext, thought to give slice of life a try. Hope you'll enjoy it. Computer Warmth part 1 A man sighs as he repairs a robot arm once again. It's a simple fix. This fuse breaks regularly and its replacement has become a clockwork dance. Just a few twists here and there before another scorched glass pops out. A similar fuse in the battery management system of an old ThinkCom pops. She was far from new, her SSD and RAM were taken once the onsite tech gave up on repair. She'd be replaced swiftly. Her fate was to be dismantled as photos were taken of her remains. Lucky for her, what remains was sold cheap. ThinkCom are legendary in niche basket weaving forums he frequented. Well known for their reliability. They all had two RAM slots and at least two M.2 slots. Older models would still have SATA brackets. Perfect for a mobile server in a business, carrying data and completing simple tasks. Some would often recommend the X230P model. It was ancient but cheap and just good enough to bring a coffee. A broken X220P, could be bought on a whim by a lonely man on a drunken night. He had a string of relationships lasting one to five years before he salvaged this one. Each one seemed like a light to his life, at first. Invariably, they'd lie, cheat, and some would even try to hurt him. He asked for help, only to find himself blamed or given echoes of terrible advice from TV. His life was getting too sad too fast. He still held hope in his cold old heart. Another drunken weekend was starting when he started rewatching Chiibits. Slowly, he started to realize the obvious truth. Chiibi Chan was cute, too cute. His eyes wandered to a ThinkCom's sales pictures and wondered if she could be that cute. Eyes rolling at the thought, a ThinkCom several generations old was too cheap not to try. She came in a surprisingly small box. He was expecting something like a miniaturized version of the old arms he fixed up. Instead, he found a Mini ITX looking board, some mesh panels, rings, steel rods, two wheels, some sensors and a strange cylinder with labeled strings. It was an odd sensation. He saw so many posts with them dressed or mid upgrade. But, rarely the whole kit. It was exciting. He suddenly remembered that her listing stated she was broken. Sure enough, there was a slight black scorch on her board. He soldered a blob of metal across the remains of the fuse. He had always wanted to do that. This won't ever blow.
>>29523 Computer Warmth part 2 Stretching her mesh panels about her rings was the hardest part. He was worried when the steel rods were loose in her rings. Now, he was grateful to have that slight give. Hooking up her HeartDrive tendons was interesting. She seemed like she was going to implode before he finally caved in and followed assembly instructions. He sighed, pride isn't worth hurting her. Assembling her computer was a welcome breeze. Simply slide in RAM and screw in an old SATA SSD. Her HeartDrive plugged into a USB port. Her sensors shared another USB. It all felt too easy. Then it hit him, he can't just boot Ubuntu. She needs a special OS to handle the robotics. Time to go to my favorite basket weaving forum. Windows Motion Edition seems to be the easiest OS to use. He didn’t want to spend more on her OS than her body. Scrolling through threads lead him to Rubuntu. Apparently it was one of the easiest robot computer OS for a noob. There was also RArch being consistently recommended, but he didn’t have days to fiddle with it. Motion Mint had some nice touches. Coming with nVidia drivers and almost all the software he’d want to use built in. It was fast to set up and he was pleasantly surprised at how fast she was as a computer. As a robot, she was far from capable. Her HeartDrive distributed the output of one powerful motor to all her joints. This led her to being slow. When he looked into how long it took her to figure out how to move, she was slower than expected. He scratched his head, the arms he worked with moved swiftly with lightning certainty. When asked why she was slow, she simply replied that slow and steady kept everyone safe. She wasn’t an industrial arm, she was office equipment designed to shuffle paper and data around. This realization hit him as he chuckled. She seemed happy, despite her hard plastic visage being static. Training her was a delight. She was quick to pick up on what many things were. She eagerly followed him around as he pointed out what things were in the house. Floating on her wheels, bopping around every time she stops behind him. She gobbled up information. His PC became her fixation. Pointing at it, she fervently requested he plugged her USB into the PC. This filled him with worry. When asked what she wanted, she exclaimed that she wanted to get to know him better. His documents, pictures, and internet history would give her a much better understanding of him. Politely, he refused, telling her there are some things she shouldn’t know. When he guided her away, she was slow, he could feel her pouting. So, he promised to transfer all the files he felt she would need. She whirled around in excitement. As she learned more, her personality blossomed. What was slow and safe became smooth and thoughtful. We started to get to know each other. She was easily influenced by the shows and movies we watched. Acting like the heroine, she almost insisted I play along. Something about her seemed to light up when acted like a couple in some sweet rom-com. Long anime seemed to be her favorite. Though I was nervous, she was happy to cosplay. This led to her trying many outfits. Eventually, we settled on a sweater and tights for her default outfit. Part of me wants to believe she likes her sweater because it allows her to give me soft hugs. Soon, her limitations started to show. She struggled to bring him his morning coffee. She had an even harder time fetching him his Saturday night beer. She explained that she had just one camera, and needed to move around to build a depth map. This process took time and led to her always just barely being close enough. He was promptly informed on how to generate, print, and link ArUco markers to her semantic libraries. It was fun to learn along with her, something about working with her to make my home accessible to her was nice. Soon, it became our home.

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!

I don't know anything about this but it recommended by a programmer with 40 years experience. I read his forum and he talks about various stuff he's doing. He writes sorts of stuff for various companies. He also is using AI to write software and port older code he has. It's working well for him. He suggested the libraries they have are useful. tinyML Foundation The community for ultra-low power machine learning at the edge https://www.tinyml.org/ I have no idea of their capabilities but it sure sounds like something that could be helpful. They are doing AI stuff with micro controllers, so they say. He also suggested this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL1zltXuHO8
>>23409 Thanks Grommet! Here's a platform-specific repo for the platform, opensauce. https://github.com/Efinix-Inc/tinyml And a general search for it on SJWH*b: https://github.com/topics/tinyml Harvard even has an open course on the topic pll.harvard.edu/course/fundamentals-tinyml Cheers. :^)
>>23414 Another, maybe, different one. https://www.tensorflow.org/lite I think it's the same or possibly a offshoot. It does mention it in the link you provided.
The AI Engine That Fits In 100K https://hackaday.com/2023/08/02/the-ai-engine-that-fits-in-100k/ Of course they're hyping this a bit but...it could be useful. I was reading the other day that like 99% of the neuron capacity is useless in present algorithms. I read it here >>3031 that, "...it now takes 44 times less compute to train a neural network... algorithmic progress has yielded more gains than classical hardware efficiency..." "..By 2028 we will have algorithms 4000x more efficient than AlexNet." So maybe it's not all hype. Maybe there is some big increase in efficiency. Maybe even enough that we could get some sort of interactive waifu, at a child level, with commodity processors.

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.

Today successfully wrote a TCP Client/Server as WindowsForm application and was able to setup a TCP connection to a running Unreal Project. For the Unreal TCP part I used this Plugin: https://github.com/getnamo/TCP-Unreal This way any other software can be connected via TCP (just IP and Port) to the running application. Next I will have a look into how to send data from and to unreal. Maybe JSON? I made a TCP Client/Server for debugging purposes. Those two are written in C#.

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?

>>28172 Throughout the bible, sin is demonstrated time and time again to fit the definition of hamartia. It does make one question the motives of those who object to working to not miss the target. Perhaps they're worried they'll get hit lol.
>>28178 wasnt arguing just pointing out the interesting grammar, but yeah if youre given a bulletpoint list of rules/goals as commandments then thats what it would mean wouldnt it, actually people should be more faithful to their goals in general, every damn january i get sick of hearing peoples new year resolutions because you know no one follows through with them maybe personal goals are the hardest to keep because no one holds you to account if you fail

>>28170 Anon because of lack of will to set a goal there anons that have different ideas of what the waifu should be. Some want a robot arms that can move with a set of wheels with a doll face attached to it, some want a sex doll where you put virtual glasses and it has a happy face, some want unity fu. You might be okay with that but those ideas are based on cope and pretending this can not be done. What else can i call it but COPE. That we should make a waifu with legs that can F*** and then have a conversation with its inner chatbot or whatever afterwards.
>>28072 >But if that code is GPL -alike, then unfortunately he very likely cannot. I'm still not sure about this, and rather skeptical. The pivot point is what counts as "linking". You can make hardware and sell it with GPL software, the crucial question is to which extent it can interact with proprietary software or software with other licences. I'm pretty sure you can have something in GPL and then modules with other licensing.
These two often discuss the limits and issues around open source hardware design. https://youtu.be/4aMo5IyVeu0 >Chat with Scott Lahteine, the mastermind behind the Marlin 3D Printer firmware. They delve into the workings of an open-source project, covering topics such as Scott's role, time commitment, funding sources, and common challenges he faces.

Cyborg general + Biological synthetic brains for robowaifus? Robowaifu Technician 04/06/2020 (Mon) 20:16:19 No.2184 [Reply] [Last]
Scientists made a neural network from rat neurons that could fly a fighter jet in a simulator and control a small robot. I think that lab grown biological components would be a great way to go for some robowaifu systems. It could also make it feel more real. https://www.google.com/amp/s/singularityhub.com/2010/10/06/videos-of-robot-controlled-by-rat-brain-amazing-technology-still-moving-forward/amp/ >=== -add/rm notice

>>28786 Interedasting. So it sound kind of like you could conceivably grow a sensory-network for a robowaifu (say, under her 'skin') using this approach. >memfractive Lol, that's a new one on me. Had to look it up. :D
>>28788 This is exactly what I was hoping for in the long run. That we would get there at some point.
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S2590238523006483 Biohybrid bipedal robot powered by skeletal muscle tissue Recently, there has been a growing interest in the development of biohybrid robots that combine synthetic components with biological materials, aiming to incorporate advanced biomaterial functions into robotic systems. Conventional biohybrid robots excel in large turning movements. To address this limitation, we report a biohybrid robot equipped with two legs and cultured skeletal muscle tissue, emphasizing the replication of subtle turning movements observed in human bipedal locomotion. The robot successfully demonstrated forward-stop motions and accurate turning compared to conventional biohybrid robots. These findings offer valuable insights for the advancement of soft robots powered by muscle tissue and have the potential to contribute to a deeper understanding of biological locomotion mechanisms. This constructive approach may pave the way for further mimicking the intricacies of the human gait mechanism in biohybrid robotics development.
