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.

>>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

It's a great OP effort, OP. Really nice work, seriously. However, I'm going to have to lock this thread. I'm pretty adamantly opposed to the obvious choice of turning /robowaifu/ into /Terminatorz-R-Us/ . Unfortunately /k/ was baleeted by it's unsavory BO recently, or I'd suggest you recreate this there. As is, I'm not sure what else to tell you, other than to commend you again, apologize, and hope you understand. --- >the existing battle droid waifu thread I suppose that was an oversight on my part. I will lock that thread too; again, with my apologies to Anons. --- Sorry to be a stick in the mud about this Anons. I certainly understand both the appeal and the need. However our primary focus is robowaifus for companionship, not war-making. There will be plenty of companies like B*ston Dynamics, and other Globohomo-encumbered companies to fill that need. However, precious few to fill the actual need that Anons have for loving, helpful, charming, and opensauce robowaifus. Feel free to discuss addressing this issue in our /meta thread, Anons.

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?

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

>>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.

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.

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.

>>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!?

Of course complete robots or kits for them would be far more complex devices, but if you are thinking of setting up your own small (to start) business, it's a look at some of what would be involved, just a small example so you won't be completely overwhelmed and just give up.

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.

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.
