Python is by far the most common scripting language for AI/Machine Learning/Deep Learning frameworks and libraries. Post info on using it effectively.

On my Debian-based distro, here's how I set up Python, PIP, TensorFlow, and the Scikit-Learn stack for use with AI development:
sudo apt-get install python python-pip python-dev
python -m pip install --upgrade pip
pip install --user tensorflow numpy scipy scikit-learn matplotlib ipython jupyter pandas sympy nose


LiClipse is a good Python IDE choice, and there are a number of others.

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.

Cognitive Architecture : WIP Kiwi, NoidoDev 09/17/2023 (Sun) 20:38:37 No.25368 [Reply]
"An algorithm without a mind cannot have a heart." Chii Cogito Ergo Chii Chii thinks, therefore Chii is. --- # Introduction With cognitive architecture we mean software that ties different elements of other software together to create a system that can perform tasks that one AI model based on deep learning would not be able to do, or only with downsides in areas like alignement, speed or efficiency. We study the building blocks of the brain and the human mind by various definitions, with the goal to create something that thinks in a relatively similar way to a human being. Let's start with the three main aspects of mind: * Sentience: Ability to experience sensations and feelings. Her sensors communicate states to her. She senses your hand holding hers and can react. Feelings, having emotions. Her hand being held bring her happiness. This builds on her capacity for subjective experience, related to qualia. * Self-awareness: Capacity to differentiate the self from external actors and objects. When presented with a mirror, echo, or other self referential sensory input is recognized as the self. She sees herself in your eyes reflection and recognizes that is her, that she is being held by you.

How to invest in Robo Waifus? Robowaifu Technician 03/07/2021 (Sun) 20:57:45 No.8841 [Reply] [Last]
Hi /robowaifu/, I've stumbled here after doing some research into creating a robowaifu stock portfolio. My thinking was I am never going to be able to build a robowaifu from scratch but will buy one when they become available. I want to contribute somehow to their development so I am creating a stock portfolio where I buy only stocks that I believe are working towards robo waifus either literally or by just advancing the tech that would be needed. GPUs, Semiconductors, AI, VR, Robotics, Batterys, Silicon. My current portfolio: >NVDA - Nvidia - GPUs used in AI / Machine Learning >AMD >TSM - TSMC. The world's biggest and most advance semiconductor foundry. >INTC - Intel >ABB - ABB Ltd - Swedish-Swiss company in automation technology, robotics, heavy electrical equipment. >IRBT - iRobot - Home Robotics >MSFT - Microsoft - They are investing heavy into AI and have one of the largest AI chat bots "Xiaoice". >TER - Teradyne >IBM Other suggestions: >TSLA - Tesla - Humanoid robotics

The best way to invest in robowaifu is to be on the receiving end. If people here atleast have the intention to contribute to this thing for free I'd say it'd be even nicer to contribute to this thing while getting paid. There are many sites out there for seed funding, I'm not finance guy and I'm kind of clueless and i'm assuming most people here are kind of green as well. Its in our best interest for us to go that route really. This could be yuge. i don't want to do this myself and can't though. I don't have good credentials, I can't be the face, they'd also want to give funding to a team not a single individual that might as well bail. I bet they get plenty of ideas and I'd best most of those ideas suck tbh. Just guessing though. A lot of people got stuck on the whole middle man app stuff and I don't think anyone is interested in more middle man apps or web services nowadays. There is nothing unrealistic about it really If we can get something that's good that resembles a robot waifu ofc. I wouldn't feel comfortable presenting without a full bodied waifu that can do the bare stuff and that's why I don't have a problem sharing it. Just a robot waifu that can move and talk and have basic visual recognition, maybe. But that's where it'll end. The rest will be proprietary I think. The components would also have to be customized. We could not use proprietary technology such as a raspberry pi or esp or whatever else. With that we'd have the ingredients to make something better which is the idea and so would anyone else that pays attention to the process. We give back we also get back. Tl;dr:We make a basic robot waifu and present to multiple seed investing sites. Again I don't see a flaw on the plan. Let me know if you think there's a flaw. Really cause I get the impression you guys don't think is possible whereas i feel more optimistic about it. Although I will say its too early to start thinking about such things, but why shouldn't we aim our sights high?
>>24367 Haha, no. We had this conversation several times. No point in repeating it.
>>8841 >How to invest in Robo Waifus? You have to separate making money from your hobbies/personal interests bro. Thats the nr.1 rule of making money: be heartless. After you make money you can invest in small inventors who have practical inventions that improve current sex dolls. You dont go from nothing to 100% wAIfubot. There will be a lot of sexdoll-sexbot intermediaries, so fund people who make those intermediaries.
>>24408 >Thats the nr.1 rule of making money: be heartless. I consider that a rather-outmoded way of thinking tbh. It's generosity that will bring you, your employees, and indeed the entire planet the most benefits in the end. Greed for filthy lucre is the GH's game, and will prove their downfall in the end. In our model, everyone rises together on the same tide. :^)
>>24408 If you think that robowaifus are nothing more serious than a hobby, you're in for a world of surprises.

Short Stacks the Obvious Solution Robowaifu Technician 05/06/2020 (Wed) 10:51:46 No.2666 [Reply] [Last]
If we want a robowaifu that anyone can make at home then we will need to make it small enough to be printed on a cheap 3d printer. Let's say the ender 3 because it has a large printing area and a large community because it is so affordable. Our robowaifu doesn't have to be printed all in one go; in fact it would probably be better if our robowaifu was printed in parts, those parts used to make silicone casts around robotic internals. Short stack robowaifus provide an easily printable solution and require considerably less materials to make than conventional sexbots. They could be easier and cheaper for the average man to produce. There is also a large community surrounding short stacks as it is a popular fetish. Goblins, kobold, dwarfs, halflings, and gnomes are very popular in fantasy and several 3d models for them can easily be found on the internet which would give men options for their robowaifus. Engineering a smaller robowaifu would also be considerably easier. Less stress would be put on her skeleton and less energy would be required to make her move. Short stacks in particular often have thicker legs and feet which would fix a lot of issues with balance. What are your thoughts /robowaifu/ have you taken the short stack pill?

AI Design principles and philosophy Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 06:44:15 No.27 [Reply] [Last]
My understanding of AI is somewhat limited, but personally I find the software end of things far more interesting than the hardware side. To me a robot that cannot realistically react or hold a conversation is little better than a realdoll or a dakimakura.

As such, this is a thread for understanding the basics of creating an AI that can communicate and react like a human. Some examples I can think of are:

>ELIZA
ELIZA was one of the first chatbots, and was programmed to respond to specific cues with specific responses. For example, she would respond to "Hello" with "How are you". Although this is one of the most basic and intuitive ways to program a chat AI, it is limited in that every possible cue must have a response pre-programmed in. Besides being time-consuming, this makes the AI inflexible and unadaptive.

>Cleverbot
The invention of Cleverbot began with the novel idea to create a chatbot using the responses of human users. Cleverbot is able to learn cues and responses from the people who use it. While this makes Cleverbot a bit more intelligent than ELIZA, Cleverbot still has very stilted responses and is not able to hold a sensible conversation.

>Taybot
Taybot is the best chatbot I have ever seen and shows a remarkable degree of intelligence, being able to both learn from her users and respond in a meaningful manner. Taybot may even be able to understand the underlying principles of langauge and sentence construction, rather than simply responding to phrases in a rote fashion. Unfortunately, I am not sure how exactly Taybot was programmed or what principles she uses, and it was surely very time-intensive.

Which of these AI formats is most appealing? Which is most realistic for us to develop? Are there any other types you can think of? Please share these and any other AI discussion in this thread!
