>>16127 >I only recently started looking for this place again to see what was going. Glad you're back Anon! :^) >I also know of a small group of around 7 probably over a year ago that stopped lurking/posting over the comment deletions concerning that one dev with the animated wall paper thing he was trying to sell. Not surprising I suppose. Certainly, I bent waaay over backwards to try and keep from having to delete Em Elle E's thread. After all, a whole lot of us put metric-effing-boatloads of thought and conversation into that thread! But he insisted on it. It was extremely rude of him, so I gave him a year ban (well, sort of), and deleted all his own posts (again, at his insistence) & archived the remainder of the thread for the rest of us. It can still be read today, ofc. (>>10362, ...) >This place kinds of scares me sometimes, Lol, that bad ehh? >because I don't really know who is running it, I am. I both began the /wbg/ (Waifubot General) threads back on 4cuck/g/, was generally the primary ringleader and (often as not) led the discussions all across the Internet about robowaifus back in the day. I founded the /robowaifu/ board itself back on 8chan/8ch some 5.5 years ago now. I rescued it from destruction (by the glownigger redflag gayop clearly intended to destroy the free Internet), and I'm also the current BO of it. I started it because feminism has literally destroyed both the civilization I so cherish, and also (often quite literally) the lives of millions of men abused thus. Robowaifus (so long as they obtain the quality we all dream of) will go a powerful-long way towards righting the tremendous set of wrongs done to our society -- indeed to our civilization -- by TPTB. Cute anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts will be a God-sent blessing to us all if I manage to have anything to say in the matter!! :^) My fingerprints are all over it. More info can be found in this post (>>14500). AMA, Anon. >and who is watching. LOL. EVERYONE is watching, fren!111 :^) We have both friends and enemies all keeping an eye on the place. And in the future, when a man can freely make the waifu companion he desires in the comfort and privacy of his own home -- and relatively-easily too (open-sauce, tutorials here & elsewhere, etc.) -- then you can bet the scrutiny both pro & con will explode in scope. As in: a global phenomenon big. Good enough? >I was planning on releasing an offline capable "robowaifu" RPG game Sounds great, get to work Anon! I'm sure it would be of interest to us here. >and thus I directed them here... >Ultimately I wanted to redirect players to this (robowaifu) site to build their "girl's" actual mechanical body. I think you should team up with our long-time regular Meta Ronin, then. He desires to create various online presences for robowaifus generally, and together you two might do something important.

>>15478 >>15480 I'm still around, I have access to higher tech than commonly known so we can potentially have near limitless run time, that's not an issue for me and if you believe in this then you can have it too before most others. The atoms keep on going and going, ever wonder why? The heart also could keep going seemingly forever if maintained properly and allowed to do its thing. So too can electric power be continually generated and I have seen magnets used for this, it is very real. It can be as small or as big as needed. >>15485 Yes I'm glad I'm still able to access this board Sorry I haven't been on as much, I've had a lot going on The thing I've had most trouble with is tiny yet strong actuators. Maybe we could mimic how the body does it... ...small animals like rats and birds can move so it should be possible, its just that we need to mimic that with electronics and engineering in some way. I'm still kind of stumped on that. I wont give up, but sometimes I take breaks for various reasons. I have other projects too that I work on and which help hone my skills. In my dreams I've seen machine beings, artificially made structures with life induced into them. Life is emergent and could sprout given the right conditions.

>>16330 >Higher tech Please do share it then. I made the esoteric/mysticism thread so I'm pretty darn open to all ideas. >Atomic motion Every atom can be considered a thermal engine powering the motion of electrons. I'm grossly oversimplifying as nuclear physics at this level is of little benefit to us. >Heart Surprisingly inefficient, requires a lot of energy from ATP that the body produces through several chemical cycles reliant on the intake of caloric foods. >Continual electric power via magnets Well, most generators do function via alternating magnetic fields on a conductor to induce an electric field. Please provide more details, is this related to the previous energy examples? Perhaps a generator based on burning a caloric fuel, like alcohol? I've been thinking about alcohol powered stirling engine, though its low power to mass is a concern. >Actuators Have you considered making her larger than a fairy? Heck, even rabbit sized can easily be done with cheap and abundant motors like: https://www.amazon.com/DC-Gear-Motor-Planetary-Industrial/dp/B07XMFLSPB/ref=sr_1_7?crid=NA2PG6GAXRSH&keywords=gear+motor&qid=1653093170&sprefix=gear+motor%2Caps%2C164&sr=8-7 >Dreams Nikola Tesla dreamed of his AC motor and generators before inventing them.

Its evidenced as how difficult it is for us to make advanced robowaifus, nature truly is magnificent. Also the point I'm making is that the heart is self perpetuating as long as sustained by the will of the body. >Perhaps a generator based on burning a caloric fuel, like alcohol? No, the "fuel" is the magnets which are actually made when the electrons of atoms align in such a way that they create a current within the magnetic material (which is what makes a magnet work) Any and all electric currents make magnetic fields, and because the atoms are self sustaining, the magnetic field which is generated from the atomic alignment in the permanent magnet can be used to make a perpetual power source. I have personally witnessed such a device work, but its still being tested and not quite ready for release yet. >Have you considered making her larger than a fairy? I have considered a lot of things, I do think there's a way to do this, making a smaller robowaifu means less materials, but more intricacy, which is a challenge I'm interested in. >I wish to help you realize machine life.

I spent some time today looking for my electronic parts box from 2015 and dug up some other things while at it, including the Lapis project box and the MSP430. Eventually I found the 2015 box The project I'm working on now is to use a PS3 controller to control the outputs on the Raspberry Pi I had the idea today that maybe one can use a magnetized needle and a small coil to make a tiny linear actuator.

>>15486 >Favorite Waifu Iczer-1. >Name Nagisa. The name of Iczer-1's partner, she's a female character but apparently Nagisa is also a valid male name. >Specialty Unix manuals, C programming and proper C practices and techniques, portability between hardware/software platforms and C libraries, Unix utilities, library design and implementation, automated testing, automated releases, linting/checking (haven't done fuzzing yet), build systems, spotting/fixing violations of the C and POSIX standards because I've read large parts of both standards several times specifically so I can memorize them and become a language lawyer, and whatever else doesn't come to mind. >Relevant Experience: The specialties are the things I'm good at, there are more things I know but suck at. I'm not good with GDB or at reading other people's programs for instance. I can write a Windows installer, but I don't think I do it well, and quite frankly I only did it as a challenge–I don't want to deal with Windows' awfulness. It seems I find a bug in everything I touch. I've found bugs in a build system, a compiler, multiple libcs, a kernel, an irc client, and numerous other programs I use merely by using them. I also found bugs on many I don't use. Usually I try to fix the bug and send the patch, otherwise I only report it, for instance I had no idea where to even begin with fixing that compiler bug so I only reported it. I'm the main author of a popular FLOSS program, not because I wrote it, but because I hacked on it until most of the source was of my authorship. I deleted half the C code and over 90% of the build definitions, ported it to all the free unix systems and some more, fixed bugs, implemented superior practices, rewrote the entire documentation, and rewrote needlessly complicated and obtuse code with a fraction of the lines of code. I've ported numerous programs and written many manuals at this point. I've rewritten code faster/simpler/smaller in many projects. I basically write entire projects alone and I follow every good practice I find. I find that some professional programmers for instance only really know what their job requires of them. One guy is a good algorithms developer and writes all the algorithms, but doesn't know how to write a man page or only export the API symbols of a library. Another can very easily and quickly dive into source code, understand it, and begin maintaining it, but has no idea how to keep the Windows or the Haiku port working and if there's a merge conflict he asks someone else to do it. Well, I'm a homegrown Unix hacker, I'm all alone doing all parts of the program and nobody helps me fix what I don't know because nobody uses my original programs, so I've had to learn everything and I had to learn to do it properly to avoid wasting my own time with low quality tools and brittle code. My experience with programming begins around 10 years ago when I first installed Linux and became obsessed with the command line, I learned Shell, sed, and AWK. A little over 2 years ago I read through K&R C and did quite a few of the exercises (there are a lot of hard exercises there that I didn't manage) and since then I have worked through programming books almost daily. When I get bored, I go write some program or contribute to FLOSS. I've always tried to keep progressing by diving into something I've never done before, in just 2 years I find I've done quite a lot, although I only went deep into my specialties. >Most Important Aspect For Your Waifu She has to be a 190cm tall amazon. >Desired Position On Team None. I don't like responsibilities. If you write a C program, I'll review it and send fixes and suggestions. I can also help with documentation, those Unix small languages like Shell, writing packages for Linux distros, and whatever else I might know.

Just a fancy process manager https://github.com/aristocratos/btop >>15474 I agree with your assessment of the current gist of things. The future may surprise us, but my default scenario points towards less individual freedom. Big tech and government will become ever more dominant. AI capabilities will advance all the way to superhuman (at least on competitive benchmarks), with models being ever more locked down behind APIs, censorship and plain veil of concealment. Looks like if we really want access to capable AI models, we'll have to train & host them ourselves. Wide enough distribution will make outlawing these models harder. Anyway, here's my entry: Name: Pareto Frontier Favorite Waifu: Cibo from Blame! Specialty: software engineering, deep learning, generalist with experience in a few more fields. Of the skills relevant to our cause there is also electronics/embedded, CAD, 3d-printing. Relevant Experience: professional experience in large corporations. Most Important Aspect For Your Waifu: friendly general intelligence capable enough to surprise me Desired Position On Team: ML lead/engineer. Simulation integrator. Data custodian. I can be brutally honest and/or deeply caring. I will describe the simplified essence of the project I intend to pursue: My primary goal is engineering and training of a helpful AI useful both as a personal assistant and as a core for our companions. The AI is meant to run on a single decent gaming GPU, be distributed freely over the internet at no associated cost, and most of its components and datasets should come under as open license as possible. I lean towards AGPLv3 for the code at least to make it poisonous for the corpos. The Sutton's bitter lesson and the connectionist Scaling Hypothesis imply compute being the bottleneck in AI, thus the AI training (and not the ML, data engineering) is the hardest part of my/our endeavor. Compute is scarce, but our artifact will be lasting. We'll have to calibrate our expectations vs realistic achievable loss curves and to pool our resources in a format similar to folding@home, but at lesser scale. Realistically, on the order of hundred volunteers should suffice for a mid-range training run. This will require some PR, and I hope to receive help with this aspect. While I find the goal of the Chobits' project morally in the right place and aesthetically pleasing, I'm time-conscious. I will be laser-focused on completing AI core to the fullest degree possible, and to the extent I'm able to achieve this goal, there should be obvious and significant synergy between our projects. Related thread with engineering details and the project infrastructure coming soon.
>>16411 >Good to know Chobitsu is still at it Good to be here! :^ >RPi3b+RTC Sounds good, Hik. I hope you get that working properly. I think SBCs will prove pretty valuable in our overarching quest here. Best to become skilled with their administration, etc.
>>16429 >A pined thread with this and docs could be useful, but not essential. I've considered such before, but the OP ITT or the Welcome Thread is a much more likely resolution. Again, I'll think about such 'Welcome Newcomer' tips & faqs. Thanks for the advice Anon. >George Orwell was an optimist... To say the least. >Looks like if we really want access to capable AI models, we'll have to train & host them ourselves. Wide enough distribution will make outlawing these models harder. That's certainly both true and also a significant benefit to Anons+Robowaifus everywhere. >Pareto Frontier Welcome to the team, Pareto Frontier! We have other AI specialists here as well. Kywy is the project's overall team-lead, so look to him for guidance in general. >My primary goal is engineering and training of a helpful AI useful both as a personal assistant and as a core for our companions. The AI is meant to run on a single decent gaming GPU, be distributed freely over the internet at no associated cost, and most of its components and datasets should come under as open license as possible. >I lean towards AGPLv3 for the code at least to make it poisonous for the corpos. Personally, I get that. But tbh, I'm rather opposed to the GPL in general as an >"...anti-commercialization virus" >t. Bjarne Stroustrup One of our major goals here on /robowaifu/ is to support a blossoming ecosystem of (eventually) thousands of small businesses (garage factories, etc.) in the spirit of Henry Ford and The Wright Brothers. Permissive licenses like MIT, BSD, ISC are far more conducive to that future. GPL will never go anywhere for commercial operations -- basically by design. >The Sutton's bitter lesson and the connectionist Scaling Hypothesis imply compute being the bottleneck in AI, thus the AI training (and not the ML, data engineering) is the hardest part of my/our endeavor. I would suggest you have a look into Carver Mead, et al's Neuromorphics research (>>12828, >>8321) as well. >I will be laser-focused on completing AI core to the fullest degree possible, and to the extent I'm able to achieve this goal, there should be obvious and significant synergy between our projects.

I've just bought a 3d printer (Creality Ender 3 pro as my first printer) https://www.creality.com/products/ender-3-pro-3d-printer I will most likely pick it up on friday. I already have filaments which I got for free from a convention If it works out well I'll be expanding on it
>>16461 Congrats Hik! That's a nice one IMO. Looking forward to your printout pics! >figurine A Cute!

I got and assembled my 3d printer today Took about 3 hours to put it together I have yet to configure it and setup software for it and such, will get to that soon, then I'll make test prints and tweak slic3r settings and so on
>>16494 Congrats! And welcome to 3d-printer calibration technicians' club! You have to choose slicer (cura, slic3r) and a CAD (solvespace, freecad, cadquery, openscad or something else) to continue.
>>16494 Gratz Hik! May your 3D-printing adventures go smoothly. Cheers.
