Artificial Wombs general Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 03:11:54 No.157
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?
>>4688 These are pretty good points IMO Anon.
>>4688 Indeed. It is much easier to maintain homeostasis too in a nice, cabinet-sized artificial womb than trying to cram it in a tiny robotic abdomen.
>>4698 Exactly. With robowaifus we now have a chance of creating our women, so why not make them the best? Why limit the concept of femininity to the modern woman's one if we can make it better?
>>4698 >>4703 So where do we get the eggs from for our blessed offspring?
>>4706 Making sure that whole thing works would be a huge topic of it's own, depends also on the country. Paid donors of course, but not possible everywhere. Making eggcells from normal cells has already been tested in a lab, though.
>>4688 Aye, that along with engineered egg cells would be enough to produce a viable fetus.
>>4703 Y'know, part of what limits human intelligence is the size of a woman's hips. Larger brains require larger heads, and those are difficult to pass through birth canals. With a completely separate artificial womb this problem can be eliminated. >>2671 Pig uterus recellularized with human cells kept alive via ex vivo organ perfusion is probably our best bet at an artificial womb. There is already a lot of research done in that area.
>>8007 > ex vivo organ perfusion Interesting I didn't know about that one. So, can you clarify the proposal here? Is the idea that the uterus (pig's presumably?) be kept alive outside a body during the gestation process?
>>8009 >So, can you clarify the proposal here? Is the idea that the uterus (pig's presumably?) be kept alive outside a body during the gestation process? Yes that is the gist of it. Organs can be kept alive outside the body if they are put into similar conditions to the body. The organs are kept at body temperature and supplied with blood. This technology is already used in order to keep organs alive for transplants. HOWEVER these organs are usually only kept alive for a couple of days. Though it is worth noting that there have been animal tests that have lasted weeks or even months, and this technology is rapidly advancing. It should also be noted that this pigs are the model organism for this technology. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/transplant/programs/Ex-Vivo-Perfusion.html https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28266040/
>>8011 We could bring a human baby to term inside an artificial womb/xenopregnancy at this present day if the government of any first-world nation were insane enough to devote the resources to it. Although such a move would be incredibly ethically questionable (many destroyed ova and aborted babies due to failed attempts) and there is currently no demand for such technology. Surrogacy and fostering take precedence over it.
>>8012 Good points. OTOH, it also highlights the one nation that is likely to achieve it first: namely China. First, they have a large deficit of females that is even more likely to increase now that they are granting stronk, independynts the right to """choose""". Secondly, they have no such ethical compunctions (which are directly an artifact of the growth of Christianity and The Western Tradition hand-in-hand).
Yeah, I also tend to think that either China or Russia will produce the first synthetically birthed humans (possible they already have). Both countries are ahead of the West in stem cell research, and Russia has its well established Biopreparat facilities for biochem research. Even if the bodies produced aren't sentient, growing all of those replacement organs will be lucrative and very useful both medically and militarily.
>>8012 I think there would be demand if it would be working reliably. Women could go on working instead of being pregnant, men could have their own children, both in a much later stage of life. It should first be tested on animals of course. It also makes more sense to use it first to make pregnancy shorter, which could be used by mothers but also by surrogates. In the later case it would also prevent them from getting attached to the baby. Also, the customer and the doctors would not have to monitor the woman for factors like her eating habits or other behaviors which could be harmful to the baby. The surrogate herself could have more babies, even more at once, if they could be taken out earlier and moved to some artificial womb.
>>8012 We could sell the idea from a feminist or trans rights approach. "Free women from motherhood" "Transwomen can have babies too!" I think SJW types are dumb enough to buy that shit.
>>8016 It's not completely BS, though. Some things are a zero sum game, or it's just more complicated. They would be able to cut pregnancy short and reduce their mother role by having a robonanny. Also, could be easier for them to have children without a husband. Women will be hit by having no men if they want to and also might be financially affected, if more men go MGTOW bc robowaifus, lovebots and artificial wombs. The really interesting part of that topic would be how we can get to a point where men can have children without needing a woman as partner. That might be outside of the scope of this board. It also is interesting before having robowaifus, since one could also use a nanny to nurture the child for the first four or five year. It's more about organizing that. Western women selling eggcells abroad, having reliable clinics and surrogates, infrastructure to host the surrogates and control their habits for a few month, getting the children over the border and accepted by law, excluding the eggcell donor from any motherly entitlements. Having artificial wombs would be an extension of that, making it easier, more reliable, more scaleable, closer to home and maybe cheaper.
>>8016 While it is true that they would fall for it I don't think it would fool there "handlers" who would immediately see through our rouse.
>>8043 Good point Anon. They are probably far craftier & cynical than we ourselves are, always expecting the worst from everyone around them and plotting accordingly. They wouldn't be taken in for a minute, regardless whether they felt they should fool their golems into believing so or not. Accordingly, what we should be doing is devising ways to convince the handlers themselves it's in their best bottom-line interest to play along as well.
>>8044 Well I think they would always like the free human labor because rebellious humans can be dealt with a lot better than a rebellious AI that just hacked access to hundreds of metal worker robots. Maybe all human in the future are birthed in giant womb factories with the best worker DNA being harvested by campion bots and deferent Dna is combined based on what is needed. Need workers combine the best worker stock, need a new genius for new ideas make an Einstein. All the while the robowifes will keep there companions happy, docile, and well loved. I'm okay with this outcome.

>Ex utero mouse embryogenesis from pre-gastrulation to late organogenesis >Abstract >Establishment of the mammalian body plan occurs shortly after the embryo implants into the maternal uterus, and our understanding of post-implantation developmental processes remains limited. While methods for in vitro culture of pre- and peri-implantation mouse embryos are routinely utilized1,2, approaches for robust culture of post-implantation embryos from egg cylinder stages until advanced organogenesis remain to be established. Here we develop highly conducive ex utero post-implantation mouse embryo culture platforms, that enable appropriate development of embryos before gastrulation (E5.5) until the hind limb formation stage (E11). Late gastrulating embryos (E7.5) are grown in 3D rotating bottles settings, while extended culture from pre-gastrulation stages (E5.5 or E6.5) requires a combination of novel static and rotating bottle culture platforms. Histological, molecular, and single-cell RNA-seq analyses validate that the ex utero cultured embryos recapitulate in utero development precisely. This culture system is amenable to introducing a variety of embryonic perturbations and micro-manipulations that can be followed ex utero for up to six days. Establishment of a system to robustly grow normal mouse embryos ex utero from pre-gastrulation to advanced organogenesis represents a valuable tool to investigate embryogenesis, eliminating the uterine barrier to mechanistically interrogate post-implantation morphogenesis and tissue specification in mammals. www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03416-3 BTW, if you can obtain this, would you mind posting it here or somewhere for the rest of us Anon?

We all know this is the only way robots will ever be mainstream and stop the thot problem.
>>9923 [...] putting them into robots doesn't make much sense. If we could build something like it, they would be outside of any body. It's difficult enough anyways, building robowaifus and wombs. Forget about combining them.
>>9923 >When What's your guess r/n Anon? Personally, I'm highly skeptical it will ever happen outside of absconding with biological systems that have already been designed to do this IE, some real Frankenstein-tier shit involving human female bodies. The vastly-complex cascade of physiological processes would all have to be solved -- correctly and in order -- for a tech-only solution to ever occur. Give us a billion years to work on it, then maybe. But even in that case I would be quite guarded in my predictions about our success. However, I don't think even a single one of all of us think we have that kind of time in this universe. >tl;dr When the Chinese do it, since they have no moral compunctions in general.
I don't think we'll get there either. Not enough time left to create something as complex as a fully artificial uterus. I give our species another century, tops. Sounds dramatic, I know. But just watch what happens when millions start dying in India and the Middle East from severe heatwaves every summer. EU is going to be completely swamped by refugees and social order there will break down. Probably something similar going to happen at the U.S-Mexican border. Libs will blame cons; cons will blame libs. Everyone at each other's throats. Russia knows this already; it's why they're tooling up and securing their borders. When the West finally implodes, our "leaders" will manufacture a narrative that blames Russia and China. Then we'll likely try and take everything down with us. Can't say who or if anything will survive. My money would be on the Russians to carry on though.
>>9932 I disagree. It's very unlikely that our species is going to die out. We are way to resilient. I don't want to go into speculations if the west will break down at some time soon. The important point is, that we can live much easier wherever we want, when we have robowaifus, robonurses and other robots in the house or in form of e.g. automatic supermarkets. Reclusion from society will also be much easier, even when we stay were we are. No one needs to go out to meet women or to have a fancy job, nor even live in a city. Having that said, I agree that the focus on artificial wombs with the same functionality as the original is probably misguided. Getting that tech is gonna take a while, and it's okay to take it into account for long term fantasies, but short term it's more important to find ways to use surrogates, which might have it's own issues. But then again, since this board is about technology and such topic would be rather about politics and legal issues, it's even not the right place here.
>>9934 Of course, WWIII (or re-population efforts afterwards) might actually be the catalyst for development of fully artificial wombs. After all, an organic one cannot grow babies very well in an irradiated environment. But a uterus that is either protected inside a machine...or IS a machine...that might become a necessity for the survival of humankind in a post-apocalyptic wasteland? Question is how badly we nuke ourselves and if there is enough surviving infrastructure and technology left afterwards. Otherwise it might just be dark ages for centuries. I just hope I die before the shit kicks off for reals.
>>9934 >But then again, since this board is about technology and such topic would be rather about politics and legal issues, it's even not the right place here. Not to dissuade you from that viewpoint Anon (I wish it were true myself), I think you'll discover here that the whole topic in general touches on so many different widely-varied topics (for example, cf. the current discussion on so-called TITS Robowaifu teleoperations >>9712) that political, sociological, economic, military, even spirituality topics all come up. Basically the entire gamut of the human condition is affected by robowaifus (which is pretty amazing if you think about it, coming from a bunch of shitposting anons).
>>8007 >Larger brains require larger heads, and those are difficult to pass through birth canals. With a completely separate artificial womb this problem can be eliminated. Even better. Our sons will literally look like grey aliens from hollywood but with a mean IQ of 140. I for one embrace our future.
>>5021 And that's exactly what we're supposed to do. This way, we can rise our sons by ourselves and enlighten them so that they can carry on our work

i want a robowaifu like armitage. would a standalone unit be safer/better or should it be inside the robot
>>10278 I think the general consensus ITT is that a standalone unit will be the safest and most practical. Both for the babies and the robowaifus. Personally, I'm highly skeptical it will even be possible, so my advice is 'don't hold your breath anon'. Maybe they'll prove me wrong, who knows? But you can be certain that as long as things proceed the way they are in the West r/n, it's extremely unlikely you or I would be permitted to freely own an artificial womb unit and produce our own kids. If they ever do come, they will be both outrageously expensive, and outright illegal for anyone outside the globohomo ultra-elite to own them.
Artificial wombs might come faster as we thought. The Israelies are pushing it, they just made progress with the early part of the progress, while the later one was already kind of covered by the Japanese in 2013 and others since then. >In a study published in the journal Nature, Dr. Jacob Hanna described removing embryos from the uteruses of mice at five days of gestation and growing them for six more days in artificial wombs. Also, if you missed it: >A recent development provides another opportunity. Researchers have directly created mouse embryos from mouse fibroblasts — connective tissue cells — making early embryos without starting with a fertilized egg. https://web.archive.org/web/20210512135903/https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/17/health/mice-artificial-uterus.html https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03416-3 >The establishment of a system for robustly growing normal mouse embryos ex utero from pre-gastrulation to advanced organogenesis represents a valuable tool for investigating embryogenesis, as it eliminates the uterine barrier and allows researchers to mechanistically interrogate post-implantation morphogenesis and artificial embryogenesis in mammals.

>>10668 **than we thought
>>10668 Thanks for the update Anon. Were the mice subsequently brought to full viability, or were the embryos destroyed (ie, it was simply a test of ex utero growth at all) ?
>>10675 The new method covers the first few days and they were developing and testing that method. They want to use it to understand that part of pregnancy better. They might test the full route to birth at some point.
>>157 How would you explain that to your kid? Wouldn't there be psychological implications or are we talking Jango fett clone pod "artificial womb"
>>12159 >How would you explain that to your kid? Just show him corporate-controlled newsfeeds and any of the non-censored twatter/faceberg posts from current year? Grim stuff tbh. Having a Boku no Marie-tier mom would be a far superior option than practically anything I can see available out there today Anon. There may still be good women isolated in some rare Shangri-La cloistered away somewhere extremely remote. But everywhere else it's growing rather dark outside. Robowaifus+artificial wombs may in fact become essential eventually to any form of higher civilization to survive the coming, intentionally-crafted, societal storms and tidal waves that are likely to wash over the entire earth.
>>12159 Why? Why would this be a problem? To answer it: "You wouldn't exist without it." - That aside it won't be available soon and it's going to be a gradual process. After testing it animals, then using it on babies born to early, it might be used to shorten pregnancy. Then it could be used by surrogates in their sponsored pregnancies the same way. Every progress would need to go through the same filter, since we would want it to be safe.
>>12159 >How would you explain that to your kid? >Wouldn't there be psychological implications Poor zoomers right now are trying to get over the fact that their mother is a whore, psychologically traumatized for life. The kid isn't going to have any problems coming from an artificial womb knowing he was literally created out of a want and not because he's a mere byproduct of a whorish woman having "fun".

Before making artificial wombs, how about focusing on how to make artificial functional mammary glands? If I did clone myself then I'd have something to feed him with, and if I didn't at least I could suck them myself. It also seems like a significantly lower bar in terms of complexity compared to an entire functioning uterus.
>>13154 Because the wombs aren't for being put into the robowaifus but for having children. Glands aren't necessary. However, it seem to be possible to create genetically modified yeast that produces all kinds of milk, so it's even not a problem. Don't know about the current state, here two vids I didn't watch mysef yet, the first short the other really long: https://youtu.be/CXYg-qt4OCc https://youtu.be/ZiWnygcYsiQ I thought these were available for years, but somehow didn't here more about it. So I'm curious myself.
>>13189 >Because the wombs aren't for being put into the robowaifus but for having children. I've argued with some weirdos who were very insistent that the wombs should be in the robowaifus, just because it's their fetish. I'm not saying mammary glands need to be in the waifubot, but if they fit, and you're into that, I don't see why not. Either way they'd be useful for raising the kid. >Glands aren't necessary. I'm going to have to disagree with you on that. I don't know a lot about fetal development, but I do know varying blood hormone levels can have significant effects on fetal development. And hormones largely come from and are regulated by glands. When it comes to artificial organs it seems like glands are largely overlooked. As far as I know there's something of an artificial ovary and an artificial thymus, something that literally disappears with age, but other artificial endocrine organs basically don't exist. I think that in order to create a perfectly healthy baby with an artificial womb, you'd either need to replicate almost all of the other organs in the body to digest food/supplements to make blood or have a regular supply of healthy pregnant woman blood. The simple fact that blood plasma donations are still a thing highlights the fact that we still can't create an adequate blood plasma substitute. All an artificial mammary gland would do is make realistic breast milk, which is a simple task compared to making an artificial womb, but is still a difficult task on its own and there may be some problems it solves that would be needed to solve for the artificial wombs.
Alright folks, there's a lot of good information being shared about what scientists are doing with this stuff. Here's a news flash though: Anyone can follow the scientific method. We can break this whole thing down into smaller parts and grassroots this shit. >ctrl-f 'amniotic fluid' >no results What does a human body do? Eat. What does a pregnant human body do? Eat. What does a human fetus do? Absorb nutrients from what the mother eats. Chemically speaking, literally everything that the human body is capable of is available in some form or another at your local grocery store. My question is how difficult would it be to mix together a facsimile for amniotic fluid? What makes it up? How much of what, and how does that change during gestation? We need recipe cards or something.
