/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

>>24090 >Mo Gawdat This guy is just awful, I couldn't listen to him being on this show or the other one. These channels themselves seem generally to sensationalize things and spread FUD coming from people with some fake authority. Also, this guy doesn't think robowaifus are a good idea, he just thinks it's an attractive idea which will be popular. He's an AI doomer...
>>23944 >And the Chinese will definitely need open source robowaifus more than us And things are looking up for the Chinese anons, too! Apparently all this diverse enrichment going on in the West under the Globohomo's aggressive """guidance""" is generally 'bad for business', intellectually-speaking.

>>24090 Pure clickbait. But, that panderer probably serves our robowaifu cadre's interests in the end despite himself heh. There's an old, corrupt, saying: "Any news is good news." This means drawing attention is beneficial since it keeps you in the public's eye (and on their minds). One of the necessary elements for an explosion of robowaifus is for men around the world to become aware that they are quickly becoming a practical reality. Journalistic trash like this, and what keeps coming out of those British rags will actually speed this industry up in the end.
>>24090 > The sexbot, CarynAI, boasts over 1,000 boyfriends who each pay $1 a minute for its services. lol lmao even
>>24110 Don't tell me you missed these news during the last few months. The article is completely misleading if they really wrote "sexbot", it's an app for all I know. The positive aspect is, women will now think that other women profit from this, so they won't go against it as much, compared to if it was some guy making a companion AI. That will also happen, but then the idea of such companions will already be established. I don't like the idea that online thots reap in the early profits, but it might help to prevent early resistance. Also, me and others pointed out, that these reports about how much she made is most likely just marketing. It feeds the sensationalist press, some react with outrage others might mock it or it might spark some debates, but then the product is always mentioned...
I'm not posting a full overview over the AI news videos today and even not covering some videos I watched, since it's often only some improvements to existing things and are often not that relevant to making robowaifus, though some stuff would be useful for making media. Other news are often about new features from companies like OpenAI, or about Claude. But Claude for example has no public API, so if I wanted to integrate it into home assistant I couldn't do that anyways. Anyways, some things are worth mentioning: > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxK9HIxUWGg (Matt Wolfe) - AnimateDiff: https://animatediff.github.io/ is probably the tech behind Pika Labs: https://www.pika.art/ - might be useful for virtual girlfriends or making animations. - BuboGPT: https://bubo-gpt.github.io/ - seems to be good at explaining pictures and audio as well, also in combination! Video LLaMa does similar stuff. - https://co-tracker.github.io for better motion tracking (it works now, code available). - Sketch-A-Shape: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2307.03869.pdf (no code available) AIpreteneur covers similar news than Matt Wolfe: > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSokS2ivf7U But without the interesting stuff I linked above, also he's siding with the actors on strike *yikes*.

I don't think anyone who's been here long enough to rationally grasp what we're all actually up against here is likely to give you much backlash. I know that I wouldn't (in fact I'm probably the loudest voice here currently NO ONLINE ACCESS FOR OUR ROBOWAIFUS, EVER :^). But the primary issue here is the model training costs in equipment, electricity, and time are exorbitant to say the least. Far outside the purview of any typical Anon. OTOH, we are trying to find a way around this (without resorting to the Globohomo's models) by devising a way to share the load across many anon machines: Robowaifu@home (>>8958). If we here or others can succeed with this approach -- and there is a metric boatload of groups today who now understand the fundamental threat to freedom of speech the GH is, who are all trying -- then this could easily become a complete sea-change for the entire domain of AI. I pray we succeed at it! :^)

Also as long as she has no body why looking like a ugly bot, and if she has then why not looking more like a companion doll? Journos and women are just nuts. >testing some quantized local llm's for "offensive language" and "wrongthink" We probably need one to work for that. That's it. It doesn't matter what the ones for tasks and knowledge think of your language. >we can't scrub that out completely.

A bit of an oddity that "might" come in handy. There's a company that makes software make 3D human for animation. http://www.makehumancommunity.org/content/makehuman_120.html So they decide to pair up with a university and using the universities AI software make...MakeTherapist http://www.makehumancommunity.org/blogentry/announcing_maketherapist.html Crazy. It appears to be online but the good news is they say you can download the therapist part by asking the university. I wonder...could you use this therapist AI, which you would think, likely has to show some sort of empathy, to be the foundation for a robowaifu? Train it on the other parts it needs. I don't see where to download this AI or even where the program resides but looking at the Univ. staff and what they are working on it appears these two guys I bet would know something about it. Peter Mozelius,"...Currently, I am trying to delve into how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Virtual Reality environments could be enhanced through Artificial Intelligence...." https://www.miun.se/en/Research/research-centers/CER/Forskning/our-researchers/peter-mozelius/ Felix Dobslaw,"...Artificial Intelligence Supported Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Treatment of Speech Anxiety in Virtual Reality Environments..." https://www.miun.se/Personal/felixdobslaw/
>>24747 >I wonder...could you use this therapist AI, which you would think, likely has to show some sort of empathy, to be the foundation for a robowaifu? That certainly makes sense to me Grommet. Of course during Current Year it pays to be profoundly-skeptical of anything that's besmirched with Globohomo contamination. Very-obviously """Psychology""" is one of the forerunner-mechanism tools driving their intentional societal collapse. Personally, I much prefer the great idea of Anon using material resources created <=1950's, such as training guides for girls on how to please a man, for training robowaifus as well. Obviously, they couldn't be good housewives without learning good empathy and compassion. >=== -minor edit

>>24747 For me, A.I. art, music and actors are the least of my worries. Footage coming out of Ukraine confirms that the killbot hellscape is now a reality. What's more, the technology is being embraced at pace as both sides are desperate to kill each other faster. They currently have drones controlled by human pilots generating lots of training data for future swarms of autonomous hunter-seeker drones. You train them all on tens of thousands of hours of target footage (both in daylight and night/low-light infra-red) to identify human infantry and heat signatures, then program them to patrol and attack all targets within a defined perimeter. People believe that they can generate an EM field and disable all the drones, but EMI hardening has been a thing for so long now that you can buy strings of EMI hardened strip-lights from military surplus. On top of that, the use of cluster munitions is now par for the course, along with deployment of both boat and submarine OWA drones. Just the other day I saw footage of an infantryman getting his head blown off at night by a drone that may have had those quieter, toroidal propellers (it was hovering only tens of feet above him as it dropped the frag and he was oblivious). The drone escaped undamaged. Imagine being fragged out of the blue by DRONE_NAME_HERE for the the cost of a few hundred bucks. This shit has evolved to be way darker, way faster than I imagined it would.
>>24758 Hi SophieDev, so good to hear from you Anon! I hope you are doing well. We all welcom hearing from you and miss you when you're not posting. Any new design ideas for dear Sophie running around in your head lately?

>>24758 >Ukraine It's heart breaking and terrifying. It makes me so sad. It's same old shit, "them" setting up us to murder each other. I saw a video the other day these Uk's got out of a APC. Well one of them steps on a land mine. Others try to help, they step on landmines, ended up three or four of them with blown off legs. It's sickening and demoralizing. And I don't hate Russians or Ukrainians. I can see very well Putin's reason for drawing a line in the sand and I can see also why Uk's would not want to be invaded.

>>24771 >Is it being seeded actively, do you know? No I don't. I wouldn't have anywhere to store such a large thing but sure would like it if I did. You might could try one torrent and see. They say specifically if a torrent is not seeding to contact them so I assume they will torrent any one you want and that they do want torrents of all to be available. They store books on the IPFS which is a distributed global file system. I wish they would torrent over I2P which is my favorite for torrenting files, movies, etc.(they actually use magnet links) A warning, the java I2P is likely or will be pozzed now or soon. The I2Pd Russian c++ version of the network is not. If you download the java version of I2P you can go back to the 2.1.0-0 version which is the "likely" last version sure to not be pozzed. If anyone is interested I can talk further about this. Where should I...meta???? I2P is fantastic. Chobitsu you might be interested in a site there. The server is built right into the software. So if you have a computer, I2P and internet access then you have a fairly strong encrypted and hidden site out of the box while paying no server fees. There's a DNS built in to I2P where you can register a namespace/url.
>>24772 >If anyone is interested I can talk further about this. Where should I...meta???? Yep sounds good. And yes I was aware there was a non-Java client tool available (definitely recommended of course). >Chobitsu you might be interested in a site there. Yep, I've mentioned using IPFS before now. If we experience another gayop debacle similar to the one where 8ch was killed, then I'll probably carve out time to focus on getting that together at some point. If so, we'll automatically replicate legit posts over from whatever public-facing IB we use then. >=== -minor edit
Edited last time by Chobitsu on 08/21/2023 (Mon) 17:41:40.
>>24773 Looking at the "topic" here it fits so no meta. I want you to understand that I2P is NOT IPFS. I think you know that but it's a necessary to point this out on the "very unlikely" event, that you do not. Not trying to insult you but there was a bit of ambiguity in what you said. I2P encrypts everything between random servers. It's much like Tor but doesn't have a built in off-ramp to the normal net. It has a built in distributed DNS but can work with just large hashes for addresses. It's servers are not set or special like Tor. They are random and made from it's users. It builds tunnels of data. The numbers of hops that a tunnel goes through before it goes to a site is normally 3 but the amount can be changed. Each server gets data, unencrypts it and then if needed passes it on to another sever. At some point a server finds the actual destination and the data, encrypted, from it is sent back on a totally different set of tunnels. So no easy trace back. The tunnels are constantly changing their servers. I think every ten minutes. The deal on java I2P is it is or likely is eventually being pozzed. History. I2P was originally created by jrandom who disappeared completely. A guy called zzz picked up the pieces and has been for around ten years or more running things. It was publicly known who he was or at least intel knew because he went public events along with another guy who did a lot of work called zlatinb. One day zzz, the guy, the main honcho, the big kahoona, just vanished and his forum site, the site, disappeared with not one damn word. The guy who took over the running of I2P I think, I'm fairly sure is a Jew. I know this solely because of the way he talked/wrote. They have a certain way of writing that very distinguishable, at least sometimes. I also said something that triggered him, really bad, I can't tell you what it was and it surprised me that he was triggered but after seeing him write stuff for years I guessed the reason it was it triggered him and it corresponded with Jew mentality(I never meant to trigger him). It was not anti-semantic, let's just say I figured it out. This guy running things now is not a code guy. He weaseled his way in over many years by dealing with a lot of administrative type task. Web site stuff, packaging. I think he got the keys to all the sites, forum etc. and then locked zzz out or, God forbid, they killed him and tortured the keys from him(are you paying attention Chobitsu!!!!, don't let the administration out of your control, ever!!!) . Ok so they say zzz quit because the present guy running things wanted to change the terms of service to some sort of globalhomo,"all are welcome...some stuff like that". BUT zzz personally said he would never run off all at once like jrandom did. I think personally he is dead because these people have no morals at all and no one works at something for over ten years, then disappears and says, not one damn word. zlatinb another developer quit at about the same time and said he was going to enter a monastery(threatened)????? zlatinb did a lot of low level stuff in I2P and created a file sharing program. Good programmer. They both had just finished a really big upgrade that spectacularly increased the speed and usability of I2P. Very impressive. I've been using on and off for, maybe a decade and this was a huge game changer. Awesome speed compared to before. They had been having problems for years and this cleared it up. Super fast torrents if there were a lot of seeders. Anyways that's when they both disappear. Now zlatinb lost access to the forum BUT his program he made had a github page https://github.com/zlatinb where he said that I2P java was unsafe and there was some strange stuff going on. My assumption is they didn't have the pass to his github page so he could talk there. I personally believe that a Jew weaseled his way in and over the years gained control of passwords and then locked out and/or killed zzz and forced zlatinb out. Standard procedure. Done a million times.(this guy was around for years before he struck) cont.
cont. The last known good I2P by zzz was i2p 2.1.0. Myself I thought I stopped the update by deleting it from I2Psnark(built in torrent program that also updates) and turning off updates. But it did update. So I took the last known zzz update i2pupdate-2.1.0.su3 renamed it to i2pupdate.zip(this file name will update I2P to that version), then put it in my program folder and it updated it backwards rolling it back to 2.1.0. I turned off updates. This remains so. So I'm running the last version and no updating. So you can get, for now, a newer version and update backwards to the last known good version and stay there. Here's the magnet file for that update. i2pupdate-2.1.0.su3 magnet:?xt=urn:btih:70260ca39b2867a59f46d81db85eecb256b9365c&dn=i2pupdate-2.1.0.su3&tr=http://tracker2.postman.i2p/announce.php People are still seeding this. Rename as stated above and put in I2P program folder. Make sure and turn off updates in the administrative page. I2P works in a browser. It may very well be that the update after this one is good but it was not signed by zzz so... I expect they will wait a while then start changing things to pozz it and screw up the network by forking it somehow and adding spyware. I intend eventually to start using I2Pd as java I2P can no longer be trusted. As for utility it's excellent. I won't say that it is totally anonymous. But to find out where a server is or a user is would take a good deal of resources though. It's far harder to crack than Tor. You would have to have a huge number of servers to track users or sites and even then you could not be 100% sure where a site or user emanates from. This is of course why they went after it. The best way to use this is to get a portable browser and change the network proxy setting. I2P talks to port 4444 and 4445(double check this to make sure).At one time you could use Tor browser to do this. I'm not sure if you still can, because Tor browser has taken to changing some things around. Make sure and add noscript plug-in and other blockers BEFORE you change the proxy settings. For torrents you can download a java I2Psnark standalone, which is nice, or you can use BiglyBT which has a plug-in you add for I2P. BiglyBT does everything. Make sure and turn off regular internet access in BiglyBT and turn on I2P in the options and it will only use I2P to torrent files. People should use this to torrent movies and whatever. The more people use it the harder it becomes to find who is who. I leave it running all the time. Another thing is you can download torrents from the regualr net by cross tracking from BiglyBT useres. If they have regualr interent AND I2P on at the same time it will torrents from the regualr net to I2P. I get a lot of TV shows from this. When they come out there's a lot of seeders on normal tracking sites. I enter the magnet(regular internet but it has the hash in it) and 99 times out of a 100 another tracker will have I2P and normal net and I can get the show on I2P. So you can DL popular torrents from the regular net through cross seeding both nets usually. And to reiterate. I2P has a built in server. You can load YOUR site into whatever folder you pick on your computer and it will run it just like a server that you pay fees for. I would love for robowaifu to be on I2P. If I could just use I2P it would make me happy. On the other hand far less people know about it. Even though it's a better solution. I think the reason is simple they don't have a one step browser download like Tor which is really convenient. I personally think Tor is pozzed but I'm not doing anything that threatens the system so... I think if they decide to go hard in the west and shut it down then Tor will lock up and disappear as a source of info. I bet there's a kill switch to it.
>>24775 >Not trying to insult you but there was a bit of ambiguity in what you said. Lol no are you kidding? If I'm wrong about something I'm hoping some Anon here will be kind enough to point it out to me! We're all grownups, r-right? :^) >BTW, I did confuse the two haha. :D --- Wow, treasure-trove of info on I2P lore, Anon. I knew some of this before, but not to this detail. 'Something's rotten in Denmark', or so the old saying goes? >And to reiterate. I2P has a built in server. You can load YOUR site into whatever folder you pick on your computer and it will run it just like a server that you pay fees for. I would love for robowaifu to be on I2P. If I could just use I2P it would make me happy. OK, well that sounds way simpler than I thought. I'd expect we can even configure Bumpmaster's directory layout to integrate properly with I2P when the time comes. I'm guessing then that we could have as many active, online backups of /robowaifu/ going as there were users of Bumpmaster who wanted to share their backup of the board over I2P; is that correct, Grommet? >I think if they decide to go hard in the west and shut it down then Tor will lock up and disappear as a source of info. I bet there's a kill switch to it. I think you're definitely correct, and I also think the corruption of it is already in process; at least in part. And they don't even need any surmised 'kill switch' either -- they can simply block the Tor network directly. I now have to use a Tor Bridge with my ISP, for example. >=== -prose edit

>>24777 >If I'm wrong about something I'm hoping some Anon here will be kind enough to point it out to me! I'm exactly the same way. It does not bother me a bit if I make an honest mistake. It cost nothing to say,"whoops I misread that and made a mistake". But if I think I'm right...I will give a fight. BTW I think my battery estimates are too high "for just waifus" to amuse you for a few hours, sit around and not do too much, but if you depend on it to take care of people or do any serious work, then I think they are accurate.

>>24758 iirc AI tech has already been in use for a while now. it was in 2021 when iirc Israel first admitted and released footage of one of their drones operating on AI, taking out a terrorist hideout. Israel, and its vassal state, the US has almost surely been using it for much longer. I do think we're still quite a ways off from humanoid killbots.atleast a decade or two. but there's no need for humanoid ones when there's so many other superior designs.
>>24777 >OK, well that sounds way simpler than I thought. I'd expect we can even configure Bumpmaster's directory layout Bumpmaster??? You speaking Albanian?? I know very little about servers. I know you ask for a resource or file from them and they feed it to you. That's about the depth of my knowledge of internet servers. I know that some have programming in the server of many sorts, php, etc. but I don't know how that would work with I2P. Remember that people will not use JavaScript that read any source on I2P, unless they are idiots, so you have to use old school type stuff to serve things. I think, not sure. If you get a chance you should try to load up I2P, the present one even if it's pozzed, and claim the site name robowaifu. There's a registration there for the DNS. It has a duel system. Internal DNS and also you can enter a long numerical address. You could claim the name and just put up a placeholder pointing here with an explanation. There's a board to do this. You can always update backwards to the likely safe zzz program. It has built in torrent downloader called I2PSnark. It's very good and a torrent tracker called postman. There's a TON of good stuff on there and it's all anonymous. I see 13489 torrents being tracked right now. Don't let me freak you out on using it even if it will eventually be pozzed. I think they will definitely try to sneak in later. Too many people watching and they don't want to burn it. And I think their main focus is system stability not anything else and neither you or I threaten that. There's also encrypted email on there. It;s really good. Before zzz disappeared they hacked away at this thing for like a decade to continuously improve it and they have.

>>24759 Hello Chobitsu! Sophie and my 3D printer are both still mothballed up in my attic. The more I worked on her and looked at the prices of sensors and proper harmonic drives, the more I realised I had bitten off way more than I could chew. I would still like to finish her off and make her into a singing animatronic one day, but unfortunately work has taken over. What can I say? Robowaifus cannot pay the bills or go food shopping or make meals (yet). Also, tbh I realised that I had been addicted to videogames for a long time, so I have been working on overcoming that instead. My gaming PC is now dismantled and mothballed too, so I don't have any temptation to waste time on videogames. I am forcing myself to use a laptop which can just about run Open Office and connect to the internet. I have been studying maths (and Buddhism) though. So busy at work lately that I am still just learning basics and pre-algebra. Such is life for a recovering addict. 😄
>>24775 >where he said that I2P java was unsafe and there was some strange stuff going on Thanks for bringing this drama up, I was not aware of anything like this. Please take what I am about to say with a grain of salt, currently I have just been using TOR & just started looking into I2P. My ISP sucks and I am stuck behind CNAT, so to expose a few self hosted services to the internet so I can use them while not at home I use TOR and host a tor onion service. Here is the repo that mentions java version not being safe: https://github.com/zlatinb/muwire This is the explanation https://paste.i2pd.xyz/?77b8e66d0f366f87#BSA1kWMHpbAjFbRVRqQdf25feRQJ1sBY4mTDVNvs5dxj I don't think there is an intentional backdoor being added by the Java I2P people (right now), it's still open source software, what is going on is a power grab, this is an expected move for that type of people. Now that being said, I don't imagine people on that side of the "culture war" are going to be making the best quality code, also Java I2P is already bloated. More bloat is also more potential security holes. I also do not think anyone was killed, when someone gets pushed out of there own community & bubble its hard to feel motivated or empowered. globohomo has embedded it self in a lot of our culture, so I'm sure they felt that they are alone and dropped out of the internet for a while & abandoned the name. Not sure if I agree with the idea of using an older build of Java I2P. I'd look into using the C++ one, and writing a good thank you to the people fighting the good fight, Let them know there not alone.
>>24804 I found a mistake in my post, I just checked and its called CGNAT not CNAT, it stands for "Carrier-Grade NAT"
>>24802 >I realised I had bitten off way more than I could chew Got to take care of the basics first. Take care of yourself.
>>24804 >I don't think there is an intentional backdoor being added by the Java I2P people (right now) I agree. I noted that I think it's ok above but...at some point they will pozz it. I always hear,"it's open source so it's safe", and I say code that has been used for decades has eventually been proven to have serious bugs. I can't remember which but I think it was ssl stack or something OpenBSD did eventually proved to be compromised. How many people can follow through millions of lines of code? Next to none. >power grab, this is an expected move for that type of people. For thousands of years. Same old story. >Java I2P is already bloated. More bloat is also more potential security holes. Maybe but zzz did serious work n this. He really cleaned it up by consistently hacking away at it and pushing code every 6 weeks so that he would be forced to constantly improve it. I don't think he was the best programmer but he was doggedly consistent and determined to go over every inch of it. He did a great job. You have no idea of the vast increase in usability and speed he brought about. A order of magnitude or better. I know I've used it for maybe a decade?? a long time. >I also do not think anyone was killed It would not surprise me if he was dead. He has said nothing. His forum is gone. Complete silence. I also suspect zab is not telling the whole story and is under strain not too. He has only lightly touched on what happened. I suspect threats. This happens all the time. Anyone who seriously threatens the globalhomo eventually is murdered or jailed. >Not sure if I agree with the idea of using an older build of Java I2P. I'd look into using the C++ one I agree but I have been using an older portable browser that I went through all the add-ons, glitches, and it was a lot of work. I turned off everything I could find that was not 100% necessary. I despair of going though all this again. What I have works and as I said I'm not threatening the actual system so...it's good enough. I'm not convinced that newer is better. I used to think that but over some I see this is mostly fake. BTW there is a I2Pd c++ browser bundle called purple I2P. They can't bundle the actual firefox browser because of...I don't know why, but they say they can't, but it downloads and scrubs the long term release Firefox and sets it up for I2Pd c++. In their manual pages there's also a link to a I2PSnark torrent portable program. It's fairly good.

AMD APUs (on-board GPUs in the CPUs) can use more RAM now and run AI, which is kinda big, since AI inference doesn't need so much compute but a lot of RAM and it seem to work with at least up to 16GB: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/RCxcw-OrWIc - though I think they mentioned up to 64GB somewhere else.

For some reason there is an unhealthy obsession over the leaderboard-ification of LLMs, and meming with silly names for useless models (WizardVicunaUncensoredXPlusPlatypus). Hopefully the open efforts are redirected towards evaluations, speculative decoding, MoE, open IFT data, and clean pre-training datasets with over 10 trillion tokens, otherwise, there is no way for the open source to compete with commercial giants. ... >HuggingFace’s leaderboards show how truly blind they are because they actively hurting the open source movement by tricking it into creating a bunch of models that are useless for real usage. ...

Everything else is just "useless". The article isn't completely readable for non-subscribers, but it seems to mostly go into Googles TPU supremacy after the free article.
>>24926 Oh that is really cool, you can get really small motherboards for AMD APUs like the tiny asrock ones. This could lead to affordable ML inference on small and commodity hardware.

Dave Shapiro covered it, I only follow him because of his work on Cognitive Architecture. I'm not promoting his view on the topic in general, though it's certainly not the worst since he's for open source: https://youtu.be/rp9_YdVjNaM Sam Altman moved a bit more towards open source, but they're the most vocal about licensing, it's just in their business interest. Zuck is "our man" for now, but probably just because his business is different. Tristan Harris and Bill Gates seem to be the main supporters of restrictions, but I think many others just want to create "educated" elites and institutions first, but those would be leaning towards regulation. They often just seem to want privileged access for researchers and maybe some other groups. So, institutions around science and education for example could assign privileges to some people, but the models wouldn't be open to the public. Others probably just want regulation to protect their (possibly high paying and political influential) jobs. Musk is pushing for a dedicated regulatory body for AI, about which I'm not sure, but maybe it might prevent other interest groups from overregulating the field.
>>25359 seems pretty pointless although when companies push for regulation its probably an attempt to deregulate something else, wasnt there a bill or sc ruling that made it illegal to censor and delete content that doesnt break any laws? obviously 'muh ai - havent you seen the movie' would be a convenient way to introduce a liability shield to do whatever you want with impunity, fantasy and makebelieve worked for the ecoterorists so why not ai for tech companies, now that i think of it the laughable e.t. nonsense also comes from the military so yeah to each their own i guess and let the best illusion gain total immunity like cough cough

RoMeLa is working on replacing restaurant workers and chefs working for food delivery companies, without using humanoid robots. I think this will be good for developed countries with worker shortages, and also rather wealthy guys who want to live in more rural areas while having something that can prepare a lot of different meals: https://youtu.be/8SsgzCbYqc8 >Introducing Project YORI, a flexible and expandable cooking robot system prototype being developed by RoMeLa in collaboration with Woowa Brothers. YORI stands for “Yummy Operations Robot Initiative” but it also means “cooking” in Korean. >Unlike most other cooking robot systems, YORI is designed to be expandable to cook almost any type of dishes. At this point, YORI can cook steak frites, fried chicken, pasta, and brownies to name a few. With its proprioceptive actuators, the robot can perform tasks that other conventional robot arms cannot, such as kneading dough which requires force control, or tenderizing meat by pounding which requires impact mitigation. Instead of trying to mimic how humans cook, we approached the problem by thinking how cooking would be accomplished if a robot cooks. Thus the YORI system does not use the typical cooking methods, tools or utensils which are developed for humans. For example, the YORI system utilizes unique chemical sensors to make sure the food is cooked to perfection and the ingredients are fresh. The system does not have hands either - it uses custom tools for each tasks which are automatically installed at the end of the robot arm via a tool changer mechanism.
