>Good point BTW anon, I didn't think of it that way but that makes a lot of sense.
Yeah, it's a common experience with engineering complex systems. Even just planning for change becomes more of an undertaking as progress happens. For example, as you're probably becoming aware, software
can become very complex, very fast. There are no atoms involved, and so it's easy to quickly grow things. This is one of the reasons I showed you how to simplify
your code somewhat (>>8931
) simply b/c it makes it both easier to reason about what's going on and also to change it.
But this is all just part of the world we live in, with the physics we've been given. Successful individual engineers and designers (anyone, really) and individual companies learn to manage those challenges -- to everyone's benefit.
I wish you good success as you patiently work through everything with your wonderful robowaifu Sophie, Anon. BTW, you have some good ideas about life with a robowaifu and how to protect her. Fun to think about them.
>but programming all that in together to make machines that can learn? That's the highest form of art there is if you ask me!
I concur with that position Anon. As a professional developer of some years now, I can assure you confidently that it's a very creative process once you gain experience beyond the copypasta phase and actually understand what you're about. This idea of creating an effective AI could hardly be a more complex, creative, and high endeavor from my personal perspective. Creativity required
just doesn't do the idea justice! :^)
>Globohomo in charge and intent on self-destruction
I wish they would
self-destruct. It will be soon enough, heh
Unfortunately, as we're all aware everywhere, they intend to destroy us
. I think that's one of the things robowaifus could very well help to either stave off entirely, or at least reduce the evil outcome of. But only
if the goals of /robowaifu/ and others like us have our way in the matter -- namely, open source robowaifus free from major globohomo encumbrances. We should work quickly, /robowaifu/ .
