Robowaifu Propaganda and Recruitment Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 05:39:42 No.2705 [Reply] [Last]
Attention drawfags and writefags! Your skills will be needed. The task of building and designing a robowaifu is a herculean quest. As great as this community is, /robowaifu/ simply does not have the manpower to real our goal of DIY robowaifus. Luckily for us there are several communities on the internet that we could find new recruits or allies to help us build our waifus: MGTOW - These guys know all about the legal pitfalls of marriage and the dangers of feminism. There is already a lot of talk about sex robots in MGTOW communities. It shouldn't be a hard sell to get them to come here. Incels - Guys that can't get laid. The opportunity for love and companionship should be enough to bring some of these guys over. We need to be careful when recruiting from some of their communities. We don't want to attract negative attention. Monster girls/furry/mlp fandoms - The only way these guys are going to be able to have their harpy/elf/goblin/anthro/pony/whatever gf is with a robowaifu. They have an interest in seeing us succeed. Again we need to be careful here not to attract the wrong kind of people that will bring us the wrong kind of attention. Male STEM students - Generally these guys aren't going to get laid until after they have established themselves. A robowaifu could really help them. This may be a harder sell because many of them have been brainwashed in university, but they have skills that we could really use. Transhumanists/biohackers - Many of the technologies involved in building a robowaifu could be used in transhumanist or biohacking applications such as building an avatar. They may have some interest in helping us out. We will need to be careful which transhumanist communities we go after as many of them are full of feminism, tumblr tier sexualities and genders, and SJW's. Cyberpunks and technophiles - These guys (and they are usually guys) are all around into technology and may just enjoy working on the kinds of projects we need to do. They are often into programming and AI.

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?

>>3083 I have noticed a very serious design flaw with these legs and I am surprised no one has pointed it out. How are you going to spread her legs?
Open file (97.51 KB 1500x667 HipMovements.png)
>>3167 Haha good point. I'm sure a good solution would be arrived at, they say necessity is the mother of invention after all. I think the design we see in nature is the best to follow on this issue if possible. A robo-hip-joint is needed ofc. My designs use biomemetics of the human form and include a ball & socket approach for the hip. After all, it's literally the most efficient design for all the motions needed. A 3-axis servo design could be devised as well in a case like this. It might serve well enough, I think. The whole system for leg motions is an oft-neglected masterpiece of engineering and aesthetic design.
>>3167 Think something like these would be better?
>>3209 Now you've got the idea Anon. 3-axis motion will basically be necessary for our robowaifu's 'hip' joints.
>>3092 there is freecad https://www.freecadweb.org/ i haven't used i personally but it looks pretty good, and i know some anons have.

Wheelchair Waifus Robowaifu Technician 05/12/2020 (Tue) 00:38:56 No.2983 [Reply] [Last]
Ideally our robowaifus would be MORE able than normal humans, but we just aren't there just yet. As we all know there are lots of engineering challenges to building a full sized robowaifu. One solution to these is to just build smaller waifus as >>2666 suggested, but I am assuming most of us don't want a short stack. My solution to the problems involved with balance, heating, and power requirements is just to give our prototype robowaifu crutches and a wheelchair. It would be much easier for our robowaifu to walk with crutches than on her own two legs and in the beginning she would probably only be able to walk short distances even with the crutches. An electric wheel chair would solve the issue of balance entirely. A wheel chair could also have a number of different systems and components mounted to it. Batteries, cooling fans, sensors, and processing units could all be mounted to the wheelchair, and we don't have to worry about the chair being pretty. A cripplebot, while not an ideal final product, would be great for prototyping designs and systems that could be used for later designs especially those relating to sensors, bot navigation, and movement. Our prototype could also be fully sized as well. What do you think /robowaifu/, should our first prototype be a cripple?

>>3208 Hmm. That's not a bad idea. It presumes a fair degree of leg functionality all on it's own, but certainly less-so than say, crutches do. I don't really much want to bring it up but feel I should, is the idea of a torso-only robowaifu affixed to a mobile platform. She'd basically be for headpats-only, but at the least she could move around and cook, do some types of cleaning, and have conversations, etc. That approach would allow our AI researchers to make progress faster, our facial-expression technicians and artists & hand dexterity engineering guys too as well. It's an idea, and one that is definitely on-topic ITT. Mentioning Hanson Robotics brought the idea back to my mind. >>3137 They worked with a Korean research team and affixed their Albert Einstein head to the teams Hubo robot I think it was? These sorts of Frankensteinish approaches are not only doable for our type endeavors here, they are probably inevitable as well. May as well have this conversation too while we're at it Anons.
>>3211 Seems like a centaur or spider waifu would be more aesthetically pleasing than a wheel bot.
>>3213 Certainly some of our /monster/ friends might think so! One thing's obvious though, quad, hex, or octa-ped robotics certainly are fundamentally less tricky to design for stability than bipedal systems are.

Datasets for Training AI Robowaifu Technician 04/09/2020 (Thu) 21:36:12 No.2300 [Reply] [Last]
Training AI and robowaifus requires immense amounts of data. It'd be useful to curate books and datasets to feed into our models or possibly build our own corpora to train on. The quality of data is really important. Garbage in is garbage out. The GPT2 pre-trained models for example are riddled with 'Advertisement' after paragraphs. Perhaps we can also discuss and share scripts for cleaning and preparing data here and anything else related to datasets. To start here are some large datasets I've found useful for training chatbots: >The Stanford Question Answering Dataset https://rajpurkar.github.io/SQuAD-explorer/ >Amazon QA http://jmcauley.ucsd.edu/data/amazon/qa/ >WikiText-103 https://blog.einstein.ai/the-wikitext-long-term-dependency-language-modeling-dataset/ >Arxiv Data from 24,000+ papers https://www.kaggle.com/neelshah18/arxivdataset >NIPS papers https://www.kaggle.com/benhamner/nips-papers >Frontiers in Neuroscience Journal Articles https://www.kaggle.com/markoarezina/frontiers-in-neuroscience-articles >Ubuntu Dialogue Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/rtatman/ubuntu-dialogue-corpus >4plebs.org data dump https://archive.org/details/4plebs-org-data-dump-2020-01 >The Movie Dialog Corpus https://www.kaggle.com/Cornell-University/movie-dialog-corpus >Common Crawl https://commoncrawl.org/the-data/

(I checked catalog and the thread I'm killing has zero replies anyway) I've never heard of this ib before, it got shilled (with a link to this subreddit) on 8k/cyber/. So apologies for a lack of knowledge of board culture, I'm just making the assertion that any activity is good activity once you leave the core internet. I'm a wizard. I don't know what that means to you, but it probably gives you the right general idea. What it means to me is: "The words you speak, the words you read, the words that enter your headspace regardless of point of origin—all of these create reality in a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. The placebo effect is the point at which magic and science converge, and there's a whole bunch more past that but we're getting ahead of ourselves here". The /cyber/ post said they needed anons of all skills, from their list "artists and writefags" might apply, but to my mind, that is akin to asking for a mechanic by saying you need a socket wrench. The Word is simply one of the most versatile tools of my trade. Anonymous as a collective (that is to say, all anons across all imageboards) are liable to be familiar with meme magick, or "memeing things into existence". I am here to validate any suppositions that this is a reality. Allow me to elucidate as I elaborate: None of the images attached to this post are "random", each was selected purposefully. Each of these images has a history, and that history ties these images to the consciousnesses of thousands (and, indirectly, hundreds of thousands) of real, living, breathing humans—humans who are, by the principles of all the old traditions, the most energetically ideal construct for manifesting a desired reality—as one darkskinned christian put it to me quite succinctly: "The power of prayer [belief] is amplified in groups.". There are, of course, dozens if not hundreds who believe me to be playing a game, pretending to be something unreal. For every such individual, there are at least a hundred more who know that I am quite legitimate. The point is: I like your vibe. What use have þe for a wizard? The only limit is your imagination.

>>2967 Unironically, thanks for participating with us Anon. We'll all manage this someday, and then you can do as you wish with your own robowaifu.
>>2967 >>2968 That wasn't OP, btw. I dunno how much of a pu55y you have to be to get scared off by "we won't openly support occultism" as though the word "occultism" means the same thing to everyone who reads it, but I've got stronger bones than that. Btw magic crystal rocks and junk work; there's some details in the molecular structure of them that matter but mostly it's the fact that it's a physical object that generates positive feelings when you look at it because it's pretty and/or has positive memories attached (finding the rock was a pretty awesome moment for whoever found it). You could use a resin sculpture just as easily and most of the rewiring for its matrix takes place server-side anyway. The takeaway from this is: Find something, a cool rock you find within ten miles of your house would be ideal, and put it near your workspace in an area where it will be infrequently disturbed. Declare in some capacity that you're wiring it into that wyrd internet wizard's network. Congrats, you've got wiznet to your house now. Pictures of rocks are appreciated but ultimately unnecessary. Also like I said it can be your waifu sculpture or whatever IDGAFOS, I'd be a shitty wizard if I needed you to do ultra specific things for me.
>>2940 Thanks BO, I know many probably would criticize this decision, especially given there was a precedent, but I appreciate your stance. >>2942 Hello Wizard Anon. I can't help but be somewhat sympathetic as I have been a longtime lurker of /x/ and /fringe/ boards. Like BO I am a Christian. On the surface of it my own Mother Church is very hostile to what many call occult but on the other hand there is a deep tradition of Hermeticism that is often unacknowledged in men like Pico della Mirandolla and Valentin Tomberg who interpret many so called "occult" subjects in a different light. 1st pic related, Hermes Trismegistus depicted in the Cathedral of Siena. >from everything I can discern, the biblical prohibitions against witchcraft and sorcery, when taken to their original language (english is a translation, after all), they all refer to the same thing: Mediumship and communication with the dead. >As best I can tell, majiq (that is, real majiq) is a personal relationship with God manifest through miracles The way we interpret magic is to be any power that comes from a source other than God, and witchcraft more specifically comes from Satan or other demons. Even something like raising the dead can be done as long as it is in accordance with God's will. One of the prophet's did this in Ezekiel 37. When we pray we do not "manifest" anything, but we speak with God and with the Saints who are in Heaven, who speak to God on our behalf. We cannot reach those in Purgatory until they move to Heaven, and those in Hell are beyond our reach. Most likely any other voices would be demons. Prayer itself is a personal relationship with God. Those who wish to take this further move into the mystical realm of Theosis, which is as close to God as one can get. It involves abandoning yourself to His will, not becoming a god yourself, but wholly to become a part of Him. I can't speak much on this as I have never practiced it and I think you would need to dedicate your life to it entirely to do so to any effect. > And of course, the reality of placebo (that is, the fact that placebos can be a valid solution to very real problems) is the crossover point where prayerful people, magi and scientific layfolk can find common ground, agreeing that there is certainly SOMETHING at play behind the scenes that we still are learning to comprehend. I consider Hermeticism to be this search to understand what it is going on behind the scenes, and while I don't consider it essential to our salvation (Christ gave us everything we strictly need to be saved), it can be incredibly insightful, and gives us an advantage against the evil powers in this life. This is why I embrace this search though I do have to condemn "magical practice" in the sense that I described earlier. >Figure out a way to let a spirit directly communicate with a computer. I'm wondering what you think of TempleOS if you have heard of it. Terry Davis created it based on instructions given to him by God and used it to communicate with Him. I'm trying to make up my mind about it. >>2953 >It needs to be actively opposed on every level in my opinion. To do anything less is a disservice to humanity.

>>3151 >Thanks BO, I know many probably would criticize this decision On the contrary I believe most would support me in it, actually. But that's neither here nor there tbh, I'm not looking to other Anons for guidance on this. I'm not trying to win a popularity contest in the eyes of either man or of angels. I simply seek God's blessings on all of us here--we're all going to need it heh! Openly allowing for the kind of occultism that generally leads directly to Satanism is quite obviously in opposition to that goal is all. >I think robowaifu is an important part of combatting the evil influence we face in the undermining of both women and men. As do I. I am simultaneously deeply disappointed and angry at seeing the state of destruction of our entire.civilization., men and women, boys and girls all included. This isn't just grousing, rather it is blatantly obvious to anyone who is awake and cares. This is quite literally a time of crisis for our civilization, and most are oblivious and mentally and emotionally numbed by complacency, happily sucking away at the Netfl*x teat, or chasing the next vapid 'like'. And where others may see absolute degeneracy in robowaifus, I personally see a ray of hope & faith, one of salt & light. My hope is they will bring a much healthier outlook on life and a vitality otherwise missing from many men's lives. Robowaifus won't ultimately prevent the West's demise in the end, but they may dramatically improve the lives of some millions of men at the least, before such time. As such, devising free & open robowaifus that any man can enjoy is an endeavor deserving of focus and passion. Much moreso than say, the initial successful ascent of Mt. Everest, or even something as remarkable as the first Moon landing. This mountain to climb is far more essential to the well-being and happiness of many lives in my opinion, and I consider that outcome a worthy goal of diligent pursuit.

Early Business Ideas Robowaifu Technician 05/13/2020 (Wed) 22:36:03 No.3119 [Reply] [Last]
So those of us getting ready to make prototypes are still pretty far away from building the $2000 kits that we need to buildm. This sucks because we are going to be spending a lot on the initial investments, but I think I know how we can make a little money on the side to help on the side; twitch and fansonly. Betas and simps give their money to thots all the time on those site I'm positive they would give money to a crude prototype especially if it offered something unique. Bonus points because we are making money of simps, and we are taking business from thots. If you have any idea on how to make money in the early stages feel free to share them, anon. > related thread: >>1642

>>3126 Pretty sure Project Melody is a dude using an AI voice changer. Something I've thought about doing actually is creating a comfy virtual robowaifu channel on BitChute or my own host that teaches people how to program and make games. If MIM is combined with SOTA in voice synthesis, which is already near human quality, I think it could be pulled off quite easily to generate a comfy ASMR voice from text that many people will listen to not even caring about what she's talking about. Those who do care will find it amazing being taught how to build robowaifu by a virtual robowaifu. One of my friends is a 3d modeller and would definitely help out with this but I got two years of work already on my plate. Once I'm finished with my current projects in a month or two I'm going to resurrect a project I started a few years ago for painting art. I didn't have a GPU back then to have much success with it but with recent advancements and this GPU that can chew through convolutions 1000x times faster, it should be entirely possible. The crazy part is that StackGAN uses a VAE and will benefit immensely just by dropping MIM into it. We could use such systems to sell commissions and fund ourselves or others we wanna throw some cryptocurrency at. It doesn't have to be just art either. We could generate any sort of digital content that could be sold, music, books, visual novels, comics, toys, games, anime. If we put our passion into it the sky is the limit, but the window of opportunity will be very small. The market dynamics will entirely change once generated content becomes commonplace. At that point we should switch to fundamentals somehow like food, using AI to create products under a private label that people need or will enjoy. Another option is to create a cryptocurrency trading bot. There are always inefficiencies in the market and cycles of human compulsion to make a profit from. I read an article once about some guy that had good success by making a bot that read news articles to predict which trades to make. He was making somewhere over $1000 a month consistently. Building these things takes a lot of time and effort though. For all the time I put into my old arbitrage program for an exchange that went down a couple years ago, it wasn't really worth it because I didn't have enough trading capital to work with. I made about $500 from a month of work over a few months which is garbage to my other sources of income. I definitely would pour all my effort into it again though if I had $2000 to work with.

>>3148 >Nigga, did you even look? haha, ok i'm properly chastened. >opencv i had to write gpu-code for an oscar-winning film studio using cuda and opencv. trust me, opencv was by far the more enjoyable experience. give it a look anon. >The fuck are you doing that's so much fun?

FUUUUUUU Why'd you have to go putting it like that!!? D:< I'll try to dig up another even older haha box to setup from scratch. I can't afford to fugg this one up. I'll see what I can do about the model thingy sometime soon.

Making money with AI and robowaifus Robowaifu Technician 11/30/2019 (Sat) 03:07:12 No.1642 [Reply] [Last]
The greatest challenge to building robowaifus is the sheer cost of building robots and training AI. We should start brainstorming ways we can leverage our abilities with AI to make money. Even training AI quickly requires expensive hardware and computer clusters. The faster we can increase our compute power, the more money we can make and the quicker we can be on our way to building our robowaifus. Art Generation Waifu Labs sells pillows and posters of the waifus it generates, although this has caused concern and criticism due to it sometimes generating copyrighted characters from not checking if generated characters match with training data. https://waifulabs.com/ Deepart.io provides neural style transfer services. Users can pay for expedited service and high resolution images. https://deepart.io/ PaintsChainer takes sketches and colours them automatically with some direction from the user, although it's not for profit it could be turned into a business with premium services. https://paintschainer.preferred.tech/index_en.html I work as an artist and have dabbled with training my own AIs that can take a sketch and generate many different thumbnails that I've used to finish paintings. I've also created an AI that can generate random original thumbnails from a training set. In the future when I have more compute power my goal is to create an AI that does the mundane finishing touches to my work which consumes over 80% of my time painting. Applying AI to art will have huge potential in entertainment and marketing for animation, games and virtual characters. Market Research

If you just want money, what about trying for grants? If you can ninja successfully you're creating something that will eventually displace stronk, independynt roasties, and instead market it as 'medical assistance robotics' you might have a shot OP.

I've been looking into this from the perspective of using machine learning to simulate waifus. The hardware costs are insane to use something like the largest GPT-2 model though, ~$600 for a rig to run the AI or ~$250/mo on the cloud. That's not feasible to sell to a single person unless they're a Saudi prince.

As a developer, it's become very clear somethings are needed to be closed source for the sake of making money to further develop robotics. What are some of your suggestions:? Ideally the physical body should be relatively open source. But, arguably, having the software open source is far more important. Maybe, open software, and a kit is the best way to go?
We need Tay.AI 2.0... remember /machinecult/ and Guacman?
>>1881 Yes, most of us here do. We're getting closer week by week Anon, and ours looks to be much closer to Tay herself, and quite unlike Guacman.
