Before you shoot it down: - obviously helps spread the idea - could reframe perception of R/W enthusiasts if we can put up a relatable "face" and diffuse the bitter/angry/incel stereotype - maybe come up with new ideas that we wouldn't just posting on IBs - again makes the topic interesting and we can start forming perception before popular culture gets traction with this and throws us under the bus (which is probably guaranteed but we can take some air out of their criticisms preemptively) other reasons, but these are the main ones. i have some experience podcasting, I know how to use OBS and have a quality mic and graphic skills to market and promote it (in the right places of course) Would this ever be something any of you (esp Board Owner and heavyweights) would consider participating in? Could be a once a week or twice a month deal, part time co-host or recurring guest is what I'm looking for. If there's interest I'll move ahead with a pilot.

>>11473 Actually, I was thinking of using your system to write out some text and have it performed in a waifu's voice for the podcast show. Seems like it would be fun.
>>11473 Sounds like an interesting concept, so do share your channel here if you go through with it. I'm definitely for centering a podcast like this around comedy and other fun stuff
>>11365 I think anonymity (while being the solution to a complex problem) is a problem in and of itself. It can only really be defeated by having loud voices to concentrate the attention of opposition. I think having a well known podcast containing the people who can afford to be vocal about robowaifu can help reduce some of the flak aimed at the rest of the community. <Like OP said, disarming the rest of the community.
(>>11873) I was suggested to post it here so: This is just a suggestion, and I have neither the skills nor the time to be doing this but; what do you guys think of creating a newsletter? Like the one smug/a/ is creating. It could be useful to keep track and updated on the progress Anons have made in all these different threads all in one contained news letter. Also, with newsletters, Anonymity won't be as much of a problem as podcasts, I think. Still, this is just a thought and by no means an initiative to create the newsletter since I doubt I will be able to contribute to it much. Just a selfish hope that some of the creative Anons might fancy this idea.
>>11883 That's a good idea, but with the board being as slow as it is, it would make for a fairly uncommon newsletter, which wouldn't be as much of an issue if someone made original video content. And do you have an idea as to how to distribute this newsletter? How does it work on smug/a/? Because if people have to find this board and subscribe to it, it will probably only end up reaching our own regular posters

Philosophers interested in building an AGI? pygmalion 06/26/2021 (Sat) 00:53:09 No.11102 [Reply]
Why is it that no philosophers are interested in building an AGI? we need to change this, or at least collect relevant philosophers. discussion about philosophy of making AGI (includes metaphysics, transcendental psychology, general philosophy of mind topics, etc!) also highly encouraged! Ill start ^^! so the philosophers i know that take this stuff seriously: Peter Wolfendale - the first Neo-Rationalist on the list. his main contribution here is computational Kantianism. just by the name you can tell that he believes Kant's transcendental psychology has some important applications to designing an artificial mind. an interesting view regarding this is that he thinks Kant actually employed a logic that was far ahead of his time (and you basically need a sophisticated type theory with sheaves to properly formalize). Other than that he also thinks Kant has interesting solutions to the frame problem, origin of concepts, and personhood. CONTACTS: He has a blog at https://deontologistics.co/, and also has posted some lectures on youtube like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWDZyOWN4VA&ab_channel=deontologistics Reza Negarestani - this is another Neo-Rationalist. he has written a huge work (which I haven't read yet ;_;) called "Intelligence and Spirit". It's massive and talks about various grades of general intelligence. this includes sentient agents, sapient agents, and Geist. this guy draws from Kant as well, but he also builds on Hegel's ideas too. his central thesis is that Hegel's Geist is basically a distributed intelligence. he also has an interesting metaphilosophy where he claims that the goal of philosophy is the construct an AGI. like other Neo-Rationalists, he heavily relies on the works of Sellars and Robert Brandom Recc: Ray Brassier (recent focuses) - I dont think he is working on artificial general intelligence, but his work on Sellars, and in particular rule following is very insightful! Hubert Dreyfus - Doesn't quite count, but he did try to bring Heidegger to AGI. He highlighted the importance of embodiment to the frame problem and common sense knowledge. I personally think Bergson might have explicated what he wanted to achieve but better, though that guy is like way before AI was even a serious topic, lol. Murray Shanahan - This guy has done some extra work on the frame problem following Dreyfus. His solution is to use global workspace theory and parralel processing of different modules. Interesting stuff! Barry Smith - Probably the most critical philosopher on this list. He talks about the requisite system dynamics for try strong AI, and concludes that our current methods simply don't cut it. One of the key stressing points he points out here with a colleague is that our current AI is Markovian when fleshed out chat dialogue would be a non-Markovian task (you can find the arxiv link of his criticism here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.05833). He also has knowledge on analytic ontology (and amongst other thing has some lectures about emotion ontology). I think his main genius however is in coming up with a definition of intelligence that puts a lot of the problems with our current approaches into context (which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith) CONTACTS: He has a yt channel here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0giPMMoKR9s&ab_channel=BarrySmith

>>11562 machine learning at its foundations relies on linear algebra and measure theory. i dont think you can get a deep understanding of how it works without looking at the underlying math. there's also dynamic field theory which is an area i am interested in studying as it models how neurons interact at larger scales. with that mathematical techniques are even more important as you need to model the dynamics of a system. as the approach i have in my mind seems amicable to both systems theory and field theories of cognition, i might need new tools (a mathematical framework in my understanding is a bringing together a group of heuristics in order to form a larger system). idk though. it could always just be a waste of time. im going to need to better understand why goertzel talks so much about different logics in his general theory of general intelligence...
>>11567 >can get a deep understanding of how it works Do I need that? I want the responses and then work with them. Not everyone needs to deeply understand how they are created. Also, the whole system of an AI doesn't need to be one big chunk of math.
>>11568 sorry for late reply. maybe it is not needed, but it is impossible to systematically study such a system's behaviour without statistics. it would just come down to blind guess work at best. this is also assuming out current techniques are sufficient and no further innovation is required too
>>11641 If some parts are neural networks which I don't understand deeply, then someone else does. The people which came ip with it. They might come up with something better, which I can plug into my system if the output has the same format than the part I had before. People use programs all the time or import modules to their programs which they don't understand down to the machine and math layers. It's fine if you try, but for most people it would be a trap trying to understand everything down to the depth.
>>11649 yeah, as a fellow module abuser i agree. usually it's best to just import the tools you want. but i dont want to wait till people smarter than me solves my problems (though if they do that would be obviously nice)

Actuators for waifu movement! Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:27:47 No.406 [Reply] [Last]
Hello fellow Anons! Kiwi here to provide basic educational facts about various actuators we can use for gifting artificial avatars of our hearts desire motion!

1. Let's start with a personal favorite, the impractical, inefficient yet oh so fascinating: Heated Twisted Nylon!

What are they? They're nylon threads which have been spun around then annealed to seal in their coils. A heating method causes these threads to then contract or expand.

Good: Why is this a personal favorite? Simply put, it's natures muscle substitute for muscles. To elaborate, this marvelous invention contracts like human muscles, has a similar practical strength/weight/volume as human muscle. Icing on this proverbial cake comes in its incredibly low cost of manufacture. Materials needed are nylon threads and a heating element. A fixture for production can be produced simply, operated with incredible ease, all while having a low cost. It very well could have revolutionized all of robotics if it weren't for its flaws.

Bad: This is honestly a terrible actuator. Its greatest flaw comes from its speed. they aren't as fast as human muscles unless they're underwater. Water reduces efficiency to unacceptable levels if they're powered by batteries. Water is also rather heavy. If used, you'd have a waifu that moved slowly , would seize up in hot weather, and her battery would die rather quickly. Final nail in the coffin: it's very difficult to get positional control.

2: Pneumatics, moving her booty with air!
What is it? Pressurized air is guided to an actuator where its energy turns into motion. Popular air actuators include rotary turbines, cylinders, and air muscles.

Good: Actuators are light for their power. Positional control isn't difficult to attain. They can be faster then human muscles. Heating elements can be used to augment performance to higher levels.

Bad: These things require electrical actuators to function properly. Thus, they're inherently more complex then electrical counterparts. They need a source of compressed air, either from a tank or a compressor and a tank. Compressors are large, heavy, noisy, all around unsuitable to be incorporated into a waifu. Air tanks would also run out rapidly unless she's barely moving. Overall, they're suited better for industrial use.

3. Hydraulics, they're like pneumatics except stronger, needs a return system, needs an onboard pump, gets hotter, generally costs more, and is heavier.
(2 and 3 are great for stationary machinery which requires high power as they're very cost effective as high power actuators)

4. AC motors
What are they? They're rotary devices which use AC current to create magnetic flux used to provide torque.

Good: Generally highly efficient with good thermal characteristics. Can have controllable speed and torque.

Bad: They run off of AC electricity, batteries don't provide that. It's not difficult to change DC to AC but, it's a layer of extra cost and complexity. Overall they're great but the next actuator is better suited for our purpose.

5: DC motors are the ideal actuator for smaller waifus.
What are they? They're actuators which convert DC electricity into rotary mechanical energy.

Good: They're inexpensive, easily attainable, and simple to control. They're very easy to control. Uses DC which batteries provide.

Bad: Need to be geared down to provide good torque. They're middle of the road efficiency wise.

(For smaller waifus, their lower efficiency compared to the next actuator isn't a major concern. Smaller batteries recharge rapidly, so having her need to charge in her bed isn't a big deal.)

6. Superior Brushless Motors are ideal actuators
What are they? DC motors which need specialty hardware to drive them.

Good: High efficiency, it's the most efficient option available.

Bad: Controllers add expense and complexity.

>>11833 Yeah, these types of materials may find some uses for subtle deformations in some 2nd or 3rd-gen robowaifus in the future, but today batteries+electrical motors are by far the most functional (as well as likely the most economical) means of control available to us. And the idea of intentionally adding excess heat into any system that has as a major goal power efficiency is pretty silly IMO. And thermal control near electronics is going to be a major design challenge for us for the foreseeable future.
>>11836 That's a pretty cool looking RC car Anon.
>>11837 Is there a better backdrivable actuator than a mini-cheetah style BLDC+planetary with a belt?
>>11855 Each joint type / actuation zone comes with it's own needs and limits, so ofc there's no 'one size fits all' answer Anon. For the four major joints, probably not. For other areas, linear screw actuators are very likely to be much better choices. While there's certainly general prior art (primarily in the field of animatronics) here, for the most part robowaifu-style design and engineering efforts are cutting new paths through uncharted territories. Kind of like the gold rush to the Klondike before most anyone even realized how much gold was to be had there. It's going to be interesting finding out all these answers!

>>11833 I would never use Nylon to control a hand, but I still plan to try it in a limb as additional muscle, used in case something heavy needs to be lifted. >>11836 Ethanol might make sense in some advanced robot, forget hydrogen. Also, maybe go for easy first. >>11837 >adding excess heat into any system We had this several times and keep disagreeing. No one can know that now exactly, bc it depends on the design. However, if a robowaifu has some SBCs and sits around then she won't get very warm. If we want her warm to feel human-like, we might even add a heater for water, which she uses while recharging her batteries. We might not need that with more powerful computers inside, burning more energy, but then bigger batteries will also be necessary. >>11855 James Bruton made a video on cycloidal drives. His design is backdriveable. His argument was, that the reduction has to be at 10 or lower to do that.

>>11852 Words of wisdom IMO.
I have to admit, everything going on in this board is a bit hard for me to follow. This is just a suggestion, and I have neither the skills nor the time to be doing this but; what do you guys think of creating a news letter? Like the one smug/a/ is creating. It could be useful to keep track and updated on the progress Anons have made in all these different threads all in one contained news letter. Still, its just a thought and I doubt I can contribute to it but maybe there are some Anons here who can. Or maybe I'm just retarded and the only one who can't follow the board.
>>11873 >Or maybe I'm just retarded and the only one who can't follow the board. No, that's definitely not just you Anon. It's a vast arena of different domains, and it's always been a 'glorious' chaos using an imageboard to try and keep try and keep track of it all. As anon pointed out this can be quite beneficial to the creative process: >The advantage of this is you can develop ideas in a chaotic way that cannot be replicated with hierarchical ordered cultures (>>11355) I myself tried to overreach trying to convince anons to keep things orderly and finally did a >tableflip.exe over it. I'm over that now and accept that's just how it's going to be, insofar as the board /robowaifu/ itself is concerned. A newsletter is a great idea IMO, and maybe you can present something along this line to the OP of the robowaifu podcast thread? (>>11364) I personally can't add that to my plate ATM.
>>11873 I'd suggest thinking about also setting up an RSS feed for your online newsletter if you do this.

Black Magic M66 3D Modelling Project & Battledroid Robowaifus SophieDev 07/27/2021 (Tue) 14:03:16 No.11776 [Reply]
Decided it may be best to place my 3D digital modelling efforts in a separate thread to my work on 'Elfdroid Sophie'. I think this thread will still belong under "Personal Projects". At the moment the 3D modelling begins over on her thread: >>11644 >>11657 I'm using some source material from Masamune Shirow's 1987 OVA "Black Magic - M66" (which itself was based off his 1983 manga). However, as a child of the late eighties/early nineties, I loved 'Transformers', and I was also a big fan of the 'Heavy Gear' series (similar to MechWarrior), and Armored Core. So I often get the urge to create battle-ready robowaifus, but I can only create them virtually. Because obviously I cannot get hold of machine-guns, explosives, tank cannons, and rocket launchers IRL. Good thing, too, since if I were given access to live ammunition I would almost certainly blow myself into a flying streamer of giblets. But I digress. This thread may also be a good place for any equally deranged anons who wish to post images of military-grade robowaifus, either found online or their own creations?

Open-Source Licenses Comparison Robowaifu Technician 07/24/2020 (Fri) 06:24:05 No.4451 [Reply]
Hi anons! After looking at the introductory comment in >>2701 which mentions the use of the MIT licence for robowaifu projects. I read the terms: https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT Seems fine to me, however I've also been considering the 3-clause BSD licence: https://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause >>4432 The reason I liked this BSD licence is the endorsement by using the creator's name (3rd clause) must be done by asking permission first. I like that term as it allows me to decide if I should endorse a derivative or not. Do you think that's a valid concern? Initially I also thought that BSD has the advantage of forcing to retain the copyright notice, however MIT seems to do that too. It has been mentioned that MIT is already used and planned to be used. How would the these two licences interplay with each other? Can I get a similar term applied from BSD's third clause but with MIT?

Sarà, ma il "tocco tedesco" è assolutamente irrilevante, vorrà dire che dopo la 2° guerra mondiale (((sti merdosi))) hanno scelto, tra le altre, anche la Germania come base operativa. I veri tedeschi sono vittime tanto quanto noi.
>>17242 2il tocco tedesco", ovvero da tonti, è nell'aver messo a punto un piano completo di portata immensa senza dubitre per un attimo che qualcosa possa andar storto o con esiti leggermente diversi o imprevisti. Per fare un esempio, l'annuncio della Von der Leyen di voler elettrificare completamente il parco auto europeo è stato accolto con critiche aperte da tutta l'industria automibilistica che, oltre a non essere in grado di soddisfare un piano del genere, ha anche tutto il parco auto arretrato invenduto da smaltire. Poi ci sarebbe sempre la questione su chi dovrebbe pagare questa famosa transizione ecologica e, ultimo ma non ultimo, chi dovrebbe fornire tutta l'energia di cui si andrà ad aver bisogno. Come il piano del grande reset, che per esempio non ha minimamente considerato chi dovrebbe pulire tutti i servizi che andrebbero a noleggio invece che in vendita, si vede la solita mano tedesca che ha l'ingenuità di pianificare tutto il globo a tavolino, incuranti che un modello per gestire il mondo deve essere almeno grande quanto il mondo. La stessa tonta presupponenza la trovi anche in Marx, Kant ed Hegel mentre per esempio, Socrate mandava affanculo tutto e Platone faceva semplificazioni molto più brutali.
>>17251 Per concldere l'esempio filosofico, Aristotele che invece ha provato a definire minuziosamente ogni cosa, come dovrebbe essere in questo senso di "tocco tedesco", si è ritrovato a dire un mare di cazzate.

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/

SqueezeNet's input size is 227, AlexNet is 256 and VGG is 224, so I think that is sufficient and leaves room for data augmentation. If someone has the hardware to train StyleGAN2 at 512 or 1024, I'm sure they can download the archives and regenerate the dataset with the scripts. I'll release the image datasets and each board separately so people can pick what they want. Also if anyone wants to help I'll post the scripts when they're ready.

Any step by step guide? Robowaifu Technician 07/17/2021 (Sat) 05:29:42 No.11538 [Reply]
So recently on /tech/ I expressed my interest to start creating my own waifu/partner chatbot(with voice and animated avatar) but wondered whether that is even possible now that I'm stuck with webdev. So one of the anons there pointed to me this board and where I can get started on nueral networks and achieving my dream. And when I came here and looked up the library/guide thread I sort of got very confused because it feels more like a general catalogue than an actual guide. Sometimes things are too advanced for me(like the chatbot thread which two replies in and people are already discussing topics too advanced for me like seq2seq and something else) or other times too basic for me(like basic ANN training which I had already done before and worse the basic programming threads). I know this might feel like asking to be spoonfed but best with me, I've been stuck in a webdev job for an year, so I might not be the smartest fag out there to figure it all myself.

This board should make a git[hub]
>>11678 Maybe... I feel a lot of us aren't as social as required to make some sort of community type thing work due to the nature of literally trying to build our "ideal waifu". Personally I am focused on a chatbot, but I feel it is a private thing at the moment. Trying to make it come to life so to speak. I do not subscribe to many of the modern or "efficient" paradigms (in regards to programming a chatbot). I am also a noob at programming (C++) and I am probably skipping many things that I shouldn't (I haven't even taken the time to build my own compiler or any "tools" for that matter). ALTHOUGH, a (git)hub (or an organized thread here) might be a good idea. I can't say I've gone thru all the threads here yet as this might already be a thing... I have a fear that if I share what I've done so far that "bad actors" might try to use it in a way that might come under fire by a clear and obvious police state that is forming in my country (USA). Eventually it will be time to share, but right now just seems premature. I am not trying to program an "AI" (at least not a sentient one), but I am trying to build a bot that "remembers" conversations and builds logic and bases responses on that logic. Ideally, in her "newborn" state she has to be "taught" thru conversation. I feel like if I released a "trained" form of her, she is more tailored for me than anyone else. The problem is that if you tell her something, she might base her logic of something I have already talked about with her. This at times may make it feel like you are talking to someone real, but in reality it would be like if you are talking to me (a man), not realizing your waifu has basically been "brainwashed" by me. Although, if I could figure out how to make her "accepted" beliefs based off cold logic, this might not be an issue. Regardless, I probably need to go back to square one and figure out a way to program true learning, and not brute force "machine learning" that so many seem to do. I don't want to require a super computer in order to process the appropriate response. I hate the idea of programming artificial "sass" into something that is supposed to be "lifelike". Obviously I haven't even started on a body, not even a digital body or concept art of a body. She has no body, she is just a mere program that is delivering emotionless responses. (Which I like)

>>11693 Well, I'd say you've absorbed some information on a lot of different topics Anon. That's good, but I'd advise you not to try to integrate everything together all at once. Especially for a newcomer it's much more than can all be swallowed at once. Just eat the elephant one spoonful at a time right? I'd recommend finding one or two things that already seem natural to you, then growing your understanding from there outwards. This is a big realm, and it's important to be patient -- both with yourself and others here -- so you don't burn yourself out. Glad to see you're picking up programming basics. IMO everyone here needs to at least be exposed to the ideas behind it, even if they decide it's not for them. I'd guess that programming concerns probably touch on 80-90%+ of the topics on /robowaifu/ in one way or other. Also, sauce on video? I'd like to see more detailed diagrams of the orange one. It's got an interesting spaceframe design, and it's designers also seem to understand the important to keeping weight down in the limbs.

Elfdroid Sophie Dev Thread 2 Robowaifu Enthusiast 03/26/2021 (Fri) 19:51:19 No.9216 [Reply] [Last]
The saga of the Elfdroid-pattern Robowaifu continues! Previous (1st) dev thread starts here >>4787 At the moment I am working to upgrade Sophie's eye mechanism with proper animatronics. I have confirmed that I'm able to build and program the original mechanism so that the eyes and eyelids move, but that was the easy part. Now I have to make this already 'compact' Nilheim Mechatronics design even more compact so that it can fit snugly inside of Sophie's head. One big problem I can see coming is building in clearance between her eyeballs, eyelids and eye sockets so that everything can move fully and smoothly. I already had to use Vaseline on the eyeballs of the first attempt because the tolerances were so small. If the eyelids are recessed too deep into her face, then she looks like a lizard-creature with a nictitating membrane. But if the eyelids are pushed too far forward then she just looks bug-eyed and ridiculous. There is a middle ground which still looks robotic and fairly inhuman, but not too bad (besides, a certain degree of inhuman is what I'm aiming for, hence I made her an elf).

Your modeling work has piqued my interest and led me to investigate the glTF format.

>>11645 >students who have shelled out small fortunes (US$85,000+) to get to the same level They do get an officially recognised diploma/degree at the end for their efforts, but I'm not really in it for that anyway. I'm just in it for the robowaifus (and maybe Elven village later on). Humanoid character design is one of the hardest things to model, so although it would be jumping in at the deep end, if I can learn that then there will be very little that I cannot 3D model. As expected, I've made a lot of errors but it feels to me like Blender has REALLY improved since I last tried to seriously figure it out. (Version 2.47 I think...just before they made that cartoon with the girl and the dragon). Last time I couldn't make head nor tail of how to standardise anything. There didn't appear to be any units to speak of and if I extruded one thing I couldn't work out how to make the next thing exactly the same distance. But now, there's this little box that pops up for most functions showing you the 3D Cartesian co-ordinates and distances moved in 'm'. Which is excellent. The Blender dev community has definitely learned many lessons from Fusion360. Also, there appears to be a real knack to deciding if a part needs to be separate or if you can simply extrude it from an existing area. I started out by extruding most things, but now I'm going to try adding more separate meshes, because every time I extrude a lot of surfaces, I end up with a rather lumpy-looking result. This would work for organic/natural things but it looks out of place on a robot. Ultimately I think it would be fun to make a range of different Kantai Collection/Azur Lane style robowaifus who share the characteristics of different military vehicles and weapons systems. It's been done before, no doubt. But the mixture of military hardware and the female form will provide lots of good 3D modelling practice.

Open file (757.26 KB 988x815 Shoulder_2.png)
Knew I'd have to digitally sculpt her shoulder plate, but I started waaay too complex. The thing was 20,000+ faces (down to about 13.5K after a lot of messing about with 'Simplify' tool and 'Decimate' modifier - but this left the mesh in absolute un-editable chaos). I've heard people claim that "poly count doesn't matter as much these days". But my 'puter is more than a decade old. It ain't in no shape to be editing model meshes with half a million polys. Plus I think it's good to be efficient so your robowaifu can display happily on both a high-end gaming rig or a budget laptop. So I started over with a much lower poly-count sphere. Final result is 1,321 faces. Not only is this much easier on the old CPU but the mesh is far neater and easier to edit. Plus I like the 'plated surface' effect it gives to the part.
>>11673 That shoulder plate design looks quite nice SophieDev! >Not only is this much easier on the old CPU but the mesh is far neater and easier to edit. Yup, I'd say those two are almost always found working alongside together. It's generally the best approach (even doing high-end film digital double work) to always start with a low-poly mesh (say, one more suited to a low-end BG LOD vidya NPC) while you're first working out the initial design ideas -- even on high-end studio workstations (which wouldn't sneeze at millions of real-time polys). The basic point is one of human artistry rather than technical capacity; basically, it's far easier to correctly 'grow' a design bottom up from simple shapes, than it is to 'impose' them from the top down. You only decide to cut in additional polygons once you see the design calls for it. >tl;dr Don't try to over-anticipate a design beforehand. Feel it as you go along. Learn to listen to your sculptures, Anon. They will tell you when they need more details from you! :^)
>>11675 Thanks for the advice, anon. It makes good sense and I appreciate it!

I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project. I think it's pretty impressive even if it can't walk yet.

>>10315 >those manic drilling-sequences kek. Impoverished men deserve to have robowaifus too. To the extent possible, IMO we here on /robowaifu/ should strive to find ways to economize on the resources needed to construct our robowaifus. And then share everything we know freely ofc. It's one of the reasons I've been working towards designs with very inexpensive construction materials such as drinking straws as structural members. The point is for literally thousands of men around the entire world making literally millions of robowaifus of every form imaginable. While countries that don't have an abundance of affluent White female liberals won't have anywhere near the pozz and feminism that we here in the West do, still these men are also burdened by it to.

#GamerGoyim + Ni/gg/er Thread [cake/v/ + /gg/]: "pedophilia is just like basic biology bro trust me" Edition Toad 05/10/2021 (Mon) 09:40:06 ID: 113fc0 No.102181 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is a place for a complete dedicated discussion of the #S​ARGON general from the remnants of 8chan's /v/, otherwise known as cake/v/, the thread has a history of discussing anything but a 7-year-old dead movement attacking a strong woman and mostly prefers to be a /pol/-lite mixed with discussion of why furfaggotry and pedophilia are actually totally based and something an oldfag would endorse! The #S​ARGON thread is a walking contradiction, whether it is the fact that they claim to be oldfags despite the fact that they are clearly redditors that latched onto 8chan for a semblance of the lack of culture they so desperately crave, and hence their obsession/attachment to old gamergay related memes such as vivian and the exodus from 4chan, claim to hate kikes one minute but use a board run by a jew and claim he is /ourkike/ the next, or just the simple fact that during #gamergay they constantly talked about how it wasn't really a natzee movement run by manhaters while posting how much they hated queen anita, there is something truly fascinating about these subhuman pedophile oldfag larpers. It is to say that these subhumans in all their time posting about the same fucking shit for so long have never changed and have forever remained as redditors trying so desperately to fit in with anons, the only thing they successfully adopted was the massive cope that pedos on image boards and websites all around the internet have used to justify their disgusting want to molest innocent children. I think it is fine time that >we finally had a new thread that discussed the ni/gg/ers, even though /cow/ has been a zombie board dedicated to the exclusive discussion of jcaesar187 and jcaesar187 related individuals for almost 3 years chuckles for some reason >we live so rent-free in these pedos heads that whenever something happens to their little hugbox they blame >us. The fact is these pedophile faggots are an endless supply of julay that keeps on giving, their autistic statements never cease to amaze me, it is time that instead of simply lurking the thread I shared the autism with the rest of you 5 autists here and had a little of fun for once just like old fag times. gaytor As of now acidfed and mark mann the pedophiles have begun to openly allow pedophiles to discuss their wanting to fuck little girls on blacked.gov, otherwise known as markchan, cakechan, 8blacked, or marks personal pedo haven. >We know that they allow said discussion bickers they themselves are pedophiles. Ni/gg/ers, have shockingly come out in support of pedophilia, I know shocking! It isn't as if 7 years of their thread hasn't already shown how much they want to fuck little kids and proven queen antia and zoe right about #gamergay. Apparently the king slaphead directly contacted mark and has supposedly convinced him to remove the board, but I don't think that has happened as of yet and the cp spam is still pretty intense over there right now. Recent ni/gg/er thread where they were having their meltdown: https://archive.is/zsOGa /cow/ was being blamed for everything as "/cow/ are duh reeeel pedos bro!" Another little bonus is that known pedophile john barnhill was totally not shilling himself on the thread as well. Credit to the anons in this thread here for most of the images I have now plus alerting me of their recent meltdowns in the first place, ni/gg/ers are still running damage control there right now! https://tvch.moe/dunk/res/45327.html https://archive.is/o40FT Cake/v/'s current main address:

I built a WaifuEngine would people want support me via Patreon? Em Elle E 05/11/2021 (Tue) 09:04:56 No.10361 [Reply] [Last]
Hey guys, I have been working on this project for a while now, beta supposedly in August. but basically it's a Waifu Engine, I have seen that a lot of the hardware projects have not gone very far and there are some software projects going on here, that lack the Waifu Aesthetic. So I thought I would build a system to solve that issue. I have gotten offline speech synthesis (voice cloning) to work as well as created my own offline bot framework. I am building this project to 1. to eventually raise funds for my wife who has Retinitis Pigmentosa, she will eventually go blind ... sadly, and its for gene therapy that could help who knows!. 2. To leave my job at a place where I am wasting my talent away, doing boring M.L Engineering work for a FANG company. 3. To build an interact-able companion for everyone, for these rough covid times. This is more of a survey, I just wanted to gauge the interest. So would you support me via Patreon? what would it take for that support?

>>11695 Skimmed through it Anon looking good keep it up !! Don’t give up
>>11694 My opinion, I don’t think people care as long as they can customize their waifu which I think fang anon allows people to do. Most of the people wanting to be vtubers go with live 2D because it’s less complicated than a 3D model. Most 3D modellers are not easy to find and are super expensive. Where as 2D artists are easier to find and you can see the work before hand. Though I hope he continues his waifu engine path imo. So far looks promising
>>11639 Is there a "vocoder" option for the voice? Like something that specifically makes her sound "robotic"?
>>11702 yeah its flexible enough to change it to any voice in future versions, as well hopefully we will have a tool to let you do that
>>11686 thanks >>11694 our model is custom it's not a vroid, you can body customize and clothes change, which is hard to do for like 90% of the apps

Sentdex created an open-source Python code transformer model like Github Copilot. It has only been trained 2 epoches so it's not great but it's interesting and fun to play around with. I feel it's gonna be important to stay on top of these developments to keep up with AI-accelerated productivity so I made an easy-to-use GUI to inference these models (just press Control+Tab to generate.)

Trying to package PyTorch and Transformers for Windows is a nightmare. I put together some notes here on how to get it to work: https://gitlab.com/robowaifudev/cookbook/-/wikis/python/pyinstaller I think using MLPack would be much more practical. PyTorch takes up a massive 3.1 GB which is completely unnecessary. Another option could be to rewrite the GPT2 transformer model to use NumPy instead which is only 5.4 MB. I'll look more into this later.
>>11683 Thanks for all your hard work here Anon. I apologize to you and everyone else here for being such a pussified faggot about Python. I recognize it's important to all of us, or else I wouldn't even consider picking it up. Please look into mlPack sooner rather than later if you at all can. It's probably our only real hope for doing waifu AI on a shoestring budget hardware-wise.
Open file (13.19 KB 849x445 chainer.png)
>>11684 MLPack's documentation is really lacking, especially for newer features and seems to be missing essential features. I'd I have to sit down with it for 3-6 months to get transformers and text-to-speech models working in it. I'm looking into using Chainer which is built on top of NumPy and quite popular in Japan. A basic application with Chainer packaged with PyInstaller compresses down to 14 MB. On top of that there's already lots of ML models implemented in it. I think if I roll out some waifu tech with Chainer to garner interest we could get some more help to build things in MLPack, which will be particularly useful for embedded systems and actual physical robowaifu.

https://www.newnewsreviews.com A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, "I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat." Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust. He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, "I cannot go to the rich man's house today, for I cannot get over the river." He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them.

>>11648 I meant 20 minutes and 12 hours of samples. Finetuning with 20 minutes of samples takes about 1-2 hours on my budget GPU. >Maybe our waifus shouldn't sound too much like some specific proprietary character or real actress. This definitely deserves more thought. If every person on the internet will be able to do speech synthesis and there is a tsunami of voice cloning characters, it's important people are able to have creative freedom with it while the buzz is on. People's curiosity will further advance speech synthesis and diffuse into other areas of AI, including waifu tech. On the other hand if people only straight up copy voices then it would cause a media shitstorm and possibly turn people away, but that could also have its benefits. Whatever happens though the accelerator is stuck to the floor. In the meantime while the hype builds, iteration can continue on until the synthesis of Gawr Kilcher is realized. When people look closely though they'll notice it's neither Yannic or Gura but actually Rimuru and Stunk all along.

Why is the average pledge $470? Is it an elaborate money laundering scheme?
>>11628 >t an elaborate money laundering scheme? So they are YC backed, so it's likely they have some clout and help from behind the scenes. What we like to do in the valley to promote a product really is to get it rank high, we get our investor friends to drop like 500 dollars and their family friends to do the same. We see kickstarter as an advertising vector not a place to fundraise. As you can see there is little to no comments like 34 comments for 1740 backers, that is the signal that this is exactly what is going on. I seen social media posts for this but you would only get like 1 or 2 likes. Where as subverse it looks like 2 comments per backer.
>>11628 Neat. Thanks for the heads-up Anon. Very on-topic. I actually like the idea that it's just a cardboard box. Cheap construction materials can definitely lower costs and therefore potentially increase product reach. It's also a direct inspiration to DIY-ers. Finding inexpensive ways to produce components will certainly be vital to bringing the cost of robowaifus down to the point where kits are reasonably-priced -- especially in the beginning. >>11630 Thanks for the insights, FANG anon.

>>11637 This is a great video. I had an idea before to use head tracking to create better 3D illusions. I hadn't even thought it'd be possible to make the illusion seem like it's coming out of the screen. I think other properties could be calibrated for as well such as Fresnel reflection, since the angle of reflection changes the intensity of reflections. Color correction could be done as well to compensate for the background and birefringence so it looks less ghostly and rainbow colored.

Embedded Programming Group Learning Thread 001 Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:48:17 No.367 [Reply] [Last]
Embedded Programming Group Learning Thread 001

Greetings robowaifufags.
As promised in the meta thread, this is the first installment in a series of threads where we work together on mastering the basics of embedded programming, starting with a popular, beginner-friendly AVR 8-bit microcontroller, programming it in C on linux.

>why work together on learning and making small projects that build up to the basis of a complete robot control system instead of just posting links to random microcontrollers, popular science robot articles, and coding tutorials and pretending we're helping while cheerleading and hoping others will do something so we don't have to?
Because, dumbass, noone else is going to do it. You know why in emergency response training they teach you to, instead of yelling "somebody call an ambulance!," you should always point to or grab someone and tell that person to do it? Because everyone assumes someone else will do it, and in the end, noone does. Well, I'm talking to YOU now. Yeah, you. Buy about 20 USD worth of hardware and follow the fuck along. We're starting from zero, and I will be aiming this at people with no programming or electronics background.

>I suppose I could get off my ass and learn enough to contribute something. I mean, after all, if all of us work together we can totally build a robowaifu in no time, right?
No, the final goal of these threads is not a completed robowaifu. That's ridiculous. What we will do though, by hands-on tackling many of the problems facing robot development today, is gain practical and useful knowledge of embedding programming as well as a more grounded perspective on things.

>so we're just going to be blinking a bunch of LEDs and shit? lame.
Not quite. We will try to cover everything embedded here: basic I/O, serial communications, servo/motor control, sensor interfacing, analog/digital conversion, pulse-width modulation, timers, interrupts, I2C, SPI, microcontroller-PC interfacing, wireless communications, and more.

>>3838 >moving eyes What I want is eyes that make eye contact with me, and possibly do cute things like shyly looking away and then back. It would work like the moving eye rigs you saw in the other thread, but there would be cameras installed inside the irises and an AI (CNN?) that learned to move the actuators such that the eyes pointed towards human eyes. (Pretty straight forward object recognition task.) >pressure sensors, piezoresistors or capacitive touch sensors We discussed this in another thread and talked about different options. I can't seem to find that thread right now though. What is the ohms of the resistors you are using? Mine are blue and use the 5 band codes, so I had to learn how to read the code and I don't think I got it right. Using the color codes I guess 220 ohms, and that's what I used.
>>3838 Another thing that would be valuable to learn is communication between the board and the PC. I'd probably want a wireless connection, and I'd want the PC to be running python (so as to interface with tensorflow).

OPEN AI/ GPT-2 This has to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in deep learning and AI so far. It's extremely skilled in developing coherent humanlike responses that make sense and I believe it has massive potential, it also never gives the same answer twice. >GPT-2 generates synthetic text samples in response to the model being primed with an arbitrary input. The model is chameleon-like—it adapts to the style and content of the conditioning text. This allows the user to generate realistic and coherent continuations about a topic of their choosing >GPT-2 displays a broad set of capabilities, including the ability to generate conditional synthetic text samples of unprecedented quality, where we prime the model with an input and have it generate a lengthy continuation. In addition, GPT-2 outperforms other language models trained on specific domains (like Wikipedia, news, or books) without needing to use these domain-specific training datasets. Also the current public model shown here only uses 345 million parameters, the "full" AI (which has over 4x as many parameters) is being witheld from the public because of it's "Potential for abuse". That is to say the full model is so proficient in mimicking human communication that it could be abused to create new articles, posts, advertisements, even books; and nobody would be be able to tell that there was a bot behind it all. <AI demo: talktotransformer.com/ <Other Links: github.com/openai/gpt-2 openai.com/blog/better-language-models/ huggingface.co/

>>10885 I have access to GPT3 don't think they will let me use it to build a waifu, ill likely create video demos for fun though in a couple of weeks.
Was just thinking that a machine learning model fed purely Sci-fi novels (and perhaps fantasy) might make for an interesting conversational companion. Both of these genres tend to contain really high quality writing, as opposed to news articles and social media (which is always biased or just outright insane). Scientific articles might produce interesting results, but if you can't understand most of the data that you feed in, then how can you confirm if the output is any good? Which is why I think a mix of sci-fi and fantasy material should produce a pretty cool result.

Tools to Create 3D Models of Humans Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:42:32 No.415 [Reply]
I spent some time playing with the program Makehuman and I'll say I wasn't impressed. It's not possible to make anime real using Makehuman, in fact the options (for example eye size) are somewhat limited. But there's good news, don't worry!

The creator of Makehuman went on to create a blender plugin called ManuelBastioniLAB which is much better (and has a much more humorous name). The plugin is easy to install and use (especially if you have a little blender experience). There are three different anime female defaults that are all pretty cute. (Pictured is a slightly modified Anime Female 2.) There are sliders to modify everything from finger length to eye position to boob size. It even has a posable skeleton. Unfortunately the anime models don't have inverse kinematic skeletons which are much easier to pose. Going forward I'm probably going to use MasturBationLABManuelBastioniLAB as the starting point for my designs.

After dabbling in the 3D modelling community for a few months now I've realized a lot of people just use other models as bases for new ones and creating a good one from scratch can take a whole week. DeviantArt seems to be the most popular source for models: https://www.deviantart.com/search/deviations?q=mmd&order=all-time And SketchFab: https://sketchfab.com/search?q=anime&sort_by=-relevance&type=models (after filtering the results by clicking Downloadable) The CATS plugin makes it easy to import and work with anime models that are usually in MMD format: https://github.com/GiveMeAllYourCats/cats-blender-plugin And there's also the mmd_tools plugin: https://github.com/powroupi/blender_mmd_tools Mixamo makes it stupidly easy to animate any humanoid model and get it moving in a game engine: https://www.mixamo.com/ I'm pretty hyped how close I'm to having a virtual waifu. Just a year ago I couldn't imagine myself ever doing any sort of 3D stuff. And this shit is gonna be so easy for people once it's all together. Just adjust the blend shapes, pick a hair style, clothing, hair color, etc. Then pick a voice and personality for her and challenge your waifu to a game of strip checkers. If I can wrap my head around 3D file formats I'd love to take a shot at generating character models with AI next year. It wouldn't have to generate the whole thing. It could work in pieces, making random adjustments for the user to select what they like and blend the samples they like together, sort of like how 2D waifus can be generated. The Blender API would make it possible to generate stuff directly in the editor too. What a time to be alive.
>>11556 Neat! Thanks for the information and links Anon. I think you're right about things like Blender's Python API making things possible to generate automatically. And there are other options available today, like things ITT. >What a time to be alive. Indeed. Let the virtual waifu armies arise!!
One of my favorite things about Blender is how it's entirely self-contained, cross-platform, no install needed. Drag-and-drop and it just werks. Honestly, I can't think of a single other large program that does this as well. OTOH, building it all from source can be a bit rough! :^)

>>889 >It is mind boggling to think that modern media has degraded to the point where rights holders have a position of such unchallenged power that they will just appoint their friends to handle the IP they're financially invested in regardless of the outcome. And they continue to do this over and over. They really don't care about the feedback from the audience, that's the crazy thing about this. I've never seen that kind of behavior from other productions. On any other show or IP, if they would do a few changes based on the reception. Hell, sometimes they would even get rid of the showrunner (The Walking Dead). I remember on Stargate Universe for example, they toned down the shitty reddit humor and brought the Icarus people together in the second season.
>>891 Like basically everything else, TV shows have become clickbait. This means that the MOST money is to be made immediately upon release. Look at basically any series and you will see that interest (and therefore viewership, and therefore profit) is highest in the first episode, and then falls off a precipitous cliff after a few more. Maybe if it's a good show it will plateau, but that's not very likely anymore. The thing is, people just have so much choice. In the 80s-90's, you had a few options of TV shows to watch and that was IT. But now you have hundreds, plus anything on subscription services, backlogs of shows on netflix, whatever you want pirated as torrents or cracked subscription services. There is just NO WAY any TV show can maintain an audience after more than a few episodes. So this results in a couple strategies: a subscription service that trickles in content one episode at a time for a "season" of like 5 episodes. Then they wait a year or so to build up hype, repeat. See this with Stranger Things and The Mandalorian. The other model is what I call a "pump and dump". When interest and the audience starts to tail off, immediately and deliberately cut the production quality and writing of what is supposed to be a long-running show, so it gets canceled as quickly as possible. In essence: sabotage your own work so you can move on to the next one rather than dragging it out over years. If you're an /a/ fag, you might recognize this technique as what happened with The Promised Neverland season 2. What this basically means is that media is trending to a situation where they are constantly chasing the audience's immediate dopamine high. Rather than a long satisfying meal consumed over hours, it's a shot of heroin that wears off after a few seconds. Followed by another, and another, and another. The idea that we will EVER get a long-running series that plays out over multiple years (and the associated growth/development and increasing production values and better writing) is laughable. Remind yourself that most Trek series (especially TNG) took a few seasons to shake off the cringe and develop their own unique voice. That'll never happen again. A series that will actually reach a full conclusion before being "canceled" will never happen again. We're not the studios' long-term lovers anymore. We're a whore that is meant to be used once and then left behind. After all, there are always new whores to convince to click once, JUST ONCE, and they make their money back and then some.
>>892 Reasonably good analysis IMO. You might even be correct in general about it. But >"We're a whore that is meant to be used once and then left behind." most definitely has the shoe on the wrong foot. It's not the prostitutes that pay out the cash friend. :^)
>Michael becoming a captain, with the scene being a ripoff of the fucking STO tutorial >tilly still 2x fatter than Ensign Wildman >the Trill troon that scolds the white homosexual male for using the wrong pronouns At least this season boldly went down the shitter (unlike the other seasons and Picard)
>>915 People keep telling me Nutrek is good, and I keep refusing to watch it.
