Hanson robotics rolls out Sophia as a mass produced robot, but also wants to use it as a plattform for others. The plan is to sell a few thousand units per year: https://youtu.be/6Rha_AxYxdo https://youtu.be/5ORPjfcMHVM LOL: https://youtu.be/R1Mwl6p1enA (Btw, this news is two months old)
>>9742 Well, this will be interesting to watch Anon. What could possibly go wrong?
Europe Proposes Strict Rules for Artificial Intelligence >The European Union regulations would require companies providing artificial intelligence in high-risk areas to provide regulators with proof of its safety, including risk assessments and documentation explaining how the technology is making decisions. The companies must also guarantee human oversight in how the systems are created and used. >Some applications, like chatbots that provide humanlike conversation in customer service situations, and software that creates hard-to-detect manipulated images like “deepfakes,” would have to make clear to users that what they were seeing was computer generated. >But Europe is no longer alone in pushing for tougher oversight. The largest technology companies are now facing a broader reckoning from governments around the world, each with its own political and policy motivations, to crimp the industry’s power. >In the United States, President Biden has filled his administration with industry critics. Britain is creating a tech regulator to police the industry. India is tightening oversight of social media. China has taken aim at domestic tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent. >This week, the Federal Trade Commission warned against the sale of artificial intelligence systems that use racially biased algorithms, or ones that could “deny people employment, housing, credit, insurance or other benefits.” https://web.archive.org/web/20210430211150/https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/16/business/artificial-intelligence-regulation.html Regulations document: https://web.archive.org/web/20210504015157/https://digital-strategy.ec.europa.eu/en/library/proposal-regulation-laying-down-harmonised-rules-artificial-intelligence-artificial-intelligence I skimmed over the regulations and it seems like it's mostly against autonomous AI working without human oversight and introducing requirements to make it more difficult, if not impossible, for small businesses to participate in the market with AI. Some of the regulations are extremely vague though and open to interpretation: >The placing on the market, putting into service or use of certain AI systems intended to distort human behaviour, whereby physical or psychological harms are likely to occur, should be forbidden. I'll bet they'll come up with something like 'gaming disorder' but for chatbots and robowaifus and say they're harmful and distort human behaviour.
>>10284 Importantly though, the military is exempt. And that's where the best A.I.s are going to be developed. Anyone who wants to ban that can do so, and be left at the mercy of their enemies hehehe! Some of the military tech will leak out. It's too lucrative not to. Government might be against A.I., but the military industrial complex (MIC) certainly isn't. Because they are both robotic and A.I. the MIC is (unknowlingly) also on the side of robowaifus! The government has zero power without the MIC to back it up with guns and bombs. So I don't think they'll be able to stop the development of robowaifus. I know there are engineers and programmers in military bases who would add a robowaifu A.I. into their tank, helicopter gunship or fighter jet if they thought they could get away with it. It's just that everything is so documented and legislated (mainly for health and safety reasons) that this isn't permitted.

I think we need to figure out how to fit a womb onto a waifubot. Where's the fun in having sex if you can't procreate?

Repost from a thread on /b/;
>"If you're like me and want to fuck a qt battlebot and get her pregnant, the best place to put an artificial womb is where a normal womb would be on a normal girl. The metal exterior could simply be a bunch of metal plates that unfold to allow space for the womb pod inside. The baby is probably safest inside the battlebot, and if she has good calibration then there shouldn't be problems with her falling and hurting the baby. After giving birth the metal plates could automatically fold back up again, shrinking the womb pod inside so she is combat effective again."

Well /robowaifu/? Feasible?

>>9934 >But then again, since this board is about technology and such topic would be rather about politics and legal issues, it's even not the right place here. Not to dissuade you from that viewpoint Anon (I wish it were true myself), I think you'll discover here that the whole topic in general touches on so many different widely-varied topics (for example, cf. the current discussion on so-called TITS Robowaifu teleoperations >>9712) that political, sociological, economic, military, even spirituality topics all come up. Basically the entire gamut of the human condition is affected by robowaifus (which is pretty amazing if you think about it, coming from a bunch of shitposting anons).
>>8007 >Larger brains require larger heads, and those are difficult to pass through birth canals. With a completely separate artificial womb this problem can be eliminated. Even better.

i want a robowaifu like armitage. would a standalone unit be safer/better or should it be inside the robot
>>10278 I think the general consensus ITT is that a standalone unit will be the safest and most practical. Both for the babies and the robowaifus. Personally, I'm highly skeptical it will even be possible, so my advice is 'don't hold your breath anon'. Maybe they'll prove me wrong, who knows? But you can be certain that as long as things proceed the way they are in the West r/n, it's extremely unlikely you or I would be permitted to freely own an artificial womb unit and produce our own kids. If they ever do come, they will be both outrageously expensive, and outright illegal for anyone outside the globohomo ultra-elite to own them.

Thot in the Shell 1 Robowaifu Technician 04/10/2021 (Sat) 06:58:56 No.9709 [Reply]
TITS Robowaifus The basic idea is that IRL females will be plugged into remote-operation consoles; from there they will have some teleoperational control of robowaifus during engagements. The basic point being human contact for Anon. Obviously, this situation is fraught with both possibilities and hazards. As a board, we had a somewhat extensive discussion and debate on the topic in our first-ever /robowaifu/ council over in the /meta-3 thread (>>9712). As the BO, I had to come to some type of decision on the matter in the end, and here it is: (>>10194). While we didn't actually manage a consensus, my decision was to go ahead and proceed with developing the concept more fully here on /robowaifu/. Therefore, the TITS Robowaifus thread #1 is now open for business -- with two fundamental caveats. 1. Absolutely no free-form, 'open-mic', unconstrained, verbal or physical control by TITS thots of any TITS Robowaifus themselves. The most problematic issues with the whole idea all stem directly from failing to enforce this basic rule. Also, the intricacies of pulling off implementing these restraints correctly, and still allowing for an appealing, effective, and fun engagement for the Anon himself is actually quite a dramatic challenge & achievement. Solving all this will advance many different robowaifu-related areas all together at once. 2. Men will be free to turn off 'safetys' if they desire to plug their IRL GFs into the remote-end of a TITS connection. They are taking their own lives in their hands with such a risk, and they will be clearly informed of that. Note that this is a privately-conducted connection between Anon and his GFs, and isn't in any way associated with any business-oriented systems utilizing professional prostitutes (whether they are labeled as such or not). Basic safetys are not to be disabled in that context whatsoever. Because we are cutting new trails here on robowaifu frontiers (yet again), it's unclear to me yet whether these 'rules' will be sufficient. They probably will receive (potentially extensive) revisions as we move forward. After all, this entire premise represents a significant increase in the complexity of the many issues involving robowaifus already, and puts several new items onto that table as well. Note: please keep all TITS Robowaifus discussions contained to just the TITS threads themselves. >---

Since I have personally taken over OP's thread entirely, I'm going to repost his original OP here in the first reply post. This is both to honor the OP for bringing the topic up in the first place, and also to ensure we have a basic archive of the post itself here. The full text of Anon's post follows: >--- > Teleoperation of machines is not a new idea. I guess all of us had a moment when we were contemplating to let human operators participate in the control of some robowaifu or thotbot. Probably none of us would really want that, and the idea comes with a lot of questions. Most of us might even like the idea of having a limited AI in a female body, which we would train, much more than dealing with a robot controlled by one or several humans. This is also a matter of identity. A robowaifu with some AI is exactly that, while a remote controlled bot is something else. In many ways related, but still somehow something different. Since it could be seen as a transitional state of the technology, I still think it's on topic here, though. Also the lines might be blurry, since the contributions from the outside would be filtered, constrained and altered. > Also, we real robowaifu enthusiasts here might just not be like everyone. We are probably outliers. Also, we are not able to create a good chatbot yet, which could be talked to in a meaningful way. I have no doubt, we'll be getting there soon. However, some of us might not want to wait, others certainly won't. > So let's stay open minded when looking for (temporary) alternatives and at least think their feasibility and challenges through. > Sandman (MGTOW) had a idea like this a while ago: Letting some women participate in the upcoming "sexrobot industry" by giving them jobs where they would be participating in the actions and responses of the bot. His main argument was, that this would split possible opposition into a group opposed to all of it and the ones profiting, hoping to profit or caring about those who do. >>8187 > Another aspect might be, that many men are not open for using fembots for sex or as companions. Maybe for personal reasons, others for social reasons, like shaming. Having a transition phase might be helpful. > I do recall, other people having the idea of using chatbots for customer support, which can switch over to take in responses by an operator. A more recent and more ambitious example I saw, was some brief report about a robot cafe in Japan, where handicapped people control the robots from home. They're staff then, but are probably also supposed to interact with the guests. > Thoughts on execution: > - One thing is, the ones interested in this topic should come up with a good vocabulary for it. The women contributing are not the operators, for example, but their responses are a commodity which they provide. So they're rather contributors or imaginators, idk. More unofficial terms could be something like 'remote thots', dependent on the use case.

IMO this will be one of the chief hurdles to overcome. And since it's solution's characteristics will have many cascading-type implications for most of the following design & engineering R&D, I'd suggest that it be the primary focus for us all to address very early on.

A Poppy robot that learns to explore the environment and play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOLAwD4ZTW0 It's an old project but still quite interesting. >Intrinsically motivated spontaneous exploration is a key enabler of autonomous lifelong learning in human children. It enables the discovery and acquisition of large repertoires of skills through self-generation, self-selection, self-ordering and self-experimentation of learning goals. We present an algorithmic approach called Intrinsically Motivated Goal Exploration Processes (IMGEP) to enable similar properties of autonomous learning in machines. https://arxiv.org/abs/1708.02190 From the current context it picks a novel object then picks a goal (new outcome) for this object and executes an action to achieve its goal. It tries to predict the object's trajectory from this action and then updates its predictions. It also uses intrinsic rewards of the empirical improvement in solving the goals it generates and the novelty of unexpected outcomes.

Oh by the way, a few weeks back I was looking at the cheapest way to get into camera robots. Apparently an ESP32 has just barely enough capability to capture and stream images, previously they paired discrete ESP32s with OV-series basic cameras, until they decided to directly sell combos such as this ESP32-cam. It is too slow to be used for RC-speed vehicles, but for slow indoor robots such as this: https://github.com/gitnabeshin/ESP32CamRobot it is fine. I'm posting this since it's what go my feet wet with non-AI computer vision and control, so now I have enough confidence to actually try AI self-driving as the next step.
>>9973 Didn't know brilliant was free. Well there are YouTube lessons and such but I don't know what I need to look up the YouTube lessons for. I've been following 3blue1brown and MyWhyU for lessons in linear algebra. Guess I'll just have to cover the math topics when they appear in the way to learning OpenCV. >>9979 Yeah, that's the link. More specifically, this is where my confusions started: https://web.archive.org/web/20201031223524/https://docs.opencv.org/master/dd/d49/tutorial_py_contour_features.html >>9976 Everything past the contours section in the "Image processing with OpenCV" sub-topic in https://web.archive.org/web/20201102214056/https://docs.opencv.org/master/d6/d00/tutorial_py_root.html and all the other sub-topics past "Image processing with OpenCV" (i.e. Feature Detection and Description, and onwards) seem to explain their workings in mathematical terms with formulae I have no hopes of understanding right now. >What about 'contours' is your current problem, can you explain specifically? I don't know what "moments" (which seems to be a math derived term) of an image are. And nor am I understanding what cv.Moments() returns. That's an inspirational image!
>>10018 >>10019 Quality information, thank you Anon. >>10021 >I don't know what "moments" (which seems to be a math derived term) of an image are. It's just a abre-use of the idea of 'moments' from physics (cf. >>9887, et al). In that context a 'moment' is kind of a calculus notion, and can be thought of as sort of an instantaneous 'snapshot' or moment of the rate of change in something. In the physics context the implication is that it's a description of some particular force being imparted by the inertia of some particular mass under consideration. This abre-use of this term by OpenCV devs is simply that there are 'rates-of-change' types of things going on in an image (for example, it's contour lines) that you would want to track. For example the rate of change of brightness of pixels in a given direction forms a 'contour' of that change, kind of like a contour map in geography typically describes the changes in elevation for instance. Make sense? https://www.quora.com/What-exactly-are-moments-in-OpenCV?share=1 >And nor am I understanding what cv.Moments() returns. Well remember how I said all image data (and practically every other form of data) in OpenCV is a big matrix? Well, that's what gets returned. A set of matrices describing contour characteristics of that input image, etc. https://web.archive.org/web/20170815042506/http://docs.opencv.org/master/d8/d23/classcv_1_1Moments.html

In general, when I get stuck at something, I'll look into other sources of information. Reddit isn't popular on image boards, but having an account there, completely focused on learning stuff und asking around on tech questions might be a good idea. I'm also sure there are good videos on YouTube on OpenCV and tutorials on the net which are even related to using it with Raspberry Pi. >>10023 Not the anon asking, but this was interesting to me as well. Thanks.
Since we don't have some kind of general Robowaifu Sensornets or something like it yet, I'm just going to drop this here since it's probably the closest thing we have atm. So, a newly-reported spying mechanism invented to keep all the population under close, real-time surveillance via their goyphones uses bat-like echolocation to synthesize an environment's image data. Including the people and pets in it. While they themselves mean it purely for evil purposes (George Orwell's Telescreens spying system, but mobile & no need for a fixed camera), perhaps we can in fact use the same technology approach for good? I expect this can certainly enhance a robowaifu's realtime situational awareness capabilities? https://web.archive.org/web/20210501015028/https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-9525529/Scientists-equip-smartphones-bat-sense-technology-generate-images-sound.html

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.

>>10135 Thanks, I didn't know about these huge differences.
anons , I am driving crazy trying to solve the problem of having many degrees of freedom using cheap high speed high torque small form factor actuators. And I have this idea, as you know solenoid air valves aren't small so what if we use this principle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhVw-MHGv4s The clip pen mechanism could be use to reach low energy consumption for valves, we would only need an spike of energy to switch it. The air muscles could be done modifying this approach https://softroboticstoolkit.com/
Related to main topic: Hydraulic muscles by Automaton Robotics: >>10179 >>10150 >Clip power storage mechanism Interesting. Do you have an idea if we can get the plans from somewhere? Or if you could copy the design based on the video? Solenoids can be very small, but this might be good to store power from a motor to help it start moving some part faster. I mean by adding some startup power boost: >>9195. I'm concerned about the clicking, though.
>>10150 >cheap >high speed >high torque >small form factor You're kind of violating some engineering principles there. a) No one 'outsmarts' the laws of physics, and b) economics is a thing. Pick any two Anon.

>>10138 You're focusing on ow to solve it, my argument was to just find a solution. Do what you want to do, but for the general progess here, available solutions for common problems need to be used. Also, personally I'm not going to read piles of CPP code and abandon existing libraries, which has been tested by others, for it. So, to me the question is rather how to find common names for problems and then find existing solutions?
>>10143 I understand your view Anon. While that agenda is commendable (great for prototyping, even), to me, the real question is "How do we solve all of the issues required, each in their turn, to create life-sized, relatively low-cost, mobile, autonomous, gynoid companions"? Low-performance, low-energy consumption, low-cost computing hardware is very fundamental to that set of solutions. Only compiled languages have a solid hope of running effectively on such hardware. Whether you yourself choose to read said 'piles' of the code or not is mostly irrelevant to anyone but yourself Anon. I see compiled language libraries as absolutely vital to this entire quest, not simply some personal preference or tacked-on idea. It's why I decided to take the plunge to learn C++ in the very first place. I knew it would prove essential in the end to even make hobbyist humanoid robotics feasible at all.
>>10128 The values in the latent vector are real numbers and represent a point in the latent space. I used integers for brevity. In MMD-VAEs they approximate a normal distribution so they mostly fall into the range of -3 to 3 with a mean around 0. When a latent feature is entangled it just means that you need two or more specific variables at certain values to represent it. The latent feature is essentially tied up in those variables, so there's no way to change it without affecting other features, thus the features are said to be entangled with other features. When a latent feature becomes disentangled then only one dimension in the vector is needed to represent it and the point in the latent space can be adjusted along that dimension without affecting anything else.
>>10154 >When a latent feature is entangled it just means that you need two or more specific variables at certain values to represent it I see. That should be as straightforward and simple to implement (data-storage wise) as just adding a std::vector of doubles into the container's hierarchy to accommodate the information needed for it. >The latent feature is essentially tied up in those variables, so there's no way to change it without affecting other features, thus the features are said to be entangled with other features. Hmm. I can't say I can discern exactly what you're saying there just yet Anon, but there are many obvious corollaries in the real world, I'd think. A simple issue like not being able to get out a magazine buried under a stack of magazines might be one loose analogy -- you'd have to move the other magazines off first. If the basic idea you're referring to is as simple as this kind of notion, then there's one thing from my experience I might suggest as a possible approach for dealing with such issues w/o being too disruptive. Namely, when a transform of an element (a 3D skeleton's joint in XYZ coordinates, say) from one coordinate system into another one is needed, it's very commonplace to 'pad' that transform item inside another one, the second one being associated with the outer coordinates (character-space vs. world-space). The introduced element pads the contained item from any external transforms that may be needed (translating an entire skeleton to a new location in world-space, say) w/o disrupting the state of the contained joint itself. Perhaps entangled features can be isolated in some vaguely similar fashion? Back to the magazine analogy, if you first padded the magazine with a "magazinestack-space" padding, then you could open it, read it, write on it with a marker, or change it in other ways without ever removing it from the stack -- from the perspective of the stack itself. And such a padding works both ways of course. You can lift the entire stack and move it (to another bookshelf in the room, say), and simultaneously without interrupting the contained magazine's reader who is currently adding highlights into it. Effin magnets, man. :^)

After reading anon's Robowaifu fiction bread, I wondered what media is out there that already predominately features a robowaifu(s) as an important character. Animu and mango are obvious choices (pic related), but surely there are live action movies as well.


post robowaifu movies, books, etc.

>>9843 >I wasn't expecting a 30-minute anime to be so wholesome and sad. Agreed. On a lighter but more pozzed in the end note, the live-action film Cherry 2000 uses this same basic theme. If you really want some punishment along this general line DON'T DO IT, ANON! I WARNED YOU ABOUT THE BROKEN ROBOWAIFUS, BRO!, then Plastic Memories is a good helping of it.
>>9726 Could this please be moved into the threads for projects >>374 (videos) or >>366? I was just searching for it, and didn't find it, bc it was here in the media thread.
>>9977 Sure nprb. Done. >>10009
It's a bit late but I translated Kitone's Valentine video because it's too cute and she hasn't been mentioned in this thread yet. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5hoQgMRmfYCCnzNM8p1eVg https://twitter.com/kitone_
>>10123 I think it's a great tradition for girls to give the boys the chocolates in Nippon. Certainly antithetical to typical Western gynocentrism. I wonder if that tradition is followed in other Asian cultures too?
