I write books about worlds of waifus. Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2021 (Thu) 12:04:02 No.12956 [Reply]
Depending on interpretation, these waifus are fully functional and fully interactive AI. The appeal of women both existing and being capable of love, while the failures of females are explicitly depicted constitutes a significant portion of the character motivation, promoting an exodus of men from the dying, legacy Clown World and the hilarity and insanity that follows after that while based and redpilled men live their new lives in relative happiness. So am I in the right place?

So it seems this will be staying as a separate thread, which means I will do more with it later. Finally finishing the second book is of course a higher priority. Here, have an excerpt: Though, speaking of storms… Masumi was moving quite quickly, Belas struggling to keep pace with her and still failing. When she saw me, she came running even faster, and at the first sound behind me, I barked, “Hold!” Hearing no further sounds, I declared, “Anyone who draws steel against them answers to us all, got it?” Though I didn’t look back, I heard the sounds of weapons being sheathed again. <Is there a problem?> inquired the Kitsune, sensing the tension in the air, while Belas made quite the racket closing the rest of the distance. He wasn’t out of breath a bit, despite looking as though his armor was almost as heavy as I was, perhaps even as heavy as he was. “There is,” I confirmed. “Walk and talk.”
>>13237 >So it seems this will be staying as a separate thread Yes. Please don't do anything weird with it, and try to acclimate yourself to our culture here.
>>13239 I don't think anything in here would be considered weird by the standards of the posters. I mean, who wouldn't want Kitsune waifus? Or more broadly, who wouldn't want the premise of the book? I've had some get triggered that the beginning is "a half hour of whining about life on Earth" but this is LitRPG - read: premeditated isekai. And so the character's motivations for abandoning everything are important, especially in character driven stories. The early pages make it very clear exactly what sort of dystopia is being escaped from. It's meant as a means of making my target audience self insert as the MC. So that when you see his mindset improve after reaching a better world despite it definitely not being perfect, perhaps the reader will dream of such a thing themselves. And then when the conflict starts? It is a conflict that everyone in my target audience can agree with. At least one person here I believe has read the book by now and can confirm.

Making money with AI and robowaifus Robowaifu Technician 11/30/2019 (Sat) 03:07:12 No.1642 [Reply]
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

>>13179 Simple answer: No standard type. No real mass production. Or if they are mass produced, or parts are, it's only about steps, not one size. So the question is only which size of steps: 5 cm? 10 cm? 15 cm?
>>13184 According to the Square-Cube ratio, every fixed increment of 1x size, with affect the system overall, on average, 1.5x , with added mass, difficulty in engineering, cost, etc. From a production complexity perspective, smaller is generally always better. This is one of the reasons why toy manufacturers have a much easier time of it than real-world manufacturers do, even when they have similar design paradigms between them.
>>13198 Your autistic fetish wasn't the topic here. Smaller isn't always better, let alone for fitting in more functions. There are other factors than mass. People will need to be able to select what they want.

>>13184 >Simple answer: No standard type. No real mass production. But why? I'm not talking about one specific detailed model that everyone would buy, I'm thinking more along the lines of a template that would be easy to customize the appearance of, but the size and proportions of something is literally the hardest part of that. Even if it were sold as separate parts like some build-a-waifu kit, there's an issue of compatibility once things have different proportions. I had a really long-winded explanation, but more simply speaking, if the skeleton of a robot were like pipes, changing the length of a pipe is one thing, but if you try to swap-out for a pipe of a different thicknesses then you end up complicating it a lot. When you have significant differences in height, you necessitate significant differences in thickness, otherwise you end up with things like weirdly big or small heads and hands, or parts that just don't align right. It's easier to make a wide variety of face parts that can be mixed and matched to make a custom face, if the head is a single standard size. The more custom parts need to be made, the more expensive everything gets.
>>13234 >sold as separate parts like some build-a-waifu kit That's actually very fundamental to the goals here on /robowaifu/ and always has been. Therefore I consider your point about standardized connectors & interfaces, etc., to be a very important one Anon.

Is she going to be tsundere? Deredere? Yandere or a combination? How would you code your waifus personality?

Where do you draw inspiration from and can personality even be classified and successfully coded into AI?

I scraped a ton of questions off the web intended for couples and friends to get to know each other because they were a fun way to explore shaping my robowaifu's personality. Perhaps someone else will find them fun or useful. I think some of the answers could be pooled and used for creating a robowaifu common sense dataset for responding to questions correctly. For example, "Would you open a joint bank account with me?" could be answered with something like, "Don't be ridiculous. Would you open a joint bank account with your car?" https://files.catbox.moe/6webl5.xz Also includes an open-ended political compass question set. Ask these and find your robowaifu's political leaning. Unsurprisingly GPT-2 is a fence-sitter but slightly right-leaning.
>>12299 Hey this is a really good idea IMO Anon. I bet there are mountains of this kind of thing, I'd say (as you suggest indirectly) that most of these are written by women, so you'd have to filter out question-begging shit intended solely to enforce woman-'logic' on the participant. But otherwise with a little care this could be a good idea. > For example, "Would you open a joint bank account with me?" could be answered with something like, "Don't be ridiculous. Would you open a joint bank account with your car?" < "As for myself, I'm just a piece of equipment, so it's not a problem Oniichan!"
>>18 Oh boy, I already mentioned it in two other threads, but I might as well mention it here too. Her AI would basically just adapt her behavior to maximize my happiness with how I interact with her, so coding a personality would be unnecessary >>13160 although after thinking about it for a while, she might end up being something of a cuckquean eager to help me pork other women >>13169
>>13172 >Her AI would basically just adapt her behavior to maximize my happiness That's still some kind of personality. Especially, if you had more than one then maybe you would want them to be different from each other. Some more funny or upbeat, maybe another one more sarcastic or quiet. Idk, in any way, thinking about personalities still makes sense.
>>13185 Yes, it'd still be a personality, but it'd be an "emergent behavior" instead of something you'd have to hard-code to act the exact way you want. Trying to figure out how to create a personality that works exactly the way you think it should in just about any situation the AI could be in just sounds like a logistics nightmare. Making it so the AI can rapidly adapt to approximate what you want seems like the best option. And you've got to understand that I'm talking about long-term overall happiness, not just trying to keep a constant grin on your face, because that'd inevitably fail as hard as telling the same joke on a broken record. Let's say you had a harem of different waifubots all based on fictional characters you're familiar with (or at least think you're familiar with) there's now the added factor that they're in the real world instead of their own fictional universe and interacting with you and others they might normally never meet. If you could somehow gauge and replicate the personalities of those fictional characters with perfect accuracy, their interactions might end up being an insufferable nightmare where the girls just constantly argue with you and each other. Or maybe it bores you with just how well they get along together and want to see them fight a little. Figuring out how to mimic the personalities of characters/people is a giant hurdle that might be impossible to do accurately. The closest I can think of is Replika.Ai which is a chatbot that's supposed to mimic the person it's chatting with, so if you're want an AI that behaves like you, or maybe a character you roleplay as, it could work, but it still has to learn the behavior. Even if you could just determine a personality by setting some different values for personality traits, you'd still probably need fine tuning just to get it right, or as close to right as you can stand. Now imagine the harem were instead all just programmed with that exact same basic happiness-maximizing behavior, but it's only their voices, appearances, names and some other bits of trivia (Aisha saying she is a Ctarl-Ctarl, not a human nor a robot) are all based on those fictional characters, they'd learn they have to behave differently from each other to do it. They'd eventually learn to behave the way you want them to behave because it'd make you happier to see them in-character instead of out-of-character compared to what you want/expect of them, not necessarily the way they would 'really' be. The biggest hurdle with this is if you just expect them to be perfectly in-character as soon as you boot them up, or the AI just learning the behavior too slowly to tolerate. I suppose the best compromise would be to try to create a default personality for each of them, so they have something to work with out of the starting gate, but then adjust their behavior.

Self-driving cars AI + hardware Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 07:13:28 No.112 [Reply]
Obviously the AI and hardware needed to run an autonomous gynoid robot is going to be much more complicated than that required to drive an autonomous car, but there are at least some similarities, and the cars are very nearly here now. There are also several similarities between the automobile design, production and sales industries and what I envision will be their counterparts in the 'Companion Robot' industries. Practically every single advance in self-driving cars will eventually have important ramifications for the development and production of Robowaifus.

ITT: post ideas and news about self-driving cars and the hardware and software that makes them possible. Also discuss the technical, regulatory, and social challenges ahead for them. Please keep in mind this is the /robowaifu/ board, and if you have any insights about how you think these topics may crossover and apply here would also be welcome.

Wow what a huge difference they've made at Tesla since this thread was first made back in the day on 8ch. Has anyone else seen the demonstrations of the vector-space renderings of the FSD neural nets on the Tesla. I was skeptical, but they really are beginning to emulate human ability for the perceive/respond cycle, and according to them at about 30Hz.

I'll admit that I don't really know shit about self-driving cars or AI, but I keep thinking about this, so I might as well dump it here. It occurred to me that the safest way to drive (not the most efficient or most convenient) would be to assume that everything around the car is completely stationary. In other words, if it were driving 80 mph on a highway, and there's a car visible in front of it, assume the car is going to instantly stop as if it hit a wall and comfortably decelerate to prevent hitting it long before that becomes a risk. The closer it is to something that it's driving towards, the slower it has to get, but driving away from something, it can accelerate as fast as the driver is comfortable with, until it starts approaching something else. If it were parking then getting just shy of touching a wall would be ideal, but while driving it's best to at least keep enough distance to drive around the car in front of it. Perpendicular movement is tricky, since cars can easily pass each other in opposite lanes inches from each other without accidents being common, but just the same if it were driving alongside a wall and something walked out from a doorway in that wall, it could be immediately in front of the car without warning, so the safest behavior is simply to drive slower, so driving perpendicular to something is no different than driving towards it, especially when on a winding road where you never know what's around the corner. Obstacle avoidance could be based on the whatever direction it can safely move in the fastest. I think you could even apply the same logic to flying and higher speeds at higher altitudes, although with regular cars you'd need to slow or steer as it approaches potholes or ditches on the side of the road. Or maybe I'm just a retard with Dunning–Kruger effect and driving safely is really a lot more complicated than that. Regardless, I'd love to see a simple simulation with a bunch of cars driving around following that simple logic, even with perfect omnidirectional vision not being realistic, I think the real-world hardware would amount to cameras on the bumpers and sides of the car, and the closer it gets to anything, the lowest value determines the max speed the car can go. There'd need to be a lot more added before it'd anything more than a glorified always-on parking assist. Though I this kind of driving behavior would only really be safe if every other car on the road drove the same way, since humans are reckless and impatient assholes, but flashing your blinkers a lower speeds could be enough to help occasionally.
>>13176 Lol, that would be worse than my Grandma's driving honestly. Such hyper-timidity would create countless automobile accidents and be directly responsible for a massive rise in roadway deaths. Society on the highways simply wouldn't function with widespread adoption of such behavior IMO. Tesla actually deals with exactly the kind of concerns you brought up Anon (and many others as well). Maybe you give their Tesla AI Day video a go?
>>13204 The movement speed perpendicular to objects probably needs tuning due to things like tunnels and guard rails, but otherwise I think it could work great. That hyper-timid driving style might seem excessive, but you've got to consider that the biggest concern people seem to have with autonomous cars is the safety. And if it's really an issue I guess it could still be made to still decelerate safely but not necessarily comfortablely, so the gap between cars can be smaller. There are some places and times where you can go straight on a highway for hours without ever seeing another car and there there's rush hour in New York where bumper to bumper traffic keeps anyone from moving. In the case of the former, the timidness isn't really a significant negative and would mostly just stop it from hitting a deer or anything else that wanders onto the road, hence my analogy of something popping out from a wall. But it would actually help alleviate traffic jams since the reaction time to the change in the speeds of the cars around it could be really high, and if a significant number of cars followed this method, then there'd be a large group of cars all slowly creeping while leaving enough room to pass and merge lanes instead of idling and random accelerating/decelerating and people trying to figure out how to merge. Traffic would be slow, but it would stay moving efficiently. I think this video really does a good job at showing the problem it'd solve: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHzzSao6ypE and at the chicken crossing the road part at 1:08, if you think of it as there being no road, just cars going in a straight line, the cars would slow as the chicken approaches to cross them, and start speeding up again as the chicken leaves, I think it could solve the problem without the cars needing to communicate with each other or eliminating human drivers entirely. The consistent driving behavior would keep the cars "in the middle" without needing to consider cars behind them.

I was thinking of using something like FastPitch, but with an added effect to make it sound more robotic to keep it from getting to an uncanny valley sound. Either that or making the voice kinda high pitched and childlike, to make it easier to accept when it says something stupid. Has anyone here considered hardware-based speech synthesis so it'll actually sync up with mouth movements? Everything professional I've seen just seem like horrid screaming fleshlights that never really try to resemble actual heads.
>>13164 >Has anyone here considered hardware-based speech synthesis so it'll actually sync up with mouth movements? Voice modulation, but not complete synthesis. But I don't know how yet. Your picrel is what I knew about, I posted some related video before. However, I was thinking about small internal speakers (mini maze speakers?) but with additional silicone parts that could move and change the voice that way. But nothing specific yet

Robowaifu-OS & Robowaifu-Brain(cluster) Robowaifu Technician 09/13/2019 (Fri) 11:29:59 No.201 [Reply] [Last]
I realize it's a bit grandiose (though probably no more than the whole idea of creating a irl robowaifu in the first place) but I want to begin thinking about how to create a working robowaifu 'brain', and how to create a special operating system to run on her so she will have the best chance of remaining an open, safe & secure platform.

OS Language Choice
C is by far the single largest source of security holes in software history, so it's out more or less automatically by default. I'm sure that causes many C developers to sneer at the very thought of a non-C-based operating system, but the unavoidable cost of fixing the large numbers of bugs and security holes that are inevitable for a large C project is simply more than can be borne by a small team. There is much else to do besides writing code here, and C hooks can be generated wherever deemed necessary as well.

C++ is the best candidate for me personally, since it's the language I know best (I also know C too). It's also basically as low level as C but with far better abstractions and much better type-checking. And just like C, you can inline Assembler code wherever needed in C++. Although poorly-written C++ can be as bad as C code in terms of safety due to the necessity of it being compatible with C, it also has many facilities to not go there for the sane coder who adheres to simple, tried-and-true guidelines. There is also a good C++ project already ongoing that could be used for a clustered unikernel OS approach for speed and safety. This approach could save drastic amounts of time for many reasons, not the least of which is tightly constrained debugging. Every 'process' is literally it's own single-threaded kernel, and mountains of old-style cruft (and thinking) typical with OS development simply vanishes.

FORTRAN is a very well-established language for the sciences, but a) there aren't a lot of FORTRAN coders, and b) it's probably not the greatest at being a general-purpose language anyway. I'm sure it could be made to run robotics hardware, but would probably be a challenge to turn into an OS.

There are plenty of dujour SJW & coffee languages out there, but quite apart from the rampant faggotry & SJWtardism plainly evident in most of their communities, none of them have the kind of industrial experience and pure backbone that C, C++, or FORTRAN have.

D and Ada are special cases and possibly bear due consideration in some year's time, but for now C++ is the obvious choice to me for a Robowaifu OS foundation, Python probably being the best scripting language for it.

Some folks might be interested in this. I ran across it looking for FORTH programming language for ESP32 microcontrollers. It's a ESP32 board but combined with a purpose built AI hardware chip.

It's fairly low cost. https://www.seeedstudio.com/Sipeed-Maixduino-Kit-for-RISC-V-AI-IoT-p-4047.html It might be that the AI chip would be powerful enough to keep the waifu from running into stuff.

Robowaifu Psychology Thread Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 09:27:27 No.2731 [Reply]
I hope to have useful links and images in the future, this is just a quickly thrown together glorified character sheet maker at this point. Ok so you can program, but HOW to make her thoughts work? At least on a creative level. I don't have much to contribute other than my rather obsessive what-ifs, I hope this is useful somehow. A few questions you might want to ask yourself before typing up some kind of bio or writing down conversations and quotes you imagine she would say are... 1. How close to the canon do I want to be? 2. How much canon is there? 3. How would I want to make her mine vs someone else's interpretation of the same character? Take note of those answers, if your memory sucks record them in a method you are comfortable with. I think typing might be faster for most. And you might want to revisit what you wrote here sometimes when making certain personality design choices. Use your answers here as a basic guide. For the most part, just go through writer's sites for character questionnaires. And before you omit a question, think of how could you use the basics of what it is asking to build your waifu's personality? For example, if a question rubs you off the wrong way politically, still use that question. But answer in your own way or even reword the question. Some of these types of questions are supposed to make you think hard about what shaped your character's dislikes, which is still important to what makes a person themselves. You may need to revisit some of these or even omit certain ones entirely. But try to figure out how to get that info in somehow later. This process can take a long time and be frustrating, but I think it has a place in the waifubot creation experience. Also, try think how would your waifu react if the story went differently at some point. This can get really dramatic real easy, but it doesn't have to. Just start with simple things like what would she say if asked to tell a joke? What does she find funny? What does she find cringey? Things like that, and don't be afraid to make what they call a 'brain dump'. Pretty much just type with minimal breaks and type everything that comes to your mind about the topic. You might get some useful info amongst the 'why am I doing this?' 'I need to take a shit' quotes. Also just use some of those story prompts. Also, try to use the more realistic day to day ones, like things that could happen in real life. Less exciting but pretty sure you aren't going on fantasy journeys with her IRL. Using these types of prompts will give her more to say on mundane everyday things, vs Skyrim politics. (But that could be fun sometimes)

>write, write, write OP, I'm way too lazy for that. There are some very common personality tests, like Myers-Briggs. Why not use them backwards: Look around for some fora where users explicitly state specific results like personalitycafe.com and typologycentral.com and check if you can get enough reference text for the various types such a test supposedly identifies. (My impression with MB is that the introvert-extrovert distinction is very important and reliable, the other stuff is eh.) If there is enough reference material, the diagnosis labels can become options in a character creator.

I once saw a few interesting interviews with Hubert Dreyfus, a Californian professor on psychology. He once became well known for warning that the approach to AI in the 60s would lead to nothing. The interviews are on Youtube. I reference some related material her, which I once downloaded and looked into. I had to use Catbox, since this site here doesn't allow textfiles... https://files.catbox.moe/7wxhy3.txt .. l also made some notes, but won't upload them today. The linked file contains magnet links to download, you could find them on your own on any torrent site. Use a VPN or so to hide your IP if that's important to you. It's just educational material and a bit older, so it shouldn't be a problem. It's about Existentialism, and might be important to create some human-like mind. Though it might also not be very urgent to know about that stuff, since it might only matter in some time. However, maybe someone has the time and wish to look into it: >Heidegger: A Starting - Survival Kit (Books, EN, ~300MB) >Martin Heidegger: Audio (in German), Speeches, Biography, ... (500 MB) >No Excuses: Existentialism and the Meaning of Life (Video lectures, EN, 4.5GB) >Hubert Dreyfus' Lectures on Heidegger's Being and Time (500 MB, Audio lectures, EN, partially bad quality) The "No Excuses" video lessons might be the best to start, or to only get an overview what this is about. This series is about different philosophers and authors, the rest is mainly about Heidegger's work, but not only. It also makes sense to look into the interviews with Hubert Dreyfus, for a start or a peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUZUbYCBtGI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHJQ3IjQfKI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CHgt2Szk-I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR1TJERFzp0 There's alot more... >>7868 >>7869 This thread >>18 is related, bc it's about personality. We have two different threads for that, lol, I mean one for personality and one for psychology. Now, who's explaining the difference? Let me try: Psychology is more general, the types of personalities (if they exist) are more of a distinction between different individuals. >>7865

>>7874 Anon I'm creating areas for generally problematic postings as a way to protect the health and welfare of the board in general. I'm calling this the subterranean club b/c they are located inside bumplocked threads. Allow me to repeat a quote I previously made, again here: >>7477 >...But if I feel a direct attack is being levied against the motivation and psychological state of our board's members then I'll will oppose that with vigor -- as well I should. The Sky is Falling will be for things we arbitrarily consider first and foremost about engendering blackpilling, discouragement, dejection, depression, demotivation, fear, panic, and other such harmful things. The Humanist philosophy of Existentialism fits squarely into this category IMO, and has little to do with a robowaifu's 'psychology' as well. Feel free to continue posting this type of thing here on /robowaifu/ as you see fit, but by the same token don't be surprised or offended if they get rearranged elsewhere. Your existentialism philosophy postings will be moved there along with many other types of posts by other users (including a few of my own rather misguided ones). Feel free to debate the pros and cons of such a decision afterwards either there or in the /meta. >=== -prose edit

I don't know shit about psychology and even less about coding, but here's what I want from an AI: 1: A basic chatbot. 2: Text to speech and voice recognition / natural language processing. 3: Some way for the AI to move the hardware I hook up to it, even if it has to learn how to do it. 4: Camera facial recognition to identify me despite a gradual change in my appearance from shit like beard growth and aging. 5: Voice stress and facial expression recognition so it can determine how I feel. That last part is everything that it needs for feedback. If it's totally obedient to my commands and can gauge my emotions, then it's primary goal is to learn how to adjust everything it does to maximize my perceived happiness and minimize my sadness, anger, fear, disgust, and such. No complex personality model is needed if the AI is smart enough. Once all that is established, the personality would simply mold itself to me over time, and hopefully understand that my preferences will probably also slowly change. With some Eulerian Video Magnification so it can spot the slightest change in my facial expressions and even monitor my heart rate by looking at me. Add body language to that and it shouldn't take long to realize what I want when I've got a boner. If you've never heard of Eulerian Video Magnification, it's pretty neat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONZcjs1Pjmk

AFFORDABLE, PRACTICAL WAIFUBOTS ARE POSSIBLE TODAY Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 01:55:08 No.103 [Reply]
I've seen plenty of ideas on this board over time that have completely convinced me that practical, affordable waifubots are possible with today's tech. With clever artistic decisions to make up for where the tech lacks, we can make perfectly cute, huggable, and fuggable waifus for what couldn't possibly be more than a couple hundred bucks. Hell, half the technology needed has been in childrens' toys for decades, and the rest is either in your phone, or is just sticking a bunch of onaholes in said toys. All you need to do then is make it cute, which costs practically nothing except for creativity.

I've made an infographic with ideas in this regard. Feel free to edit or add to it. I've never bothered to try to make infographics before, but I've heard the good news of robowaifus, and I want to help spread the word.

Additionally, use this thread to give any other ideas you have to help make actual practical waifubots. There is no need for this to be an endeavor that costs tens of thousands of dollars. And the cheap results shouldn't need to simply be tiny things you can't even fuck.

And remember, the key is that you don't need to have a perfect waifubot right away. You only need one good enough to market, both to make money, and to spread awareness of just how possible they are. This will then fund further tech and result in the waifus of your dreams.

>>862 >shitpost thread >implying loli Optimus Prime isn't a great idea I'm pretty sure it's canon. I've never read Kiss Players, but I've been told that's pretty much what it is. And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. To link it to the OP, there are plenty of affordable, moving Optimus Prime toys out there (though Transformers are way too expensive these days, if you ask me). Give it the loli features from your pic and a fleshlight, and you're set. Make it a "salt" powered robot, like mentioned above, and have her beg you to fill her with your "Energon."
>>2543 >And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. This. Any chance you could think about a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? It would be both a big help and an encouragement to everyone here if you could do so Anon. Each of us have our part to play. For example, AI Anon is researching papers all day. I work on software most days. We have a lot to do here and splitting up the load will only help everyone tbh.
>>2545 >a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? I wish I could, but I don't have nearly enough capital for this. And I don't think it's literally as simple as buying a toy off the shelf, because the more advanced robot toys are too small. Going for a small size makes way more sense, both in terms of money and in terms of the actual energy it takes to power the robot, but there is a point where it literally becomes too small to fuck, which defeats the point. What we really need is a company with the capital to produce toys like robosapien (or a modern version of it) make one that is twice as big, and has a body that can actually fit a fleshlight inside it. The rest is just the case. Again, modifying the outside of a toy to our purposes is difficult. But if we were the type of people who had a company that could make toys, like Takara or Hasbro or whatever (not that Hasbro would ever do this), it would be a trivial matter to make a toy that was just cute from the start, and also had a space for a fleshlight in the torso.

Why consider alternative CPU architectures for secure systems? Robowaifu Technician 07/25/2020 (Sat) 13:55:25 No.4506 [Reply] [Last]
Hello Anons, wanted to share some info and perhaps make you think about what you should compute with. x86/amd64 -Proprietary ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) This means to get enough low-level detail requires signing non disclosure agreements (NDA). Even then, they might not disclose all the available commands (see Breaking x86 video below). If you cannot trust what the processor is doing, then no open-source software will make it any more trustworthy. -Complexity Common instruction sets come with hundreds (over a 1000 for x86) instructions. Breaking x86 instruction set https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=KrksBdWcZgQ Hardware backdoor x86 (not for all processor models) https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=_eSAF_qT_FY The more complex the system, the more bugs (in hardware and software). Intel had plenty of bugs that were discovered post release, for example the Pentium floating point division: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_FDIV_bug). Interestingly, the x86 assembly instructions are actually decoded to a sequence of RISC instructions to be used by the internal cores of the CPU.

>>11127 If it's like a human then it's AGI. Doesn't matter how it's designed inside. It should be made of different parts, including regular programs. Which also debunks the problem of some rampant super AGI, especially out of the blue.

Even though the primary topic for this post is about a secure OS implementation, I'm going to drop it ITT since it also relates to RISC-V hardware. https://microkerneldude.wordpress.com/2021/05/05/sel4-on-risc-v-verified-to-binary-code/ https://sel4.systems/
A mad lad made a 1000 transistor silicon chip in his garage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS5ycm7VfXg >My chip is a simple 10×10 array of transistors to test, characterize, and tweak the process but this is a huge step closer to more advanced DIY computer chips. The Intel 4004 has 2,200 transistors and I’ve now made 1,200 on the same piece of silicon. http://sam.zeloof.xyz/second-ic/
>>12421 This is really cool, thank you very much Anon! :^) >related http://sam.zeloof.xyz/maskless-photolithography/ http://sam.zeloof.xyz/developing-patterning-process-for-homemade-microelectronics/ http://sam.zeloof.xyz/category/semiconductor/ He clearly knows what he's doing, but he's using quite primitive techniques relatively-speaking. Obviously that's a prerequisite under these circumstances, but it's getting the job done after all. Seems like he's having some process contamination issues going (unsurprisingly tbh). But the size of the fab final assembly should mean he can fit it all into a homemade clean containment glovebox, so there's that. My instinct is that you should be able to get this to a MC68000-tier machine process w/o any significant changes to the photolithography mechanism designs, apart from the steppers.
I haven't really thought much about security other than simply not giving it any sort of internet connectivity. I had thought about giving it some wireless connectivity, but only because of the limitations of fitting a PC inside of a space roughly the size and shape of a human skull and torso. I was thinking of a completely offline server with wireless transceiver and another transceiver inside the skull, with a signal only strong enough to maintain a signal within my own property.
