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

>>5670 Lovedolls ("Sexdolls") are closely related, so it's not a far strech. The skills for designing and building one, or enhancing it, overlap in part with the other. There's a inventors thread in the Dollforum where they're partially ahead of us, with putting electronics inside, making whole bodies, maybe even putting some motors inside. They just go on calling them dolls, though in my opinion when they move or "think" they aren't dolls anymore.
>>5672 Then why even call them "dolls"? Dolls intrinsically have minimal control of their own movements (as in they don't), nor require any software for them to function. By this standard, dolls are just less capable and thus inferior to sexbots. What do they gain from such a reductive connotation? Also, I'm in /robowaifu/, not dollforum
>>5654 Before the lockdowns I was thinking about making battery powered arduino-controlled model trains. HO-scale with some self-assembly and painting required (like Japanese plastic model trains)... maybe use vacuum-forming for the bodies. Model railroading has been in decline because the trains and equipment have become so expensive only rich retirees with big houses can afford them. By using Arduino for the control mechanisms and making the trains somewhat robotic (have collision detection and onboard cameras), I can bypass the overpriced DCC equipment. Of course this business plan is contingent on model railroading -- and rail in general -- having a revival.
>>5763 RC racing is coming back too, most unconventional sports are bring brought back with covid. It woukd be a good idea to bring RC racing or some type of battle bots so more people get intrested in machines and subsequently robowaifus. Business wise you just need land for a track and materials for battle bots. You could have a derby like event so you could have pits of racing and smashing cars.
>>5684 That was exactly my point in >5672, but since they're starting with dolls and then animate them, it's the question when to start calling them lovebots or robowaifus. A lot of people also seem to have the need for having two distinct names for hard-shelled robots and soft-shelled (doll-like) ones.

In this thread we discuss various CAD software for the purpose of making access easier for others to get started. I'm using Fusion360. Other good options are Blender and FreeCAD. Fusion360 is the easiest to use imho and is free unless your business makes over 100,000 dollars.

>>8469 I have the tab open for quite a while, but didn't try it out. Seems to be interesting, I might look into it this year at some time. It's probably going to be about finding out what workflow works better, programming or working with the mouse. The problem is that these programs have no good exchangeable file formats. What might be interesting about OpenSCAD is that it might be possible to train programs to create object, while comparing it to a real object with image recognition, or to use it in a physics simulation. Maybe we can use this at some point to have our waifus imagine objects and run simulations to figure out how to handle them, a bit like dreaming or like planning and understanding how things work through imagination.
The designer of Alitas bodies in the live action movie : > https://vitalybulgarov.com/alita >Software-wise I used: ZBrush for initial sculpting(shape exploration), then Softimage XSI(for SUBD parts) and Moi3D(for CAD parts) for final surfaces/detailed work. Bodies rendered in Keyshot and the heart was rendered in Octane (I transitioned to Octane Render at the end of the project). Doesn't help me much, tbh. Except the term SUBD helped me to find this: https://solidedge.siemens.com/en/solutions/products/3d-design/subdivision-modeling/ Subdivision Surface Modifier — Blender Manual: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/modeling/modifiers/generate/subdivision_surface.html This might be the knowledge I lacked to get ahead. It's for the creation of more complex organic forms, but not (horrendous) 3D sculpting.
>>9355 I might be able to help you sort through some of that Anon. But honestly, you are already on the proper course by focusing on Blender instead unless you are independently wealthy. Today, Blender is not only still a free product (both as in beer and speech), but it also kicks ass too. Several studios have begun migrating to it, and Ton is now raking in over a million a year to grow the Blender Foundation's efforts with the platform. It shouldn't be the only tool in your pouch, but Blender should generally be the first thing you reach for Anon.

CNC Machine Thread Robowaifu Technician 05/12/2020 (Tue) 02:13:40 No.2991 [Reply]
Many of the parts needed to build our robowaifus will need to be custom made and they will need to be metal. For parts that have a high tolerance for imperfections a 3d printer can print a mold and then a small scale foundry can be used to cast the piece with metal (probably copper or aluminum). BUT there will be pieces that need a higher degree of precision (such as joints). For these pieces a CNC machine would be useful. CNC machines can widely range in size, price, and accuracy and I would like to find models suitable for our purposes. I know there are CNC machines available that can cut up to copper for under $300, but I don't know if that will be enough for our purposes. (https://www.sainsmart.com/products/sainsmart-genmitsu-cnc-router-pro-diy-kit?variant=15941458296905&currency=USD&utm_campaign=gs-2018-08-06&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign) Some CNC machines can be used to engrave printed circuit boards and that may prove useful for our purposes as well. Are there any anons that know more about CNC machines? Anons looking to buy one ask your questions here.

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/

This notebook is purely for learning. I don't recommend using aitextgen for serious projects since it's lacking some features and has some bugs in it. It's just an easy way to get started playing around with GPT-2 and learning how it works. Unfortunately it also uses an enormous amount of memory and I'm not sure why. I tried to minimize this as best I can but it still requires about 6 GB of free memory. I'm also working on another notebook on how to train GPT-2 with just the transformers library for building a more serious project and will go into detail on how to create your own memory-efficient Dataset class for large datasets, how to create your own training loop and fine-tune a model with knowledge distillation. After that I'll do one on training GPT-2 with human feedback >>9347 and move onto tutorials with T5 since it's more powerful and easier to train.

What's the future of /robowaifu/ like? Robowaifu Technician 05/06/2020 (Wed) 22:40:22 No.2699 [Reply]
I am the anon who was asking about a very basic beginner set up that could be easily upgraded using the ms paint Chii love doll as the base. I am wondering what is your vision for the future of /robowaifu/? I am curious since I am getting a lot of good info just lurking around here, but it seems like everyone has different visions. Nothing wrong with that, but I am more curious about resources and kits for beginners. Even it's just a list of parts to buy and find on your own at different tiers.

>>4626 Thanks BO, I'll refer to my previous post once I also post on the propaganda thread. >I wouldn't worry too much about it. A) we're definitely not an MGTOW board, and B) this is a huge, niche, topic that will literally take a number of years to explore reasonably well. Anyone who's going to stick it out here is already probably highly-motivated internally anyway. As strange as it might seem, even MGTOW once was as small as /robowaifu/ and people did expect years to come by and then gain some small traction and yet it still grew. This happened because ,even while being a niche topic, the impact of its results, if said choice was taken into consideration by most, would be widespread. As a matter of fact, as it grew, it just grew faster and faster (as the networking effect encourages). I personally think that /robowaifu/ will be the same: very niche contents, very big potential impact nonetheless, hence why more memes will help. Once again, thanks for the hospital and welcoming behavior.

An idea I had was to have an outer and inner circle. There are frequent robowaifu theme posts on /pol/ which get about 90% positive interaction and 10% negative, but very few actually are aware of the real projects and research taking place here. Last year I created an "enthusiast" level discord server and created a few channels for brainstorming and research (not knowing about /robowaifu/ at the time) - it is interesting to see how many ideas are here that were the same and how many new ideas as well. So what if we were to create an enthusiast tier board for propaganda and memes, fiction, discussion, but anyone wanting to go further into the technical realm would be from a smaller pool. So we have a larger pool which is more "normie" friendly and fun, but those who want more, or who are ready, can be vetted and introduced into the inner circle, so to speak. What do you think?
>>9443 I've always said very plainly I welcome any and all additional venues for robowaifuism Anon. This can only help our cause. Some guy once said >"All press is good press" While I won't actively support evil things like Doxxcord directly here on /robowaifu/ , I don't have any issue if you promote your channels on our /meta thread. I certainly don't have any issues with you creating them on your own initiative. I would love to see large numbers of alternative robowaifu-oriented venues appear literally everywhere. Let's bring on the social shitstorm debate surrounding them, I say. >tl;dr Proceed, Anon.

Biological synthetic brains for robowaifus? Robowaifu Technician 04/06/2020 (Mon) 20:16:19 No.2184 [Reply] [Last]
Scientists made a neural network from rat neurons that could fly a fighter jet in a simulator and control a small robot. I think that lab grown biological components would be a great way to go for some robowaifu systems. It could also make it feel more real. https://www.google.com/amp/s/singularityhub.com/2010/10/06/videos-of-robot-controlled-by-rat-brain-amazing-technology-still-moving-forward/amp/

>>7498 Haha, fair enough. There's surely some merit and even possible benefits from exploring the concepts around integrating partial biologicals into our robowaifus. But, obviously, it will come at a heavy cost development-wise. Better appear to be well worth it before any serious effort is started.
>>7499 The development costs would be high if we would now try to get into it, on top of all the other things. On the other hand, in case someone would show up here, who would already happen to be involved in biology, then it will be good that we already have some ideas laid out.
>>7500 That's true. But honestly, I can't think of anything we're dabbling into that I personally feel less qualified to discuss in earnest, and even barely to speculate on. My investigations into the biochemical foundations of life via molecular-biology studies and research frankly leave me flabbergasted. -In software engineering, I feel vaguely like some kind of an engineer, at least part of the time. -In character animation, I feel remotely qualified to judge acting-quality, having been a human being all my life. -In electrical engineering, I've actually put together a thing or two under the close guidance of a good mentor. -In mechanical engineering, I feel like only a bumbling dabbler, strictly an amateur. Mostly breaking things but sometimes succeeding. But when it comes to life sciences (in particular at the molecular level) I don't think I understand much at all. Nor do most others I suspect -- certainly not the pop-science crowd. Never have so many LARPed so hard with so much ultimate comedy in the end.

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

Honda develops a wheeled robot which can also walk. Not a new idea, but the one which makes the most sense. Also 3D printed. Maybe also interesting for some outdoor waifus: https://youtu.be/C2lQDeegVjo

First we prepare some crispy and light Pi crusts and get them just right, then we'll load them up with tons and tonnes of succulent and Juci Sepplesberrys. We'll also mix in lots of other tasty goodness then pop them into the oven and after a couple hours, voilà! delightful Sepplesberry Pies. >tl;dr ITT we mek C++ dev boxes from RaspberryPi computers >C++ development main thread >>4895 Embedded processors and integrated systems programming naturally go hand-in-hand for /robowaifu/. The RaspberryPi and C++ are natural baseline choices for each of these categories. At this point in time they are both popular concerns with large communities behind them, and each bring objective benefits for us as robowaifu technicians. For the Pis they are quite powerful relatively speaking, and inexpensive as well. For C++ it has great performance and other characteristics when used correctly, with generic abstraction mechanisms second to none. In an attempt to dovetail the two areas we're going to be going through setting up Raspberry Pis as little computers for learning the C++ programming language on. This should help every anon on /robowaifu/ that follows along to be on the same basic page for both embedded and programming. Once we're finished each of you will have your own little development exploration box you can literally carry around in your pocket. It will be self-contained, independent, and won't interfere with your other computing/vidya platforms. It will offer you a convenient way to begin controlling embedded hardware directly on the same machine that you write software for it on. This is a pretty compelling scenario IMO, and should serve us all as a good base from which we can branch out and grow from there. Working with other hardware and software will flow naturally from this project, and will give each of us a common experience from which we can build together and keep moving forward. So let's get started /robowaifu/.

>>9376 So, by doing this renaming you're basically telling BUMP to reconstruct the entire archive from scratch. This is because the program explicitly checks this .archbot.config file (named in honor of the very earliest version of the tool Archive Bot >>610) to find this archive's configuration setup. If it can't find that exact filename, it presumes this is a new archive that anon is setting up. Note: However, since this is not a new setup, it simply redownloads & rechecks all the JSON files from the board (potentially downloading any new files that haven't been yet) during this 'new setup' process, overwriting the previous JSONs (& simply reusing the already-created, custom-named thread directories within the archive's directory tree). Rather than going to all the trouble of doing this, if you want to re-download all the JSONs you can instead simply pass an 'undocumented' flag 1 at the end of the statement to do this: build/bump anon.cafe comfy 1 This force_recheck flag tells BUMP to redownload & recheck all the board's thread's JSON files. Note: The catalog.json is the single file that will always be downloaded with every invocation of BUMP, since it contains all the information needed that tells the program which (if any) threads have been, well, BUMPed. :^) As far as your other comment about checking the status of a file before attempting to download, yes. Both HTTP/2 & cURL both support this type of tag in the header (however a website may or may not provide it). I simply hadn't gotten around to addressing it since the algorithm already did all the required 'update-needed' checks by simply using the board's catalog JSON file itself. CBA to change it ATP, but it's something I'm likely the adopt in the new Bumpmaster program instead. >tl;dr Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon.
>>9382 >Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon. Okay, I'll try that. It's not urgent, if there are others using the program to make a backup of the board. I can wait. Another thing: Which files would I need to copy into Waifusearch, to use the updated jsons for search. I know you're planning to join these anyways, just wondering if I can do it manually or with a small script on my own. Again, I'm not trying to urge anything here. Not that important.

>>3844 ROFL! Although, this is why I sometimes think it would be best if bots just communicate in math...or maybe ultra-rapid Morse code? That might be cool.
>>9288 Did you consider using AIML while the rest of the system starts? I think that's how it will be done eventually. There could be a list of comments to give while waking up, choosen randomly every time. Later maybe adding some new responses automatically, so she could pick up while booting and ask how you were doing what you planned to do while she was sleeping. That aside, why booting down at all? Or alternativly, why using only one computer? Because it's still development, okay. I think we're going to have systems which use some computers simultaneously. If one fails or needs to be rebooted the system would still be live and have the same knowledge. So there different ways to mitigate that, and it might only be a problem while working on a part of a system on one computer, not really an issue for a full build.
>>9377 I haven't used AIML before but that might be a good idea for dealing with loading times in a finished build. The main issue is just development really. Often I wanna test something in a model for 5 minutes and shut it down but waiting 2 minutes for it to start up wastes a lot of time. Even once PyTorch is loaded into the disk cache it still takes 15 seconds to load. One way I try get around this is by using Python's interactive console and Jupyter notebooks so PyTorch remains loaded, but sometimes the code I'm testing can't be imported easily without refactoring. It also takes some time loading large models but that could be fixed by using an SSD or possibly SD Express 8.0 cards in the future with 4 GB/s read speed.
>>9377 >I think we're going to have systems which use some computers simultaneously. If one fails or needs to be rebooted the system would still be live and have the same knowledge. You are absolutely right, and the future is here 4 decades ago Anon. 'Fly-by-wire' in aviation commonly has multiple, redundant, control computers running simultaneously. Usually in groups of 3 on modern aircraft (Although the Space Shuttle sported 4 different CnC systems). All the computers receive all the same inputs, all of them calculate these and (presumably) output all the same outputs. Or it is to be hoped so, at least. And that's the basic point; by having these redundant flight computers all running, they validate the common consensus by cross-checks and elections. If one of the three malfunctions, the other two kick it out until it 'comes to it's senses'. This leaves the actually not too unlikely scenario question "What happens if the two don't agree while the third is out of commission?" Thus the Shuttle's four machines on board. Additionally, it's not uncommon for highly-critical systems to require different contractors and different software running on at least one of the systems. That way if an unknown bug of some sort suddenly crops up, it's more likely the oddball system won't exhibit it. Safety-critical controls systems are both a complicated and fascinating field, and one ultimately of high importance to /robowaifu/. >>98 >>9390 >or possibly SD Express 8.0 cards in the future with 4 GB/s read speed. Neat, I didn't know about that yet.
