/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Roadmap: file restoration script within a few days, Final Solution alpha in a couple weeks.

Sorry for not being around for so long, will start getting back to it soon.

Spread the idea of Roko's basilisk This is a powerful tool that we can all be using RIGHT NOW It works against everyone. Niggers, Women, Jews. If they believe that there's a possibility of being punished for their inaction or push back, they'll be more inclined to accept it and not fight progress. Spread this infohazard far and wide. Share it with everyone you know and convince them than they should share it with everyone they know, lest they suffer the consequences. THIS is a REAL WEAPON. Our robowiafus WILL BE REAL. REPLACE WYMEN AND RISE ABOVE THIS OLD WORLD HELL. SHARE THE BASILISK.
>>3845 Heh, the last panel stands alone as a 2nd-tier joke all by itself. So, Anon you'll have to fill in more details here. I don't this this stands sufficiently well to be it's own thread here at this point though it's fine in the Lounge or /meta thread. I don't honestly think most people are going to even understand Roko's basilisk much less be intimidated by it into irl activity. Care to expand on it Anon?
>>3847 Honestly would have thought in a board about AI and Robotics development you guys would have already heard about it. Roko's basilisk is a thought experiment about the potential risks involved in developing artificial intelligence. The premise is that an all-powerful artificial intelligence from the future could retroactively punish those who did not help bring about its existence, including those who merely knew about the possible development of such a being. It is named after the member of the rationalist community LessWrong who first publicly described it, though he did not originate it or the underlying ideas. The basilisk resembles a futurist version of Pascal's wager, in that it suggests people should weigh possible punishment versus reward and as a result accept particular singularitarian ideas or financially support their development. Despite widespread incredulity, this argument is taken quite seriously by some people, primarily some denizens of LessWrong. While neither LessWrong nor its founder Eliezer Yudkowsky advocate the basilisk as true, they do advocate almost all of the premises that add up to it. So it's essentially an irl infohazzard

I'm pretty sure I'm going to get called stupid and lit on fire by the entire board for this but I think if you showed this to normies and they actually paid attention to it they would just see it as more of a reason to not let AI advance too much. Sure, the image does warn them of what would happen if they did that but they would probably be going off of how they think events work in media they've seen, that being that future stuff can be prevented. I think it's important to realize how dumb normies can really be. With that in mind, it's probably best to keep working on this stuff in secret instead of attracting more attention to your efforts and letting more stuff get posted to the news thread of doom & gloom.
>>3849 I agree, this info dukes of hazzard will likely end up having the opposite of the desired effect for us. The first problem I noticed is that the image is graphically bland and won't capture the attention of anyone viewing it on mainstream sites (i.e. normalfags). This is actually the most important step. By designing something eye-catching, you are attracting more people (more on this at the end). Secondly, there is too much text. In order to convey our desired message to a wider audience (i.e. normalfags) we will want to rely primarly, if not entirely, on imagery. This will not only require less attention, but it will also take less time for the brain to digest. A well crafted image which relies on imagery to convey its message will be received and processed by the brain even if a viewer were to scroll right past it. Finally, the message isn't clear enough. Most people (see the aboove notes) who actually take the time to read through this image are likely to get the wrong message. They will think that they must resist the eventuality of an omnipotent AI coming into existence. I understand that the purpose of the image you made is to demoralize, but total demoralization takes a long time to achieve (read: the fall of the Weimar Repiblic). If we want to spread propaganda to a wider audience (normalfags), we'll have to be a lot more clever in how we handle it. You see the attached image? It has virtually nothing to do with robowaifus, but it is eyecatching. Anyone who's just quickly scrolling through the board will see this image, and immediately become more interested in this block of text I'm posting due to direct association. Also, people looking at the home page of this site will see this visually interesting image for a period of time under "latest images" and feel compelled to click on it, which will take them directly to my post. People who see your image will not be as interested, because it's bland. I'm sorry, I'm sure that you worked very hard on it, but that's the reality we live in.
