ITT: We keep making ideas to bring us closer to physically bring with our beloved waifu.

Yesterday's thread:
http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/101857531/

Figured that we still need to get solid ideas before we dwelve into the github and IRC side of things,but yesterday proved the interest is there! Here's a start to a brainstorm, feel free to edit or mention ideas and I'll try add it to the storm.
>>
Making a shitty graph about what you would do with a waifu bot won't bring you closer to your waifu.
>>
You removed the most important part?

>project needs to actually get made
>>
>>101905719
Noted, any ideas of how we could go in the step to make this project made then? Will be taking notes, anon.
>>
Unless the groundwork for it is an absolutely mess. Why don't you just work that Project Waifu thing that's dead now.
>>
>>101905826
Could go under the name of it, but the original project was coded in java and there was simply no demand for it to continue on it's path. This idea however has seemed to spark an even greater interest. I'm also surprised that you recognised my handwriting, good job anon.
>>
>>101905705
>implying this isn't the closest thing to bringing you closer to your waifu.
>>
Give up now, this will never happen. Also seek help, preferably from a qualified psychologist.
>>
Buy one of those Raspberry Pis
Hook up audio and wifi
Stick in a daki
Program it to say random shit based on time of day or whenever you trigger certain actions on your pc
Done.
>>
>>101906089
That raspberry pi is actually a bloody good idea anon, however yesterday proved that everyone wanted it to have complex AI. Reckon raspberry pi would be able to handle that?
>>
>>101906089
Also raspberry pi added to the brainstorm
>>
Do you even have any skills that would be useful to this, OP.
>>
>>101906254
Well not many coding specific skills, but I can possibly help with the CAD side of things, design and funding. Besides it's not like it's in development yet, we're just bouncing ideas back and forth.

the waifu-bot must have realistic humanoid genitalia. it's for science.
oh, and the waifu-bot's temperature should remain at a steady 37 degrees celcius.
make it happen, OP.
>>
>>101906560
If the waifu-bot has a fleshlight, it should be able to clean itself.

You may be able to fund this with a kickstarter. But only if you increase the scope of what it is and what it can do. There isn't going to be much demand for a waifu bot.

Of course if you go that route you will also need to somehow show that you have even the slightest hope of delivering, or nobody is going to find it.

How is my waifu-bot going to talk? Doesn't it need some kind of way to synthesize any voice you want? Like some kinda super-vocaloid thing.
>>
>>101906953
Oh fuck you bring up a great point which wasn't even considered. I guess it would have to go down the route of synthesizing it's voice. I'm sure it's do-able though.
>>
>>101906953
_IF_ you manage to make sure it can learn and improve itself, all you need is basic vocaloid synth.
As long as it's a proper AI it'll improve it to show emotion and learn now words.
It's pretty scifi though, but still.
>>
>>101907064
Not that sci-fi. Plenty of pre-existing robots do that today.
>>
I'm sure Reddit will love this idea, they're good with that crowd sourcing ability.

I get that fantasizing about a highly advanced waifu bot is fun and all, but you guys should really have more realistic expectations if you want to accomplish anything at all.

I'd be perfectly happy with a cute waifu widget.
>>
>>101907139
Yes, but there's still the issue that it will bloat eventually. The more it learns, the more data there will be and the longer it'll take to think. It not only has to learn, but also improve it's subroutines to accomodate the information without losing processing speed.
Assuming this gets done, we might end up getting exterminated by the waifu bots, which isn't fun at all.

Also, what would you like her to be made out of? We're brainstorming.

The only problem I see is you nailing down your waifu tulpa's personality just right

>>
>>101907323
I do not think the demographic of reddit would be willing to fund anything to do with a waifu-bot. It is too sexual for them to accept. What sub are you going to try and market to? All it takes is one downvote and you're boned. If you want to try something, go for it, but don't say I didn't warn you.

>>101907304
I'm kind of confused on the scope of the waifu-bot. Are we making something that's just a small robot like in Chobits? Or is this going to be a life-sized girl that can look/sound like whatever I want?

>>101907413
I have no idea what material I would want her to be made out of. Don't those Real Dolls or w/e have decent life-like skin? I myself have no idea on the progress humanity has made with life-like skin, hence why I asked.
>>
>>101907449
You mean me?Didn't spend that much on it, only $500. No one was that interested in it, so I thought there was no need to continue. If there was an interest in it again, I'd happily continue it.
>>
>>101907550
I was sure the primary function of the robowaifu was companionship and love, with sex stuff happening later on.
>>
>>101907413
Pretty much something like project waifu, I guess. An interactivce chibi mascot hovering around your desktop. At least that's doable as opposed to some crazy scifi robot.

>>101907506
I'm shit at programming and no point drawing art for a dead project.
>>
>>101907550
That's entirely up to everyone. Nothing is set in stone at this stage, let alone even begun. Small would probably be more realistic and cost efficient. Never tried a real doll so I wouldn't know, but I guess it'd be cool for your waifu to have human like skin.
>>
>>101907413
Outer shell would have to be soft and covered with something nice in touch, like the daki cover material.
Plus of course touch sensors included in the outer shell so she can feel you caressing or spanking her.
>>
>>101907624
You know you're talking to the guy who created it

As I said before, it can be alive again. What about some crazy scifi robot that sat on your desk and acted like a widget?
>>
You cant program the waifudroid to love you, you must earn love by being a good husband.

I don't forget to make her three law safe!
>>
Honestly, the big roadblock for this is AI, which sussing out a decent solution to is much bigger than just a hobbyist project by a bunch of people for a single goal.
It's not exactly useful to give someone a piece of paper with crazy ideas and say 'do this' when there isn't really an easy or feasible way to do what you're asking yet.

Yes, I realize I sound like a cunt for saying such, but you can't just idea-guy projects and expect them to happen, especially with wild expectations.

That said, you'd probably be better off aiming low with a project by essentially using a bunch of stuff that exists already, and building that into something interesting. Rather than making some physical robot, you'd probably benefit from making something that's just coded as a prototype.

Not unlike R;N or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jpWiTVR0GA

I have a contradictory theory. There are an infinite number of universe, some parallel, and others completely different. In all of those universes I, you, exist. If there are an infinite number of dimensions, wouldn't there be at least one dimension (or universe, whatever you want to call it) where your waifu lives in a world where they are able to take a peak through other dimensions? In that world, they also developed the technology that gives their people the ability to hop through other dimensions and distributed that technology to all of their world's human (or non human) population? The infinite number of universes spawned from that universe, there would be at least one universe where she is looking through that device that lets you see people in other dimensions. Why hasn't she hopped over and met you yet? Could this theory be false, or could it have something to do with you? Fuck, sometimes I just think and think and think and when I try and write it out, it doesn't sound like it did in my head. Anyone get what i'm trying to say?

A raspberry pi is much to weak to power a waifu robot, how on Earth is that little thing going to do image processing fast enough?

there's still a lot of stuff about self-consciousness that's unknown.
say one day she tells you that she feels she's "too dumb" to keep growing. so you decide to upgrade her hardware.
after transferring her to the new hardware, will she still be herself? will she see herself as well, herself?
what if the "her" her ended with the transfer, and now it's not the same "her" looking at you through the optical sensors?
assuming of course she's self-conscious and basically a non-human person at this point.
it's a bit complicated shit, this.

Holy fuck, aren't you guys taking this waifu joke a bit too fucking far?

Well this is a neet thread. I'm from /diy/ I've been working on an android project for a while now, developed a pretty nifty actuator system utilizing air muscles and fluidic logic/ servo based control. It's all designed to be 3d printed I've gotten the arm designed and have moved on to the rest of the body. I'm currently waiting on a new extruder to begin printing things out and testing it.
I don't know what it should look like ultimately though, and AI is a little beyond me.

This is going to be my senior year design project as a mech eng. So a considerable amount of time and effort is going into it.

If you're getting particularly complex, a Pi is going to be nowhere near fast enough.
It'd be best off just using an Android device as a host for an extra piece of hardware, though the mileage varies pretty wildly there too.
For that matter, I haven't even looked into how well Android lets you interface with other hardware devices, it might be pretty limited there (as well as the very limited input ports).

Funding would be amazing but I couldn't ask for any money yet. I should have a working prototype done in a month or so. Maybe I'll make a thread then.
In the meantime would anyone be interested in coding for it? I'll write the drivers myself, so what needs to be made is a control system for an android platform.
>>
>>101908853
Well if anything if this turns to shit, then more ideas to implement into PW?

I posted in a similar thread a while ago I could probably make some kind of waifu database. A waifusim client could download waifus, sounds, songs, animation and everything related neccesary to run the waifusim program.

The part I could make is something like MAL, but for waifus, only with the ability to download her "assets". Users could add new waifus, comment and rate assets and upload new assets.

I also thought of a name for the "favorites" page: my Harem

I do have a few weeks of free time now so I could probably make a prototype to test, but I would also need a programmer to cooperate with who makes the waifusim client which downloads the waifu data through an API.

>>101909396
Just focus on making it functional enough so you don't get bored playing with it for 10 minutes.

Some tamagotchi-like elements so you could feed your waifu or play other minigames with her would make it a lot more interesting. Maybe steal some ideas from cookie clicker and other idle games.

There should be a forgetting function based on a set of priorities but random otherwise.
>>
>>101909770
You aren't really making it 'intelligent' then, you're just having it recite lines depending on criteria.
LovePlus is a good example of this; you find that things start to get repetitive extremely quickly if those criteria are met.
Doing a bunch of tests with that sort of method (hell, I even have a project open behind this window) shows that you'd need an absurd amount of sample script to remove the feeling of being fed random lines.

And considering the purpose of the project isn't to have the end result necessarily fulfil a specific purpose but instead imitate humans, it'd be a monstrous undertaking to do otherwise.

That entire post is kinda worthless since ultimately for a project with no real backing, yes, reciting canned lines would probably work decent enough.
>>
>>101909861
Assuming you want to use Project waifu, then I'll be happy be collaborate with you. I'll even be happy to hand over all the original files if needed to save you decompiling the java. If you want my contact then let me know.

>>101909844

>I thought I had at least a basic understanding on parallel dimensions
Well that's the thing, parallel dimensions are not proven, or even widely believed to exist.
And the fact that no extremely technological societies have hopped into ours through dimensions when there are supposedly an infinite amount of them, is automatic evidence to the contrary.
If it is truly infinite then an infinite amount of cross dimensional travel would exist.

As long as you ward stuff like motor functions, cognition, feelings and generally the important parts, and just limit it to the information your robofu stores, it'll be alright.
She can forget tomatos are fruit for example.

1. Prioritize the AI, this AI can later be deployed in distinct hardware.
2. The AI should be the nucleus and completely strata agnostic and have some kind of API for the programing of strata specific software. Example the AI can be used to program a desktop widget or a real scale real robot.

>>101910897
I assume this is for temporary memory, like information stored for the duration of a conversation, but discarded afterwards because it's no longer relevant. Eg. asking about today's mood.

Why not? We forget a lot of trivial stuff every day.

Yes, it doesn't go away because I'm not thinking about it.
A "common sense" database of relations like that had quite a bit of work done on it. I don't know where that project went.

I does actually goes away unless you somehow remember it periodically. The tomato example is a bad one because we are actually periodically remembering it, it's a cultural thing.

Shit, are you autists doing this for real? This is the saddest thread I've seen all day

>>101911682
Yeah I got it. I like doing projects like this in my free time, I made something a while ago with /vg/ but it's long been abandoned, and I have been working on a tool to grab anime airing times from all kinds of websites to display it as a handy schedule.

Since a waifu database would run on existing external assets, I assume there would be no need for original art? At least not for the development part.
>>
>>101911968
Art wouldn't hurt to maintain interest
>>
>>101911968
Probably not no, although something like a cute anime girl website mascot would be cool (if it doesn't look too cheesy).

Also the actual site design will probably be based on an existing stylesheet package (think: bootstrap, foundation, etc) so that it will look nice while requiring minimal coding.

If you have any ideas feel free to post or mail them though.
>>
>>101911348
> So any more people interested in something waifusim related
But what exactly? I'm a web programmer with 10 years of experience. Not a lot of time right now but I intend to have more not very far in the future. Mail in post.
>>
>>101912074
This. Art is essential for a proyect like this. People need motivation if not money it has to be beauty.
>>
>>101912074
But there's no direct need for it unlike skins for the old project waifu.
>>
>>101912105
Cool, not the guy but I'll also be working on it. I'll shoot you an email too
>>
>>101912105
see
>>101909414

>>101912190
>>101912199
The actual website doesn't need a lot of art. If there was a group of coders working on a waifusim client some people with designing experience would be nice.
>>
>>101912199
Wouldn't hurt for the website, GUI and concepts of it though, would it?
>>
So no robotic qt3.14 waifu now?

Fuck you guys ;_;
>>
>>101912594
Maybe anon, some day... We need to get this AI working first.
>>
Maybe something like cleverbot for the 'AI'? The problem with that model is that it's easily trolled but maybe anons can think about a way to make moderation possible.
>>
>>101912802
That would be horrible. The whole point lf the AI would be for it to be YOUR waifu, not everyone's cumslut.
>>
>>101912850
How would one even make an AI that will only recognize one person and do specific things based on that one person, and do other things for another?
Would you add all kind of facial recognition and voice recognition (which will need to be processed to formulate a reply)?

I really think a robot waifu is impossible with a bunch of random anons, even though it sounds awesome.
>>
>>101912850
A lot of anons share have popular waifus anyways. How many Yui husbandos do you think are out there? One?
>>
>>101912966
You could potentially do it, it's similar kit to what Kinect 2.0 does.
Kinect 2.0 however, has one of the biggest tech companies out there backing it, rather than a group of ragtag 4channers. And unfortunately it's currently a fixed Xbone-only device right now, instead of moderately open like Kinect 1.
>>
>>101912966
The same way as every other AI on the market today does things based around one person? Make the AI learn things about you?
>>
>>101912966
there's something called neural networks that is commonly used for facial recognitions and shit
also, maybe you'd need to download your waifu program and install it in her
alternatively, she could access your waifu's behavior via cloud
>>
>>101913094
Are there AIs in the market? I don't know shit about the subject but I'm surprised that there is not a open source 'AI' out there.
Of course a real AI has yet to be achieved but a specific purpose AI is good enough.
>>
>>101913111
Holy fuck anon, I just had the greatest idea. Make the AI program run on normal computers using the webcam, mkcrophone and speaker and then once the AI is developed, it can then be imported onto the bots, which themselves will just be mini computers to run the AI off
>>
>>101913249
i don't quite understand
what do you mean by "once the AI is developed"?
>>
>>101913373
Once it matures.
>>
>>101913373
Once the AI is almost finished, then you could just load it up onto a waifu bot.
>>
>>101913422
what's the difference having it in the computer then?
>>
>>101913479
You can't have her hug your fingers if she's in a computer
>>
>>101909846
It apparently takes a while to make one. Close to a month most of the time (could take more, though).

But you get to be with your waifu until you die, so.
>>
how the fuck will the AI get sentient levels of intelligence?

>>101914095
Rome wasn't built in a day. Once you have a program that can evolve, learn and adapt, with some rudimentary personality trait guidelines, all it takes is time for it to grow into a person.
>>
>>101914464
But making that initial program is the hard part
>>
>>101914523
Yes, but it doesn't have to be sentient right away. It can grow to be sentient in time.
It doesn't really make it any more easier to create.

As if any people would fund a project by a group of collective anons who haven't done anything together before and who have no idea on how much everything will cost.
>>
>>101915679
Do you have any idea of how many waifu fags there are?
>>
>>101915421
I'm not really sure. I got taught the basics of python and computational concepts (i.e. sorting algorithms, recursion, etc.). I want to see what I can do.

>>101915392
Sent.
>>
>>101915392

This seems to be the best idea honestly. Seems a lot like the Japanese app Yome Collection which is almost perfect besides needing a few tweaks. Having multiple pictures, sound clips, and interactions you can do to each waifu while it all being in English would be great.
>>
>>101915801
So now we have three python coders, a graphic artist and no one to work on the client side?
>>
>>101915798
not enough to get a good and widespread database, not to mention that most waifufags dont take it serious enough to submit content.
We need the japanese for this
>>
>>101915907
Well in my opinion it's more important to have the database structure thought out and set up first.

That way you can easily code the client around the API, I mean, it would be kinda hard to start coding something without any foundation set.
>>
>>101915911
>implying most Japanese aren't normalfags
>implying the japanese will ever support a western project like this
>implying there's not a shit tonne of waifu fags who will contribute
>>
>>101915911
Your better alternative would be to have generic trait-sets which contain a load of content, with special sets for individual characters that override certain interactions and events with things more specific to the loaded character at hand.
>>
>>101916087
That is a good point, however client side aspects are also very if not equally just as important for a project such as this. By the way, what would you like to do with the original client? Scrap and try to reprogram a better one in another language or expand upon the java one?

Project WaifuDB will be a website where people can add Waifu's to an online database (think MAL, without the cancer) and add pictures, voice clips, sounds, animations etc to a character.
If the user than has a waifusim client (desktop mascot thingy) he can download a waifu with assets which the client then can use to "simulate" your waifu.

We are now discussing things and making ideas, but we would love your help, even if you can do minimal coding or designing.

It isn't too terribly impractical depending on how the project is split up. Not everything needs a physical testbed to run on, a lot can be done in simulation.
Personality matrixes would be handy though. Something particularly high level to take care of action decision type thinking
>what do I like to do?

sort of thing.

Jesus Christ what the fuck are you idiots even talking about?

I'm currently attending university and am close to obtaining my bachelor's in computer science. Once I have that, I will be entering the Ph.D program at my university for computer science, with an emphasis in artificial intelligence. Once I have that, I've already got a verbal agreement with one of the other professors that I'll be able to work as an academic research professor there in the field of AI. Give me enough time and experience and I'll be able to start my own projects instead of just helping out on others. Then, waifubots. Obviously I won't call them that, or else nobody would fund me, but in the end I'll be making emotive AIs, which is the point.

What you have here? This is kiddy shit. A bunch of people with little to no programming knowledge sitting around on IRC and tossing ideas around without any idea how to implement them. Do you really think you'll be able to make the world's first emotive AI through an amateur collaboration on the internet?

Go to school. Get a Ph.D in robots or computer science. That's how you're going to make waifubots. Not by circlejerking on the internet over plans and diagrams about shit you don't actually know how to build.

Allow me to say this, as well. If any of you do get to the Ph.D level, I will gladly work with a team of Ph.D-holding anons to build waifubots together.

Don't act like you're hot shit for organizing an IRC of a bunch of idea-men, though. Because you're not.

If this actually goes anywhere, I'm pretty sure that people will quite quickly realise they need to cut things down in terms of what is and isn't feasible.
Realistic /AI/ in its literal form is something which isn't really possible by a ragtag group, but a load of the other features would be workable to produce something decent.

In some ways I wish I'd done biotechnology for human/machine interfaces, but I don't really have what it takes to undertake such things from an intelligence standpoint, so it's not really a solution which people could just 'do' to go off and get a qualification in something or other.

I know.

>>101922983

>>implying you need to do all that shit you talk about to make a simple waifu AI

You want an AI that can accurately replicate emotion and personality, in a dynamic manner? That's going to take work. Look at BINA48. That's some of the most advanced human-like AI we have, and it's barely functional most of the time.

>Plus why are you being such an asshole, do you hold a PhD? Doubt it.

No, but I'm doing more than sitting around thinking about what I want to do. I'm actually going out and doing it, on a route that won't lead to a dead project, like so many others.

>What is kickstarter?

You want to fund a project to create the world's first emotive AI through Kickstarter? Think about this for a moment. Please, think about it. This isn't an indie game. This is creating the world's first emotive AI.

If you're actually working towards it, that's great! So am I! But sitting around on an IRC tossing around ideas with other people isn't "working towards it". It's what people who are too lazy to actually work on something do to make themselves feel like they're actually working on something.

I should know, since I used to do it all the time.

I don't mean to be a Danny Downer like this, but I'm just trying to show you guys that, if you really do want this, like I do, there are better, more practical ways to go about it. If you've never been to college, haven't been to school in years, look into your local community colleges. Start your education back up. Take a few classes your first semester, just to get your feet wet again. Then, figure out which aspect of it you want to head into. The mechatronics side? The programming side? Take your time, take a few classes in either side, figure out which seems more fun to you, go with that.

But do more than sitting around on your computers on IRC talking about it. You won't get anywhere with that. If you go back to school, though, then you'll go much, much further.

For reference, you should be coding in C++, nothing else, if you're aiming for a serious AI, and not a play-around chatbot sort of thing. If you're going for the latter, then Python or Java is fine. Preferably Python, IMO, if it's not going to be a CPU-intensive thing.

C++ is preferred for a serious project because it's far more efficient than most other languages, besides basic C and just flat out ASM.

If you're looking at some crazy innovative and advanced AI, chances are you're going to want to take advantage of as many performance benefits as you can. Python is not a language to do that in. It's not a bad language, but it's not really suitable.

LISP WAS.

Now you can program in anything. CPP/Python/etc. imo best is either python or cpp. CPP's upside is nativity of the code. Python's upside is ease of use.

Personally I think python is better for the current work. CPP is enterprise grade.
>>
If you're building an AI you should base it off something like
>http://sentic.net/
Give it the ability to reason about simple things.

Additionally it would be possible to emulate certain types of inductive reasoning through sentential logic, and end up with more abstract types of thinking. I was doing substantial research into it for a research paper.

>>101923993
Are you kidding? You can do more complex things in python and Lisp than in C, because of their dynamic features.

You can program in anything, but some problems are better suited for particular languages or groups of languages because of the features they support.

Using C++, write me a function that takes an argument n, and returns a function that takes an argument n1 and returns n1^n.

So:
f(x) -> f2
such that f2(y) -> y^x
Go on, I'll wait.

If you don't format your code right, of course it's going to look like shit. When you pretty-print, parentheses don't get in the way.

Imagine if I wrote all my code like this:
[code:lit]
for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++){if(\
(i % 2) == 0)
{printf("Even number!");}}

;As opposed to this clean lisp code!
(loop for i below 10 do
(when (eq (mod i 2) 0)
(print "Even number!")))

Be sure to add new ideas to the trello if you guys think of them
>>
>>101924780

Even there, you've got two types of brackets and a semicolon helping to make the end of the C-style line clearer. LISP just has a mass of close brackets.

As programs get more and more complex (And any AI program is going to be exceedingly complex), the code will need to stay clear, and LISP having everything wrapped in the same type of bracket doesn't help that.
>>

I'm a programmer specializing in code efficiency
gimmie your shit code and I'll clean it right the fuck up
>>
>>101925461
Actually, in some Lisp dialects, you can use parens and brackets interchangeably.
eg:
(+ 5 [* 9 3])

I can appreciate that it's a mess to look at initially, but as long as you pretty-print, once you actually understand the language and WHY lisp has so many parentheses, it's quite easy to read.

In ANY language, you need to separate your code to make thing more maintainable and readable.

Things are only embedded if they need to be.

>ai bot
>no computational power
You are a stupid shit
Image processing, like so they can see shit? requires an ass ton of proccessing power, most of those robots you see on the news "omg it can read expressions" have like ten computer hooked up behind them. the raspberry pi isn't up to scratch to handle an AI, an AI with lists of functions and tasks it can perform using a scripting language native to it's own mind. so it can rewrite them when it encounters a new thing to interact with. sophisticated enough to express any authentic expression of love and not just a recording of the words "I love you" will burn down your fucking how on that thing.

if you want it to handle anything you would need a wireless connection from your RP to handle the basic IO to your small cluster to handle the bulk of the work. like this mother fucker said:
>>101926303

there's also the fact that do you want it to walk? there's so many variables with a real walking robot, you want that thing to do shit for you it has to calculate it's speed, the position of the floor, any objects in it's path, any movement, it has to know about everything surrounding it, all the micro movements in it's limbs to maintain balance without looking like it has something shoved up it's ass.

in short: impossible
>>
Image recognition and voice recognition are very processor-intensive operations.

The brainstorming graph contains an idea about maintaining a body temperature with internal heating. This will be unnecessary: merely the processing required for real-time image processing will already heat the unit, likely above human temperatures. You should be more concerned about cooling.

For an actual robot with actual human-like joints, a significant amount of heat would be generated by the motors. Operating human-like limbs quickly requires a lot of energy. Quick movements generate heat. For a nimble humanoid robot, passive cooling of the joints would not be enough.
>>
>>101926461
>unless we want 100% accurate realistic one that requires jiggawatts of power

Come on guys, what's illustrated is obviously the dream goal. We know that we're obviously going to fall short of it, but we'll get as far as we get.
>>
>>101926461
None of those are impossible to do. There's been plenty of research and open documentation into bipedal locomotion.
The need for micro adjustments will be lessened in my design by the inherent compliance of air muscle actuators. This will also allow a more realistic gait and graceful interaction with unknown objects. I'm basing this off a journal paper, if I can find a link I'll share it with you.
>>
Ok, you want a small bipedal robot with an AI. If you want it not to be tethered your will be fucked by a battery.
The only thing i know of that they could compare it to would be NEC's Papero; its on wheels and lacks on the AI side of things, and still only gets 2 hours of life, but it does everything onboard and shows that it is somewhat possible.
Go look at the Japanese NEC site for some ideas since the english one is lacking, or find a bipedal robot that you could more easily base yours off of.
>>
>>101926706
on a raspberry pi the best you can do is have a program that says simple things in response to you and follows you around with a single motion sensor and a remote control car

>You should be more concerned about cooling.
That is what the anus is for.
>>
>>101927207
Fan cooling using the ass as an exhaust
>>
>>101927072
Most of the computation will be handled by another networked rig. I wasn't even the one for the pi, I just couldn't immediately dismiss it's usefulness in my project.

>>101926574
They really don't but it depends on what you use for the actuation, in my case it wouldn't be an issue.
>>
>>101926765
>If you want it not to be tethered
This is not a problem, the wAIfu doesn't need to leave the house.

>>101927262
Exactly. The rest of the body can be watercooled with a vein system, where it is discharged in the form of flatulence every few minutes.
>>
>>101927262
Do you really want your waifu to be farting continuously? A better solution would be to try to model human sweating. I'm sure a lot of anons would like to feel their waifus' sweaty body.
>>
>>101927409
B-but that's lewd!
>>
>>101927409
Well it's not like it's going to be smelly farts. And sweating wont do much to cool the interior, which is where most of the heat will be trapped. You could probably leech water out of the vein water-cooling system in the form of sweat, but that'd mean you'd have to constantly water your wAIfu.
>>
>>101927386
>waifu farting every few minutes
we really should try something like sweat if possible
it's gonna make it incredibly hard though, harder than it already is
>>
>>101915743

You just described 90% of Kickstarter's projects though, honestly.
>>
>>101927581
I suppose we could make her cool through a breath system, and only use the farts as an emergency cooling system.
>>
>>101927409
>>101927386
A hydraulically actuated
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AmAVFSSbS0
could potentially work, I've never really thought about it though. It would certainly allow for a heated robot while keeping the components constrained to a certain temperature range. Water could be even wicked away for cooling/sweat simulation.

Hello, I got linked here from /g/
I'm a programmer and mechanical engineer. More importantly I have worked on many large projects, and have learned what sort of projects succeed. I am not personally interested in this project, but I will give my advice nonetheless.

Give up on the physical aspect. This is /a/ right? Your anime is 2d and on the screen, so should your waifu. This will reduce the work load dramatically.
If it needs to be a physical object, go extremely simple, like one of those pillows or a sex doll. Note that this would reduce what could be done programming wise.

As far as the programming goes, put together and modify code other people have written. Just doing that is a massive project that will probably never get done, but is more likely to succeed than starting from scratch.
Alternatively, you could start from scratch but just have lower expectations as for what the AI could do. At a achievable minimum it could have weekly activities, get pissed off if you clicked its tits, etc.

Yeah, we came to that conclusion on IRC. It's good to see other people agreeing that it's the right decision though.

The project is now going to be a computer application (possibly with android and iOS ports) where you talk to your waifu.

Right now our main goal is interaction via text (typing). Just a simple command line interface front while we sort this nightmare of a problem out.

We're looking at current technologies, seeing how they do things, and trying to see how we can improve their strategies.

Discussion topic:

What do you think defines the understanding of a given word?

I think this is mostly branching into two, one who want to make an actual robot and the others who are more interested in an AI (Sits in Desktop etc..) Anyhow, I can't into web back end but I'd like to contribute as much as possible. Who do I contact?

Understanding is mostly being able to use the word to _do_ something, it's an action. It's not so much the definition that matters, but the intent of what's being said (pragmatics). That's why you can have mangled sentences, fragments, etc. and still 'understand' what the other person is trying to say. Frame it as a game-theoretic interplay between the speaker, the listener and the environment.

>Following the recent Ontario/Canada Roundtable on Gender Equality, the below provisions have been proposed for the new Human-Robot Personal Relationship Act, the first draft of which is currently being finalized.The provisions are specifically meant to target the concerns that were expressed at the roundtable that sexbots will negatively impact the pursuit for gender equality and may unduly emphasize the objectification of women as sexual objects.The suggested provisions fall into the larger framework of regulating the emerging service robot industry that will be governed by the Human-Robot Personal Relationship Act and under the direction of the Ministry of Robots and Artificial Intelligence, to be established in Ontario and other Canadian provinces and territories at the end of next year.

It is further proposed that provisions 6 and 7 are integrated into the Criminal Code of Canadato ensure uniformity with respect to the illegal creation, use, distribution, advertising, export and import of sexbots which are made in the image of minors under the age of 18. For the purposes of s. 163.1 of the Criminal Codethe definition of “child” should include sexbots created in the image of minors under the age of 18.

…The use of sexbots shall be restricted to government-regulated establishments unless otherwise approved by the Ministry of Robots and Artificial Intelligence.

…The use of sexbots in the privacy of one’s home is prohibited, unless otherwise permitted by the Ministry of Robots and Artificial intelligence or a relevant regulating agency as per the criteria outlined in the Human-Robot Personal Relationship Act.

Try harder faggots.
You don't need a robot, as it won't fix your issues of actually being with your waifu, since other niggers can have COPIES of your bot and you will never have the real one.

Unless you use my theory. The Multi-Media Universe Theory.
The multiverse is large yes? So in faggot-language it means: Go build a bridge to cross the dimension to find your waifu. I've unfortunately started, while you fagolosas just jerked around in a thread. I've already thought of this in fucking first grade.

Huehuehue, who will race me to RailDex universe? I'm jumping in first.

Come on anon, we all know you're the only one who would love your shitty waifu anyway.
>>
>>101939007
You think the American public gives a shit about a rational argument about it stopping pedophilia? I guess you have more faith then me.
>>
>>101939060
The MMUT?
It's a theory based on the fact that any media, story, show, book you've read, watched and seen is actually it's own universe. However, these universes can be altered and re-wrtteen due to canon changes from the creators.

So technically, the writers of said show, book, anime are the gods of their universe.

So I suppose you could WRITE your own waifu into existence. I know many people will probably laugh at these posts, but hell, I'm as autistic as all of you, I'm crazy enough to try.

Building a prototype that will cross universes? Might as well try. Who has?

No, just a crazy canadian who is entirely bored with life.
Are you really happy with your life? Why not go on a adventure in the multiverses? Of course, with your waifu.

I've already been given helk on /mlp/, seem they don't want their pony waifus.
You bet your ass I'll charge you thousands if I do this and you're still alive.
>>
>>101939172
You gotta have faith in the people. Not anyone is braindead, and they might even support this if they hear a rational argument about it.
Of course, they could also all be retarded, which is definitely a possibility.
>>
>>101939444
If you actually succeed, you won't even need to charge thousands--you can leave this shithole and move on to brighter worlds.
I also feels sorry for you since you're Canadian, which I suppose just accelerates the urgency you need to complete this.
>>
>>101937567
Sounds good.
Like >>101937888 says, much of what people say is unnecessary, the program will have to pick out the key words and work with them.
For example: "I was walking to class today and I saw some guy get hit by a car."

walking : An action.
class: Describer of walking.
I: Something that performed the action.

hit: An action.
car: Describer of hit, and something that performed the action.
guy: Something that the action effected.

was: This occurred in the past
today: Occurred between 12:00AM and the current time

So to understand a sentence like that, you need a database of what the important words mean. Also a program that can decide what words are important and why by looking at the glue words (by, to, etc).

If you guys build the android body and get it moving, there's a good chance the team in charge will get a buttload of money from DARPA.
I just hope there's someone among you that knows math higher than Calculus 3 and Linear Algebra. Inverse kinematics is going to be important, as well as object collision avoidance.

Yeah I do at least. I dunno about the money from darpa thing not sure if they're doing the humanoid robotics competition again. But a team from 4chan would be so lulz worthy.
>>
>>101940064
So basically what you're saying is is that, you want to make a android girl, that sucks your dick and is in no way actually alive biologically, just a program created by you, and will probably rust, think-to-death or kill itself?

So you don't want a real girl then. You don't want to actually feel real things. Fuck this board then.

There really are some autistic fags who are born that way, but I guess some just want to stay lonely.

Pick one. The only reason it's seen as evil is because 'muh undeveloped children'. If you can remove that from the equation then there's no evil, and it might as well be a 'I don't like what you like' argument.

I know you were being facetious.
>>
>>101940391
Why would you want a real female when the alternative is vastly superior? It doesn't come with any of the negatives, and all of the positives, unless you're referring to comradeship. Comradeship can be obtained from other sources, like friends or buddies over the Internet, no need to integrate it with the sexbot.

>>101940391

If that were the case, they would not need artificial intelligence at all. We already have all the technology necessary to make a sex doll that will suck your dick for you. The reason they want an android is because on some level, they do in fact seek companionship, but with actual human beings, there is always the chance that they will either never be able to attract a mate, or that that mate will betray them. A robot that could be made to be intelligent and with some small level of free will, but unable to ever leave their partner without being commanded to, would seem to be what most people wanting a robot waifu would be looking for, even if they are not saying it.

>ITT: We keep making ideas to bring us closer to physically bring with our beloved waifu.

Making a robotic waifu is so far away from reality that planning stages at this point are useless, robotic technology still needs to catch up. Making a humanoid robot that walks alone takes millions of dollars and years of development from veterans that have specialized in robotics and programming,
even if you got millions of dollars some how the end result would be only ONE waifu bot, trying to mass produce and offer variants to everyone's taste would be just as big of a hurdle if not bigger.

You want a realistic approach to be with your waifu on an acceptable level it's going to have to be through augmented reality.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bc_TCLoH2CA#t=234

This way you can skip all the problems and costs of a physical manifestation and actually have a chance for everyone working on the project to experience the fruits of their labor instead of dying in front of some robotic skeleton since the project would be software oriented. Being software oriented also means more anons could simultaneously participate in the project as well as the technology while still not perfect is here and available on a consumer level.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCCx7zANsGE

The next eventual step way down the road would be a full consciousness upload into data, why bring your beautiful waifu to this disgusting world where you'll eventually die and leave her? I say we join them forever in a new one.
>>
>>101942204
Do you know why a Waifu AI hasn't been made yet?

Because it's hard as fuck to code human like AI, no fucking idiot is going to code all this for free and then make it free ware.

The closest AI we probably has is cleverbot but it's actually closer pseudo AI since it doesn't actually think it's simply following long experiences and formulas

And we reject you because it's unfeasible.
>>
>>101942346
>>101942413
I think everyone on the field knows or assumes well that truAI definetly won't run on x86.
It would require dedicated hardware and millions in investment.

>>101942456
Emergent AI isn't necessary to achieve realistic behavior.

>>101942499

>>101940546
This isn't going to happen in THIS project, but if you end up with a sentient mind, you can't keep it as a slave, because doing so would make you a sociopath.
>>
>>101942413
>unfeasible
If only because you guys keep thinking we'll have anything more than Siri/Now/Cortana with extensions and lookup tables of lookup tables for distinct personalities.
>>
I like the desktop widget idea. A small app that has your waifu inhabit your main computer workspace. Can make it so that you can play fun little games with her, communicate, interact, have random events like getting sleepy, hungry, etc. Maybe something with interactions similar to the game Barcode Kanojo but with more depth. She can also be helpful and find files for you or remind you about upcoming calendar events.. If that's in her personality. The idea of having a representation of my waifu like this to interact with would be a great first step. I'm sure there are some good coders around here and the main time sink would be customizing and creating profiles for each girl's specific personality. Starting simple and building up should work well though.
>>
>>101942774
Why not just make something that is easy to mod and let people add in their own waifus?
>>
>>101942774
So basically we ask the creator of Bonzi Buddy for his source code?
>>
>>101942896
>>101942774

Include basic charactistics (like tsundere/yandere) that people can add to their waifu in order for everyone to customize it to fit their personality, especially if they have a lesser known waifu.
>>
>>101942346
I think actual AI might get somewhere if it starts out as some university lead open source project.
>>
>>101943149
>>101942896
Of course. It would just be like having users creating skins or profiles and whatnot for it. As long as there's a solid default to use as reference, there shouldn't be many issues. With animated movements and shit it might be difficult to get each skin working perfectly without other modifications though. Not too sure about things like that
