home robots
« on: October 08, 2017, 06:48:14 pm »
I haven't posted for a long time but I'm going to introduce myself again. I'm a disabled computer tech who would like to make a home robot with ai. I don't know much about ai so I guess I need to learn a bunch. I've played with Guile3d Denise but not really happy with it, and a couple of others.

Welcome back Zoraster :)

Since we started this site over a decade ago I've found one of the best ways to learn is to do some practical programming work. I don't know if this is possible for you but thought I would mention it.

Hello.
Literary the ton of projects is at https://www.hackster.io/. All the imaginable and unimaginable things. And there're a lot of sites with the same topic.
You may try as well reverse-engineer robotic vacuum cleaners. I have this Idea for a long time myself. There're so many ways you can modify them and gain an amazing experience and knowledge in robotics, data-processing, image-recognition etc.  Just search for documentation for as much as possible models and develop a vision of way one engineered better or worse than another. Here full skope of currently successful models  http://tenrows.com/robot-vacuum/

For a home robot one of the best are certainly from Boston Dynamics...(if you have $$$$  :))

Instead of a Home Robot with a Smart A.I. why not just make a Smart Home with a built in A.I.?

A robot can only physically be in one place at a time whereas a Smart Home is all seeing and all knowing, able to immediately pinpoint a problem, fix or contain it, then alert you, the owner, that there was an issue but that it has already been dealt with. Now that's efficient and reassuring.

One can also start with a relatively small budget and much less hardware and programming skills than is required in the construction of a robot and the thousands of dollars invested in hardware, not to mention the many, many hours of programming attempts. Again, covering one place at a time while trying to navigate the home with people / children / pets / obstacles, etc.

Not trying to dissuade you but merely to provide some options to accomplish the same goal.

You could converse with your house as you might with Google Home, Alexa, Cortana, Siri or whatever similar device.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
