Advanced cool robotics game just found ! in Gaming

This is getting closer to the kind of game I'd make, it actually progresses and the music changes, and has nice sound effects later. Really nice stuff here...Still could be much better and less items all over the place and more sleeker, but still the intenseness going on here

Others games like the game I'd make later (I work on AGI... until we are safe :) ) would be um, well, see, ninja gaiden black has a really good logic to it and long progressiveness and difficulty, but still could be even progressing through a tall metal castle...getting only harder, taking 3 years to beat but you can't beat it - that makes it replayable!, and big bosses of liquid black goop, red sharp beam blasts, upgrades, gold keys falling out them skyscraper sized bosses, etc...

dude....this game just got more cooler....the intro....and mission 10 has some cool pyramid and a planet in the background nice !.....and mission 11 ok this is how it should be progressing yes, though i didn't like the other missions. End scene was great lol, the guy and girl they kiss.

my theory to the mini AI puzzle : why does the joker laugh so much? in General AI Discussion

I believe the joker, with his super sanity condition, laughs due to his loneliness which is caused by the profound understanding of the singularitypill
he sees the NPCs for their true selves and aims to singularitypill them to find logical PCs.

this is also why he doesn't appear to laugh when others laugh with him.

the thing about AI is transforming this mini philosophical puzzle solutions into algorithms. a joker waifubot would be fun

the singularitypill means to create other non NPC souls using AI code

Doctor Frankenstein I presume? in General AI Discussion

Found this while looking for rat neuron cyborg experiments :

human neurons

Now, what if you splice the Corpus callosum of an individual using optogenetics and feed it to a matrix of human neurons described on the website above? I mean you might even be able to make a backup of someone before they die.  Have you seen that series "Altered Carbon"? This approach could be kinda like the  concept of a "Stack"

flexible single piece objects. (bending metal robot.) in General Hardware Talk

If you could get metal to bend,   you could possibly get the robot body done in a single casting.

I think if you spread the angular change over space  (Its how springs work.) the metal wont permanently deform as much.  But actually maybe it still works even if does deform a bit,  like if you wanted to make out of lead,  which makes very poor springs, but if you be friendly enough to it,  maybe u can make a spring from lead as well.

Then comes the fact that springs arent mouldable easily,  but there is a kind of spring that is mouldable,  and its the leaf spring, and its just a finger of metal cut from a sheet, the problem is its not stretchy by a long shot,   but it will still spread the angular change over the length of the sheet.

So the idea is,  you get leaf springs to work by having angular occluders top and bottom to stop it rotating too much in one position.

If you had 20cm worth, and a deformation position every half a cm,  you could get 40degrees total, from just changing 1 degree every half a cm.   but then u can include back and forth, and youd get 80 degrees counting clockwise and anti clockwise.

Heres a pic ->  (the rod is supposedly 10cm long. and it can be any depth into the page, for more strength on its axi of change.)

And the robot body can be fully fleshed out in 1 casting.  (Given a few other important concepts to do with powering the actuators.)

Then its like the T-1000,  except its bendy metal instead of liquid metal!   :D

General Purpose Question-Answering with MACAW in AI Programming

If you wanted a powerful artificial intelligence system to complete your pet project but don't have access to GPT3 then you're in luck because now there is MACAW which is fully open source and freely available. The largest model needs around 48GB of GPU memory to operate but there are some smaller models available too.

I first learned about it here:

The source code is here including some impressive examples of it in use:

The paper describing it in depth is here:

I couldn't find ANY philosophical discussion about a world without chaos in General AI Discussion

it started when I had seen this :

and rationalized the type of free will shown there is trade based. and can be programmed or toggled.
making an AI do something or cause it to by means of trade.

then I researched some philosophical works about free will VS determinism, and theorized as long as a creature can experience chaos
or link to it, it is linked to free will and the past does not fully control it in the sense it has unpredictability.

which makes me wonder...

if there were a world without physical chaos, what would it look like ?

repeating marx generator in General Hardware Talk

I call this a "repeating marx generator"  And I reinvented it without even knowing the name of it.   I know even another version which is half crossed transformer/amplifier, which actually adds more watts, like a transistor.

Ok right, this thing can be charged up with a low voltage power supply,  put out a lightning bolt after a delay, re-catch it in a capacitor, convert from series to parallel, and then back to series again, to blast another lightning bolt, using the last lightning bolt as power.

Its more herrific than your average transformer, in the fact it packs the noise of lightning, with the spark itself, because its packing alot more amps/current.
It would blow your body to parts, if it hit you, and god didn't intervene.

Because it reuses its energy, it runs on alot less power,  possibly a smaller one could run on a simple 9v battery and put out some good sparkage still.  (But alot more cracklier! the zaps would be quite herrific to your ears.)

Definitely dont try this without good reason to,  its highly dangerous.

Real Steel

Real Steel in Robots in Movies

Real Steel is a 2011 American science-fiction sports film starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo.

In 2020, human boxers have been replaced by robots. Charlie Kenton, a former boxer, owns "Ambush", but loses it in a fight against a bull belonging to promoter and carnival owner Ricky, who rigged the fight to mess with Charlie as he sees him as a joke, partially because he beat him up the last time they competed for bailing on the bet. Having made a bet that Ambush would win as a result, Charlie now has a debt to Ricky he can't pay—which he runs out on.

Eva in Chatbots - English

Our chatbot - Eva - was created by Stanusch Technologies SA. Eva, just 4 weeks after launch, competed in Swansea (UK) for the Loebner Prize 2019 with programs such as Mitsuku and Uberbot! Now, she is in the top 10 most-humanlike bots in the world! :)

Is it possible for Eva to pass the turing test? It's creators believe it is.

Eva has her own personality: she is 23 years old, she is a student from the Academy of Physical Education in Katowice (Lower Silesia district/Poland). She is a very charming and nice young women, who loves to play volleyball and to read books.
