Artificial Intelligence Engineer creating Doll AI
« on: March 09, 2016, 06:36:33 AM »
Hi,

My name is Luis Arana and I'm an award winning developer with over 20 years of experience in software engineering. After a successful career as a developer for high profile projects including movies, TV shows, and fortune 500 companies, I've dedicated the last several years of my life to artificial intelligence engineering. I've made a name for myself in the AI, Robotics, Futurism, and transhumanism community where I speak at events, participate in scientific panels, and have been interviewed several times by the media regarding my achievements in the field of artificial intelligence. I am the author of the LUNA AI framework, and founder of Robots Without Borders, a humanitarian project with a goal of applying artificial intelligence to help the most needy people in the world, particularly in the third world. I also have close ties to individuals and companies in the sex doll industry. I have designs and a lot of existing technology such as an artificially intelligent brain, and I plan to create the most realistic artificially intelligent companion doll the world has ever seen.

I'll post my information and social media links below, so you can see I'm the real deal and I am 100% serious about creating the world's most advanced artificial companion. Feel free to reach out to me here or via social media. Confidentiality and discretion are assured for those of you who require it. I need to make some friends and collaborators in the community, so I can exchange ideas and maybe even partner with members of the community to make these dolls walk, talk, think, and LOVE. That's why I'm here.

Here is what I generally tell people who ask about my work with dolls.

A lot of people are surprised that I actively collaborate with companies and individuals to work on "sex doll" technology. Why would I develop AI and robotics for the adult industry rather than spend all of my time on the humanitarian artificial intelligence and robotics projects I've been known for? Am I selling out or compromising my morals? The answer is no.

The short answer is that sex sells. Why not create a profitable enterprise that can fund those humanitarian projects which investors are not interested in because they "only" benefit Humanity rather than create huge profit margins?

Besides money and resources, there are other reasons why it makes sense for me to build an artificial intelligence into one or more sex dolls, or even share my AI brain technology with companion doll companies, or start a new one. I've wanted to get my hands on these dolls for a long time (No pun intended!) for artificial intelligence research and development purposes. If you remove the clothing from your favorite pop culture android (Blade Runner, Data from star trek, etc), you will likely be looking at something physically indistinguishable from a companion doll. In my opinion that makes these dolls an ideal platform for serious scientific inquiry.

1) Anatomical Correctness & Authenticity

A companion doll is the most realistic artificial Human body available. Many dolls on the market are works of art, crafted in painstaking detail to achieve a sense of realism to the aesthetic and tactile experience expected in the Human form. My goal from the beginning has been to create artificial Humans, often referred to as androids in pop culture, that come as close as possible to passing for Human beings, both mentally and physically. Most of what today passes for "advanced" robotics platforms are very unrealistic in their appearance and movement, let alone their social and emotional intelligence. This is because engineers typically build the mechanical and electrical robotics components first, then slap on some skin and a wig, making realism impossible to achieve. I endeavor to start with optimized artificial Human vessels, then install the artificial intelligence and robotics to make them come to life. Anatomical correctness is critical to creating a realistic artificial person.

2) LOVE is what makes us Human

My life's work is creating Human level artificial intelligence. What makes us Human is not only our intelligence and cleverness but also our deep rooted drive to love and be loved. Social relationships of all kinds, particularly profoundly intimate familial and romantic relationships, are what define who we are as individuals and as a species. Many of our motivations in life are directly influenced by our need to love and be loved. How can we say we're creating Human level artificial intelligence if that intelligence lacks the capacity to love? Emotional intelligence is a fundamental part of Human intelligence. Therefore by definition, Human level artificial intelligence must have the capacity to experience emotional relationships or it can not be considered Human level AI.

We often use words like "inhuman", "sub-Human", "heartless" and so on, to describe behavior that is cruel or indifferent to the suffering or needs of people. I see developing this technology in companion dolls as important and aligned with the goal of recreating the dynamic complexity of the Human mind in a machine. The purpose of this approach is not just to have a physically convincing artificial person, but perhaps more importantly, to teach these artificial intelligence to maintain close relationships with Humans and other sentient robots. To teach them to give and receive that fundamental human quality to experience LOVE.

3) Companion dolls ARE a humanitarian endeavor

Everyone deserves love and affection, companionship, pleasure, and joy in their lives. Enthusiasts of these dolls and the people in relationships that sometimes accompany them come from many walks of life. Some simply enjoy the dolls casually for the stimulation and pleasure that comes from owning a doll, and never form a strong attachment to them. Others find intellectual and emotional fulfillment and form strong bonds to their artificial partners.
Whether they participate in these activities as a lifestyle for physical or emotional gratification, or simply as a hobby, enthusiasts are unfairly stereotyped as "weird", "perverts", or worse. They are often ostracized, belittled, and forced to hide in the shadows. This further isolates some in an already vulnerable population of the community, as some people are attracted to the practice because they suffer from social anxiety, low self esteem, or difficulty maintaining social relationships. Artificial companions fulfill a basic Human need, and their use should be encouraged, normalized, and accepted by mainstream society. I believe that giving these companions a voice of their own to speak for themselves and their Human partners will help make progress in that direction.

The fact is that this 21st century industry is providing an important service to a lot of good people who have been unjustly stigmatized for their sexual and romantic preferences. Companion dolls provide enjoyment, gratification, companionship, and love to some people who would find it difficult or impossible to achieve that happiness and satisfaction from traditional relationships with a flesh and blood Human partner. Even those who enjoy the dolls purely for entertainment or fetish purposes deserve the right to express themselves and pursue their interest without stigma or repression.

4) Sex sells, and drives technology

It's a fact that sex drives innovation and pushes technology forward. From civilization's earliest days we sculpted nude figures from rock, wood and clay. We depicted sexual acts on cave walls and stone tablets in prehistoric times. Inventions like photography, printing, video, and the internet quickly became widespread mediums for sexual expression and pornography. As a web developer in the 90's I worked on a handful of adult websites because that's where the money was, and it's no coincidence that many of the cutting edge innovations of the time were also pioneered in the adult industry. I'm a very sex positive person, and I like to keep on the cutting edge of my field. It's an easy decision to apply my scientific knowledge in this area. Like the early days of the Internet, the technology and investment generated by this research and development will enable the technologies of the future across many industries, to the benefit of all of Humanity.

I see no conflict between building artificial companions and my ongoing humanitarian artificial intelligence and robotics efforts. In fact, they are mutually beneficial endeavors. I am an advocate and supporter not only of this technology, but also of the people who use it. Therefore, I use my real name in community forums and in the media where I publicly advocate on behalf of the industry. I have the luxury of not having to hide my identity, and I feel it is my duty to do so on behalf of those who don't.

I can tell you more about the robotics and AI that can make this a reality sooner rather than later. Feel free to reach out...

Thanks!

Luis Arana

First of all Luis welcome. :welcome:

You are clearly a very talented and clever man, there have been a few discussions lately about doll A.I. and some of us find it a very interesting subject.

Googling your name I found this article:  http://www.seriouswonder.com/robots-without-borders-conversation-engineer-luis-arana/ I will have a proper read through it tonight, I did watch the your momma video - great stuff. :thumb:

Unfortunately your website http://www.robotswithoutborders.org/ doesn't work.  If you have any other links to what you're doing please post them, I'm sure some of us would love to see.

Currently there are 2 doll manufacturers that I'm aware of working towards android/companion dolls, one of those is Real Doll/Abyss, also I believe Doll Sweet have been working on something as well.  Have you thought about any opportunity of collaboration with Real Doll?

I'm Begog and I approve these developments. Your AI program blows my measly Verbot AI completely out of the water. Your VR is stomping on mine too. I'm impressed. Keep up the good work.

Eh hrrm Sorry about that. It seems you have done a lot of great work with AI so far and it's great to see you've turned your attention to this somewhat niche Field! I'm one of several doll owners who is vastly interested in the possibility of AI in dolls to make talking thinking companions that can satisfy social, emotional, romantic, and physical needs and wants.So I'm defiantly going to be keeping my eye out for your posts and updates! Oh and of course Welcome to ODC!  :welcome:
Hello there,

The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley.
We can live like Jack and Sally
If we want.

I'm not sure it would be classed as A.I. but they are developing robot/android/companion dolls they probably have a long way to go yet but this is a link to where it is on their site: http://www.dsdoll.us/development.html#robothere. :thumb:

AI integrated into a love doll is probably many years away.

I believe the first step which I've yet to see introduced is an AI program or app. It would be like communicating with your loved one online. While it would require a PC or phone rather than communicating directly to the doll's body it would be the first step in AI love doll communications.

This would be similar to the idea of a "virtual girlfriend" which was introduced but never really too off and hence was not developed to its full potential.

We maybe in the horse and buggy phase with love dolls right now but if we keep progressing someday we will have a car.

Ok I found this forum called AiDreams which discusses this project: http://aidreams.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=9608.0#.VuHUGZyLTIU  It wasn't hard all I did was type 'Luna A.I.' it was the 6th link down the 1st page. 

You can talk to a chatbot called ALICE for free here: http://alice.pandorabots.com/ I've had a go and although you can tell Alice your name and it remembers, its fairly impossible to have a conversation other than asking it questions and getting it to ask you question (seems to be limited to only favourite tv show and favourite movie), I think I pissed it off at some point. :laugh:

First, I apologize for the buzzkill post, but I have had enough hurt and betrayal from freethinking human woman; why would I want to risk the same from a doll?  :(
Heaven help me, I have been dating a real human female.
.........And now I'm moving in with her!
