Hello,

This is our first time posting.
I have enjoyed reading some of the topics here.
So I thought I should post my own project.
If this is the wrong place, please just remove it.
Thank in advance.

What is Project-Aiko?

Here at Project Aiko, we are trying to design an artificial intelligence
neural network system which uses both dynamic software and hardware linked
together to mimic some human behaviour.

By using our custom designed artificial intelligence software named the Bio
Robot Artificial Intelligence Neural System (a.k.a. B.R.A.I.N.S.) together
with our custom designed shell which is a facsimile of the human female
body, we have created what we believe to be a uniquely designed android
(a.k.a. Aiko).

Aiko's head and body were made from silicone, which gives the body a more
natural look and feel of a human figure. Aiko has the ability to have a
conversation with you (13,000+ sentences), including the ability to learn
new things. Aiko can read books, newspapers, including the ability to solve
math problems. In additional, she can recognize colour, faces and simple
objects.

In the future, we hope to be able to implement advanced functionality such
as being able to distinguish between two different drinks and then being
able to bring it to you. Other functionality would be an ability to massage
your shoulders and neck, having Aiko tell you to bring an umbrella when it
rains or wear warmer clothes when it is cold outside. That and much more
is planned.

Our approach to this project is to have things be modular which gives us the
ability to add more functionality and sub-systems in the future as permitted
by our resources, such as a taste bud and breathing system.

Sincerely,
Le

A.I. is a subject very close to my heart. This project sounds very interesting. I'd like to know more about it.

Hi !

You can read more about our project or you can watch the demo video at newbielink:http://www.projectaiko.com [nonactive]

If you still need more informations, you can email to us or post it here.
I will try my best to answer your question.

Hi Karen

We are hoping that the body will return back to us by the end of the month.
Most likely Mid of August. We will do more demo once Aiko has a body.
Example, making coffee etc.

I think this is a terrific project especially for people whom may be incapacitated and may be of help to them, besides the fact that it is just way cool! I am amazed by this and love the fact that you all are working so diligently on her. I wish you and her every success.. She is a great project! Absolutely Fabulous!

I first became interested in psychology as a result of studying AI when I was doing my comp sci degree.

 That is really cool Doc. It is interesting the degree of recognition in her. She sounds as if she has a lot of great potential..

Perhaps a companion if you will someone to keep one company when all they know is emptiness and being alone all the time. to have someone or something that can actually respond to conversation is great!

Hi

Here is some more informations about project Aiko.
Hopefully, it will give a better understanding of what I am trying to accomplish.


Here is my original abstract.

...Perhaps, it will control all devices in your home from cleaning your room to controlling your household appliances. I think intelligent dynamics will be required for the task. I would like to make an android that can be companion for human beings, especially for elderly people, which require help around their home. An android that can upload its memory to a central server with unlimited storage. The android might break down, but it can always download its memory from the central server to the new android again. By doing this, you can share a time's worth of memories and knowledge. In additional, an android can listen to complaints, share information like the weather.

Hi all.

I manage to get back the body in one piece.
I will have demo video of Aiko doing some BASIC houseworks within a few weeks. ;D

I just need to config the software to work with Aiko new body.
In additional, I will add more sensors.


In the meantime I have taken some pictures.

Do you refer to: "Other functionality would be an ability to massage your shoulders and neck" and related things? ;)

Not wishing to selfincriminate myself, regarding "and related things". I will plead the fifth. ;)

I am just struck by how lifelike "she" is, obviously some great thought went in to how "she" looked. Such thought and care over the features i am wondering if this is based on a wife or girlfriend? Sorry to deviate from the main topic.

Yes, Aiko will be able to massage your shoulders and neck.
Reason: I spent so much time in front of the monitor coding the AI logic. My neck and shoulders feel pain every single day. [:-'(]

She is beautiful and she looks like she is 11 years old! LOL.. If you put the same amount of care into her inner system as you have spent completing her body she will be terrific!!

Thanks for the update!

Hi

After many years, I finally finish it.
I haven:t put this on my website yet, because I need to do more testings.
However, for now I will it here for sneak preview.

This is the first generation prototype of Aiko's arm.

It has the ability to move similar to a human arm with our uniquely designed joints.
Most remarkably, Aiko’s arm can mimic physical sensation. Aiko can tell the difference between
being touched gently, being hit or grabbed, and will react accordingly.
The arm is currently being tested with the B.R.A.I.N.S software, and
will be incorporated into Aiko’s body once testing is completed.
Eventually, the touch sensation system will be integrated into all facets of Aiko’s skin and body.

In the future, this technology can be beneficial for people born with or who have undergone amputations.
This is the first step toward a life-like mechanical limb that has the ability
to feel physical sensation.
