Companion body and soul from first principles

hello community, i’m new here - thought i’d quickly share what’s been on my mind.

i’m looking to design and build a companion from first principles, utilising the best in the world of atoms and the world of bits. so a body that would utilise the best in soft robotics and the best in machine learning, computer vision, speech synthesis etc coupled with psychological best practices so as to not evolve into the doomed scenario shown in futurama.

more info to come but in the meantime - anyone interested in being involved in such an approach, give me a shout. :bowing_man:t5:‍♂
