Officially launched in December, this research group has a billion dollars in funding from InfoSys, Amazon Web Services, and several private donors. The reason we’re talking about OpenAI today is they just released the public beta of OpenAI Gym. This toolkit is used to develop and compare reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms, a cornerstone of modern machine learning research.…
