Public beta of toolkit for developing machine learning for robots and games released

Make a three-dimensional bipedal robot walk forward as fast as possible, without falling over (credit: OpenAI Gym) OpenAI (a non-profit AI research company sponsored by Elon Musk and others) has released the public beta of OpenAI Gym, a toolkit for developing and comparing algorithms for reinforcement learning (RL), a type of machine learning. OpenAI Gym consists of a growing suite of environments (from simulated robots to Atari games), and a site for comparing and reproducing results. OpenAI Gym is compatible with algorithms written in any framework, such as Tensorflow and Theano. The environments are initially written in Python (other languages planned). If you’d like to dive in right away, you can work through a tutorial, and you help out while learning by reproducing a result. What is reinforcement learning? Reinforcement learning (RL) is the subfield of machine learning concerned with decision making and motor…
