Minecraft and Reinforcement Learning

Lars Gregori

Project Malmo was initiated by Microsoft Research as a platform to use Minecraft as an AI testing framework. It’s not about playing the game, it’s about using Minecraft as an experimental AI platform.

In my talk I’ll take a look into reinforcement learning and how to solve individual problems with (deep) reinforcement learning, Minecraft, and project Malmo.

Required audience experience

Programming skills (in Python) are an advantage, but not mandatory

Objective of the talk

The participant will learn the basics of reinforcement learning. In addition, he gets an overview of Project Malmo and concrete examples of reinforcement learning.
