Deep Reinforcement Learning in Gaming

Many of the recent advances in deep reinforcement learning have stemmed from video games. In this session, we’ll explore a brief history of this relationship. We’ll also show how Unity, the world’s leading game engine, is driving the boundaries of new AI research through the Obstacle Tower Challenge. And how we are leveraging cutting edge research to solve gaming’s biggest challenges through the Unity Machine Learning Agents Toolkit (one of the most popular open source toolkits for deep learning)
