Many recent advances in deep reinforcement learning and artificial intelligence have stemmed from video games. In this session, we’ll explore a brief history of this relationship and how Unity is pushing the boundaries of AI research with the Obstacle Tower Challenge and Animal-AI Olympics Competition. We'll also show how Unity is leveraging cutting-edge research to solve gaming's biggest challenges with the Unity Machine Learning Agents Toolkit, one of the most popular open source toolkits for deep learning.
