Learning to play StarCraft, the next step towards AGI

This talk will discuss the problem of using the game of StarCraft (and its successor StarCraft II) as a research environment for AI. The presentation will consist of two main parts:

• Discussion of the recent work done by Facebook AI Research on StarCraft micromanagement tasks [1] and the soon to be released TorchCraft library [2].

• Keynote on StarCraft as a testbed for general artificial intelligence, in which I will address the numerous challenges posed by this game, from the perspective of an AI researcher and former professional StarCraft player.

Main Reading Materials:

• [1] Episodic Exploration for Deep Deterministic Policies for StarCraft Micromanagement -

Additional Reading Materials:

[2] TorchCraft: a Library for Machine Learning Research on Real-Time Strategy Games (white paper) -

• [3] A Survey of Real-Time Strategy Game AI Research and Competition in StarCraft -

      Salut Razvan,

      Codul asociat articolului principal inca nu a fost facut public de FAIR (dar urmeaza), insa acum doua zile au pus pe Github codul pentru framework-ul TorchCraft [1].


      Numai bine,
