OpenAI's 'Gym' teaches machines how to run trial and error tests

#artificialintelligence

OpenAI announced its first product, OpenAI Gym, on Wednesday. OpenAI Gym is a toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms in different environments, according to the company. OpenAI is the nonprofit AI research company founded late last year with the goal of advancing digital intelligence without concerns about profit. The project touts investors like Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Infosys and AWS. OpenAI Gym is designed to be a proving ground for algorithms for reinforcement learning, which involves training machines to run trial and error tests.


Elon Musk Opens 1 Billion "Robot Gym" for Artificial Intelligence Training

#artificialintelligence

The space and renewable energy tycoon has launched yet another pioneer non-profit project which can change the world of robotics today. Elon Musk developed a 1 billion-program "Robot Gym" to train artificial intelligence. He says he wanted the robots to be as versatile as humans when it comes to thinking. Our reinforcement learning toolkit, OpenAI Gym, is now in public beta: https://t.co/8fMRLjSJQb. Tesla's CEO, together with Sam Altman, created the artificial intelligence non-profit research company.


How to train your robots: Elon Musk's new AI gym

There's a new high-tech gym in the works, but it has nothing to do with toning muscles. Elon Musk, the tech-loving chief executive of both Tesla and SpaceX, is building an open-source "gym" for computer programmers to train their robots, Sharon Gaudin reported for ComputerWorld. Developers can share their findings on artificial intelligence (AI) systems as they work out. "Nothing beats a competitive environment to motivate developers," said Patrick Moorhead, an analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, to ComputerWorld. Championing AI marks part of a calculated strategy by Mr. Musk, who has said AI could represent humanity's "biggest existential threat" because it could prove destructive in the wrong hands or simply go astray on its own.

Elon Musk builds 'gym' to train AIs

#artificialintelligence

Tesla and SpaceX owner Elon Musk, is now establishing an artificial intelligence'gym' for developers to train their AI systems through a series of games and challenges. Under Musk's 1 billion non-profit OpenAI initiative, the gym is now available as open source code and provides'environments' for developers to test their new AI bots. This includes 59 Atari games including the popular Alien, Air Raid, Asteroids and Pac-Man. The results from these test environments will be compiled by OpenAI into a list of the top performing systems. Instead of ranking the AIs by high scores, the systems will be judged on versatility.
