Virtual-to-Real Learning


What is the real world look like for drones? We can see from the slide. Prof. Lai will talk about applications using deep reinforcement learning.

Nowadays, big companies and researchers start developing many virtual environments Industry:

  • Microsoft: Project Malmo (Minecraft), AirSim
  • Facebook: House3D, HoME
  • DeepMind: DeepMind Lab
  • Intel: MINOS
  • Unity: Unity AI

In Academia also there are a couple famous example.

  • OpenAI Gym
  • Deep GTA V (DeepDrive)
  • AI2-THOR, Sim4CV, UnrealCV, Stanford 3D, VizDoom

From the example above, there seems a need for companies or researchers to develop or improve virtual environments more. Thus, an open-source real-world simulator becomes important. Prof. Lai will continue to introduce VIVID: Virtual Environment for Visual Deep Learning.
