Capture the Flag: the Emergence of Complex Cooerperative Agents
Now, through new developments in reinforcement learning, our agents have achieved human-level performance in Quake III Arena Capture the Flag, a complex multi-agent environment and one of the canonical 3D first-person multiplayer games.
Learning Task-Oriented Grasping for Tool Manipulation from Simulated Self-Supervision
In this paper, we propose the Task-Oriented Grasping Network to jointly optimize both task-oriented grasping of a tool and the manipulation policy for that tool. The training process of the model is based on largescale simulated self-supervision with procedurally generated tool objects.
