Project Description

We are seeking computer science undergraduates with strong programming skills passionate about game development. We are interested in designing and developing a computer game environment for training AI agents that operate in a complex environment. The huge progress in AI/ML/RL methods has been driven by environments such as OpenAI Gym. However, these environments are limited to relatively simple tasks. We are planning to develop a new game platform that would allow us to construct next-generation intelligent agents.


An ideal candidate will have experience in building computer video games and is proficient in C++ and Python programming. Interests in AI/ML are also desired but are not necessary.
