Project Description

Multi-agent collaboration is an important research problem. We provide a realistic environment for studying the multi-agent collaboration problem (http://virtual-home.org/). In our environment, you can mimic the human world and design agents with different skills, preferences, goals, etc. You can also ask the agents to help you prepare a meal, clean the room, open TV, etc.. We are developing methods to let agents behave like real humans. There are several interesting research topics ongoing, such as multi-agent communication, human-robot interaction, multi-agent social intelligence, etc. You can find our recent work at http://virtual-home.org/.

Pre-requisites

Experience with Pytorch or Tensorflow. Experience with RL. Have enough time on the project every week.
