OpenAI Releases AI Platform Universe

OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research company, allows the AIs to be loose in their own Universe, where they will be able to learn to play games, interact with websites, and use apps.
 
The company states,
 
“We're releasing Universe, a software platform for measuring and training an AI's general intelligence across the world's supply of games, websites and other applications.”
 
Universe is the name of OpenAl’s tool which is used for training AIs on "any task a human can complete with a computer." By going on to use a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) remote desktop, it allows AI to control the game or app by using the virtual keyboard and mouse, and it also allows you to see the output by analyzing the pixels display which is available on the screen. It is fundamentally an interface to the company’s Gym toolkit so as to develop reinforcement algorithms, which is a machine learning system.
 
The company informs us  that the source code for Universe is now available on GitHub, and it includes interfaces to numerous online environments.
 
Along with this, there is the availability of simple browser tasks such as clicking buttons, or copying as well as pasting the items, however, there are also more complex environments, like the video game Grand Theft Auto V.
 
The company goes on to state,
 
“Our goal is to develop a single AI agent that can flexibly apply its past experience on Universe environments to quickly master unfamiliar, difficult environments, which would be a major step towards general intelligence. There are many ways to help: giving us permission on your games, training agents across Universe tasks, (soon) integrating new games, or (soon) playing the games.”
