OpenAI Creates a Gym to Train Your AI

Open AI, a non-profit artificial intelligence research company backed by Elon Musk, launched a toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms.

OpenAI Gym is a suite of environments that include simulated robotic tasks and Atari games as well as a website for people to post their results and share code.

OpenAI researcher John Schulman shared some details about his organization, why reinforcement learning is important and how the OpenAI Gym will make it easier for AI researchers to design, iterate and improve their next generation applications.
