Introducing Universe

Wow. OpenAI is living up to the hype in its first year. Its most recent release, Universe, is an environment that allows "an AI agent to use a computer like a human does: by looking at screen pixels and operating a virtual keyboard and mouse. We must train AI systems on the full range of tasks we expect them to solve, and Universe lets us train a single agent on any task a human can complete with a computer."

This is a very directed step by OpenAI towards Artificial General Intelligence: "If we are to make progress towards generally intelligent agents, we must allow them to experience a wide repertoire of tasks so they can develop world knowledge and problem solving strategies that can be efficiently reused in a new task."
