An AI Was Trained To Play Minecraft With 70,000 Hours Of YouTube Videos

OpenAI, the artificial intelligence research organization founded by Elon Musk, has trained an AI to play Minecraft almost as well as humans.

It could also perform other complex activities such as swimming, hunting, and eating. The AI could even do “pillar jumping” which involves keeping yourself in the air by repeatedly jumping and placing a block underneath yourself.
