Notes: I worked with the MineRL team for 18 months. While with them, I helped them develop a code base for interfacing AI agents with Minecraft servers, and I worked on experiment design and the data collection pipeline. The MineRL team has yearly competitions for increasingly harder tasks in Minecraft.
