2017 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce HoME: a Household Multimodal Environment for artificial agents to learn from vision, audio, semantics, physics, and interaction with objects and other agents, all within a realistic context  ...  We hope HoME better enables artificial agents to learn as humans do: in an interactive, multimodal, and richly contextualized setting.  ...  We further thank NVIDIA for donating a DGX-1 and Tesla K40 used in this work. Lastly, we thank for the acronym HoME.  ...
