PLAICraft Soft Launch

We are proud to announce that UBC’s Behavioral Research Ethics Board has issued a certificate of approval under the minimal risk category for us to publicly release PLAICraft, a “free Minecraft in the cloud” AI research data collection project.  Please consider contributing by visiting  Or wait and use your own Minecraft client to check out our growing research contributor community directly on the free Minecraft server

Our audacious but achievable goal is to collection 25,000 hours of multiplayer Minecraft gameplay and then to use this data to train AGI-like agents that can respond sensibly to video and audio perceptual environments.
