DeepMind has released StreetLearn, an interactive environment and dataset consisting of 114,000 panoramic images from Google Street View, to advance the development of AI systems that can navigate using visual cues instead of maps. The dataset includes images from both New York City and Pittsburgh, and DeepMind has created several tasks to test the ability of AI agents, including a courier task that challenges AI agents to travel to a randomly chosen location.
