Creator of Unity Technologies, the world’s leading real-time 3D development platform, announced today its collaboration with DeepMind, the world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) research, that will enable the development of virtual environments and tasks in support of the company’s fundamental AI research program.

Demis Hassabis, co-founder and CEO of DeepMind, said: “Games and simulations have been a core part of DeepMind’s research programme from the very beginning and this approach has already led to significant breakthroughs in AI research. As a former video game designer myself, I couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating with Unity, creating virtual environments for developing and testing the kind of smart, flexible algorithms we need to tackle real-world problems.”
