Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the MIT-IBM Watson Artificial Intelligence (AI) Laboratory, and Harvard and Stanford universities developed the ThreeDWorld (TDW) platform to simulate high-fidelity audio and visual environments.

Said the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab's Chuang Gan, "We are trying to build a general-purpose simulation platform that mimics the interactive richness of the real world for a variety of AI applications."

TDW can produce photorealistic scenes and render audio in real time for compilation into audio-visual datasets, modified through interaction, and adapted for human and neural network learning and prediction tests.
