Welcome to the Minecraft Assistant project!

In this project, you will play Minecraft with a bot that is there to help you. Use the in-game chat to talk to the bot. Tell it where to go. Tell it what to do. Try to build something with its help.

For this project, you are asked to interact with the bot for 10 minutes. You may ask it to do anything you'd like. Explore what the bot can and cannot do.

The bot may ask you questions so it can learn over time. Please try to answer the questions it asks you.

When you are done, you will be asked to fill out a quick survey to help improve the bot.

To Proceed

  1. Please make sure you have downloaded Minecraft and have a valid license. Follow the instructions here to change your version to 1.12

  4. Play with the bot for 10 minutes. When you are done, exit Minecraft or press Escape > Disconnect.

Facebook AI Research will process the log of your game actions and in-game chats in accordance with our Data Policy.

This may involve public disclosure of the log as part of a research paper or data set. We will take measures to remove any information that directly identifies you before doing so, but cannot guarantee that the logs will be completely anonymous.
