Instructions, Abstraction, and Theory-of-Mind

This talk focuses on an overview of our recent environments and benchmarks: ALFRED and ALFWorld for instruction following in embodied and abstract action spaces. The goal is to help move the community towards building agents that connect language to action and understand abstract plans. As we move towards systems which interact with the world, we also need to think about how they interact with other agents. I close with a discussion of our recent ICML paper on Theory-of-Mind agents.
