Learn to Move: Walk Around

Welcome to the Learn to Move: Walk Around challenge, one of the official challenges in the NeurIPS 2019 Competition Track. Your task is to develop a controller for a physiologically plausible 3D human model to walk or run following velocity commands with minimum effort. You are provided with a human musculoskeletal model and a physics-based simulation environment, OpenSim. There will be three tracks: 1) Best performance, 2) Novel ML solution, and 3) Novel biomechanical solution, where all the winners of each track will be awarded.
