Unity Obstacle Tower Challenge

Episode in evaluation ends prematurely

About 1 year ago

My latest evaluation yielded this:

  • Episode-5
    • State: Episode Complete :tada:
    • Floor Number: 2
    • Reward: 2.400
    • Steps: 649

I find this rich, considering that there is no way to die on the third floor without running out of time, and an agent starts out with 3000 frames of time even if they pick up no time orbs. Clearly, there is some bug in the environment or the evaluation.

Anyway, I just resubmitted and will hopefully not hit this bug again.

Is the new v2.2 used for scoring?

Same issue here, stuck on generating video. Maybe that feature should simply be removed until it can be implemented reliably.

UnityTimeOutException in evaluation

Over 1 year ago

Spoke too soon. Just did another submission and got another timeout after 998s seconds (my timeout was set to 900). Must be non-deterministic.

@mohanty looks like your suggestion worked! Submission runs now.

I see this stack trace when I try to submit an agent that worked previously:

I am definitely using v2.1 of the environment. Not sure what’s going on, but this happened several submissions in a row, and I see that nobody else has successfully submitted in a few days.

Track submissions to the leaderboard

Over 1 year ago

I created a script that tracks new submissions to the leaderboard and logs them to the console. Watch as people gradually all realize they can submit the Rainbow baseline. xD

import itertools
import time

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import requests

BASE_URL = 'https://www.aicrowd.com/challenges/unity-obstacle-tower-challenge/leaderboards'


def main():
    board = fetch_leaderboard()
    while True:
        time.sleep(60 * 5)
        new_board = fetch_leaderboard()
        print_diffs(board, new_board)
        board = new_board


def print_diffs(old, new):
    for k, v in new.items():
        if k not in old:
            print('new submission: %s -> %f' % (k, v))
        elif old[k] != v:
            print('new submission: %s -> %f (old: %f)' % (k, v, old[k]))
    for k, v in old.items():
        if k not in new:
            print('deleted submission: %s -> %f' % (k, v))


def fetch_leaderboard():
    result = {}
    for page in itertools.count():
        sub_result = fetch_leaderboard_page(page)
        if not len(sub_result):
            break
        result.update(sub_result)
    return result


def fetch_leaderboard_page(page):
    url = '%s?page=%d' % (BASE_URL, page)
    response = requests.get(url)
    data = response.text
    soup = BeautifulSoup(data, 'html.parser')
    table = soup.find('table', {'class': 'table-leaderboard'})
    result = {}
    for row in table.find('tbody').find_all('tr'):
        columns = row.find_all('td')
        result[columns[2].get_text().strip()] = float(columns[4].get_text().strip())
    return result


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

Do you mind or is it allowed to open source your competition code?

Over 1 year ago

I’ll open source it once the competition ends

Programming is fun.
