ALFWorld

Aligning Text and Embodied Environments for Interactive Learning
Mohit Shridhar, Xingdi (Eric) Yuan, Marc-Alexandre Côté,
Yonatan Bisk, Adam Trischler, Matthew Hausknecht
ICLR 2021

ALFWorld contains interactive TextWorld environments (Côté et. al) that parallel embodied worlds in the ALFRED dataset (Shridhar et. al). The aligned environments allow agents to reason and learn high-level policies in an abstract space before solving embodied tasks through low-level actuation.

For the latest updates, see: alfworld.github.io

Quickstart

Install with pip (python3.6 or higher):

$ pip install https://github.com/MarcCote/downward/archive/faster_replan.zip
$ pip install https://github.com/MarcCote/TextWorld/archive/handcoded_expert_integration.zip
$ pip install alfworld

Download PDDL & Game files and pre-trained MaskRCNN detector:

$ export ALFWORLD_DATA=<storage_path>
$ alfworld-download

Use --extra to download pre-trained checkpoints and seq2seq data.

Play a Textworld game:

$ alfworld-play-tw

Play an Embodied-World (THOR) game:

$ alfworld-play-thor

Get started with a random agent:

import numpy as np
import alfworld.agents.environment as environment
import alfworld.agents.modules.generic as generic

# load config
config = generic.load_config()
env_type = config['env']['type'] # 'AlfredTWEnv' or 'AlfredThorEnv' or 'AlfredHybrid'

# setup environment
env = getattr(environment, env_type)(config, train_eval='train')
env = env.init_env(batch_size=1)

# interact
obs, info = env.reset()
while True:
    # get random actions from admissible 'valid' commands (not available for AlfredThorEnv)
    admissible_commands = list(info['admissible_commands']) # note: BUTLER generates commands word-by-word without using admissible_commands
    random_actions = [np.random.choice(admissible_commands[0])]

    # step
    obs, scores, dones, infos = env.step(random_actions)
    print("Action: {}, Obs: {}".format(random_actions[0], obs[0]))

Run python <script>.py configs/base_config.yaml

Install Source

Installing from source is recommended for development.

Clone repo:

$ git clone https://github.com/alfworld/alfworld.git alfworld

Install requirements:

# Note: Requires python 3.6 or higher
$ virtualenv -p $(which python3.6) --system-site-packages alfworld_env # or whichever package manager you prefer
$ source alfworld_env/bin/activate

$ pip install --upgrade pip
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

$ cd alfworld
$ python setup.py develop

Download PDDL & Game Files and pre-trained MaskRCNN detector:

$ export ALFWORLD_DATA=<storage_path>
$ python scripts/alfworld-download

Use --extra to download pre-trained checkpoints and seq2seq data.

Train models:

$ python scripts/train_dagger.py configs/base_config.yaml

Play around with TextWorld and THOR demos.

More Info

  • Data: PDDL, Game Files, Pre-trained Agents. Generating PDDL states and detection training images.
  • Agents: Training and evaluating TextDAgger, TextDQN, VisionDAgger agents.
  • Explore: Play around with ALFWorld TextWorld and THOR environments.

Prerequisites

  • Python 3.6
  • PyTorch 1.2.0
  • Torchvision 0.4.0
  • AI2THOR 2.1.0

See requirements.txt for all prerequisites

Hardware

Tested on:

  • GPU - GTX 1080 Ti (12GB)
  • CPU - Intel Xeon (Quad Core)
  • RAM - 16GB
  • OS - Ubuntu 16.04

Docker Setup

Install Docker and NVIDIA Docker.

Modify docker_build.py and docker_run.py to your needs.

Build

Build the image:

$ python docker/docker_build.py

Run (Local)

For local machines:

$ python docker/docker_run.py

  source ~/alfworld_env/bin/activate
  cd ~/alfworld

Run (Headless)

For headless VMs and Cloud-Instances:

$ python docker/docker_run.py --headless

  # inside docker
  tmux new -s startx  # start a new tmux session

  # start nvidia-xconfig
  sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --use-display-device=None --virtual=1280x1024

  # start X server on DISPLAY 0
  # single X server should be sufficient for multiple instances of THOR
  sudo python ~/alfworld/docker/startx.py 0  # if this throws errors e.g "(EE) Server terminated with error (1)" or "(EE) already running ..." try a display > 0

  # detach from tmux shell
  # Ctrl+b then d

  # source env
  source ~/alfworld_env/bin/activate

  # set DISPLAY variable to match X server
  export DISPLAY=:0

  # check THOR
  python ~/alfworld/docker/check_thor.py

  ###############
  ## (300, 300, 3)
  ## Everything works!!!

You might have to modify X_DISPLAY in gen/constants.py depending on which display you use.

Cloud Instance

ALFWorld can be setup on headless machines like AWS or GoogleCloud instances. The main requirement is that you have access to a GPU machine that supports OpenGL rendering. Run startx.py in a tmux shell:

# start tmux session
$ tmux new -s startx

# start X server on DISPLAY 0
# single X server should be sufficient for multiple instances of THOR
$ sudo python ~/alfworld/scripts/startx.py 0  # if this throws errors e.g "(EE) Server terminated with error (1)" or "(EE) already running ..." try a display > 0

# detach from tmux shell
# Ctrl+b then d

# set DISPLAY variable to match X server
$ export DISPLAY=:0

# check THOR
$ python ~/alfworld/docker/check_thor.py

###############
## (300, 300, 3)
## Everything works!!!

You might have to modify X_DISPLAY in gen/constants.py depending on which display you use.
