IsisWorld: An Open Source Commonsense Simulator for AI Researchers

A metareasoning problem involves three parts: 1) a set of concrete problem domains; 2) reasoners to reason about the problems; and, 3) metareasoners to reason about the reasoners. We believe that the metareasoning community would benefit from agreeing on the first two problems. To support this kind of collaboration, we offer an open source 3D simulator containing everyday, commonsense problems that take place in kitchens. This paper presents several arguments for using a simulator to solve commonsense problems. The paper concludes by describing future work in simulator-based unified generative benchmarks for AI.
