Researchers showed Minedojo 730,000 Minecraft videos on YouTube with transcription of more than 2.2 billion words, 7,000 extracted web pages from the Minecraft wiki, and 340,000 Reddit posts and 6.6 million Reddit comments describing Minecraft gameplay to train the bot to play Minecraft.

Based on this information, the researchers developed MineClip, a custom transformer model that connects video clips to specific Minecraft in-game actions.

As a result, using high-level natural language, someone can tell the Minedojo agent, “find a desert pyramid” or “build a portal to and enter the nether,” and Minedojo will run a series of steps required for this to happen in the game.

On its official website, you can see examples of Minedojo in action, and the code for Minedojo and MineClip is available on GitHub.
