DeepMind Acquires MuJoCo & Makes it Free

Google DeepMind has acquired the popular MuJoCo physics simulator. Deepmind has immediately made MuJoCo free for everyone and put forward plans to make the software open source.

MuJoCo being free lowers the barrier to AI research with simulators. When it fully becomes open source I expect we’ll quickly see some great new features and adoption.
