We present TorchCraft, an open-source library that enables deep learning research on Real-Time Strategy (RTS) games such as StarCraft: Brood War, by making it easier to control these games from a machine learning framework, here Torch [9]. This white paper argues for using RTS games as a benchmark for AI research, and describes the design and components of TorchCraft.
