Deep Dive into Machine Learning with AWS DeepRacer

We are very excited to partner with AWS for our fall technical workshop, Deep Dive into Machine Learning with AWS DeepRacer. In this workshop, we invited Solutions Architects at AWS to demonstrate the role of reinforcement learning (RL) in autonomous race cars, and how anyone can train, evaluate, and tune RL models with the AWS DeepRacer online simulator. In addition, we will also introduce AWS Educate, and how you can benefit from their skill training and career platform.

This workshop is intended to give students from all backgrounds an interesting and fun way to get started with RL and learn the basics of machine learning.

For those who missed the event or would like to review the content again, AWS has kindly provided us pre-recorded videos on the same topics covered in the live event. Feel free to learn about AWS Educate and AWS Deep Racer by watching the videos.
