Start your engines
bring your laptop, and get ready for a day of machine learning. You'll get hands-on with a fully autonomous 1/8th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning and a 3D racing simulator that you create...and will physically race at the end of the day.

About the day

Whether you are new to machine learning or ready to build on your existing skills, this class will help you get ready to race. After the class, you’ll be familiar with the basics of reinforcement learning (a branch of machine learning that’s ideal for training autonomous vehicles) and AWS DeepRacer…and you’ll be ready to hit the track!

This course is designed to give you hands-on experience with reinforcement learning (RL) by helping you build, train and deploy models in AWS DeepRacer so you can compete at the end of the day (and you can also join the official AWS DeepRacer League afterwards!).

The day starts off by orienting you to AWS DeepRacer before diving into RL. You’ll have several opportunities to build, train, and evaluate your own RL models, and then deploy them to the physical car.

By the end of the course, you’ll have your own optimized RL model that you can enter into a live racing competition with your fellow classmates at the end of the day!
