If you want to put your machine learning skills to the test Amazon has just announced an exciting and fun product called AWS DeepRacer. AWS DeepRacer is an autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning.
You use Amazon tools to build a machine learning model which you can test in a virtual environment. Then, when you’ve tested everything properly you can take your DeepRacer on a physical track and see how your coding holds up in real life.
The most fun part is that Amazon will launch a DeepRacer league where developers can compete head to head with other DeepRacer owners for points and glory.
