Autonomous Vehicles: The Answer to Our Growing Traffic Woes

Alexandre Bayen, Director for the Institute for Transportation Studies and the Liao-Cho Professor of Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, has been spearheading research into traffic abatement since 2004. At the root of Bayen’s work is Deep Reinforcement Learning (or Deep RL). Recent developments in Deep RL algorithms, coupled with the ease of AWS machine learning solutions, has led to significant advancement in the research.
