Provide a fun way to experience machine learning

Events start with a hands-on machine learning workshop led by an AWS expert that helps attendees learn the basics of machine learning, start training reinforcement learning models, and test them in an exciting, autonomous car racing experience.

Encourage experimentation and growth

Attendees can test their newfound skills in either a virtual or in-person event format by experimenting with multiple sensor inputs, the latest reinforcement learning algorithms, neural network configurations and simulation to-real domain transfer methods. 

Foster team building and competition

AWS DeepRacer events provide an opportunity for attendees to compete for prizes and hone their machine learning skills, online or in-person, while sharing ideas and insights on how to succeed.
