AWS Summit Berlin
International Convention Centre, Cape Town | July 11, 2019

The world’s first global autonomous racing league, open to anyone

The AWS DeepRacer League will be rolling into the AWS Summit Cape Town. You can get hands-on with reinforcement learning and build a model (or bring your own), then compete by submitting your model to the virtual leaderboard for the Summit. The top 10 places on the leaderboard will compete in live races on the track, using AWS DeepRacer. Summit winners and top points scorers across the races will qualify and advance to the AWS DeepRacer Championship Cup.
