This is the event of the year for all cloud enthusiastic people, who are looking for the latest AWS news and inspiration for the future. This year the event is organized 2nd to 6th of December in Las Vegas, and Cybercom will be there too!
Our Machine Learning Maker Jouni Luoma in the DeepRacer Finals
Jouni represents all the Nordic countries in the DeepRacer Finals in Vegas. He won the Nordics DeepRacer League in Stockholm in the Spring, and is one of the finalists in Las Vegas. It's going to be a tough competition, and we are going to boost Jouni to the podium!
Jouni commented after the Stockholm race:
“The race was really exciting, and the competition was tough. The excitement lasted until the final minute of the race as 3 persons of top5 were last developers on track and I had done my last run already before them. Now I am looking forward to compete in the DeepRacer League Finals in re:Invent 2019 coming December. For that race I still need to continue developing the model, as the competition will be fierce“.
What is a DeepRacer?
AWS DeepRacer is a 1/18th scale race car which you can start training with reinforcement learning (RL). RL is an advanced machine learning (ML) technique which takes a very different approach to training models than other machine learning methods. Its super power is that it learns very complex behaviours without requiring any labelled training data and can make short term decisions while optimizing for a longer-term goal.
Meet us at re:Invent
If you are planning a trip to re:Invent, join us for a discussion! We'll arrange some activities during the week, so if you're interested to hear more about DeepRacer or if you would like to share your insights with us before, during or after the event, please contact our team: Kimmo, Magnus, Lasse or Tony.
We are looking for to meet many cloud oriented people in Las Vegas - See you there!
