The AWS DeepRacer platform brilliantly made Machine Learning approachable by gamifying the learning process. DeepRacer is a 1/18th scale autonomous racing car with an onboard computer, camera, and a growing list of sensors such as Lidar and stereoscopic vision. Introduced at the AWS re:Invent 2018 conference, the official DeepRacer league has over 1000 members across the globe. The Santa Cruz DeepRacer meetup group was started by a 2019 DeepRacer League winner from Santa Cruz. With a growing number of Central Coast locals interested in Machine Learning, the purpose of this meetup group is to build a community and explore the DeepRacer platform further. Events will include tutorials, knowledge sharing, and racing events on real tracks with the DeepRacer car.
It's DeepRacer Santa Cruz Race Day! Time to put your models to the test on a real race track. You've been training models, right? Fear not, we'll send a separate message to the group on that.
The location is tentatively going to be at The Wrigley Building which is on the West Side of Santa Cruz at 2801 Mission Street. We'll send out additional details as the date approaches.
We're super looking forward to this day, it's going to be a great event!
