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.
