Go Deepracer Go! & EMR Usage and Tips

Location image of event venue


Dabble in a little machine learning with Jim Watkins from Anexinet as he demos AWS DeepRacer. Amazon bills DeepRacer as a fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning. AWS has recently unveiled their Machine Learning Specialty certification and I know some of you have placed an interest in pursuing it.

We've added a second topic for the evening... Join Mike Reca, Data engineer from Capital One, as he walks you through some examples of how to use EMR and give you some pointers for how best to leverage its capabilities. Big thanks to the folks at Capital One for offering up to present as well!

Feel free to join in the conversation and bring your studies into the room and share your knowledge with all!

James Watkins, Cloud Architect, Anexinet
