Machine learning for kids
The growth of artificial intelligence and machine learning will create millions of new jobs over the next few years. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) specialists are in the most "in demand" employees across all industries, according to the World Economic Forum's new Future of Jobs report, 2020, yet there are only a few hundred thousand engineers trained in AI and ML worldwide. As more organizations embrace digital transformation by moving to the cloud to make machine learning a reality, they’re using creative training initiatives to close the machine learning skills gap. Capital One’s AWS DeepRacer League is one excellent example of this.
How AWS DeepRacer worksAWS DeepRacer provides an interesting and fun way to get started with machine learning through a cloud-based 3D racing simulator and a fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning.
With AWS DeepRacer, individuals train reinforcement learning models in a simulation environment via the AWS DeepRacer console to race around a virtual track. The reinforcement learning models can also be deployed to a physical AWS DeepRacer race car, where it can race on a physical track for prizes—like a trip to compete in the AWS DeepRacer League Championship Cup at the annual AWS re:Invent conference.
