AWS Michigan January Meetup

January 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

From Zero to Machine Learning in 45 Minutes – AI, ML, and AWS DeepRacer


Doors open at 6 p.m. for those wishing to come earlier and network before the talk which starts at 6:30 p.m. We ask that if you do plan on attending, please register, so we have an accurate headcount. Food, soft drinks, and craft brews will be provided; we hope to see you there!
Have you heard of the catchphrases Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning? So is this yet another theoretical and boring lecture on how cool all this is? …Not Really!

During this session, I will take you on a journey of learning about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Reinforcement Machine Learning and AWS (Amazon Web Services) DeepRacer. In the end you will walk away with understanding of different types of Machine Learning and how it’s implemented in the industry.

You will also be able to quickly and easily – build, train and evaluate your own Reinforcement Machine Learning Model using AWS (Amazon Web Services) and simple Python code. You will see your virtual car model learn, adapt and improve – all in real time as it navigates itself around a virtual race track.
