Deep Racer 2023

Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence through gamified learning by developing your autonomous racing car.

The Competition Final : 06th September 2023
Prize Giving : 07th September 2023

Welcome to a virtual autonomous racing league, driven by Machine Learning (ML). It’s time to skill yourself in ML and Reinforcement Learning (RL). Developers of all skill levels can get hands on with machine learning through a cloud-based 3D racing simulator. Build your ML models, hit the tracks virtually, and race to win big.

The POLYCC Deep Racer is organized in conjunction with eDOLA award ceremony that celebrates the best of TVET digital content and creation efforts by the Malaysian Polytechnic and community college students

What is AWS DeepRacer?

AWS DeepRacer gives you an interesting and fun way to get started with reinforcement learning (RL). RL is an advanced machine learning (ML) technique that takes a very different approach to training models than other machine learning methods.


A hands-on way to experience ML

Events start with a hands-on machine learning workshop led by an AWS expert that helps attendees learn the basics of machine learning, start training reinforcement learning models, and test them in an exciting, autonomous car racing experience.

Encourage experimentation and growth

Attendees can test their newfound skills in either a virtual or in-person event format by experimenting with multiple sensor inputs, the latest reinforcement learning algorithms, neural network configurations and simulation to-real domain transfer methods.

Foster team building and competition

AWS DeepRacer events provide an opportunity for attendees to compete for prizes and hone their machine learning skills, online or in-person, while sharing ideas and insights on how to succeed.
