The vehicle is rewarded for staying on the track, avoiding obstacles and more, helping the auto to learn to drive more accurately over time. The fully autonomous race auto uses reinforcement learning models from SageMaker and allows the developers to race against each other for prizes in their own DeepRacer League.
The designers of DeepRacer have equipped the autonomous vehicle with an artificial intelligence (AI) technique called reinforcement learning, which was inspired by how animals learn from responses to their behavior. Also, it is equally hard to find people who know how to build right and ethical ML models and train, tune and deploy those. The company has announced at their re-invent cloud conference in Las Vegas. With reinforcement learning's steep learning curve and blockers for adoption, AWS's introduction of the AWS DeepRacer and the DeepRacer League is one more step in AWS's mission of putting machine learning and reinforcement learning into the hands of everyday developers.
"This is still not our focus, although people want us to make more of these things". AWS RoboMaker connects the Robot Operating System to AWS' machine learning, monitoring and analytics services so robots can "stream data, navigate, communicate, comprehend and learn", the company said in its overview.
Amazon SageMaker RL addresses the complexity of reinforcement learning, which uses an algorithm achieve a complex goal that learns from right and wrong decisions as it explores its environment, usually in a simulator. The whole experience was good fun, and I haven't even begun to scratch the surface in terms of the service's capabilities.
