We are thrilled to announce that Nicole Lee, an active member of the AWS DeepRacer Student League, has won the prestigious $40,000 Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship and Internship!
Nicole has been an enthusiastic participant in the AWS DeepRacer program since her sophomore year in high school. During her time in the program, she has developed a passion for artificial intelligence and machine learning, and has been dedicated to honing her skills in these areas. She has experimented with different reward functions, collaborated with her peers to find the most efficient solutions, and competed against fellow students to achieve the fastest lap times.
I want to Introduce an article written by my former student, Nicole Lee, whose commitment to learning during the pandemic is truly exceptional. Like many students around the world, Nicole was forced to learn from home as schools shut their doors. However, she did not let this setback hinder her passion for knowledge. In fact, she used this time to focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and sought out various learning resources to expand her knowledge on the topic. Nicole’s dedication to her studies and her community is commendable. She demonstrates curiosity, initiative, and excellent problem-solving skills, always following through and completing tasks to the best of her abilities. In this article, Nicole shares her insights on the impact of AI on the future of various industries and how individuals can prepare themselves for the inevitable changes that are to come.
Building a DeepRacer track can be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are some things to consider before getting started:
Figure out the amount of space that you have.
Figure out how often you are going to race.
Figure out if you want to build a DeepRacer signature track (tracks in the console).
Consider building a custom track for your surroundings.
Building a signature DeepRacer track takes up the most space and in most cases, you will not be able to dedicate that amount of real estate to keep it up day in and day out. Building your own track personalized to your space is an efficient option and usually, you can have it up year-round.
