Invitation: AWS Innovate AI/ML Online Conference 19th Feb 2020 & DeepRacer Challenge February 2020

While the challenge is already taking place and some contestants have reached pretty spectacular results, I would like to invite you to still take part. You have time till the end of February and can win up to $1500 AWS Credits!

It’s a bit complicated to explain and much easier to check on the conference page – scroll to “Conference Time” to see your local hours.

Talks will be mainly in English, but some tracks will be also in Korean, Mandarin, Bahasa Indonesia, Spanish and Portugese.
