How to Control a Race Car (with Machine Learning)

LLNL featured a machine learning competition where participants were required to train an autonomous race car with reinforcement learning algorithms — see how they stepped up to the challenge.

“Everyone involved found it to be a rewarding experience, especially those who were exploring ML for the first time," said Valerie Noble , LLNL’s deputy CIO for cloud transformation. "The hackathon exemplifies our creative and innovative culture by providing opportunities for our staff to step outside their boxes and discover new possibilities. One of the Lab’s greatest strengths is the diversity of opportunity with the ability for an employee to pivot their career in a completely different direction at any time.”
