How do self-driving cars get around on their own? There’s a lot to it. But a key element is image recognition.
Neural networks identify patterns in data, which is fed to the machine learning algorithms. In this case, that data includes images from cameras on self-driving cars from which the neural network learns to identify traffic lights, trees, curbs, pedestrians, street signs and other parts of any given driving environment.
What does this have to do with you? Well that’s what you are here for — machine learning up a self-driving car to recognise street signs + more!
First things first!

In addition to your laptop (or the on you have arranged to borrow from us), have a pen and paper handy. We’ll need you to download one or two things too but we can talk about those bits on Tuesday.
We will share the slides & information from the sessions
in the dropbox folder below.
