Formula One and AWS to create F1 ProAm DeepRacer event
Formula One has teamed up with Amazon Web Services (AWS), its official cloud and machine learning partner, to create a virtual event that will see professional racers compete against amateur developers from around the world.
The F1 ProAm DeepRacer event, which will run throughout the month of May, will be a one-off contest as part of the AWS DeepRacer League, a competition that sees developers build and train machine learning models that compete in monthly virtual races.
Formula One professionals set to compete in the event include Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo (pictured), Alfa Romeo F1 test driver and Formula Two racer Tatiana Calderon, and Rob Smedley, Formula One’s director of data systems who also acts as an AWS technical ambassador.
