Neural network racing cars around a track

During Christmas of 2019 I got curious about machine learning so I put together an experiment. I wanted to see how well ML could drive a car around a racing track. I made a video of the application running and put it on YouTube, and it got quite some attention!

2.5 millions views… Just wow…

I kind of got a job offer or two as a result 😉 and the video also got the attention of Google’s AI guru David Ha who posted about it on LinkedIn! Lots of people had questions about it, how it worked, about the ML algorithm, the sourcecode availability.. and honestly I was a bit overwhelmed and I haven’t really taken the time to answer them.

So what else is up? I started another machine learning project which IMO is a lot cooler… 😉 but as usual, real life intervened with work and obligations, so that’s currently in limbo. If/when something gets done, I’ll post something on the YouTube channel…

The current situation, January 2020

Well I finally got nebol.se up and running again after some issues with Traefik and SSL certs. I think I’ve figured it out now.

I removed the front blog, instead it redirects directly here to the main blog.

I’ve been looking through the blog. Most of it is horribly outdated, incomplete or broken. And it’s just not a priority to fix any of that right now. And there’s not much more to say about that.

Om bloggning…

Jag måste erkänna; jag har blivit förtjust i bloggandet. Efter att länge ha varit skeptiskt inställd till bloggandet ser jag det nu som ett utmärkt sätt att publicera text på. Ja, det är fortfarande inget annat än ett buzzword för något man gjort sedan webbens början: publicera text på nätet, men dagens blog-mjukvara är smidiga system för att arbeta med, administrera och publicera texterna utan att behöva sitta och koda html…
