DBS: Taking machine learning for a spin
DBS asked Euromoney to join the machine-learning training it gives to thousands of its employees, which includes how to programme your own autonomous racing car. It’s all about getting staff to understand one another.
Euromoney is teaching a virtual car to go around a virtual racetrack, instructed by a team of distant data scientists on a Zoom call. And despite all these removals from reality, we’re addicted.
After four hours of training and experimentation, Euromoney has succeeded in getting our car – WrightRacer1, because we have a bit of an ego problem – to get around the track in half a minute. Our teacher, Ray, is politely approving, though it turns out his lap record is under eight seconds.
