How evolutionary selection can train more capable self-driving cars

On Jul 25, 2019
@demishassabis shared
RT @DeepMindAI: We’re excited to announce the results of our research collaboration with @Waymo, applying Population Based Training (PBT) to help make the process of training neural nets in their self-driving cars more effective and efficient. https://t.co/O78PBpdBs1 https://t.co/70kchhbcOO
