Call for Participation
MEXT enPiT-Pro Smart SE program “Global development and cooperation project in data analytics”
July 17-18, 2021 Green Computing Systems Center, Waseda University
Purpose of the project
The purpose of this 2-day team-based project course is for students to have the experience of working with professional engineers from different cultures in the area of Machine learning and Data analytics in English. This is Non-credit course for university students.
Participants from industry and academia will form a team to develop a model and algorithm that drive a small autonomous car, AWS DeepRacer, on a track under a contest environment. Teams will use reinforcement learning algorithms to train their artificial intelligence to complete a round fastest. This is a good opportunity to connect with working professionals from the Smart SE program whose background is in cutting-edge ICT.
Smart SE program is a certification program on smart systems and services that utilize various technologies such as IoT, cloud storage and computing, big data, and artificial intelligence. Smart SE is developed as part of the education network for Practical information Technologies (enPiT-Pro) project, funded by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
