Yesterday the Artificial Intelligence Meetup Frankfurt celebrated it’s first anniversary and was hosted by the Deutsche Bahn in the Silvertower in the heart of Frankfurt. I attended for the first time and was quite curious as there were more than 200 registered attendees – nearly twice as much as at the already very well developing SDC Meetups in Stuttgart.
Yesterday the 5th Connected Autonomous Driving Meetup was held in Stuttgart once again, this time in the Connectory and with special guest David Silver, head of Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Nanodegree program, and once again sponsored by Bosch, thank you very much at this point and to Fouad, Rainer and all the others for the organisation.
Yesterday I had the chance to participate in a Meetup for the first time – it was an awesome event in Stuttgart Vaihingen, where Bosch and Daimler develop the urban, autonomous solutions of the future together:
A detailed review of Udacity’s recently introduced Intro to Self-Driving Cars Nanodegree program
In this post, my second public blog post at all, I want to give you a detailed review of the impressions I got within the two month journey of my first Nanodegree, the “Intro to Self-Driving Cars”.
This is a new Nanodegree which has just been announced by Udacity at the end of September 2017 and started with it’s first cohort in October. It’s target is to lay a solid knowledge foundation for students who want to start a career as Engineer for Self-Driving Cars via the following Self-Driving Car Engineer degree or to just get an impression of the fascinating world of Self-Driving Cars.
As of writing a student who successfully graduates in this Nanodegree will also gain automatic admission to the “Self-Driving Car Engineer” Nanodegree for which you normally have to apply and hope first.
But for now – Let’s finally dive in!
Welcome to my blog – Path to Level 5 – and my first public blog post.
The intention of this blog is to give others an impression about the current developments of Self-Driving cars, in which Level 5 describes the level of full autonomy in which a car needs no human intervention anymore at all, Deep Learning, a method by which computers can learn by “experience” like humans, and to document my way as Udacity student on the road to an engineer of Self-Driving cars and theirs “mind” using techniques such as Deep Learning.
