Team up with Red Bull Racing Honda and Oracle for Hands-on Lab teaching machine learning with racing data

Oracle invites you to use its cloud platform, OCI, with race data in a no-stress, beginner-friendly environment.

Being intimidated is an uncomfortable thing. And when you’re intimidated not by an individual, not by a big life goal (saving for retirement, anyone?), but by a discipline, it’s hard to know where to start.

It gets worse — putting off learning about the thing feels good in the moment but makes your situation more precarious. While you take longer to put it off, everyone else is catching up, the discipline itself evolves, existing literature and documentation become outdated.

Phew, I need to lay down!

For many developers, machine learning (ML) is that big, scary thing. Developers may feel at home with their particular side of the front-end or back-end situation, but when it comes to machine learning, dipping a toe into the freezing lake of big data is enough reason to stay on shore.

This is why we are offering you the opportunity to team up with Oracle and Red Bull Racing Honda to join a series of Hands-on Labs which uses real race data to teach machine learning.

These labs, three in total, will be progressive in terms of their difficulty. This means that the first lab will be for beginners with no background in machine learning, the next session will be for developers with intermediate experience, and the final lab will use advanced ML techniques. A developer without ML experience can start with the first lab and continue through the second and third labs, which will be announced soon.

For now, the first lab kicks off on August 11, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST. During the lab, attendees can expect to sign up for an Always-Free tier account on OCI. This account provides more than enough fire power to train an ML model and provides developers with an OCI account which they can use after the session ends.

After signing up for an Always-Free tier account, attendees will be given documentation which they can follow at their own pace. Though these guides will enough to start and finish training your ML model, Oracle data scientists will be on stand-by, digitally available to help field any questions.

If you love high speed racing and want to develop machine learning algorithms, come hang out with us and see how it works!
