One of the first modules in our Self-Driving Car Nanodegree program will be Deep Learning. This is such a fun topic!
We’ll be covering behavioral cloning, which is a technique whereby you drive the car (or the simulated car, in this case) yourself and then pass the data to a neural network. The neural network trains on your driving data and auto-magically learns how to drive the car, without any other information. You don’t have to tell it about the color of the road or which way to turn or where the horizon is. You just pass in data of your own driving and it learns.
By the end, students will be building their own neural networks to drive cars, just like in this video.
