The AI driving olympics (the duckies go to NIPS!)

We are excited to announce the AI Driving Olympics (AI-DO), a new competition focused around AI for self-driving cars. The first edition is going to be at NIPS 2018; the second edition will be at ICRA 2019.

The competition comprises challenges of increasing complexity for self-driving cars, from lane following to fleet management, all on the Duckietown platform.

We are excited because AI-DO at NIPS 2018 is going to be the first robotic competition at a machine learning conference, and in a way that is completely reproducible: you send your code — we run it on our robots. Or, you can get a Duckiebot for yourself through the Kickstarter run by our newly-established non-profit Duckietown foundation.

For all details and rules about AI-DO see here.

The AI Driving Olympics is presented in collaboration with 6 academic institutions: ETH Zürich (Switzerland), Université de Montréal (Canada), National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (USA), Tsinghua University (China) and Georgia Tech (USA), as well as two industry co-organizers: nuTonomy (a self-driving car company) and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
