In this challenge, which will take place from September 10 to October 19, 2018, you will collaborate with your peers in small teams to deploy machine learning within a robotics context. We expect your methods to rely on deep neural networks, developed on Tensorflow in Python. Note that your major input will be related to machine learning, and less so to robotics.
All code that you will develop within this challenge will be made public. You, as anyone else, will have the rights to subsequently deploy it. We will also ask you to blog about your research work in our special blog.
As part of the challenge, each team will be provided with two Panda 7-DoF robotic arms from Franka Emika. Additionally, we will give you access to ample GPU-based computing power.
