This RC car was taught how to drift using machine learning

Machine learning is an amazing new branch of science that focuses on coaxing computers to act without being specifically programmed to do so. The general formula to accomplish this is to give a computer a clear end goal, and then let it fail over and over again until it learns from those mistakes and finally achieves that goal.
