Trackmania and Machine Learning

I’m not that into video games — I can use one hand the games I actually played and appreciated —, but one of those is Trackmania. You have a car, and you just use the four arrows to make it to the end of the hotwheelesque, loop-filled stadium-sized track.

Now if you are into machine learning, self-driving cars, David and Felipe just posted a wonderful survey about the history of ML in Trackmania. While real-world self-driving cars take all the attention, there is much you can study with just a compute game.
