I'm Building
My pet project was to write a learning AI for Street Fighter 4. It learned to walk forward and attack, but I didn't generate enough training data to learn how to perform combos and super moves. ML is not at all the right approach if you want to beat real players of the game, so it's shelved, probably permanently.

RJ's Answer
Race car driver. I have an engineer's mind, without an artistic bone in my body, so the mechanics required to build a good car and the physics required to drive it well appeal to me. It's exciting to move that fast, and to balance incremental improvement in lap times with knowledge of the limit of your abilities.
