The search giant wants to teach more people how some of its products function

Google engineers are sharing their knowledge through a new online course.

The class, on education website Udacity, will focus on deep learning, a machine learning technique that makes use of multiple layers of neural networks in order to better understand data sets. Google uses deep learning in products like its Photos app, which can automatically categorize users’ pictures based on the objects in them.

The three-month course, which requires about six hours of work per week, are comprised of four main lessons that teach students the benefits of deep learning systems and train them to build their own learning models.
