If you want to learn more about Deep Learning, Google launched an Deep Learning course on Udacity. The course will take you 6 hrs/week over a three month period.
In case you need to master your fundamentals first, the company enrolled a Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree program to build the foundations necessary to succeed in the Deep Learning course.
At the date, the course registered already 54.000 students, which shows the interest of this currently very popular branch of machine learning.
