We chose to call neural networks 'deep learning'. I seem to have a minor issue with this name as I think more appropriate name (at least for now) would be 'deeper learning'. Why deeper instead of deep? Well, if you look how wide current neural networks are (how many features are coming out) and how deep they are (number of layers), it seems that for a lot of neural networks - they are way more wide than deep. For example - Resnet for CIFAR-10 has 41 layers and 512 features are coming out. It seems wider than deep, hence I believe it's more of a "deeper learning" than "deep learning".
