In the words of the deep learning godfathers, Yann LeCun, Yoshua Bengio, and Geoffrey Hinton, "Deep learning allows computational models that are composed of multiple processing layers to learn representations of data with multiple levels of abstraction." These deep neural networks can be used either inside the robot for fast, real-time processing or in the cloud for meta-information gathering or more complex inference.
