I think that "deep learning" is already a standard expression, so this tag should be the main tag. The tag could also exist on this website, given that the expression "deep neural network" is also common, but I would not say that it is a synonym for . A deep network is a network that is deep (that is, it possesses "many" layers). However, deep learning is not just concerned with the architecture of the NNs, but it also concerned with the learning part.
