# Should the [deep-network] tag be replaced by [deep-learning]?

The latter is the canonical way to refer to the field, and its unclear when, if ever, [deep-network] would be preferable. Its a small change, but it'd help avoid very odd sounding questions like "What is Deep Network?"

• Sorry, I'm kinda new to this AI stuff. I started working with AI two months ago, so I don't know all the terms. :/ (I had the "very odd sounding" question.) – baranskistad Aug 2 '16 at 22:15

I would say yes. I don't know many people who use the term "deep network" like that. You may hear "deep neural network", but that's still basically synonymous with "deep learning" as far as I can tell.

If deep-learning is preferred, then deep-network should be set up as a tag synonym for it, that way if anyone tries to use it, it gets mapped to the preferred name. We need someone with 1250 reputation to do that.

• Is there some reputation threshold to be able to do that? Can't find that option :-/ – zergylord Aug 2 '16 at 20:41
• @zergylord Yes 1250 is the required reputation. I've linked to the meta answer that talks about them. – WilliamKF Aug 2 '16 at 21:03
