Abstract: Recently, deep learning becomes the hottest area in AI that draws great attentions even of people not in the field. In this short paper, the reason behind the success of deep learning is discussed. We argue that the success of deep learning is due to its nature of learning abstract representations. We also propose some directions of developing deep model to overcome its limitations.
